South African Karma Yoga Teacher Leads Humanitarian Communications Team to India

Posted by:

It is with a deep sense of sorrow that I feel the imbalance of Rishikesh, and my role as Karma Yogi is apt for the impression I hope to make within the yoga community. My opinion in these matters are messages I am being guided to share at this time with the utmost sincerity. I am only sharing these messages with you as they are being revealed to me through my own experiences and realizations in Divine timing.

More than 90 ...

Love makes the world go round

Posted by:

I’ve retreated to my Goan hut house for the day. It’s much too hot outside. The persistent shrieks of the crows continue to add depth to my choice of Moby’s music, which I’m hoping will help to rest my spirit.
Today I feel like I’ve lost something. It doesn’t matter what it is…some things you just cannot explain. But it is lost and my heart feels it…a shifting Universe, change…catastrophic transformation.

I’ve had to bring all my ...

One good day – Rishikesh 2016 (diary insert) 

Posted by:

This seems like as good a day as any to begin to tell a story, one with no beginning or end…for as long as I am alive it will never be finished and when I do pass there will be no one to complete it…or perhaps my travels in India will take me so far into a forgotten place that I’ll just go missing for a while…in India, anything is possible!

It was symbolic to find out after I had booked ...

Rishikesh Uncovered – Part II: ‘Synthetic Cow’

Posted by:

Inspired by a series of interviews with well-known Master Yogi Rajeev Maken

INTRODUCTION

There are times when I have to bow my head in shame at the mess we’ve created on this beautiful planet. It seems my choice in which documentaries I have watched recently has had a huge impact on my awareness. Being a consumer and understanding what the word consumption means are two totally different things. As a yoga teacher I feel it is my duty to spread this knowledge to ...

Rishikesh Uncovered – Part I: ‘God’s Hour’

Posted by:

I am blessed to have had the opportunity to travel to India thrice over the past three years. It was part of the daily ritual whilst at the ashram to wake up at 4.30/5.00 to prepare for practise, ‘God’s Hour’ or in Hinduism, Brahma muhurta (time of Brahma/God). The period (muhurta) one and a half hours before sunrise or more precisely 1 hour 36 minutes before sunrise. It is traditionally the last phase or muhurta of the night and is ...

“HOPE” – my word for 2016

Posted by:

Cape Town to Mumbai…lost between two countries…

From the beginning India was explosive. Every experience in India from my first visit in 2013 has tested and pulled at logic and heart strings. Now, after our third trip in two years which was an extended 5 months we have been back in Cape Town for four and looking in bewilderment at how quickly time has passed.

Goa – Dreamt and Discovered

Posted by:

I’m really going to miss my first ‘Goan home’. A canopy of palms line the front porch, our sanctuary from the heat, with its cooling glassy tiled floor. Wrought iron and gold balustrades accessorize the yellow toned structural features of our villa. A short 50 metre stroll to the thriving main street which hugs the erratic coastline and we were in ‘the vibe’.

Unpredictably it was the brand new LG Direct Drive washing machine which seemed to outweigh having no connectivity ...

A disappearing trick – 11 days to go

Posted by:

As I sit contemplating how it got to be 11 days left to go I find myself pondering on the words, home is where the heart is. In this case my home is not where my heart is because it feels like it’s spreading out over many different places. My things, my four cats (all finally and thankfully homed), even my daughter’s trip back from Goa alone will see my heart spreading wider and further. Feeling lost is an understatement ...

The Force Behind Us – 31 days to go

Posted by:

Whichever power and force is behind the remarkable events Anton and I have experienced individually and together since last year November we feel completely safe in our decision and have weighed the process against all the other opportunities here in South Africa.

Pamela and Anton

I see many thoughts and ideas over time that have shaped us and created a society where our children should feel free enough to dream of limitless opportunities, to be ...
