What Are Your Three Words For 2014?

Setting a New Year Resolution is believed to go as far back as Babylonian times.

A friend suggested the activity to me after she’d read it in on a blog. It was an easy way to simplify your goals. Instead of making a complicated list of resolutions and ‘to-do’ lists (something I’m very guilty of!) – picking just three words was a way to keep you focused on what you wanted to achieve in the coming year.

Tantra, Karma & Reincarnation! Amazing Interview with Swami Vivekananda Saraswati at Agama Yoga, Koh Phangan

The island of Koh Phangan in southern Thailand is notorious for the Full Moon Party and a hedonistic destination for young backpackers! However, there's so much more to the island than meets the eye. In recent years, it has become a hub for yoga and spirituality and draws thousands of 'soul-searching' travelers who are looking for more than just buckets and beaches. After the New Year's Eve celebrations died down this year, we made our way to Agama Yoga on the beautiful West coast of the island to meet one of the most interesting characters we've come across, the legendary Swami Vivekananda Saraswati. In a mind-blowing encounter we discuss yin and yang, the laws of karma, tantric sex, God and reincarnation!
