Best-selling author and Ayurvedic nutritionist, Sahara Rose, loved the wisdom of the Ayurvedic diet for its intuitive and customizable nature, but longed to make it more alkaline, plant-based, and low-glycemic. Today, she tells us about her journey reviving this ancient science for a modern, alkaline kitchen. Since the Doshas so often steal the show in any conversation about Ayurveda, I ask Sahara to educate us about the Six Tastes of Ayurveda instead. We demystify terms like “Pungent” and “Astringent” and learn how you can cook one Ayurvedic meal that will feed your whole family, even if everyone has a different predominate Dosha! Listen to learn more.

Sahara Rose is the best-selling author of the Idiot's Guide to Ayurveda, which is the #1 best-selling Ayurveda book globally and the upcoming Eat Feel Fresh: A Plant-Based Ayurvedic Cookbook. She has been called “a leading voice for the millennial generation into the new paradigm shift” by Deepak Chopra, who wrote the foreword of both her titles.

Loneliness is the modern disease of the technology world. Despite what we showcase on social media, we all experience loss, loneliness, and grief. We often don’t know how to channel these emotions or where to look to for support.

Learn what grief and loneliness is according to the science of Ayurveda – and how to rebalance your energy. Akshata also tells us her personal story. We learn the variety of emotions (and familial conflict) she went through after losing both of her parents in the span of 18 months. She shares with us how she felt orphaned and victimized, before transforming her suffering into a deep spiritual connection that helped her find her dharma. Listen to learn more.

Do you dread being approached by network marketers? Or perhaps you’ve considered joining a MLM to help support your wellness business with essential oils or supplements? Regardless of what camp you’re in, you’re going to want to listen to this episode with mom, yogini and network marketer, Bec Hilton. We dissect why network marketing makes so many people feel icky. We talk about the perceptions, judgments and opportunities in this industry. We also answer the biggest question – what are the pros and cons of joining an MLM as a yogi, massage therapist or healer? How do we interweave yoga, business and spirituality? Listen to find out more. 

---

Bec Hilton aka "Diverging Yogi" moves around the globe frequently with two young sons and an amazing Hubby. Yoga has long been Bec's “go-to” in forming connections with people, cultures and places as she journeys to locations near and far. Bec Hilton brands herself as the Diverging Yogi as she applies the "teachings of yoga*" off the sticky-mat and into her Skincare Business and utilizes the freedom (time, and money) it provides to focus her energy on Karma Yoga! Bec's passion project is teaching yoga at a RefugeeCentre for Women, actually unrecognized Refugees (Refugees in Malaysia have no legal status). She describes it as soul rewarding and attributes the freedom to be able to offer Karma Yoga to her Personal Development disguised as her Skincare Business.

All I can say about this unique, experiential episode is WOW. This week we’re continuing our conversation with spiritual Medium Bree Melanson, who teaches me how to “muscle test,” and you get to follow along at home. Muscle testing can help you intuit where your limiting beliefs lie, using your body as a gauge. This third-eye-opening, centering exercise is so easy to do on your own (not while driving!) and will open your mind and heart to subconscious patterns that may be hindering you. I was so surprised by this wild episode and I’m sure you will be too!

---

Not your conventional psychic, Bree Melanson offers accessible and soul-inspiring spiritual straight-talk as a medium and direct channel to help unfold individual and collective potential.

Bree uses her personal journey to her inner knowing and her experience of navigating a series of life bumps and trust falls with the Universe as the foundation for supporting others in connecting with their own innate psychic abilities. She offers a real, raw, and contemporary approach to empowering others to live in their purpose through connecting with their guides, clearing limiting beliefs, having real conversations with the soul and experiencing the ease and freedom of living in alignment with their purpose. Now teaching and speaking to international communities online and in-person, and balancing her time in Big Sur, CA, Bree has more soulful tools in her pocket than you can shake a smudge stick at. And, she keeps it human while casually talking to angels and light beings...NBD.
