Featured Presentation by Dr. Siri Sat Nam

The Pocket Guru: Guidance and Mantras for Spiritual Awakening and Emotional wisdom

A licensed therapist who stars on Viceland’s The Therapist, Dr. Siri Sat Nam provides insight to his new book The Pocket Guru, which offers emotional centeredness and mental peace. Using Dr. Siri’s calming style, the book presents readers with 108 topics to focus on—including commitment, forgiveness, intimacy, and love—and mantras to help them find personal growth and fulfillment. Packed with wisdom on discovering spiritual harmony, meditative practices targeting 11 different aspects of self, and a simple format that invites readers to dip in and out or read the book from start to finish, this is a rich source for deepening self-awareness.

The Pocket Guru

Dr. SiriSiri Sat Nam is a licensed marriage family therapist (LMFT) who received his B.A. in Psychology from Carlton College in Northfield, Minnesota, his M.A. in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University and his Ph.D. in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Carpinteria, California.

He has been recognized internationally as a dynamic lecturer on Eastern spiritual philosophies and as a master teacher of yoga; he has facilitated workshops throughout U.S. and Europe (ie., Holland, Germany, Italy, Finland and France).

His writings have been published in Whole Life Times, Alternatives and Awareness magazines, all of which present a holistic perspective on well-being. He received National status in the ABC Television Mentorship Grant for his filmed research documentary on Ghana, Africa. The title of his dissertation was “The Phenomenological Study of African-American Men Raised without their Biological Fathers”.
