    Satsang with Simon Jalonen | Healthcare, Seva, Charity & The Worth of Every Living Being

    In this episode, I’m talking to Simon Jalonen, or Nurse Yogi as you might know him. Simon is a registered nurse, a yoga practitioner and a certified teacher. Simon is also my partner in freedom and in life and it was such a joy to have his perspective and lived wisdom on a Curious Yogi. He is a Swede of few words, but yes, those words are very carefully selected and wonderful. Our conversation today is focused on Seva or selfless service, healthcare work and charity. Where do they all intersect with our sadhana or spiritual lives?

    Alka Srivastava | On Guru, Knowledge, Meditation & Pure Space

    “Meditation is not for being relaxed or gaining some expertise. It’s for recognizing that space as yourself - then you are not fearful of the beginning or end because you recognize yourself as Pure Free and Forever.” In this episode, I’m talking to Alka Srivastava, an extraordinarily advanced meditator and total master who has devoted her life to unfolding Self-awareness. Alka is the youngest daughter of Swami Shyam, founder of the International Meditation Institute in the Himalayas of India. She has been meditating and singing since age three and has spent her life studying the ancient scriptures as illuminated by Swamiji. In this special episode Alka shares her knowledge and wisdom in a way that applies to all who wish to find that inner sense of peace and knowing who they truly are.

    Explicit

    “If you get rid of what you’re not you suss out what you are. Whatever you’re left with is you. And it’s the same with meditation.” Another mind-stretching conversation with teacher and spiritual friend Stewart Gilchrist. We recorded this in Rishikesh during Stew's retreat and it is such a joy and privilege to share it with you. We cover a lot of terrain in this packed episode. Here’s a peek: ➖ Hinduism and Hindutvas ➖Santana Dharma or the Eternal Truth and understanding the ancient aspects of yoga ➖Why people do yoga to get fit and what they're missing ➖What will be the saviour of modern yoga ➖Neti Neti and meditation ➖Understanding the kleshas, particularly abhinevesha ➖The Guru Shishya relationship ➖Mooladhara and communitarianism And ultimately our conversation revolves around getting in touch with your true Self, the eternal truth. Find Stew in London at eastlondonschoolofyoga.com I told Stew I intended to get to the real essence of yoga in this conversation and I think we reached there. Enjoy friends!

  • Satsang with Anandi Brownstein | Cultivating Inner Expansiveness As A Tool To Move Through The World

    Satsang with Anandi Brownstein | Cultivating Inner Expansiveness As A Tool To Move Through The World

    "It's the daily practice of meditation without expectation. It's not a wish-fulfilling cow that if you meditate you'll have a great day. It's the practice of placing the identification on that meditation state as who you are." A loaded, joyful episode filled with satsang and conversation with my dear friend and fellow yogi Anandi Brownstein - a cinematographer and documentary director who shares her lived wisdom with us from a lifetime of meditating and growing up in the Himalayas of India. We surf on some profound concepts and share each of our unique perspectives. Nandi shares her thoughts on life and practice that we can all begin to think about for ourselves; ➖cultivating inner expansiveness as a brilliant tool to move effortlessly in the world; ➖the yogic work of purification and expansion; ➖ maintaining peace as an individual; ➖why confusion happens and how to get out of it and; ➖not identifying with any limiting idea that confines you. She also reads a verse from Sri Nisaragadatta Maharaj’s book of discourse called “I am That” and we discuss Josh Scheri’s podcast “The Emerald”.
