Understandably, COVID 19 has been a harbinger of mass chaos and unspeakable tragedy for many people. However, Forrest Rivers, an author and inspirational speaker maintains in his newly released and highly uplifting book, COVID-19 and Humanity’s Spiritual Awakening, that if we are able to still our minds and fully be with the immensity of this moment, we can start to see a different narrative emerging: one of hope, personal empowerment and spiritual awakening. Forrest’s uplifting message is one that is desperately needed in these times of great suffering and division.
Forrest became interested in the spiritual traditions of the Far East and began to immerse himself in the teachings of Buddhist, Hindu, and Taoist mystics and took the pen name Forrest Rivers in honor of the Earth and her profound healing power. Today, Forrest is a teacher of meditation and has started meditation gatherings at each of the schools that he has taught at during his over decade long run as a community college professor. Today, Forrest spends a great deal of his time guiding others to look within and become the best versions of themselves. In the very near future, it is his dream to start a wilderness retreat center that focuses on the spirit of service and inner work.
