Week 1: April 21 - 27

Punnu Wasu

Once you install the mantra within your being, it starts resonating. It starts cleansing the physical, mental, emotional, intellectual and bliss bodies. It makes you more and more peaceful, calm, and happy! Whenever I’m disturbed by any situation, if I chant, I am relaxed and power of mantra and music tunes the environment all around me."
Punnu Singh Wasu is an Indian vocalist, musician, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. He was born and raised in Hyderabad, India into a family that has a true love for Kirtan and spirituality. He began studying harmonium and singing at the tender age of 5. At age 10, he moved on to learning Hindustani (Indian Classical Music) while traveling with his father throughout India singing the beautiful verses of Kirtan. Nowadays Punnu performs Kirtan, Xtatic Kirtan, Indian Fusion, Indian Classical music, Sufi, Bollywood music as well as Sound Healing. He also has his own Kirtan Academy for studying devotional music and traditional Indian instruments as well as Sound Healing Academy and leads music workshops in combination with yoga & meditation.
Punnu recorded and released his first album Bhakti Child in 2011 followed by Karuna in 2013.

Zena El Khalil

At the beginning of my career, my art was about raising the issues of patriarchy in Lebanon. After a period of introspection and awakening, instead of finger pointing, I started to look at the former militia men in power as mirrors of myself. I started to ask in my art “How can I bring them into my heart? How can love transform? How can I be a vehicle for love?”
Zena el Khalil believes in the positive impact that art can have on the world. Born year of the Dragon, she is a visual artist, writer and Nāda yoga instructor based in Beirut. Her work includes mixed media paintings, installations and performance that focus on creating a culture of peace through love, compassion, forgiveness and empathy. She holds a Masters of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in NYC, a Bachelor of Graphic Design from the American University of Beirut.
Zena has also completed two yoga teacher trainings certified by the International Yoga Alliance; Nāda Yoga (Heart of Sound 200hr RYT) in Rishikesh, India and Hatha Yoga (Indea Yoga 250+hr RYT) in Mysore, India. El Khalil exhibits internationally, including New York, San Francisco, Miami, London, Paris, Tokyo, and Dubai. She has also held solo exhibitions in Lagos, London, Munich, Turin and Beirut.

Mari Smith

"When on social media, develop your soft skills.  Go beyond the glimpse, be discerning and listen,  go deeper into what you choose to engage with … have empathy and compassion for what you find.  Before you hit the send button, ask yourself, ‘What is my deepest intent?’ this will keep your ego in check and allow you to respond with empathy."
Often referred to as “the Queen of Facebook,” Mari Smith is considered one of the world’s foremost experts on Facebook marketing and a top Social Media Thought Leader. Forbes describes Mari as, “… the preeminent Facebook expert. Even Facebook asks for her help.” IBM named Mari as one of seven women who are shaping digital marketing. She is coauthor of Facebook Marketing: An Hour A Day, and author of The New Relationship Marketing. Mari also has a passion for personal and professional development and helping raise consciousness on the planet; she is a founding member of ATL (Association of Transformational Leaders) and a member of TLC (Transformational Leadership Council). 


Devi Ward Erickson

"My lineage of Tibetan Tantrik practices was founded by women. Most of the other (patriarchal) traditions end the central channel at the navel; they totally erase the pelvis! We understand that during orgasm the moving prāṇas brush the central channel, giving us a glimpse of enlightenment. I think it is a travesty of justice that we as human beings don’t have instruction on how to make our orgasm last for more than 10 seconds... to be more than a genital sneeze."

Christine Marie Mason

"We can weave together peace, pleasure, and polyvagal theory; it’s only when you’re in deep relaxation and not in a defended state that you can actually feel pleasure. Your peace is not just your key to walking in the world in an undefended state, it’s opening the doorway to enjoying your given embodied life."
Christine is the founder of Rosebud Woman. She has a deep interest in women's wellness and the liberation of all people. She hosts a weekly podcast, the rose woman, and writes weekly letters on love power and womanhood to more than 30,000 people. As a yogi, bhakta, tantrika and mystic Christian, Christine draws on ancient wisdom, while working with current modalities including neuroscience informed collective trauma healing. She's authored seven books, and is the co-founder of Sundari, an experimental community, meditation center and medicinal farm on Hawaii. She's appeared on radio, tv, print and podcasts (from NPR to Vogue to TEDx), speaking on conscious entrepreneurship, freeing the mind and body, activism and sexual and intimate wellness. She's a mother of four and a grandmother. She's taught yoga and led chant, alongside Adam Bauer, all over the world, from Argentina to India.
