Awakening Presence with Acharya Shunya Pratichi Mathur: Discover the Vedic path of evolution of consciousness, spiritual growth, and ultimate self-healing.The ancient Vedic sister sciences of Yoga, Ayurveda and Vedanta beckon each one of us to fulfill our divine potential and recognize our true spirit nature, the divine Self. The three sciences outwardly focus on mind, body and spirit respectively, yet in their own way, the fundamental and interior message is common to the three sciences, and universal: How to live in an empowered way, with authenticity of Self knowledge and compassion for all beings.

Join internationally renowned Vedic master teacher and author Acharya Shunya, as she shares essential insights from the venerable Vedic tradition on awakening presence, and expediting a beautiful spiritual unfolding to reconnect with who you really are.

With mastery of Vedic texts and scriptures, ease of expression and poetry in articulation of Sanskrit prose, Vedic master teacher Acharya Shunya shines the light on a timeless spiritual path, facilitating enduring affirmative transformation in consciousness and living joyfully in the present moment. Your inner knowingness can be awakened, but only a unique inner journey will lead you to it. Come listen to a master expound upon this journey.

Reveal Your Superpower with Sarah Mclean: 
Could it be that your personal power is directly related to your ability to pay attention? Sarah McLean, Hay House Author and meditation expert, believes it's so. And, she'll show you why. Most people live their lives with a continuous partial attention. Not truly engaged, but kind of half listening, half distracted, or easily thrown off track because of the demands from their to-do lists, their various mental musings, or their electronic companions.

Meditation, specifically mindfulness meditation, can help anyone reclaim his or her ability to pay attention. And attention is the most important ingredient for living a powerful, purposeful life. Attention is powerful. After all, what you pay attention to is enlivened in your life. You can learn to deal with distractions by strengthening your attention muscle with simple meditation and mindfulness practices so you can 1. Be more focused on the present moment and: • Savor each moment of your life by engaging your attention on what you are doing while you're doing it; • Be more mindful in your communications whether with your family members, loved ones, and those you work with; • Be alert to opportunities, creative responses, and inspiration—all which are only available if you are paying attention. 2. Increase your interior awareness and: • Become more aware of your thought patterns, reactions and emotions; • Tune in to your gut feelings and inner knowing; • Make choices based on your true values rather than out of habit. 3. Enhance your ability to focus on one thing at a time and: • Attend to what is important to you without distraction; • Finish projects more easily and with more accuracy; • Be present to the people that are in front of you (without your devices interrupting) so you can create true relationships. Reclaim your superpower: discover simple mindfulness tools and meditation techniques that train your attention and enhance your ability to be more present, self-aware, and focused.
