https://hollywoodtothehimalayas.com/ I am working with preeminent female spiritual leader Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati her memoir, HOLLYWOOD TO THE HIMALAYAS: A Journey of Healing and Transformation is being published by Mandala Press; August 3, 2021. She is world renown among devotees, spiritual leaders and even many celebrities. She is touring much of the US in August and September. Sadhvi grew-up among Hollywood’s elite but childhood trauma followed her. Her own reinvention began, as she explains in the book, with a transformative trip to India. She wasn’t so interested in going on the trip but promised herself she’d go with an open heart. That trip changed everything about what she knew of her world and how she wanted to live in it. You can get an immediate sense of her experience by viewing her TEDx talk. Today with so many people are at a crossroad in their own lives right now after experiencing the past year of The Pandemic. People are regrouping on what’s most important, how they want to spend their time, what they really want to do – at home in their relationships, at work in their careers and their life goals. They are soul searching. Sadahvi experienced the ultimate reinvention and by doing so, let go of a life filled with goals of things and bling and started a lifelong spiritual journey. Her own reinvention began, as she explains in the book, with a transformative trip to India. She wasn’t so interested in going on the trip but promised herself she’d go with an open heart. That trip changed everything about what she knew of her world and how she wanted to live in it. You can get an immediate sense of her experience by viewing her TEDx talk. Her spiritual journey is eye-opening, in her memoir, you become immersed as a reader while Sadhvi develops within it – changing everything about herself including her name, clothes, diet, religion, country and even chose a life of celibacy. These decisions she made, she chose a life so different than her upbringing or what perhaps society told her to be, she chose her own course and empowered herself - India is now very much her home. She is extremely open, honest and articulate about her colorful and incredible journey to finding peace, contentment and helping others. Today, Sadhvi wears many hats leading interfaith discussions, she’s on the UN Advisory Council on Religion, the Secretary-General of the Global Interfaith WASH Alliance, dedicated to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene; president of Divine Shakti Foundation, a foundation that runs free schools, vocational training programs, and empowerment programs; and director of the world-famous International Yoga Festival at Parmarth Niketan Ashram, Rishikesh— and Sadhvi’s center in India/spiritual hermitage or ashram - had opened its doors with some 100 beds for COVID patients in its usually yoga halls.
