I don’t know about you, but I’m getting wiped out by all these juice cleanses. Maybe it’s because I already sustain a pretty healthy diet, but personally, the moment I’m done with a juice cleanse, I end up eating worse food than I did before!

Cleansing has turned into an enormous business, and on many levels, I feel that it preys on people’s guilt and self-hatred: “I have been eating so badly — I need to cleanse.” It’s like a form of punishment. Once we have incurred the punishment, we are then absolved — free to do as we like — because we have paid the price. The problem is, the price can get pricey. Some of these cleanses can cost hundreds of dollars!

Shakti Fest is a celebration of life, of creation, of the Divine Feminine that dwells within each one of us. Shakti Fest is a more intimate version of Bhakti Fest, which has been held in September for the past three years. Thousands have come to be part of a rapidly expanding community of people devoted to following the path of the heart through yoga, kirtan and spontaneous expressions of love, joy and well-being!
