Tea: Can it Help You Embrace Your Life & Health?
Tuesday, April 21st, 2009
They say the path to wholeness is in embracing everything in your life. The good and the bad, the hard and the simple, the dark and the light, yin and yang so to speak. In essence every part of yourself. That sounds obvious enough but really we all know how hard it is to do. Especially when you are in the midst of living without the space and time to reflect on your life.
How did you get where you are today?
That was the question I was asking myself the other day after a jarring dream. We have all had that, right? A dream that just rocked your night, week, even life…
As I sat with my cup of tea (like half the people in the world and perhaps some of them were also pondering) when I finally realized that my lesson was to accept all of my life experiences including the ones that weren’t ideal.

The Pure Tea Leaf
Friday, September 12th, 2008
I have just come back from visiting beautiful, funky Portland, Oregon, where my parents and brother own and run an Organic Vegetarian Late Night International Café – Kalga Kafe. It has the essence of that which I grew up with living in the US as a first generation Indian (from India).
The love of nourishing others through warmth and food has become my entire family’s profession. So if you ever go to Portland check out Kalga Kafe and try the pizza. It’s my mom’s homemade pizza made even better by my perfectionist chef brother. Visit them at 4147 SE Division Street, Portland, OR 97202.
At the restaurant my brother serves Tao of Tea pure leaf tea. A beautiful thing that is available at World Market nationally. We just had dinner last week with Veerinder, the creative owner, who is a corporate man gone green. He also has the love of hospitality and has perfected that in his teahouses. Check out his website to find out more about tea especially authentic chai.

Welcome to My Blog
Friday, September 5th, 2008
I start this blog with the hope of stimulating my mind and those of others about the benefits of merging East and West. I recently reread Siddhartha by Herman Hesse after many years. It was a beautiful reminder of how we strive to find our spirit and life purpose in our daily choices. Health and wellness, in my mind, is the balance of your mind, body and spirit in daily living.
Stimulating your mind by learning and gaining knowledge as your foundation is crucial in making decisions for your overall wellness.
Strengthening your body and having the ability to function at an optimal level physically is equally important. Nutrition knowledge alone will not suffice. Implementing your knowledge and actually exercising is key to creating and maintaining a healthy and stress free body.
Synchronizing those pieces with your personal energy and spirit is the final and perhaps most important piece of the entire package. So with those goals in mind I begin my journey of sharing with others. Welcome to a world of growth as we synchronize the best of East and West knowledge, philosophy, and heart.
