Episode Description

Your yoga practice and teachings have led you to All That Is. You are inspired to give, to be of service. So much excitement, so much desire. You stand at the threshold, poised to give financially, and then your core beliefs of lack, limitation, guilt, powerlessness, unworthiness, abandonment and fear of death itself rise to the surface. “If I give, I won’t have.” Yet it is our giving that opens up our true recognition that we already have everything. The Universe doesn’t withhold. It doesn’t give to get, or keep score, or hold resentments or wait until it sees what it gets from you. It is an Ever Present, Ever Trusting, Infinite Flow. And so are you. Join us as we discuss with Paula, the notion of giving back, known as Seva, or service, and how the ancient practice of tithing relates to you right now. We will unpack various ways to be in service, while recognizing the divinity, abundance and prosperity that is ever-present, supportive and nurturing to our lives in every way.

East Forest

East Forest weaves ethereal soundscapes from his vintage keys, intimate vocals, and original field recordings. His sonic architecture reflects motifs of nature and the inner spiritual landscape juxtaposed with the realities and possibilities of modern society. The emotive music experiments with elements of pop and contemporary themes while leading the listener on a sensual ambient journey. The wide ranging textural sound has been called “blissful” (NPR) and likened to a cross between Sigur-Ros, The Album Leaf, and Bon Iver. He has collaborated with Deepak Chopra, shared stages with artists ranging from Moby, Sarah Neufeld, to Random Rab, and composed and licensed music for apps, video games, tv/film, theatre, and dance companies. East forest has created a new type of aural experience using music as a “technology” that can intentionally facilitate a heightened odyssey of body, mind, and spirit. View Guest page
