Yoga has worked on the barter system since the beginning. “I’ll trade my service for your wisdom.” I’ve been part of workstudy programs since I started training as a teacher and a practitioner. As a former yoga studio owner we had a dynamic workstudy program and even a live-in intern role.  In this show I talk with Rachel Peters  who is the Team Leader of the Yogahealer + Yoga Health Coaching workstudy program, which we call Paths to Leadership. Find out how Rachel stepped into workstudy with me and took over...

Three of my favorite words are Connectivity, Productivity + Dharma. Without connectivity productivity is futile. It comes at the expense at that which enables it. Without dharma, connectivity goes a little flat. I am one lucky gal because I get to ask my much more esteemed colleagues about what I think about. One such colleague is Dr. Claudia Welch. You’ve heard her on the she many times to save women from a life devoid of ritual, rhythm and a little ruckus. I rap with Dr. Claudia Welch about Connectivity, Productivity + Dharma ...

Acharya Shunya was born into an Ayurvedic lineage. Her guru was her grandpa. Her life was Ayurveda from the beginning. Today we talk about her new book- Ayurveda Lifestyle Wisdom. My daughter’s education outside the home has little to do with deep wisdom. It has more to do with practical life skills. She goes to school for math, language training, socialization, a little art. After school she learns gymnastics. I’m sure there is implicit wisdom in her day to day learnings. But explicit wisdom? Wisdom for the raw sake of wisdom? She...

Barbara Stanny wrote Secrets of Six Figure Women in 2004. It took me a few years to hear about it. When I read it - I was probably earning around $60k a year. Not bad. Roughly 2x the median (women earn about $31k). I was getting interested in my power. I was getting interested in my potential. When I read this now relic of a book a few bulbs went off. All of the sudden six figures went from being way out in left field to the center of home plate....

One day a podcast guest form from Maya Tiwari appeared in my inbox. On cue, I jumped up and threw a happy dance, which for me has a lot of butt and wild arms. I'd tried to get Maya Tiwari in the Ayurveda Summit a half a year before, but a death in India kept her away. At long last, we sat down for a conversation. I had no idea what to expect. On the call we connected deeply and quickly - a sign of a true guru. After 30 minutes...

"If we protect the dharma, the dharma protects us…."  Or so the conversation begins with Acharya Shunya. I count myself on the list of lucky mortals to have befriended this living guru. Our conversations are simultaneously easy and profound. I must say its a trippy experience. We've only spoken 3 times ever. This was the third. For those new to Acharya Shunya she is the spiritual director at vedikaglobal.org. She has created a true gurukulam in Berkeley, CA.  Our conversation takes place hot off the heels of her meeting with India's Prime Minster...
