Welcome tribe! This is the final episode of season one of the Visionary Lifestyle podcast! It feels really good that I succeeded in launching the show from india and publishing the first season , mostly recorded in LA, from here. I assure It was NO small feat with the snail slow internet and intermittent power outages! Love you Mother India!!!
Season 2 will launch very soon, and contains all the interviews I did at the International Yoga festival here in in Rishikesh. It’s completely packed with amazing conversations with saints and sages, and lots of the sounds of India. I got access to some very high level teachers who are dropping a LOT of wisdom so make sure you stay tuned in next season. So One of my huge take-aways from my time in India is that it’s NOT quiet! Ha My fantasies about meditating in a silent ashram were quickly squashed haha. The beauty of that though is it became a recurring conversation and a reminder lesson that we must seek the quiet within, and develop the ability to find our center and stillness anywhere we are, and no matter what is going on around us. This is true yoga.
In this episode I’m coming to you from a meditation hut in The Beatles Ashram, also known as the Maharishi Ashram in Rishikesh India. You’ll notice the sound quality difference in this and in future episodes, because I’m now recording out in the open on the road digital nomad style. So you’ll be getting a lot more sounds of the atmosphere. I hope you embrace that and can just think of it as me bringing the world to you:) I was stressed about having the best possible sound quality for you and eventually had to surrender to what I can’t control, which is random voices and sounds that sometimes found their way into the middle of interviews. You’ll see what I mean. I think it really adds to the charm of the interviews.
So I’m wrapping up this first season of the podcast with a heartfelt share about my time in india, which was a bucket list item that I’m really thrilled I can now cross off my list!
I’ll be sharing my insights as a first time yogi in India, as well as some practical packing and travel advice. This episode was recorded after my Ayurvedic panchakarma treatment, and just before the International yoga festival started. Look out for an interview with my amazing panchakarma doctor coming up in the next season, I’m really happy to be bringing you some deep insight about Ayurveda.
