Welcome to the November 2016 edition of Parvati Magazine. When we pause to consider for a moment the many ways in which we are attached to doing in order to feel a sense of purpose, we quickly see that we are habituated into thinking that we are the very force that gives us life. We have lost sight of the life force that flows through us to sustain us in each moment, the reality that we are in essence that very flow. Going with the flow is not passive, but anRead More

Welcome to the September 2016 edition of Parvati Magazine. The process of our soul’s evolution involves a purification of our distorted perceptions that sees ourselves as separate, suffering entities.

Welcome to the June 2016 edition of Parvati Magazine. The summer solstice is a time when the vitality in nature is at its highest. Not only is this the longest day of the year, it is also when nature infuses the soil with the greatest amount of vitality. It is the most vibrant time of the year.

Welcome to the May 2016 edition of Parvati Magazine. When we were children, we instinctively called for our mother to help us up after we took a spill, or to soothe our aching hearts. Our mother was to come and wrap us up with that perfect embrace, whisper the perfect words that were to help us find our way back to wholeness. Or so we hoped. Whether we had a “perfect” childhood or one with more complexity, as we mature, we eventually come to realize that we must learn toRead More

If you have been feeling snowed under, stuck or hidden in theRead More
