Like the rest of you, I felt a little icky when I learned of their algorithm systems…..sending me more items like the ones I was posting and Liking; sending me more things Facebook thinks I should be paying attention to.

Whisper it and they will come It is 6 A.M. on a Thursday morning in a suburban town of Jodhpur, Rajasthan, northwestern India. I'm on stage about to demonstrate basic Hatha Yoga asanas, looking out at a sea of faces including young children, men, women, teens, retirees, disabled - people from many socio economic backgrounds, many traditions within Hinduism and Muslims. The birds stand quiet in anticipation. Even a crowd of neighborhood stray ...

Like most Westerners, my first exposure to the Rajasthani desert left me perplexed. What do these people eat?! After a few meals at the ashram I realized there is food all around me....great food! An ...

I hadn't done enough homework to prepare myself for life on the other side of the planet. And though I've been a creativity consultant and teacher for two decades, well adept at the change required to acclimate quickly to any new situation, stepping outside Delhi airpor ...
