Mehndi, also known as henna across the globe, is a paste often associated with good fortune and positivity. It is one of the oldest forms of body art originated by humans. Women and girls get their hands and feet laden with this paste on auspicious occasions. Be it weddings or festivals like Diwali, Bhai Dooj, Teej or Eid – Mehendi is an extremely cherished way to drench into the celebratory feels for most girls. While some women swoon over its aromatic fragrance, others absolutely love their hands adorned with pretty and intricate mehndi designs. But now, as the time has advanced, it is common for men to apply mehendi as well. Mehndi Designs For Beginners

Acharya Sadashiva (Stephen Hynson)

sadashiva headshotI was introduced to Kundalini Sadhana in 1973 and it has been a part of my life ever since. It is with the Grace of God, the support of my teachers, an  d my own perseverance that I now find myself with the opportunity to share my passion with others. My path to this moment was not a straight trajectory but there has been the constancy of a longing for the Divine paired with a very palpable felt sense, cultivated by our practices of an inner awareness, that guides and informs my daily life. It is a daily life filled with my practice, my marriage, my children and grandchildren, my work as studio furniture artist, and my work in counseling as a depth psychologist.

I was initiated as an Acharya by Swami Khecaranatha, in a ceremony in Ganeshpuri, India, on January 11, 2020. As I told Nathaji, I thought I was going to retire. Instead I have been given the opportunity to be in service and deepen in the work. Come share the practice and exploration with me.
