The “Akasha” or life force is a chronicle of all past, present and future events since our first existence. Used as a life tool, we are able to access this energy and a person’s guides to understand and work through deep-rooted trauma, to heal, to understand our soul’s purpose, to find support to life’s most complex questions, or simply to understand where we came from and how best to live out this life to the fullest.

I don’t remember the first time I tried a lassi, but every first sip I am instantly transported to another place and time. I’m a sucker for the delicate yet complex floral and exotic flavor the saffron and rose provide diffused into the tartness and creaminess of the buttermilk. Smooth and silky, without being heavy, the […]
