"When we shut off the mystery or awe factor in life, we not only curtail growth but also unknowingly make life mechanical." Sri Sri RavishankarYogic masters in the past shared the secrets to the power of consciousness with a select few. In today's information age, we can choose to know these secrets with the help of a clear intellect. Intellectual clarity accompanies a calm mind. Practices taught by Sri Sri Ravishankar have helped me in this regard. I now teach some of these breath-centric meditation practices. These practices are designed to increase one's alertness. I am grateful for the intuitive skills which I have developed through them. Through my talks and workshops, I want to inspire and encourage others to experience the powers hidden within themselves.
