Reasons to Believe

Anis Mojgani

About this talk

When Anis Mojgani challenges his audience to “come closer, come into this,” he’s not asking them to move closer to the stage; he’s asking them to move more resolutely into their own lives. “Your smiles are simply signs of how sacred your life actually is, so step into it.”
