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 Rivers is a writer, teacher, and speaker who splits his time between the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina and the Colorado Rockies. His personal journey of awakening began at the age of 30 on an awe-inspiring trip to Maui, Hawaii. It was there on that enchanted island where the profound healing power of the Earth spoke through to his heart and helped him overcome a difficult period of alcohol abuse.
After returning home from that transformative experience, 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.
