Hosted by Alison J. Kay, PhD Holistic Life Coach, Energy Healer, India Trained YA RYT-200 Yoga Teacher, Certified Personal Trainer
Of the 8 limbs of yoga the physical postures are only 1; 5 address working with the mind; the intricacies of disciplining it & then the fruits afterwards. Service, known as the branch of yoga called, "karma yoga," is considered both an influence in creating, and an outcome of, a calm mind, body & spirit. "Love & Serve" is the motto of Amma, who my guest today, Vandana Dillon, is here to talk about Amma and her work w/Amma. Aka "The Hugging Saint," Amma is a Hindu spiritual leader & guru, revered as a saint by her followers, and widely respected for her humanitarian activities, who Deepak Chopra says, 'is the embodiment of pure love. Her presence heals," hence people lining up for hours to receive Amma's hug. Vandana works directly w/Amma's Embracing The World Organization, an International network of charitable organizations active in 40+ Countries & an NGO w/Special Consultative Status to the United Nations, and is currently fundraising for an Atlanta center - ashram - for Amma.

There is so much potential for us to be and have way more than the average person is aware. Even if you've been working within the metaphysical world, there's still so much clearing of old beliefs needed. Once we get beyond all that, beyond the old and the everyday mind, and we've learned the tools to deal with our minds and beliefs and make our minds our ally, there is a whole other world that opens up to us, a world working with consciousness, or vital life force energy, that's within us and all around us!
The new sciences have proven this existence of the greater field of consciousness that matches what Alison found in her 10 years in Asia that the ancient cultures observed about the nature of life. Join her and leading pioneers in a cross section of fields as they present the tools, healings and clearings to help you see what else is possible!
These are the keys for our mind-body-spirit systems to thrive, way beyond what our current system leads us to believe!
