Life has a way of coming at us fast, and when it does, we’re usually left searching for answers.

That’s where Patti Montella found herself early in life after the death of a beloved friend and the unraveling of her marriage—seeking the universal truths of life.

Becoming Unshakeable is an accounting of some of the twists, turns, and hurdles Patti encountered on her journey, along with the astounding spiritual revelations that unveiled themselves along the way. There were many times when her faith on the path was shaken to the core. What she now knows in hindsight is that those were the precise moments that awakened her to the part of herself that is unshakable.

Through the guidance and teachings of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, she has experienced what it means to be transformed mentally and spiritually.
