Meet Your Trip Leaders
Dr. Manoj Chalam
People call him a spiritual stand up comedian who often falls flat on his big Ganesh belly 🐘 Manoj uses an entertaining story telling style using Hindu/Buddhist deities in his workshops to illuminate deep Vedanta philosophy and help people in their hero’s journey. An Indian-born scientist with a PhD in Chemical engineering from Cornell University, Manoj helps individuals find their archetypes in Hindu Yogic deities and teaches the 5 practices to work with their archetype as a Vedantic practice. He has also compiled a book on the symbolisms of Hindu and Buddhist deity archetypes.
Manoj is in the business of story telling to inspire people. And podcasts / you tube videos is the new compelling media to tell stories. Manoj was interviewed recently by the Ram Dass foundation for their podcast on "The Deities". Manoj, Jyothi and Kurt have created an “online ashram” under Patreon.
Jyothi Chalam is a scholar of Vedanta, the philosophy of self realization. And Manoj’s teacher. Jyothi has a gift of teaching Vedanta with “Rasa”, the heart centered practices of devotional non duality. Jyothi teaches workshops on the Upanishads at ashrams, yoga studios and yoga conferences such as Yoga Journal conference and Asia Yoga Conference. Jyothi is also an accomplished vocal musician of the South Indian Classical tradition. She has performed at many events both in US and India. Her music is the culmination of both her philosophical meditations, deep spiritual devotion and people get into deep abidance in the Self with her chants.
Lori is the Shakti of Seva and Yoga for our pilgrimage; she is the creator and facilitator of feel.focus.flow.™, an embodiment practice that combines guided meditation with intuitive movement and somatic exploration to help restore us to our natural state. This practice is rooted in the spiritual traditions of Yoga, Tantra and Vedanta while seeing and speaking to the common threads in ALL spiritual traditions around the world. feel.focus.flow.™ is much more than a movement practice, it is a lifestyle and a philosophy that helps you to awaken and evolve. Balanced Shiva/Shakti, Lori will help you ride the energy of India with ease and grace.
