How to Release the Heat of Anger Before It Burns Your World

You can see it in the record-warm Northern Hemisphere winter that failed to bring enough ice back to the Arctic Ocean, through the exceptionally hot Southern Hemisphere summer that fed devastating wildfires in Australia – and in the fevers that have ravaged the world during an unprecedented pandemic: our world is too hot. When you become quiet and listen deeply, perhaps you can sense the unnatural heat that pulses through all things. For the sake of our inner and outer peace, we must each come to terms with the ways we fuel that heat with the fires in our minds. Last week, we began to explore the emotional reactivity that harms our personal and collective wellbeing. All of this is part of the shadow work that this workshop offers to help you find inner peace. We are digging into the unseen territories of our minds and hearts, the aspects that keep us in cycles of suffering. Stick with it. I promise there is light at the end of this journey. And I am with you in every step. Our culture tends to praise those who push themselves hard. We justify this by saying these people are the best at what they do. But perhaps we do so at the expense of our greater well-being. In the…

How to Stop Controlling Your Feelings And Learn to Trust the Flow

In recent weeks we have been doing powerful work together by understanding, witnessing and releasing the sorry stories that interfere with our experience of peace. Thank you for your courage to go to places that may not feel comfortable at times. We can see this as a sort of spring cleaning of our minds, hearts and souls, a way to let go of that which no longer serves so that we make room for the new. This week, we turn a corner as we look at how our emotions—and our relationship to them—affect our inner peace. Being honest and present for how we feel is key to finding our inner peace sanctuary. When we consider emotions and all the colours they express, we may feel that they are antithetical to the calm we seek. Inner peace may conjure a sense of being in a neutral state where we are unaffected by anything within or around us. We may avoid or suppress our emotions, hoping to somehow escape their waves. Yet, we will not find peace this way. Emotions are like a river or an ocean, energy in motion. Whenever the waters gets dammed or pent up, it needs to return to healthy flow. Blocking the fluidity of our emotions ultimately desiccates the calm, clear lake of…

Mother’s Day And Mother Nature: Beyond Give and Get to Balance Within The Whole

Happy Mother’s Day for those of you who celebrate it! It is a day to take pause and give thanks for motherly kindness, generosity and care. Over the last few weeks, we have been looking at the sorry stories we enable that keep us feeling less than who we are. We have put into practice the three steps to transformation— understand, witness and release—when we see a story playing out in our thoughts and actions. This week, as we cultivate inner peace, we look at how to go beyond the idea of give and take and consider instead how to live in balance within Mother Nature’s compassionate whole. A Mother’s love for her child is one of the strongest bonds in the universe. Willing to overcome adversity to protect her young, even at the expense of her own life, a mother’s internal compass that leads her to secure the wellbeing of her offspring is as deep and innate as the power of Mother Nature herself. Though we can clearly see it in women who have children, this force is not limited to the female gender, or even to those who have offspring. As an expression of Nature and our connection to her, we could say that this compassionate force exists within us all. Nature’s force of…

How to Heal Your Heart and Your Life by Braving the Depths of Entitlement

It seems as though our world is moving into a new stage in the coronavirus pandemic as some restrictions begin to lift. I am left with the question: have we learned the sobering lesson Nature has given us that we must honour its rhythms for our collective health? Have we listened to the urgent call to reawaken our interconnection as the foundation of our shared wellbeing? Are we willing to meet that which is with open hearts, ready to serve the greater good with courage and compassion? All of this begins as we choose inner peace, moment by moment. In support of this, let’s continue healing the sorry stories that keep us from inner peace, so that we may love ourselves, each other, and the world. Like the feelings of “no room for me” or “I gotta get it right”, the sorry story of “I suck” can creep into our minds and leave us feeling disconnected from the world, as though we simply do not deserve to be a part of it at all. We may rationalize or minimize the tendency, thinking that negative self-concepts are better than being excessively proud, or that they only hurt ourselves. But neither of these is true. There is essentially no difference between “I suck” and “I’m so great”, because…

How You Can Go Beyond the Perfection and Control of “Gotta Get It Right” to Find Peace and Lasting Happiness for a Healthy World

“I gotta get it right. I will never get it right no matter how hard I try, but I have to. If I don’t they’ll hate me. Everybody wants me to fail. They think I’m wrong. I gotta prove myself. I’ll show them. If I don’t I’ll die.” Such is your whispering inner chatter if you struggle with the “gotta get it right” sorry story. This painful tendency, like any other, does not live in isolation. As they say, misery seeks company. The need for perfection feeds off other self-deprecating thoughts, such as, “I am ugly, I am stupid, I am disgusting”. They in turn create and sustain the circumstances in your life for a voracious feeding frenzy of control, as you put all your effort into proving yourself beyond those negative ideas—and therefore “right”. Immersion in this type of thinking is often at the root of many people’s unhappy lives, and can even be at the core of addiction. Born of difficult childhoods and traumatic past experience, the “gotta get it right” sorry story is a hidden motivator for many successful and prominent people, as well as those who are frustrated feeling like they are struggling in the shadows of their true potential. While this tendency can drive people to be at the top of…

Breathe Deep. Look Within. You Have All The Room You Need.

The universe moves continually towards expansion. We are called to be our fullest selves, the greatest expression of who we are, and share our inner light with the world. In doing so, we need to overcome our “sorry stories”, the limiting beliefs that we hold on to, out of fear that if we let them go, we will not be loved. “I can’t speak up. I am too anxious to breathe. They don’t care what I think or feel. They never listen. I’m not safe.” These are just some of the ways we experience the “no room for me” sorry story. If we are deeply honest, most of us would confess that we have felt like this at some point or another, especially if we live in a state of constriction in any way. Perhaps today, compelled to remain in our homes, we feel it more than ever. To enable the “no room for me” sorry story means that at some level, we feel that we don’t have the space, or even the permission from the universe, to be our most natural self. But as we have been exploring, nothing could be further from the truth. When we give power to the “no room for me” impossibilities thought, we rob ourselves and the world of who…

You Have Always Been Good Enough. Now is the Time to Feel It In Your Bones.

Not good enough: most of us have felt that way at some point in our lives. For many, it is an ongoing undercurrent in their moment-to-moment thinking and day-to-day experience. Like a weed whose roots reach underground to choke our garden of confidence and courage, it impedes our ability to grow into a sincere sense of fulfillment and happiness. Why do we feel not good enough? Where does it come from? What can we do about it? Let’s take a look at these and more, this week, on our “Finding Your Inner Peace Sanctuary” workshop. Feeling not good enough is one of the many “sorry stories” that we need to address as we cultivate inner peace. At first glance, we may think that we only display feeling not good enough through the choices we make that seem less than ourselves. For example, perhaps we do not feel worthy of submitting our resume for our dream job, or asking the person we have been crushing on for months out on a date, or going for that little extra to polish ourselves up so that we feel at ease about the way we interact with the world. Feeling unworthy and choosing to hold back from life as a result, are indeed expressions of feeling not good enough. However,…

How to Find Your Way Back to a Calm, Clear Mind in Turbulent Times

How are you doing in this time of turbulence and isolation? Amid the devastating news and growing concern of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, as well as the need to direct the course of Parvati Foundation through the global crisis, I feel acutely aware of the importance of inner peace. Returning to a calm, clear mind is the greatest gift we can give ourselves to weather any storms that come. This week and in the following weeks on this “Finding Your Inner Peace Sanctuary” workshop, I will be here supporting you in finding a peaceful mind through these troubled times. Imagine a calm, clear lake on a sunny day. See its surface smooth and quiet, reflecting the light of the sun and embodying warmth, even while it remains steady and cool in its depths. Sense its vitality and freshness. Now consider that your mind has the potential for that radiant peacefulness. Yet somehow, especially in times of difficulty, our minds feel more like a turbulent sea. What once was transparently clear becomes clouded as storms churn up debris from the ocean floor. Then we find ourselves unable to see the moment as it is. We see only the refuse of lingering thoughts, unresolved emotions and old issues as they swirl through currents of our inner agitation. All…

How to Find the Gift in Crisis and Meet a Pandemic with an Open Heart

As I live mostly in isolation in my music studio these months to complete the music for GEM: Global Education for MAPS, I feel for the many people who need to live in isolation due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic unfolding all over the world – some of whom are very personally dear to me. I pray daily for all who are struggling with, or have lost loved ones due to, this virus. This unprecedented time makes inner peace more relevant than ever. We are called through COVID-19 to awaken interconnection, in order to reactivate our personal and global immunity. I will have lots more to say on this subject. This week, in support of your inner peace sanctuary and deep immunity, let’s take a look at how to let go, the third step of the three-step process of transformation that we have been exploring. There are many things we want to get rid of in our lives. It could be an old pair of skates, outdated electronics, or worn-out shirts. Likely, we either push them back into the corners of our closets and garages where they collect dust, or we gather them up and bring them to the appropriate donation or disposal site so that they are gone from our homes. We tend to be…

Our Interconnected World and the Coronavirus

Dear friends, As I am mostly working in isolation in my music studio these months to complete the music for GEM: Global Education for MAPS, I feel for the many people who are now forced to live in isolation due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic unfolding all over the world. I pray daily for all who are struggling with its effects or have lost loved ones due to it. Like many of you, I have people close to my heart who have been exposed to the virus. What brings me deep faith is knowing that in this exceptional time, we are called through COVID-19 to awaken to our inherent interconnection, in order to reactivate our personal and global immunity. In the coming days, I have more to say about this and how we can make a much needed shift and stay healthy on all levels. To keep in the loop, please connect with me here. If you are feeling alone or afraid, if you are struggling to find inner peace or even wondering whether peace has value, do reach out. Though we may be physically removed from one another, we are all in this together as one Earth family. I will be posting next week the third step of the three-step process for transformation and how…

WHY YOGA IN THE NIGHTCLUB

I am often asked what inspired me to bring yogic expression into the club scene. I answer easily. Yoga In the Nightclub is a natural expression of who I am as a musical artist and dedicated yogini. Yoga is not a physical practice but a way of life. It is about learning to be present in all one does, to see the divine here, now, in this moment. As such, yoga is everywhere. It is about feeling connected to something much greater than our limited ego or will. It is about being in service to life, feeling interconnected to that very life force. Yoga In The Nightclub is a celebration of life and a reminder that we can find awakened presence everywhere.

Yoga in the West is mostly known as a series of bendy physical exercises. Yet there is much more to it than fitness. Yoga’s systematic breath and body exercises, designed to clear the subtle channels in our energy system, prepare us for meditation, through which we may experience a life inspired by our interconnected, multidimensional true nature. Our body, that once was seen as “mine”, is no longer our identity, but a gift on loan from the divine. We care for it, but we are not attached to it. The practice of yoga offers us the opportunity to experience the transmutation of matter into pure light, embody the multidimensional and rest in the eternal.

WE ARE ALL CONNECTED

Hatha yoga, the physical practice of yoga, is just one of many aspects of yoga, which range from selfless service to astrology and prayer. The Sanskrit word “yoga” most simply translates to “union”, implying that the practice of any yoga will bring together our perceived sense of separateness. As a whole, yoga is an ancient science of life. It is a practical method of shedding excess and bringing us back from the self-delusion of separation from the divine so that we may realize our inherent interconnection to and ultimate oneness with it.

As we begin to understand that yoga is everywhere, we come to see how we are all connected in vast ways far beyond the limitations of our personal will and ego. What I do affects you, and vice versa. We are one earth family. At the heart of it all, we share the same heartbeat. Breathe to be. We are one.

AWAKENED LIVING

When we are open, life blossoms, just as a flower opens to welcome the morning sun.  We see that the sun, though it is millions of light years away, has a tender yet powerful relationship with the flower, as do the rain and the clouds. From this perspective we see that we are part of the whole. Life is a symphonic masterpiece with which, when we are open, we are completely resonant.

As we come to understand our oneness, we can revel in it with wonder and joy. We can consider in awe how immense it all is. We can let go of the idea that an illusory, isolated sense of self could possibly be in control, and open to an exquisite unfolding of life in absolute perfection. Our actions become not about “me” but about the whole. Each moment is integrated within the whole. No one decision is separate.

When we begin to see that each decision we make affects not just ourselves but everyone and everything on the planet, we act with more compassion. When we have more compassion, we realize the impact of our actions and we naturally want less and practice more kindness. As stewards of the Earth, we each are called to learn to live in harmony with ourselves, each other and our planet. We all breathe the same air and live on the same living organism, our planet. Varied in race and creed, we are all one family, children of the same mother, the planet Earth.

THE OPPORTUNITY FOR GRACE

In each moment, there is infinite grace. By becoming more conscious as we practice yoga on the mat, at work, at play or in the nightclub, we let go of the unnecessary and develop greater internal spaciousness which blooms throughout our lives. In this space new life and possibilities arise.

As we rest our awareness on the simple purity and grace of the breath, we realize - we are alive! We let go of wanting things from the future and the past and open to what is here and now. We feel as vast as the sky and rooted in the richness of this moment.

When we “breathe to be”, we understand our interconnection. We see that we are not the doers but a part of the whole, the same energy that is in the flowers and in the stars. We know that our essence is divine - from which we have come, to which we return.
