Becoming Whole Again with Radhe

Becoming Whole Again is about aligning our outer nature – the body and its activities, the heart and its emotions and desires and the mind and its beliefs and convictions – with our innermost Truth of Being or Soul. When aligned with the Soul rather than the ego, the mind becomes an instrument of truth, wisdom and self- and world-knowledge; the heart, an instrument for finding lasting joy, love and harmony in all things in life; the vital force, an instrument of true progress and effective power; and the body, an instrument of strength, flexibility and adaptability. This webinar is an introduction to the 3-part Living an Integral Life workshop co-instructed by Radhe, Dr. Vladimir Yatsenko and Jean McElhaney.

Radhe is the Executive Director of La Grace, Sri Aurobindo Integral Life Center. She holds a MBA from Harvard Business School and a B.A. in Finance from the University of Southern California.

Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology: Sister Sciences with Steven Highburger

In most ancient cultures there was never a division between a classically educated person and astrological knowledge. In India this was especially true, and even today in our ‘modern’ times, many traditional Vaidyas, or Ayurvedic doctors, will be versed in some, if not much astrology. Why is that so? Because Ayurveda and Jyotiṣa have always been seamlessly intertwined as sister sciences by a culture that valued the subtle and the subjective as a means for healing. Join us for a look at how these two ancient subjects complement each other and how we might use some simple techniques to examine our lives and understand ourselves better!


Meet the Wives of the Moon with Penny Farrow

Far removed from the myriad of ways we entertain ourselves, the ancients had their own brand of mobile devices – the relentless movement of the heavenly bodies.  The grahas (planets) moved in ways that tirelessly created unique patterns but yet there was a fundamental intelligence and order that could be discerned through patient observation.  And every night was showtime. Not surprisingly, the “star” of the show was the Moon.  Master of shape-shifting and fond of playing peek-a-boo, the quick moving Moon yielding more readily the secrets of that underlying order.

Penny Farrow teaches Jyotisha and Sanskrit full-time, including a new online option. Please visit her newly launched Cosmic Kaleidoscope Journal at Her email is:; website:
