The Healing Circle is a group session during which the power of energy is magnified by combining the participants’ energy with universal unconditional love of several practitioners in the circle. The circle is focused on healing a client by offering several different pathways on how the client can overcome physiological, psychological and spiritual challenges in their life. (more…)

Why do we really fall ill? Is diet, exercise and maintaining a healthy lifestyle sufficient for protecting ourself from illnesses or life threatening diseases? Ever wondered if there are factors beyond these that might be affecting your health and well being. I have seen friends and family members who have blamed themselves for their illnesses. And this blame does not help in the recovery process. Though diet and lifestyle is a major factor attributing to good health but let us not limit ourselves to this notion. I am sure you’ve heard of people who are very fit and eat healthy, die of chronic health issues as early as in their 40s or 30s. Why does that happen ? Have you ever wondered? I have… (more…)

“ Everyone is pregnant with death. Everyone needs it. Near death we all have the same chance. We all have the chance to become our total selves.” (Duff, 1993) But why wait till the last days of our life to become our true self. As I lay in my deathbed, I would not want to reflect on a life not well lived with a disconnected inner self. Therefore successful aging for me would involve the psychological side of aging, including self-concept, social relationships and cognitive processes. (Moody, 2010)I would like to have lived a conscious full life that consists of: positive relationships with other people, autonomy and  self-determination; mastery of surrounding environment; belief that gives purpose to life; and a sense of personal growth and development over the life course. (Ruff, 1989 as sited in Moody, 2010) (more…)

Marilyn Ferguson once beautifully said, “Over the years your bodies become walking autobiographies, telling friends and strangers alike of the minor and major stresses of your lives.” Our souls are much older than our bodies and with several reincarnations; our soul has accumulated positive as well as negative experiences, according to the Karmic Law of Cause and Effect. All souls have experienced pollution, deformation, fragmentation and injury through individual as well as collective Karma. (The Soul, 2010) (more…)

How many different diet plans have you heard of or read in the past where you’ve been asked to eliminate carbohydrates from your diet? I am sure plenty. Right? And, when you did eliminate it, what did you experience? The loss of energy and general lethargy accompanied with several other health issues. Just because I said ‘ Love your carbs’, does not mean you can now go binge on that pizza for dinner tonight!

Have you ever wondered how you will like to age and have you ever imagined or even remotely thought about how you would like to die? I know these are not easy questions to answer but nevertheless are thought provoking because one day we will all be old and will be nearing death. When I look at my parents, I wonder what they think about their aging process and what lessons I can learn from them. Especially at a time when cosmetic surgery, botox and winkle reducing creams and the like seem to be the norm, these question become even more important. (more…)

I find the similarities between Native Indigenous Medicine and Yoga Philosophy/Hindu Religion fascinating. I see synergies between the traditional yoga practiced by saints and gurus who denounced everything material to be closer to the ‘Brahman’ and the Indian/Hindu rituals practiced for several centuries, with the practices of the ‘Medicine Man’.  A decade ago, I began asking questions like who am I, why am I here and what my purpose in life is. Several Native Healers also questioned about their life’s purpose and asked similar soul-searching questions to realize their goal in life – to become a ‘Medicine Man’.  I however do not aim to be a native healer but can see myself working along with native healers to provide alternative healing solutions to my future clients.

Every time you pick a magazine, a book, an article on nutrition, it leaves you more confused on what should one should really eat! Every day there is a new scientific research and study about food and some have contradictory conclusions to each other!  I like to give away the conclusion of this blog though and make it simpler for you all -Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. That, my friends more or less, is the short answer to the supposedly incredibly complicated and confusing question of what we humans should eat in order to be maximally healthy. But then, this is just your first step towards eating healthy and there several other components that come under play… (more…)
