Summer 2014: Freedom and Delight



Welcome to the summer 2014 edition of Parvati Magazine This issue has a double theme: Freedom and Delight.

My summer has been both delightful and full of fresh insights that have given me a sense of new-found freedom. Since the last Parvati Magazine publication, we launched my new website. We hosted a preview party of my soon-to-be released music video “Yoga in the Nightclub”. We are in post-production for a second music video for my song “Shanti Om”. (Please watch the teasers!)

On a personal level, my spiritual teacher Amma recently blessed me by officiating my wedding to my long-time partner Rishi Deva. I am now married!

Being free means we can experience delight in the wonder and beauty of every moment in this human existence.

May the articles this month inspire you towards your own sense of freedom and help you to feel delight in every day.

    • Meditation: Wanting, by Catherine Rathbun (Lama Jetsun Yeshe)

      Wanting is both active and passive. “I am wanting in clear mindedness” is a very different statement to “I want clear mindedness.” One is a statement of lack; the other a statement of desire. Generally, in consciousness circles when we speak of wanting, we are speaking of the grasping part of our psyche that attaches importance to getting something. In

      Business: Play in the Workplace, by Rishi Deva

      From everything I’ve studied and seen in business, the ones that are successful are the ones that have fun in the work that they do. There are two different kinds of playfulness. There’s a playfulness that is connected, integrated, engaged in the workplace. It’s really important to enjoy the work that you do. On the other hand, if somebody’s definition

It can leave you feeling helpless, hopeless and at the worst of times, shameful to be a woman.  As a result, we often feel that we need to

      Fitness: Get Energized, by Sandra O’Brien

      As I write this month’s article, here in Oakville, there are slow but sure signs of spring approaching. Rainy days are replacing the seemingly never-ending snow storms of this past winter. Warmer temperatures – that is, temperatures above zero – inspire us crazy Canucks to roll down the car window and deeply inhale the fresh air. That first warmer day

      Music: The Rentals, by Rishi Deva

      In September 1994, I had just graduated university and started my first real job, at an indie record label in Toronto. Apart from helping many bands, one of the biggest perks was being guest listed to attend concerts at almost all of Toronto’s music venues. I was out three times a week at CD releases, press conferences, and concerts just
