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 Varesh (Jim Rodseth)

Varesh Jim smallI am a native Californian, born and raised in Sacramento. I became interested in my spiritual growth in the 60s, a kind of awakening to the reality that there is more to life than meets the eye. I dabbled in different spiritual traditions, tried to learn to meditation but never settled on a particular practice in which I felt at home. I remember reading about Rudi and I was struck by the high regard and esteem in which he was held by those who knew him. It wasn’t until I met Nathaji, who is a student of Rudi, that I felt that I had found the path I had been searching for.

My meeting with Nathaji crystallized my long held desire to find an authentic spiritual teacher who is as committed to the liberation of his students as he is to his own. Over years that spiritual force awakened by meeting Nathaji has grown within me. That force has been awakened, fostered and matured by our practice and by the grace of our lineage. In 2005 I was initiated into the teacher-training program by Nathaji and in 2011 I began teaching regularly in San Rafael. In January, 2017, I was formally initiated as an acharya in the Rudrananda Pantha, participating in an all-day ceremony conducted in Ganeshpuri, India. I feel a deep sense of gratitude to my teacher and our lineage for the opportunity to teach at my center in Marin County.

My classes are free and open to anyone with a desire to learn to meditate. I love living in Marin County and I love having the opportunity to help anyone, who is sincerely searching for their liberation, to find their way.
