Healing the heart—the heart here refers not merely to the organ that circulates your blood, but to the heart 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. Shakti Rising was recently awarded a Nautilus Gold Book Award in the “Religion/Spirituality of Eastern Thought” category.

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 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.
