Willowhaven Non-profit Program — Orlando
Tuesday, April 23, 2019
Amazing day. We had a program in Orlando with Kim. She runs a non-profit named Willowhaven. This incredible lady works with cancer patients and survivors teaching them veganism, meditation, and yoga, to help the healing process and improve their overall health. She hosts these programs at her home twice a week, cooks all the meals, serves everyone, and shares the newest information about alternative and integrative cancer treatments. All at no cost to anyone.
We had the great honor to present Astrology and Meditation to this fabulous group. Amongst the group was my co-worker, Dr. Winters and his son, Zach, and friend, Fox. We had the audience of a holistic doctor, Shahnaz, a lovely lady. This group showed a great interest in alternative approaches to treatment.
I shared the story of the disciple of Parasara who went into the mountains of Tirupati to get his question answered, “What are the qualities of a noble person who is dear to God” and came back with the answer “Salt, A chicken, a crane, and you.” This story was enjoyed by everyone, created a lot of laughs, and a discussion on the topic of astrology, spirituality, and karma. The questions were wonderful and enlightening. It was a time of sharing some of their own experiences, seeing astrology, perhaps for the first time, as a guidepost in their life.
There was a wonderful Indian vegan meal prepared by my wife, Premanjali, who is, by the way, a gourmet cook. The meal included coconut Moong dal, a beautiful sabji, salad, and rice. We had a meditative call and response kirtan on Kim’s patio. Thanks to our dear friends Shyam and Bhishma for leading such a wonderful kirtan putting everyone in bliss! This was another great day of sharing the joy of astrology, meditation, and kirtan with an incredible group!
