Blue Monarch Presents Author Jake Ducey
Inspirational author, activist, poet, lyricist, yoga instructor, and founder of non-profit organization The Self Reliance Institute, Jake Ducey brings his unique voice and experience to an evening with us at New Thought Center for Spiritual Living.
Jake is determined to share his empowering messages to ignite and inspire a new generation of truth seekers. Without a map, or a plan, at age 19, he left behind a drug-fueled life and college basketball scholarship to wander the world in search of meaning. His spiritual adventure resulted in his debut book Into the Wind: My Six-Month Journey Wandering the World for Life's Purpose (Waterfront Publishing/ April 11, 2013).
Through his fearless journey, without money and at times near death, Jake shows that we can find our dreams by following our heart and letting our spirit be guided by the "wind." Journeying from Guatemala, where he encounters a chance meeting with a Mayan Shaman and volunteers with orphans, to finding himself backpacking and living in a tent in Australia, to nearly losing his life in Indonesia and finally ending up at a fourteen day silent meditation retreat in Thailand, Jake shows that our destiny is in reach if we only look within ourselves first. He finds that everything he was seeking in the world was within him the whole time. Miracles and synchronicities abound and his life becomes a true chronicle of what is possible when we surrender to life with an open heart and humility.
" I wanted to prove that we are more powerful than we've been led to believe and when we leap toward our destiny for the highest good of all, the whole world unfolds for us. Once we all do this, we will transform our world. I hope by reading my book people will realize that each of us can set a goal and obtain it, that we can consciously create our realities, and that whatever we envision we can accomplish," shares Jake.
Jake is determined to make a difference in the world. Inspired by the joyful spirit of the children he met in third world countries Jake started a non-profit organization entitled "Self Reliance Institute" to support giving back to those less fortunate. He has already raised money to sponsor the building of a home and school for orphans in Guatemala and he regularly works with the homeless communities in downtown San Diego.
A percentage of his book proceeds will go towards various philanthropic endeavors sponsored by Jake's charity.
His Lake Oswego appearance is part of a multi-city "Inspire My Generation" tour. His book is available at the NTCSL bookstore now.
