Welcome to the September 2014 edition of Parvati Magazine. The word “fierceness” may conjure images of aggression, even violence. But from a spiritual perspective, fierceness can sit alongside us during our meditation practice, as we find fierce, single-pointed focus even when our mind creatively attempts to pull us from this moment. Being fierce along the path means finding profound courage and compassion to overcome habitual patterns and situations that eclipse our true magnificence. Fierceness inspires us to face rather than run from life’s challenges. Fierceness is not about attacking orRead More
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 recentlyRead More
Welcome to the May 2014 issue of Parvati Magazine. This edition of Parvati Magazine goes to print on the Easter weekend.

As I share in my wellness article this month, prayers are always answered, just not always the way we may thinkRead More
Welcome to the March 2014 edition of Parvati Magazine. Many of us seek a little magic in our lives, whether it be in something that adds sparkle to our wardrobe, or in the toe-tingling connection we have with someone who brightens our day, or in the zest we hope to embody that helps us to win others over. But when faced with things that shimmer, we must remember that the difference between a gem and a trinket, between genuine engagement and hiding from the truth, lies in our ability to wiselyRead More
Welcome to the February 2014 edition of Parvati  Magazine. Sobriety is a word we hear usually in relation to those suffering from substance abuse. Wikipedia describes sobriety as “the condition of not having any measurable levels of, or effects from, mood-altering drugs”. We think of addiction usually in terms of substances such as alcohol and drugs. But any habit we have that interferes with our quality of living may in fact be an addiction. If we do not know how to moderate, we may be a shop-aholic, work-aholic, rage-aholic, gossip-aholic,Read More
