My jaw dropped recently when I found out all humpback whales, in a given region, sing the same song. The song evolves over time, but it evolves for all of the whales at the same time.

Parvati Magazine September 2018: Amplification

Which channel we listen to and amplify is entirely up to us. This month, we unveil a new regular column called YogisRead More
