My visit to the Shri Kashi Vishwanath Mandir (The Golden Temple) of Lord Shiva in Varanasi, India in March of 2020 changed me forever. Traveling with my dear friend Arti my trip to India felt divinely orchestrated and this experience was no different, it was also one of the most powerful spiritual experiences I have had in this lifetime.


Coming back to teaching in live in the flesh after not being able to for so long in person with the pandemic has been a breath of fresh air and it also had its challenges.

In Search of the Perfect Chai

Last year I was in India on a spiritual pilgrimage with one of my dearest soul sisters of this lifetime, Arti. She and I lived at Kripalu, in western Massachusetts in the 1980’s together when it was both an ashram and a program center.

For me gratitude is the most powerful practice I have ever come to through to date. It's simple, it takes very little time, it's free, and it can be done anywhere at any time. It has the power to change your mood, change your perspective, and bring more joy and peace into your life.

One of my biggest inspirations is Surya (the sun God) rising over the edge of the sea. Ignite my inner fire and fill me with energy and love for life. I am never disappointed by the ever-changing cloud formations, colors, the calm or rough sea that reflects the sunlight, the shoreline full of stones and shells, and the changing air.


Last year, while in India, I had the opportunity to see a shoemaker on the streets of Kashi (Varanasi) repairing shoes. The Baddha Konasana (shoemaker's pose) asana came to light in a royal way. Kona means "angle" in Sanskrit and Baddha means "tied".
