Namaste Rainbow Warriors!

 

I’m dropping you a quick line to let you know that I’m not going to be able to publish shows for the next couple of weeks.

I’m currently in Barcelona ,Spain, and going to an event in the desert where I won’t have access to the internet to get the shows out to you.

There are two more episodes coming up from my second season, which was all recorded in India. I was hoping to get those all out before the break, and even start publishing two shows a week, but guys these shows are taking me 10-20 hours of work per episode, and while working and traveling and without any help on post-production, I just can’t keep up as much as I’d like to.

I have more than 50 recorded episodes in the pipeline for you. They’re all with the most amazing people in Bali, Thailand, California, and New York  and can’t wait for you to hear all these amazing conversations!

If you’re finding value here, I humbly ask for your support. If I can get a few more patrons on my patreon page, I can hire some help and get these out to you sooner!

Please visit that page at patreon.com/visionarylifestyle , where you can make a small recurring donation. Or, if it suits you better, there’s a paypal link on my website for one time donations. That’s at visionary-lifestyle.com/podcast

Your support means the world to me, and let’s me know that I’m not putting in all this effort in vain and of course helps me cover the out of pocket costs for producing the show, and get the episodes out to you in a more timely manner.

 

If you can’t make a financial donation, writing a review in itunes, and sharing the show on social media and with your family and friends, are other ways to share the Visionary LIfestyle Love.

I’m so grateful you’re here, and listening, and hopefully finding value that is helping to activate YOUR highest potential.

Our guest today is Satya Kalra.

If you listened to my very first episode of this show:The 7 Steps to Activating Your Highest Potential ( http://visionarylifestylepodcast.libsyn.com/rss ), you’ll know that the chakras are considered one of my 7 steps, so the purpose of this interview is to take a deep dive on that subject.
Satya Kalra is a self-transformation, empowerment, and happiness coach, spiritual guide, international speaker, and bestselling author. She is also a founder and president of the non-profit organization Path to Anandam to help people to explore their eternal happiness and peace within.
She was a veteran in the biotech industry for 35 years serving as a visionary, entrepreneur, scientist, founder, CEO, president and chairperson. Following a divine call, Satya left the helm as a CEO in the biotech industry (cancer arena) and founded Path to Anandam . Her personal mission is to live in love, peace, and Anandam, and to propagate blissful living by helping others become more self-dependent and self-reliant, especially destitute women and children.
For more than 20 years, Satya has been practicing and promoting awareness of blissful living through applications of timeless wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita and spirituality in daily life. She creates a bridge between science and spirituality, and brings awareness to spirituality through ancient wisdom from India with a modern practical approach.
The focus of Satya’s teachings is how to be happy, heal yourself, enhance the quality of life, experience blissfulness/Anandam and reach your unlimited potential by raising your conscious level through self-developed 7-Steps. These easy, simple and effective techniques (Anandam meditation and spiritual practices) for the body, mind and spirit have benefited 1000s of people.
I met Satya at The International Yoga festival in Rishikesh, India. I attended her Chakras workshop and invited her to the show to share her vast wisdom on the subject she’s been teaching for over 20 years.

Enjoy

Our guest today is a traveling monk known as Swami Paramadvaiti. He belongs to a monastic order from India, called the Vaisnava tradition, more commonly known as the Hare Krishna Movement. He began monastic life when he was initiated at the age of 18 by renowned spiritual master of the Gaudiya Vaishnava tradition, Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (the founder preceptor of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, commonly known as the "Hare Krishna Movement".)  

Seven years later he accepted the vows of a traveling monk . He now travels the world staying in one place usually not longer than 3 days.

For more than forty years he has devoted himself to cover the world over, speaking about Vedic culture and its practical solutions to modern problems. In 1984 he established his own spiritual mission called VRINDA, the Vrindavan Institute for Vaishnava Culture and Studies, with the aim of spreading the cultural heritage of the Vedas around the world. In the same way, he has established more than thirty-five Eco Yoga Villages in South America and Europe, creating true Vedic spiritual oasis where people from different countries can have a profound approach to this sacred philosophy.

He calls himself a torch carrier for Pachamama, which is the word for earth in South America.

 

In this interview we speak of many things including a solution to the environmental crisis,

The United Nations of Spirit: which is Weaving a Tapestry of Consciousness and Love, and he gives us his perspective on the  fact that despite cows being regarded as Divine in India, India remains the world’s largest exporter of beef.

 

We recorded this interview at the International Yoga Festival , sitting right next to the food tent, and unfortunately we incurred some noise from the clean up after lunch, but the Swami made a great joke just before I welcomed him to the show, that was right on point and brilliantly reframed my frustration with the noise, so I left it in for your enjoyment.

 

This man has a huge heart that you can see and hear from a mile away. He offers lots of wisdom for living a life of peace and harmony with the earth and all the sentient beings we share it with.

I hope you glean some nuggets of inspiration from listening to this wise soul, and I hope you’ll too be inspired to become a torch carrier for Pachamama.

Our guest today is Dr. Andrea Paige.

Andrea is a naturopathic doctor, an iridologist, a colon hydrotherapist and a yoga teacher trainer. She is also dedicated to a life of cellular cleansing. Andrea is the former Director of the Detox program at Yoga Barn , the largest yoga studio in Asia and she uses nutritional therapy, colon cleansing and fasting as profound gateways to deeper healing.

Andrea studied Evolutionary anthropology and holds a Masters of Science in Ethnobotany, a Doctorate in Naturopathy, and a Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition with T. Colin Campbell at Cornell University. Andrea has a long list of certificates and trainings in her bio on her website so check that out to get the full scope of all the wisdom she’s carrying. It is vast!

Andrea brings people to their own inner sense of aliveness through health, awakening, a sense of vitality, and consciousness. She is also here to raise the bar of what we consider in health to be the “norm”.

“I want to bring people back to the guru inside”, she says. In her own words, she’s here to empower people to take their health back into their own hands and learn to live with maximum vitality, and to re-connect into our own inherent power, our birthright, either on the Yoga mat or through fasting/wellness programs.

She leads retreats worldwide and teaches 200 and 500 hour Yoga Teacher Trainings as well as giving frequent public lectures and workshops.

I interviewed Andrea at The International Yoga Festival in India where she was one of the speakers. We connected immediately , and she was my sole witness and lovingly held space for me for a hugely transformative moment during my trip to India, my dip in the River Ganga. I’ll never forget that moment really and it was really special to have her there holding space for me.

In the interview Andrea goes deep on a lot of fascinating topics. She explains the power of Fasting, a Juice Fast vs Juice Feast , and her surprising take on what it was like living in Bali, where she ran the detox program at The Yoga Barn. She explains why not milk, shares her take on gluten, and is passionate about empowering people to listen to the the Guru Inside.

You can hear lots of India in the background on this interview, and listening to it, it takes me back.

Yogis and monkeys and Ganga oh my….

 

Andrea walks her talk and just one look at her makes you want to listen to anything she has to share. She is the poster child for vitality people. We had an absolute blast recording this interview and I hope you’ll be laughing right along with us!

Make sure to check out the show notes at visionary-lifestyle.com/podcast to find links to tools she mentions in the interview , and go to her website to learn more about her and her offerings, and to take advantage of some of the great freebies she has there, lots of useful info there for you my Rainbow Warriors!.

 

Enjoy:)

Our guest today is Yogrishi Vishvketu Aka Vishva-ji for short.

A learned teacher and yogi, Vishva-ji has studied and practiced Yoga and the Vedic healing arts in the Himalayas since childhood. He facilitates trainings and workshops internationally incorporating diverse aspects of Yoga practice into his classes:asana,pranayama, meditation, cleansing kriyas, Ayurveda and Vedic chanting. He calls this holistic style of teaching Akhanda Yoga. He also holds an M.A. and Ph.D. in Yoga Philosophy from the holy city of Haridwar. He is founder of the Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram Trust in Rishikesh, India where he offers his teachings and trainings.

With his fun-loving nature, Vishva-ji inspires students and teachers from around the world to live the yogic life with joy and dedication. He teaches from the heart and leads students to connect more deeply to themselves.

 

He is also author of Yogasana: The Encyclopedia of Yoga Poses, published by Mandala. It’s a really stunning and useful accomplishment and contribution to the yoga world.

 

I loved talking to this visionary teacher! He had me at namaste in his first class.This man is sunshine personified! I interviewed him in the garden at Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh India, after attending his classes at the International Yoga Festival . In this interview we discuss why yoga starts in the kitchen, and the difference between happy food and grumpy food, and then he goes into detail about the 5 koshas , also called sheaths, or subtle bodies. Really fascinating stuff here, guys. I provided a graphic in the show notes to help you understand this vast concept a bit better.

I really want to visit his school and am called to deepen my knowledge and experience of yoga through his teachings. Who knows, maybe I’ll see YOU there!

Check out the show notes for links to Yogrishi’s website and social media channels. His website is full of video classes including some about the koshas, or sheaths, that we discuss in the interview, and he even has recipe videos there. There’s lots of inspirational resources for you there so make sure you check out the links!

 

 

"You are blissful, joyful, playful and fearless "

 

“Yoga Starts in the Kitchen”

 

Anando Ham also Ananda Hum (I am Bliss)

This mantra awakens the state of fulfillment that is your true self. Ananda is the inherent bliss, joy, and fulfillment of existence. Ananda Hum aligns your Being with this reality.
