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.

The Sublime Art of Pūjā
In this course, we will explore the exquisite practice of the Pañcopacāra Pūjā, where a deity is worshiped and adored through 5 offerings.
The beauty of the Pañcopacāra Pūjā is that with its correct understanding and application, the fruit of the pūjā is gained in real time, as it is being executed. Once the procedure is learned and practiced, it can be applied to any other deity with slight modifications, and it can be expanded to longer pūjās with more steps and elaboration.
Here, we will learn not only how to do the pūjā, but the nondual philosophy behind it that will enable not only a deepening of sādhanā but also an exponential growth of self-awareness. The course includes supplemental materials including handouts and mantra recordings.

Women's Sādhana Immersion 2019
Due to many daily requests for one-on-one sessions, which I’m unable to commit to at the moment, I’m instead offering a Sādhana Immersion for Women. Dates are not set yet, but it will likely begin in August and run for 6 months, followed by an in-person retreat.
Admission is based on several pre-requisites including a daily meditation practice for at least 6 months prior, absolute commitment to the teachings of the immersion, willingness to make lifestyle changes, staying on top of homework/assignments, check-ins at recommended intervals, and the ability to hold loving space for each other. It also requires exclusive commitment to this program for the duration. In other words, this is not for the casually curious or for beginners.
The purpose of this Immersion is radical awakening for women. If this of interest, please complete this survey, which will remain open until the end of June 2019. Decision letters and invitations to join the program will go out in July 2019.
