Welcome to the August 2015 edition of PARVATI MAGAZINE.

As this issue goes to print, I and several colleagues have just completed the Climate Reality Leadership training with Al Gore.

Over the course of the training, Al Gore emphasized repeatedly the need to act in recognition that our planet is overheated, our climate out of balance and our cultural habits the cause. No one is immune from the effects of global warming. As such, each of us is called both practically and morally to take responsibility for our actions.

It is timely therefore that this month’s theme is on action, movement and dance. Life is like a dance and we all are lovingly held within a vast and intelligent universe within which we grow and evolve. This issue features articles from many caring souls who are acting in accordance with their inner inspiration, in their own way.

May this month’s articles help you to connect with your deep joy and act in the effervescence of inspired action.

From the point of view of the ego, surrendering may seem like we are giving up and somehow taking a loss. But when we look deeper, we see that
