This Former President is Helping to Save the World

It’s a long way from the equatorial islands of Seychelles to the frigid expanse of the North Pole. But what happens in the Arctic affects us all, and this former Seychelles president knows it.

Since stepping down, he founded the James Michel Foundation to focus on blue economy (sustainable use of ocean resources) and climate change. He is the author of “Rethinking the Oceans: Towards the Blue Economy”. Seychelles’s 105 islands are especially vulnerable to rising sea levels which areRead More

THABO-Music
There’s a question that keeps coming up in the comments on Thabo’s music on YouTube, and that is: “Why don’t more people know about this?” The Zimbabwe-born Thabo’s name means joy in his mother tongue Ndebele. His songs unerringly target the heart of issues our world struggles with today, in heartfelt messages and an exquisite voice, wrapped in glorious grooves. We caught up with him at his home in Huddersfield, UK looking relaxed and exhilarated after his band’s recent UK tour with Seal. Parvati Magazine: You have a massive voice.Read More
Parvati Magazine-April-2018-Being
Welcome to the April 2018 edition of Parvati Magazine. “The only thing that ultimately matters is this: Can I sense my essential Beingness, the I Am, in the background of my life at all times?” – Eckhart Tolle The subject this month, “Being”, is so close to my heart that for a while, I called my blog posts “Being Love Letters”. If you meditate, you may know of the space between breaths, the momentary pause that exists between the inhale and exhale. It is the space between thoughts that opens theRead More

YEM-Yoga-Parvati Devi-Goddess Pose
This month, we look at Goddess Pose, Deviasana, a visually striking position for the body as well as one that calls for rooted strength, stability and openness. Devi in Sanskrit refers to the primordial divine feminine force. This asana is also known as Utkata Konasana or Fierce Angle Pose. But remember that the fierceness of the Goddess arises from the profound surrender into love and non-attachment. It never comes from the constriction of a separate sense of “me” who is doing. If you find yourself egotistic about feeling fierce orRead More
Meditation Interconnection-Parvati
Your life flows in joy, ease and beingness when you get out of your own way. The tighter you hold on to the idea that you are the one doing it all, the more you suffer. When you try to make this moment as your ego would have it, the further you move away from the sweet balance that exists in the now. When you take pause from this effortful fight, you open to see that you have in fact no control. This is not because you are not powerful,Read More
Zero Waste Fashion-Tonle
Behind tonlé, Cambodia’s first zero waste fashion brand, is Rachel Faller, who wanted to make clothes that made a difference.
