Happiness Is Within Ourselves

As the Chair of the Global Yoga Community Board for the World Happiness Summit (@WOHASU) 2017, I was able to meet many inspiring and amazing like-minded people from all over the world. All of them came to Miami, to share their professional knowledge on the various ways to achieve personal, social and global happiness.

However, there was one particular person that I felt really impressed by. Not only  I admired his wisdom and knowledge but more so, how transparent and obvious was his inner joy. I felt very honored to meet and spend some time with Dr. Saamdu Chetri, Director of the Gross National Happiness (GNH) @GNHCentreBhutan of the Kingdom of Bhutan.  He was one of the main guest speakers at the World Happiness Summit and shared with us all, how to find the true meaning of HAPPINESS.

For those of you unable to see him at WOHASU summit, here is a short and extremely inspirational “Vimeo” video/documentary from Bhutan, that summarizes the essence of his many presentations at the WOHASU event, and most important,  illustrates the core of HAPPINESS.

I hope you enjoy this documentary and feel encouraged to find contentment and satisfaction within the infinite blessings of your own life.

Also, I am sharing with you a small video segment of my daughter Sol and I are singing with Dr. Saamdu Chetri – a simple and yet powerful song to remind us to slow down and to stay happy in the midst of the rushing pace of every day. (take this song with you and sing it through the day)

6 Benefits of Down Dog

Downward dog is a deceptively challenging posture that requires lots of strength, and because it involves using the entire body, you can feel its effects from head to toe.

Choosing Compassion

To me, being vegetarian is an aspiration to live as kindly and compassionately as possible. It’s an ongoing process. Nobody is perfect. We cause harm just by living on this planet, but we can all aspire to be mindful and conscientious and to continue making improvements.

Vero’s Lentil Soup

As promised, here is my very simple and favorite vegan recipe. After a good yoga practice and when the weather feels cold, there is nothing more comforting than a hearty homemade vegan soup.
