For The Joy Of Gratitude


Happy Early Summer.  Life is amazing isn’t it? Every moment bringing us something new to experience and to enjoy.  This spring has been a spring of great transition, transformation and growth. It feels as if everything that was ready to move has been swept away on the channels of change, and that the next layer of “being” has fully integrated and arrived.  It feels good. I am grounded, awake, grateful, aligned and connected with my heart centre. It feels at least for the moment, that it is a space to just relax, allow and to receive the gifts of the spirit and the universe.

How are you?

Dhanyavad (For The Joy Of Gratitude)

In the spirit of an open heart I felt inspired to share with you a beautiful and gentle mantra that every time I listen, my heart opens. It’s simple, beautiful and divine.  The definition of dhanyavad is gratitude and ananda is the joy and bliss of the highest state of consciousness, the essence of who we are.



Sitali Breath

I also felt inspired to share one of my favourite summer time breathing practices. It is a simple and powerful way to shift not only our body temperature, but bring balance to our emotions and energy bodies.

This breath was “discovered” by the ancient Indian Sages as they observed the elements of nature, (the curling of a leaf in the sweet dew, the gentle in-breath of a cobra), and imitated it, unlocking the power of this technique. Sitali breath can be done anytime, not just in yoga or before meditation, and is especially good on those days that we are feeling overwhelmed, overheated and sticky with sweat.

Sitali Pranayama cools the body, invites moisture into the being and soothes any excess heat or inflammation in the body. It also brings relaxation, nourishes the nervous system, and reduces excess fatigue.


  • Sit comfortably in a chair, or cross legged. It’s extra nourishing if you can be outside in nature in a shady space. Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and settle in.
  • Curl your tongue lengthwise and allow it to stick out of your mouth a little (¾ inch). If your tongue doesn’t curl, just allow the tip of it to rest gently at the top of the mouth behind the teeth.
  • Inhale deeply, yet slowly across your tongue and into your mouth, as if you were sipping through a straw.
  • Exhale through the nostrils, as you close your mouth.
  • Repeat

Continue for up to 5 minutes on a hot summer day then allow yourself to let go and rest- Notice the difference in your body temperature and in your mind. You might notice that you feel much cooler, and also that there is a spacious ness and a sweetness to your emotions and thoughts. This pranayama practice is wonderful to do in the heat of summer, creating balance in body, mind and spirit.

Here is a video of the Sitali Breath to help you learn it 🙂 Enjoy

Albert Einstein had quoted “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it”. If we could expand our level of consciousness and operate from our hearts, we will be able to connect to the inherent wisdom of nature and our inner being, allowing it to support and guide us.

In this workshop, Asrael and Nisha will introduce you to Heart-Based Meditation and share a powerful attunement, opening you to its simple yet grounded gifts. In this transformative practice, you will learn that meditation can be truly effortless. That there is nothing to try for, nothing to force or achieve, and no experience you’re “supposed to have.” Instead, through meditation you can shift into deeper states of consciousness, relaxation and inner knowing.

One of the greatest gifts that we can give to ourselves is a regular meditation practice. Taking a short time each day to let go and to tune in, creates space for us to awaken and shine. A regular meditation practice is also deeply nourishing for our nervous system, our brain, our emotional health, and our stress levels. Hence, as you meditate every day you will elevate your consciousness and intuition.

Heart-based Meditation is a simple technique that allows you to return to your natural state of peace with ease, while offering countless benefits that are deeply transformational and life-changing, including:

– Reduction of stress and anxiety
– More restful sleep
– Improved mental clarity and decision making
– More harmonious relationships and better conflict resolution
– Natural healing – creating health from the inside out – through the power of Consciousness
– Cravings shift toward those that serve, not hinder, overall wellness
– Experience more joy and love in your life
– Synchronicities and the effortless fulfillment of desires
– Shifting and release of old programs, patterns, and behaviours that keep you stuck
– Less reactivity to outside triggers
– More emotional stability

When you learn Heart-Based Meditation, you will learn how to let go and to allow the natural process of clearing and releasing to take place, while making friends with any thoughts that may arise. At the same time, you naturally and organically create a resonance and connection with the heart centre.

All are welcome (no meditation or yoga experience necessary).

Thank you all so much for your presence in my life and this world.

I am grateful to you all.

In light and love
