• Enjoy my live interview with Octavio Salvado, founder of The Practice Yoga Studio in Bali.

    We discuss the definition of true yoga, the real meaning of tantra and the place of a yogi in the modern world.

    Octavio began practicing the science of Kriya Yoga at age 19 and was eventually initiated into Kriya Yoga at 27 in Northern India. He pilgrimaged for a decade across India, deepening his understanding and practice of Yoga and Tantra; things that can’t be learned from books.

    He has accumulated dozens of certificates over the last two decades, but to him they matter very little. As the Masters say: ‘Only direct experience matters and how committed we are to daily practice’.

    Now, with the unshakable resolve to educate people on the truth about Tantra – about what it is and what it isn’t – and to make it more accessible and meaningful for the masses, Octavio has committed himself wholeheartedly to the lineage of Sri Vidya Tantra, the knowledge-stream of the Himalayan Masters. This sublime lineage, above all else, is dedicated to bringing forward more light, wisdom, and beauty into the world by the virtue of committed personal practice.

  • Greeting Rainbow Warriors

    How's everybody doing?? I know it’s been a while since I’ve published an episode and I am so grateful for your patience. I am coming to you today from the south of France where I’m currently just north of the magical and powerful Pyrenees and just about wrapping this round of my pilgrimage to Mary Magdalene. As I’ve dived into her teachings I’m learning that I have been teaching many of the same things, and it’s blowing my mind. I feel a strong resonance with her story and her energy. I hope you’re following my instagram account where I’ve been sharing lots on my feed and my daily stories about the journey and all the sacred sites I’ve visited. Check that out at @visionary_lifestyle_guide.

    Guys this pilgrimage to the Divine Feminine has been life-changing. I’m finally understanding why I’ve been called to Paris and the south of France for over 3 decades. I’ve discovered that Mary Magdalene spent a significant part of her life here in France, and that Paris is actually named for the Goddess Isis, and that Mary Magdalene was trained as a priestess in the temple of Isis. It’s said that beneath Notre Dame, in the very heart and center of Paris, is a temple of Isis. Check the name guys:Paris-par isis. This is why it’s so significant that Notre Dame burned recently. This event can be interpreted as a literal blowing off the roof of the patriarchy that has been dominating most religions and the world for the last 2000 years. The time of the Divine Feminine is upon us. Women are rising up like never before to claim their place in the world and deliver their gifts in service to Mother Earth and all her creatures. THIS is the shakti force that is turning the tides here on planet earth right now.

    I am writing about this a lot so you will be the first to know when my two books are ready. And stay tuned for my upcoming season on Shakti Power, with interviews with some of the most intriguing female leaders and activists of our time. The Dalai Lama has said that the western woman will save the world, and I’m bringing you some stellar examples of these women who are living their lives in service to the greater good.

    And this my beloveds, is what brings me to today's guest, as she, is one of these women.

    Amisha Ghadiali, is an award-winning social entrepreneur whose career has included demanding roles in the political, sustainability and tech start-up worlds. She has combined managing a high pressure lifestyle with her deep knowledge of sustainable living, mindfulness and yoga. Her knowledge and experience in different industries makes it easy for her to connect to your daily world and bring that extra illumination which makes it all flow.

    Her own “burn out” whilst “trying to save the world” led her into training as a yoga and meditation teacher, which in turn opened a giant rabbit hole deeper into the mystical realms. In addition to over 1000 hours of teacher training in Yoga & Meditation, she has trained as a priestess, reiki master and intuitive energy healer. She brings all this depth and her fascination with the relationship of our inner and outer worlds, to her work.

    Amisha is a writer and speaker on all aspects of conscious and green living. She edited the collaborative book, The Future Is Beautiful – A Collection from Think Act Vote, coining the term Creative Activism and bringing together ideas and artwork from over two hundred contributors to inspire a brighter future.

    She’s recently launched a membership portal called the Presence Collective and also has a podcast titled:The Future Is Beautiful . I see Amisha as an Eco Warrior and Visionary Activist. Amisha is like a rainbow, like me, with loads of interests and projects happening all at once.

    I met her at Bali Spirit Festival a couple of years ago now, and continue to watch her from afar as she makes valuable contributions to the collective. In this conversation we discuss:

    Mystical healing

    Saving the world

    Visionary Activism

    The Environment

    Eco Fashion

    And even Politics

    So make sure to check the show notes for links to all of her projects!

    And now, on with the show! Enjoy and namaste






  • Greetings Rainbow Warriors,

    I’m coming to you today from Ojai, California. Tomorrow marks the celebration of two important events that I want to make sure you’re aware of. Summer Solstice and the 4th International Day of Yoga.

    Our guest today is Soma Temple.

    A 35-year resident of the powerful and holy Island of Bali, Soma Temple is truly one of Bali’s Sacred Goddess’s.

    Both with her unbreakable faith and her determination to fill the world with love. A dedicated pioneer of the Rudraksha movement and one of the founders of the world's new appreciation for Malas. An incredible mother, friend and mentor, Soma is a warrior of the light in every sense of the words.

    Soma Temple is the Priestess of Rudraksha Beads, with a special story about how she became so. In this interview, she tells her story and she explains the purpose of malas and how to use them, as well as the significance of that sacred number 108.

    Join me in Soma’s sacred puja space in her home in Bali for an intimate discussion about these sacred subjects.

    You can find Soma’s business online at aumrudraksha.com

  • Greeting beloved rainbow warriors, earth lovers and sacred activists.I’m coming to you today from beautiful Bali. I thought this interview would be the perfect compliment to earth day week. And can we just talk about earth day for a minute? That’s EVERY DAY, right guys? But officially this is the 10th anniversary of Mother earth day, according to the UN.

    The Resolution was introduced in 2009 by Bolivia and endorsed by over 50 member states. The term Mother Earth is used because it "reflects the interdependence that exists among human beings, other living species and the planet we all inhabit" Can I get an amen!?

    So in celebration of so much of the world paying attention to this life or death reality, I thought it good to focus on Yoga for the earth today.

    If you’ve been listening to the show for any amount of time, you know that I’m passionate about the environment and yoga, so what do you expect haha.

    ‘Now before I get to todays guest, I want to share a recent itunes review with you. Gina says”Magda is fabulous. Her podcast is so comprehensive of all things yogi, visionary activism etc. She interviews some INCREDIBLE people from all over the world and I am lucky to have found her work and learn from her.If you’re looking to learn something new or enhance what you already know, definitely listen. It’s my transportation listening go-to. Thank you Gina, I’m thrilled you’re getting so much value here. And to the rest of you, please write tour itunes review so I can share that on the show, and let’s get all people listening and awakening to the power of the yogic path to create positive change here on our beloved Mother Earth.

    And one more thing my nature-loving peeps, I’m offering a yoga retreat in the south of France this August 2-9 where we’ll be doing yoga on the earth daily, among chateaus and sunflowers guys. No joke. This is the retreat of my dreams and it’s going to be a small group so if this calls you find all the info on my facebook page Visionary LIfestyle and Podcast or search the word sunflowers on my website at visionary-lifestyle.com

    Ok! On to todays show and my favorite topic…...yoga for nature!

    Philip Dickenson is an award winning producer/director who walked away from the TV industry to be an active humanitarian and environmentalist. In 2015 he created Yoga For Nature a non profit with the intention to inspire the global Yoga community to establish a new era of peace and love in the world.

    Phil is also the founder of newly launched Forest Smoothie, the world’s first Café Conservation Project.

    You’ll hear in the interview how I came across Phil's work at Bali Spirit Festival.

    In this interview, Phil shares his personal journey to becoming a true yogi, or “a yogi all the time” as he puts it. This is a heartwarming story of one man’s journey of aligning his life with his values. He’s on a mission to raise awareness about the need for social change in regards to environmental, animal and human rights. One avenue for this is Yoga for Natures attempt to turn yoga studios into hubs for social change. Phil has created an Invitation to the global yoga community to take their practice off the mat.

    Some of his merchandise includes slogans like My asana is vegan and Yoga can change the world.

    So this is an opportunity for you to get involved by suggesting the studio you practice at to dedicate a class to Yoga for Nature. Or, if you’re s studio owner, you have the power to help your clientele get more engaged in true yoga by raising awareness about these issues and taking action .

    His latest project is the forest smoothie, which plants a tree for every superfood smoothie sold. If you’re in the restaurant biz or frequenting conscious restaurants, this is an invitation for you to spread the word, make a difference and earn a bunch of good karma points while you’re at it..

    I hope this interview sparks your activist heart and inspires you to take some action on behalf of Mother earth, the animals and the humans we share her with.

    Check the show notes for links to Phils website yoga for Nature and Forest smoothie.com

    Enjoy and namaste

  • Greetings from Bali my beloved rainbow warriors!I am still in post Bali Spirit bliss and have recovered from the sleep deprivation and massive influx of love into my heart by connecting with new and old friends and soaking up loads of new wisdom and skills. It was 8 solid days and nights and wonderfully exhausting. Just wow. I’m so grateful to be tapped into this community.

    Bali Spirit fest really did not disappoint, and if fact, it seems to get better and better. There’s truly a global soul family that is converging there year after year and growing and glowing more and more. If you’re following my instagram you saw some of the highlights, and if you’re not, what are you waiting for? Find me on insta at visionary_lifestyle_guide and @visionarylifestylepodcast

    This year the theme of SHAKTI rang out loud and clear for me so you can watch for my Shakti Power Season following this one. I recorded some amazing interviews and some of them were even done live on my Visionary LIfestyle and Podcast facebook page so you can check those out right away.

    Now I am compelled to give another shout out to the angel I mentioned on the last show. I was calling him angel because the Patreon message showed me only Angelwoods, which is the name of his amazing organization he’s forming. His name I’ve since learned, is Lars. So, Dearest Lars, thank you again for your support both financially in terms of your generous donation, and also your kind words in our exchanges. Lars you really responded to my call for support for this show and it warms my heart and more importantly, inspires me to keep the shows coming. Because as much as I enjoy doing these interviews, producing the show is a ton of work for one person my lovlies, so your feedback and support is what puts the wind in my sails to keep it going.

    You can make a one time donation through paypal at paypal.me/visionarylifestyle, or sign up for recurring monthly donations as low as $1 on Patreon. Please show me I’m not in this alone my beloved community.Help me make this work sustainable so we can all keep learning from the great wisdom of the teachers I’m interviewing around the world.

    Ok so now onto todays show! Our guest today is Silvia Mordini. Silvia is a self proclaimed Yomad,Love Alchemist, and a Yogaprenuer.

    Silvia Mordini is an internationally recognized Yoga Presenter. Her passion connects people to their own joyful potential. Born in Ecuador, proud of her Italian heritage and raised as a world traveler, Silvia developed a sense of global citizenship early on. In young adulthood she was run over by a car—a life changing accident that led her to discover the “Alchemy” of Yoga to heal and transform. A serial Yogapreneur, Silvia had a 13 year Human Resource career, owned 2 Yoga Studios for 10 years with over 9,000 students, founded Alchemy Tours, a Spiritual Adventure company and developed the 13 year old international Alchemy of Yoga Teacher Training School with 23 graduating classes of Love Alchemists. She has been inspiring happiness, global awareness, and joyful living in students for over 15 years since she started teaching at 19 years old.

    I met Silvia at the Bali Spirit Festival where she blew me away with her huge open heart and talk of her yomad adventures. This woman calls herself a love alchemist, and that’s precisely what she is.

    We instantly connected in the heart space and so I thought this interview was the perfect one to publish right after the latest Bali Spirit Festival. I hope you find inspiration in her story and teachings as I do.

    Enjoy and namaste

  • Today’s guest is Ebony Smith aka The Ghetto Guru, world renowned yoga and mindfulness instructor and founder of Yoga N Da Hood (YNDH), a non profit organization dedicated to making wellness accessible to everyone. (in short they teach yoga in the hood) YNDH is one of the fastest growing non profits in Dallas, translating how wellness is implemented across cultural and social economic barriers.

    Growing up in inner city Dallas, she knew first hand what it means to be at a disadvantage. She then learned the power of thought, and that what you think will truly cultivate the life you live.

    Ebony is an inspiring example of how yoga can heal and transform your life. She went from getting fired from every job she’d ever had, an alcoholic, misfit; to traveling the world teaching yoga and mindfulness and inspiring others to be the greatest versions of themselves. From college drop out and pill popper to speaking and teaching at Harvard Medical School, Essence Festival, SXSW, Bali, Canada, Jamaica, and all over the USA. Contracted by Wanderlust, United Way Dallas, Texas Women College, Paul Quinn College, City of Dallas, DISD and other major corporation and institutions to motivate and inspire students, staff, human beings to be the greatest version of themselves.

    ​From her website Ebony says:

    I am a soul that continues to flourish through all, I am the flower in the concrete, the bloom in the dead of winter. I am truly your reflection. Changing my thoughts changed my life and continues to everyday in every moment in and out of time. It is a powerful tool for living the greatest version of your life. These tools and strategies are taught, not birth given, allow me the honor of creating a space for growth and well being for you and yours.

    I hope you enjoy this interview and getting a taste of the enthusism for yoga that turned Ebony’s life around, and continues to be the gift that keeps on giving as her business is growing quickly, meeting the needs of s sorely underserved community.

    I was honored to meet her and spend this time with her at the Bali SPirit Festival.

    Take a listen and be ready to be inspired.

    Enjoy and namaste

  • My interview with Gwyn Williams at Bali Spirit festival discussing the 3 Treasures.

    Greetings beloved rainbow warriors. I’m coming to you today from Goa india where I’ve been for a couple months now teaching and learning and teaching again. What a blessing to be here spending time in the nourishing sea

    Gwyn has been teaching his entire adult life. Earlier as a physical education teacher, martial arts instructor and later as a yoga teacher and Zenthai facilitator. His passion for alternative therapies and connecting his heart with his hands led to him teaching Zen Shiatsu at his created Mt. Ninderry Healing Centre in 1999. Since this initial class he has become a national and international teacher of his own form of bodywork/movement and awareness he calls Zenthai.

    I have to share from his website this explanation of what zenthai is to give you an understanding of who Gywn is.

    On Zenthai …

    ‘On the surface we may see a creative form of bodywork integrating techniques and philosophy from Zen Shiatsu, Thai massage and osteopathy. However, at its core is an invitation to freedom. Freedom not only of the structural and energetic bodies but also, if we are adventurous enough, also the mental and emotional. Experiencing true freedom is not about ‘taking on’ anything new but more-so about letting go of the traps and blockages within our body/mind that prevent us from experiencing our true nature – joyful and free. It becomes the focused intention for both giver and receiver using tools such as touch, breath, movement, awareness and honest self inquiry that is not confined to a yoga mat or futon but each moment of our daily life.’

    I find Gwyn to be an experienced and passionate advocate and educator for wellness in both energy and form.

    He’s a bright light himself and I’m so proud to share this uplifting AND INFORMATION PACKED EPISODE WITH YOU.

    Today Gwyn walks us through what in Chinese medicine is known as the 3 treasures. This is really useful information to grasp and find ways to integrate into your daily life for better health and vitality. Gwyn does give some practical tips for cultivating and caring for your three treasures so make sure you have a notebook.

    Check out the show notes in itunes to get links to Gwyn’s website and schedule.

    All my love,


  • Greetings Rainbow Warriors,

    I’m coming to you today from the amazing Auroville India. If you missed my last show and introduction to this brand new season, season 8 of the Visionary Lifestyle Podcast please do and get yourself up to date with where I am and the incredible experience I’m having here.

    So now This is our first show of season 8 and I couldn’t be more excited to be offering you this particular interview, as it’s been a long time coming.

    Our guest today is Insiya Rasiwala Finn.

    She is a Yoga, Ayurveda and Wellness expert who grew up in Bombay, India with Yoga and Ayurveda shaping her life. She is passionate about sharing the transformative impact of these wisdom practices with inspiration, freshness, poetry, and joy; embodying her life as a mama, yogini and community connector in our modern world.

    Insiya has crafted a life of globe-trotting en famille, with her partner Eoin Finn and their son Ananda, who she says is one of her greatest teachers, as well as living the simple, slow life when at home.

    You can Follow Insiya on her website YOGUE.ca as she continues to seek out the greenest, healthiest and beauty-full ways to live, cook, inspire, travel and play: in the ocean, with words on paper and on the yoga mat.

    She has been featured in the pages of Yoga Journal, Peppermint Magazine and has contributed as a travel wellness writer to Conde Nast Traveler, Asia Spa, and The Globe and Mail.

    I met Insiya a couple of years ago at my first Bali Spirit festival when I interviewed her husband Eoin Finn, so go back and catch his interview if you haven’t heard it yet. These two are a serious yogi power couple! Insiya and I connected about yoga, wellness, and Ayurveda, and we set a mutual intention to do this interview but we flew in different directions before we got the chance at that time, and finally came back together to do it after the next Bali Spirit Festival.

    This is actually the last interview I did in Bali, but am starting the season with it because it’s honestly the one I’m most excited about right now, especially because I am doing this deep dive on Ayurveda at the moment. My panchakarma retreat in Rishikesh, India is coming up in March, and I’m launching a video series in my facebook group later this month to talk about all this Ayurveda business too. At this point, I have integrated so much Ayurveda in my daily life and find it so incredibly useful that I feel deeply called to share this information with you.

    In this interview, Insiya walks us through so much practical information so be sure to have your notebooks out. She covers the doshas, recommended daily practices as well as which yoga poses to do for which dosha and just tons more yogic wisdom.

    She is a powerhouse of knowledge and it is my pleasure and honor to bring you this incredibly useful content.

    Follow her on Instagram, and her website to stay tuned in and keep learning from this brilliant soul.

    Check the show notes for links to where to find her, and if you’re not in my facebook community yet, go to Visionary LIfetsyle and Podcast Community on Facebook to get access to a library of informative videos about conscious eating, yoga, and meditation.

    And if you’re interested in hanging our in Rishikesh with me in March and being lovingly guided through a traditional panchakarma experience, search the word India on my website at visionary-lifetsyle.com

    And don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and follow my stories to see my behind the scenes pics of my trips around India and really all over this glorious planet.

    Thanks for being here, Please do enjoy this show and namaste

    “Life treats you the way you treat you”

  • Greetings from Bali my beloved rainbow Warriors! The monsoon season is upon us and today I saw some of the heaviest rain I’ve seen in my life, and that is saying a lot as I grew up in Hawaii :)

    And speaking of Hawaii, today’s guest and I have that in common, which makes it pretty funny that we had to go all the way to Rishikesh India to meet each other.

    Our guest today is Katie Fisher. Katie is an Artist, activist, musician, healer, a practitioner of Chinese medicine, global traveler, facilitator of sound healing.

    I met Katie at the International Yoga Festival in Rishikesh. I was immediately drawn to her sound healing classes and her set of rainbow wands, or tuning forks as they’re called actually.

    I attended some of her classes and became more an more intrigued with the techniques she was teaching, and how she was connecting the practices to yoga.

    We touch on a lot of different topics in the interview like about yoga, Marma points and Acupuncture, the chakras, the Solfeggio frequencies, Cymatics, sound healing, medicine resonance, and Vibration as a healing frequency. Katie shares some of her toys with us so listen closely and please do your best to ignore the background noise. We sat down in a quiet place or this one and soon after got flooded with some noisy neighbors, so please bear with it because later in the interview we get to some really juicy nuggets you don’t want to miss..

    Katie has a sound healing school in Hawaii called http://hawaiihealingsoundschool.org/.

    If you’ve been trying to make sense of all the talk about frequencies. Like 432Hz and the Schuman frequency in music these days, you will get some answers in this show.

    Don’t forget to check the show notes for links to Katie's website,hawaiihealingsoundschool.org, and also a great youtube video ink of another informative interview with Katie.

    And, if you haven’t jumped into my community group on facebook yet, you are invited. I’ve really activated that group and am doing daily lives sessions in there, teaching all kinds of visionary lifestyle topics, and even doing some live podcast interviews in there. That’s the Visionary Lifestyle and Podcast Community Group on facebook. Please do check it out and come say hi.


    I hope you find some inspiration and practical tips and maybe even experience some sound healing through the tones that Katie shares.

    Enjoy and namaste

  • Greetings Rainbow Warriors,

    I’m coming to you from beautiful Bali, Indonesia today. Happy Samhain, If you’re not familiar with this special day, listen up. "Samhain involves the celebration and festival of death and transformation. It occurs in late October and early November and is most popularly known as Halloween, All Hallows Eve, All Saints & All Souls including Day of the Dead. This is also a celebration for the new year in other practices of the world. Like many cultures celebrating the New Year is a time for letting go of the old and looking ahead to the new. It marks the end of the harvest season. "

    It is also said that the veil is thinner at this time, giving us access to our dearly departed loved ones. So beloveds, if it resonates with you, light a candle tonight and invite a connection with someone you loved who passed on to the other side.

    And one more quick announcement, I have just a couple of spots left for the 30 day Visionary Activation Challenge that I announced all over my social media this week. I am calling in a couple women, I think I have two spots left, who are motivated to activate their highest potential, to work directly with me over the course of 30 days. I’m offering this program at a ridiculously low introductory price just through the end of the year. Schedule a quick call with me to learn more, by going to the services tab on my website. That’s at visionary-lifestyle.com or, check the show notes for a link directly to all the info about the program. https://bit.ly/2OhjNIi

    It’s basically like having me to yourself for a month so I can share all my activation secrets from my toolkit with you, through a custom-tailored plan that will support your unique needs, challenges and goals. This is a one time offer so if that is resonating, get a message to me or get a call scheduled with me right away.

    Now on to today’s show.

    Krishnamurthy Mohan Raj is a yoga instructor and the Founder and Director of Namaste Mysore Yoga Culture Communication Center in (China). He is influenced by traditional yoga culture in his teaching style, focusing on the detailed journey of yoga culture and vinyasa.

    Krishnamurthy Mohan Raj started practicing yoga at an early age under the guidance of his mother and brother. His practice moved into its next, deeper level when he started teaching yoga at the age of 14 in his birth place of Mysore. In 2005 got the opportunity to promote yoga in China, and off he went and has been there ever since. He is now based in China, focusing on his workshops and the promotion of yoga culture, encouraging his students to not only practice yoga, but to feel the magic of yoga.

    I met him at the International Yoga Festival in 2017, and finally, we got to sit down and have this chat a full year later again at the International Yoga Festival. We enjoyed a great conversation about many so aspects of yoga. I think you’ll really find some inspiration in this one, guys. Krishnamurthy has a really interesting story and a real passion for true yoga.

    Make sure to check the show notes on visionary-lifestyle.com for links to his website.


  • Greetings Rainbow Warriors,
    I’m coming to you today from Bali, Indonesia. It’s amazing to be here eating the nourishing tropical fruits, watching sunsets on the beach, and connecting with so many activated rainbow warriors here.
    Bali really is one of those activated places on the planet, no question. Some say it’s the best place in the world to do healing work, and I believe that. Everything about being here feels nourishing to me.
    If you haven’t listened to my episodes recorded here at the Bai SPirit Festival, go back and listen to those shows. They’ll give you a real taste of what it’s like to be on the ground here.
    And coming up after this season from India will be another season of the Bali Spirit Festival, so stay tuned for that.
    In fact, the last time I saw our guest, was exactly there, even though I met her in Rishikesh India.
    Our guest today is Pravbavati Dwabha. Dwabha, as she’s called, is an icon of the Rishikesh community. I used to see her around and wonder who she was. She definitely makes an impression. Before we met, each time I saw her I noticed that she seemed to be well known and respected, and as it turned out, she is the force behind this amazing charity I kept hearing about, know as Ramana's Garden.
    Dwabha has an amazing story and is the embodiment of a karma yogi, living her purpose, taking action to help others. And not just any others, but the poorest of the poor children. Each child that comes through the gate there, arrives because they would be at risk of either being murdered, forced into prostitution, child labor, begging, starvation or total neglect
    Dwabha is an inspiration to many, and I have no question, has not only dramatically improved, but also saved the lives of many many children.
    What she has created with her organic farms, cafe and school, is a testament to her huge compassionate heart, and provides a template, for the difference one person can make, when they follow their inspiration and put it into ACTION.
    Karma yoga is the yoga of selfless action, actions associated with being of benefit to others. This is SEVA, the act of being in service. If this is a novel concept to you, please go back and listen to the first episode of this podcast, where I guide you through the 7 steps of activating your highest potential, because seva, is one of them.
    As yogis, and as humans on this earth, it is our responsibility to take of ourselves, so we can take care of each other, to make ourselves healthy so that we can be a beneficial presence on the planet. And our guest is a wonderful role model for this. As I see it, she is fully in her dharma, her purpose, and her actions, are an inspiration. She is a busy woman and I was lucky to get her alone to ask her how it all began and where it’s going in the future.
    Please do check out the website, and lend your support to this very worthy project. And if you find yourself in Rishikesh, don’t miss the chance to go visit Ramana’s garden. Your heart will be blown wide open, I promise.
    And watch my instagram feeds for some pics of Ramana’s garden, taken the same day as we did this interview.

  • Greetings Rainbow Warriors,

    I’m coming to you today from Bali, Indonesia.

    Did you catch my facebook live today making kitchari here?

    You can find it on my Visionary Lifestyle and Podcast page so go and check it out. Most of the essential ingredients are not available here in Bali so we had to make do with what we had but man oh man did it turn out great anyway. So delicious and easy to make! I’m doing a 3 day kitchari cleanse at the moment here where that’s the only thing I’ll eat for a few days and give my digestion a rest so my body can do some cleansing. It’s really the most delicious way to cleanse. Om yum!

    Check my FB live and my Visionary Lifestyle Guide instagram story for more on that. Great timing for that one too since today’s topic is all about the Ayurvedic cleanse known as panchakarma, and kitchari is the food of choice during that journey of self-love.

    Today’s interview is with Dr. Maurya, my personal Ayurvedacharya in India.

    This is Dr. Maury’s second time on the show, so if you’re new to Ayurveda or didn’t hear his first episode on the show last year, make sure to go back and listen to that to get a basic understanding of what Ayurveda is. Check the show notes for a link to that show. Season 2 Ayurveda

    Dr.Maurya is an Ayurveda Doctor, also known as an Ayurvedacharya, he’s a specialist in detox and rejuvenation, also known as Panchakarma , and has degrees in Holistic Health, Yoga & Naturopathy.

    In 2005, he established an Ayurveda Panchakarma center at the Parmarth Niketan Ashram, in Rishikesh, India. There, he’s managing and providing all Ayurvedic treatments, Naturopathy treatments and Consultations. He travels extensively delivering lectures on Ayurveda, and leads training in Ayurveda, naturopathy and panchakarma at his center in Rishikesh.

    So check it out guys, This interview was done just after I completed my last 8 days of Panchakarma with him in Rishikesh last Spring. I’ve made a commitment to myself to make this an annual event on my birthday as a way to honor my body temple.

    Next spring I’ll be bringing a group with me to Rishikesh to experience this with me. We’ll do 10 days of panchakarma , practice yoga and meditation, eat healing food, visit spiritual masters for spiritual talks known as satsangs and soak in the ancient magic that is India. Oh my gosh I can not wait!

    If this calls you shoot me and email right away and let me know so I can hold a spot for you. It will be a very intimate group so don’t delay.

    My email is [email protected]

    Ok so now without further adieu let’s get on with this show.
