Honoring a Legend

Dear Friends,

I am back from a weekend of Wanderlust Austin for the great gathering of music, yoga and community starting with Become the Sun meditation for Yoga Energy Activism and then Global Yoga Trance Dance with DJ Drez. We dedicated our dance in memory of beloved DJ Cheb I Sabbah - a pioneer, legend and genius musical alchemist for the yoga and world music community. Now he is One with the cosmos - we love YOUR GREAT SOUL CHEBJI.

Let us continue to gather and celebrate life as we have it. In this season of letting go, let us allow the Great Souls to remind us to love and put to the front burner what is most important.

Please save the date for our full moon-winter solstice Tending the Heart Fire Holiday Book Release Party and Soul Kirtan with C.C White on Dec. 15th (more info coming soon)!

TEDxMalibu Sunday December 8th


Shiva was invited to give a TEDx talk on the Energetic Heart
for the TEDxMalibu conference on DESIRE

Thomas Hobbes asserted that human desire is the fundamental motivation of all action. Desire is so much more than titillation and proclivities; it is the hope and assertion for something more. By exploring desire we gain a better understanding of humanity.

This will be the 3rd year of TEDxMalibu, looking forward to a varied, juicy and rich exploration of “DESIRE.”
