I am at Peace

The last 20 years of my life have been dedicated to balance, health and being in my heart space, following an abrupt departure from Corporate America and two rounds of breast cancer.  I moved into a spiritual community (an Ashram), began practicing the spiritual practices of meditation, sadhana, and seva.

Little did I know what I was doing, and what I was in for!!  It was truly a transformative journey, an incredible opportunity — taking me deeply within, and literally burning up so many patterns that were trapping my spirit within.  When I asked my teacher to show me the meaning of sadhana (… religious s?dhan?, which both prevents an excess of worldliness and molds the mind and disposition (bh?va) into a form which develops the knowledge of dispassion and non-attachment.  S?dhan? is a means whereby bondage becomes liberation.) and the meaning of seva (selfless service, work offered to God) — the journey began — and still deepens even 20 years later.

Through many trials (by fire), my being has been purified, and continues, and now, each moment becomes brighter and more beautiful.  I gained a deep self love, I gained an amazing healthy outlook,  a tolerance, and a sense of wonder about everything.  When I’m challenged, my meditation and my service always uplift me and show me the divine.  What a blessing!!! I’m in awe.

The intention of this website/blog is to share beauty, health, nutrition, yoga, body care and healthy lifestyle.  That these blessings may be shared and uplift others!!
