An intelligently executed plant-source-only diet can work for anyone provided they account for their uniqueness. Learn how to customize your diet and make your food work for you.

    Shaktipat Meditation

    Shaktipat initiation is the awakening of the divine force that is resting in potential within us. This is known as the descent of grace. It usually occurs through a living enlightened spiritual leader, but may occur spontaneously. Once the spiritual energy is activated, it begins to spontaneously move through our body, spiritualizing every cell, every aspect of the DNA, every chakra, every nadi (the channels of the subtle nervous system), every organ and every tissue, so that all consciousness becomes activated into the next evolutionary stage.
