February 2019: Connection

Welcome to the February 2019 edition of Parvati Magazine.

Despite what our five senses may indicate, we are never alone. Though we may think of ourselves as separate, we are continuously held within the whole. Even when we have a sense of “me” or “mine”, we exist within something much greater. No matter how deep our habit of feeling disconnected may be, we can never be outside the fabric of life.

This month’s issue of Parvati Magazine celebrates this inherent interconnection. Be inspired by the work of Amnesty International, and Marten Thorslund of We Don’t Have Time, to awaken the world to our need to care for each other and Nature. Discover the integrity and compassion of prAna clothing. Learn from MAPS supporter Wallace Nichols about why time in Nature benefits our minds. The newest Yogis Unite member, Koya Webb, underscores the connection between self-love and love for our planet. My guided meditation for self-love helps you deepen your awareness of this connection. And in a special double feature, hear from two of this year’s Grammy nominees for Best Children’s Album, Falu Shah and Tim Kubart, about how they connect with audiences.

Plus, to welcome you into how much MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, means to me and to all of us at Parvati Magazine, we debut a new column this month for MAPS Ambassadors to share their joy in this work. This month, you will hear from Vandana Erin Ryder, author of the MAPS Treaty, about how she got connected with MAPS.

Your essence is one with Nature. Aspects of your psyche that interfere with your true nature and your fullest health also interfere with the total health of the planet. You are literally interconnected in the seen realms through your biochemistry, and interconnected through the unseen via your thoughts, energy and intentions.

As you move into the fullness of your being and release your attachments to the places within that keep you small, you allow your magnificence to shine. In so doing, you celebrate who you are and your oneness with this glorious planet, that supports you unconditionally

I would love to hear from you about what you enjoyed this month, and what you would like more of. Please be in touch at parvati@parvatimagazine.com!

May you feel joyfully connected now and always.

Love yourself.
Love others.
Love our world.

We are one Earth family.
