MICHAEL A. SINGER is a spiritual teacher and #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Untethered Soul, The Surrender Experiment and the recent Living Untethered: Beyond the Human Predicament. For over four decades, Michael has been passionately teaching spirituality and mindfulness.
Michael’s spiritual journey began in 1971. While working on his doctorate in economics, Michael decided to go into seclusion to focus on yoga and meditation. It was in 1975 that Michael founded the Temple of the Universe, a now long-established yoga and meditation center where people of any religion or set of beliefs can come together to experience inner peace.
Singer is also a successful entrepreneur that has made major contributions in the areas of business, education, healthcare, and environmental protection. He created a leading-edge software package that transformed the medical practice management industry, as well as the founding CEO of a billion-dollar public company whose achievements are archived in the Smithsonian Institution.
Tony and Sage Robbins are excited to share this special presentation from a 2022 private event with their Platinum Partners in Mexico. Here, Michael teaches us the importance of surrender and how to “let go'' to remove the negative blocks inside us and allow positive emotions – like joy and happiness – to flow through us with grace and ease.
