Welcome!

Healing the heart is my life’s purpose—the heart here refers not merely to the organ that circulates blood, but to the core of reality.

My first book, Shakti Rising, explores the ten great wisdom goddesses known as the Dasha Mahavidya who represent facets of this great heart of reality. These goddesses dance in our lives and minds, no matter who we are or what our path is.

My second book, The Heart of Wellness, presents a paradigm shift in how we think about health and disease, and presents the Bliss Prescription to dive into the great heart and discover the gems of wellness deep within it.

Here in this space you will find my online courses, writings, events, chants and various media interviews where I talk about heart disease, wellness, Yoga, Tantra, Ayurveda, and Vedanta.

Welcome.

Shakti Yatra 2019!

If you’re looking for a deep dive into Shakti Sadhana, this is your opportunity! Intensify your journey within as we journey through some of the most sacred Shakti sites (peethams) in Northern India. The Shakti Yatra will be a time of intense sadhana supported by teachings, poojas, and practice, along with an exploration of the colors and textures of India.

A yatra (pronounced yAH-trAH) is much more than a vacation. It’s a sacred journey where the outer reality of the site fuses with our inner experience of the divine, and transforms us on all levels. To go on a yatra is to embark on a path that is mysterious and adventurous. We return from a yatra changed, not only because of the novelty of traveling to exotic lands, but because we’ve been touched by the grace of the sacred site. This 10-day journey is such a yatra.
