Video, Wisdom Bram Levinson: Echoes—What Remains of Us Bram Levinson lectures on the harsh reality of life and death, and urges his listeners to ask themselves how they wish to be remembered once they’re gone By Nicole McLaughlin “If you don’t have a clear intention, then you’re just living blind.” – Bram Levinson In this speakeasy talk from Wanderlust Tremblant 2014, Bram Levinson lectures on the harsh reality of life and death and urges his listeners to ask themselves how they wish to be remembered once they’re gone. As an internationally acclaimed author, experienced yoga teacher, and passionate blogger, Bram understands the value of a life well lived. He stresses the importance of balance, the benefits of bringing joy to the everyday, and the reality that we only have a short time on this planet—so we should make the best of what we have. According to Bram, life is a series of opportunities and choices. Some people float along on the current, going along with wherever it takes them. Others fight against it, choosing to make their own path and ride out the waves with determination. Yet no matter which way we live, the choices we make affect the people around us and, in turn, our choices shape the echo of our souls. Bram asks: What type of echo would you want to leave behind? Would you prefer to be remembered in a wreath of joy, health, and happiness, or one of depression, darkness, and unease? Whatever path you decide to take, stick with it. Make intention part of your life and go forward. “Have you ever actually considered that what you do right now, the words that come out of your mouth, the thoughts, the actions, are actually contributing to how you will be remembered?” – Bram Levinson To learn more about Bram Levinson, visit bramlevinson.com and check out his book The Examined Life.
