Life purpose is calling … Are you ready ?

Salutations and Happy New Year!

Life purpose is calling you …Are you ready to answer the call?

Go inside and pick up the line …

We had the Blessings of the Full Moon to kick start our New Year off and I am sure that it brought much needed clarity and resolution to our life, we almost could scan ourselves and see through all our hidden secret places inside. The New Moon on the 17 of January , also a great reminder for rebirth  …

Fortunately this month we have another Full Moon on the 31th and this brings forth a second chance to review our New Years purpose and actually re-connect a little bit deeper with the truth lying inside.

As the New born year arrives we always try to set new years resolutions which allows them to be a new tool for us to re- connect with the purpose in our life. But, somehow this year it felt very natural and clear and all we really needed to do is to trust this inner deep calling without hanging up the line even if the person that is calling ( your own yourself) is someone that you don’t know yet.

It is always very effective to bring our attention and our energy to the calling path that is manifesting from the inside out, but, many times we are still not sure if the path we are on is the right one or if is worth to bring our energy into it.

I invite you to take away this doubt and insecurity as part of the game of life without fear and begin this New Year letting go of all your projections that is coming from an outside point of view.


See your life as an ongoing Masterpiece of Art that you are working on gradually and allow changes to compose with your purpose in life, making adjustments is part of our purpose and being flexible is about being alive.


Having 2 full moons in one month gives you the chance to see the first picture and  letting go of things that do not resonate with you anymore and re-call again from a deeper point of view.

Why are we so afraid of making mistakes or entering a wrong path?

There is no such thing as a mistake or bad decision, these are  our best ways of learning the lessons we need to learn in this life to take forward in our quest for enlightenment.

Here I am  inviting you to perceive the deeper call from your Naked Self and to listen carefully to its message.

How do you surrender to this deeper voice from this inner clear space inside ?

How do you accept gracefully the nature of  being in tune with yourself, receiving a flash of wisdom and allowing yourself to trust it.

Many times we stray from our destined path  to where we don’t belong. So, we can re-connect again with our inner meaning and find our tune again that establishes the true path that we must follow. So, join this unknown path as an invitation for you to perceive with more clarity who you really are and your next role in this  “Play of Life”.


We can only compose with the “Master Play of Life” when we clear understand our hole.

There is no Purpose in one’s life without resonating with the fuller picture.



Sit in a comfortable position on a chair or on the floor.



  1.  Close your eyes and bring your hands to the Heart Centre, the left in contact with your heart and the right on the top. Relax the shoulders , face and jaw. Soften the space between your eyebrow.


Listen to your heart allowing the breath to come in and out as naturally as this mudra feels.  Observe all your thoughts , sensations, imaginations and contemplate them. Have no judgments , Be in tune with your inner core.

2.    Grasp your hands together on Sahasrara Mudra on the top of your head.

Feel your heart open to give and receive without fear, without attachments and without illusions.

Intension : Open yourself to give and receive love and light, transforming bad experiences into pure wisdom and knowledge, feeling purified and blessed from the inside and out.

Be ready to compose with the Mandala of your Life.

Feel if this position feels whole with your inner core,  composing  a natural flow of peace and love within your heart and with the whole .

Play with these two mudras and find the connection between you and your purpose in life.  Enjoy your practice throughout this month until the Full Moon on the 30th of January  .

Try to practice at least 3 minutes daily on each mudra.

Naked with your Soul

Intimate with your Soul



As the end of the year draws closer , winter arrives with its invitation for deeper connection with our inner self. At this time of the year everything gets too intense, and specially self -judgments  about everything that happened during the year. It is a great time for Meditation

As the days are getting darker and darker, we become more and more introspective  reaching inner spaces within. Perceiving the hidden treasures that underline our surface. Meditation just happens naturally and we receive gifts of this inner connection.

As the trees when they lose their leaves and show us their naked bodies , it’s now the time to become NAKED WITH OUR SOUL  and go beyond the ever changing surface.

Only when we become naked with our soul are we able to re-connect with our essence and be recharged with the inner message that we will carefully listen without judgment of fear.

So here I am to invite you to become intimate with your soul, hear the whispers and the messages that are coming from this deep connection!

Become one with who you are beyond your resistance, beyond your masks beyond your fears.

This coming Full Moon on December 3rd will bring you clarity to your heart and soul.

Be good to yourself and to others without judgment, just melt your heart in the light of your soul.



Sitting in a chair or cross leg position, hands  in any position that you feel comfortable and follow your breath as you close your eyes :

Inhale hold your breath and  look all projections that you have of yourself, what you should be doing , who you are ,  who would you like to be or  what you should do. Hold your breath until you able to.

Be careful if you have high blood pressure.

On a long and deep exhalation start to take your “clothes off” , or all the mental an emotional , worries , frustrations ,  letting everything go that identifies with your ego. Try to forget who you think you are or what you should be doing. LET GO …

Continues with this movement of breath until you get into your naked soul.

Sing something that comes from your soul , that you love to sing , enjoy it!

Become one with your shining light as you receive the blessings of the Full Moon.

Autumn- Contemplation and Meditation


Fall with grace and gratitude

As we reach the maturity of our inner and outer perceptions, nature offering us a Festival of Colours just as a “Good Bye Party ” before winter arrives. The Fall brings maturity and detachment which allows us to reflect upon the infinite aspect of our being, beyond the outside pleasure and joy of the summer.

It’s about letting things go we don’t need anymore and letting them circulate into the “Mandala of  Life” as they will recycle and return to us in the future with new teachings and new challenges.

Lots of people feel depressed and unplaced when the fall comes. They know that it’s the first call for the depths of winter and that each day will be darker and colder.

Make sure you keep practicing your yoga exercises and breathing, this will help  balance the yin/yang energies.  , also do not miss the natural beauty of the fall, keep a connection with nature as it is absolutely essential for inner healing .

Let’s perceive the Fall with our arms open as we detach ourselves from unnecessary thoughts and emotions and let’s connect with our inner light and prana that will help us to build the inner fire within.

Check our Fall Season to see if you can participate of ours sessions at Cricket St Thomas Leisure Club.



Meditation for Letting go …


  1. Open your heart centre by holding both arms out with your hands open on the side of your body keeping your elbows bended in a comfortable position . ( see diagram below left)
  2. Inhale deeply and exhale completely, letting go everything that you need to let go.
  3. Visualize leaves falling from the trees without any struggles or attachment.
  4. Be open to let it go …


Activating your inner light-

Let the light overcome the darkness as we connect with our inner fire.


  1. Pran Mudra – Thumbs touching the ring and little finger.
  2. Breath of Fire- Short and sharp inhale through the nose follow by sort and sharp exhale. Inhale and exhale quickly felling the navel point moving inward and releasing. DON’T DO IF YOU PREGNANT, just inhale and exhale long and deep with a nice smile on your face !
  3. Feel the lightness shining through your body , mind and spirit. Trust this light , it will guide your way always , it will shine through the darkness as you remove ignorance and fear.
  4. To finish , inhale deep and hold your breath for at least 6 second shinning the light from within out. DON’T HOLD YOUR BREATH IF YOU HAVE HEART CONDITIONS OR IF YOU PREGNANT.

Enjoy your inner light!  Light others with Joy Peace and love !


Light a candle and gaze at the flame for a few minutes without blinking and then close your eyes visualize the light flame in your Ajna Chakra.

Meditate and realise !

With love

In Tune with the Full Moon

The Full Moon of October is known by the Harvest Moon.

It is time to connect with your inner light and allow your intuition to guide your meditation.

Let’s open ourselves to be inspired by creativity , courage and inner strength.

Lets also be more aware of others and more sensitive in our relationships.

Lets transform the power of our inner spirit into self-healing and self realization.

It is time to share our inner light and expand it into all aspects of our life.

Also it is time to see things that are ready to be recycle and given back to the Universe, starting point to be aware of what needs to let go, so life will flow with grace into this next season.

Please take a very good look of all that is manifesting into your life and listen clearly to the inner insights that your meditation will whisper within you.

Do not take any extra weight into your backpack , let the extra heavy stuff that does not belong to you to be taken care by those that actually have created them.


Bringing all 5 finger tips touching each other representing the 5 elements in our life:

Take time to follow your breath as comes in and out naturally and fully.

Feel your inner spirit expanding for all aspects in your life as you are able to take a deeper view of your:

home, work, relationships, challenges, understanding, sharing, creativity, connection, strength, failures, disappointment and everything that is being display for you.

Let your intuition to guide you with clarity  showing the Big Picture of your Life.

After this meditation, lie down on savasana, relaxation posture and relax completely.



Salutations from the Full Moon!

New Portal …

We found a very special place to begin this second year in the UK. Somerset has offered us a re-connection with nature with a lots of greens, trees , flowers and also 12 miles from the ocean.

I can’t explain how much I love to be able to step on the ground with my bare feet, work in the garden, plant and be surrounded by nature. It really brings a feeling of wholeness, calm and peace….

The “Curves of Life” invites us to experience the Sunrise and the Sunset in so many perspectives from the inside and out. …
The Moon always guides us to perceive all different cycles of life with wisdom and clarity …
So far there have been many curves in our life’s , many Sunrises and Sunsets, but we have always stayed in tune with the cycles of the Moon …

Life invites us to experience new perceptions and new dimensions of our being in connection with the whole,  and I must say that this New Portal that has been opened is all about that.

It’s been really great for us to be back in nature and perceive it is powerful source and how its connect us into a deeper and higher dimension of our being into connection with others.

Our garden brought us Lavenders, Lemon balms, beautiful flowers and a variety that I am still learning about. We been planting Rosemary, Basil, Mint, Verbena, Parsley and different flowers that we can eat, cherry tomatoes and little by little we will plant more and more. We are also doing lots of learning as well and we are opening new spaces to plant.


I’ve been making some very special potions of natural products made from herbs we grow and sending them for my lovely friends as a way of connection and healing. It’s been a magical experience.

If you feel you need a potion from Nature’s Call, please let me know and I will connect  to you and I will post by mail this very special “Astral Gift”.



It’s basic recipe is Love , Nature and Alchemy of the Sun and the Moon …

Love & Alchemy




At the same time we will love to share this with our friends that we know they will love and also need time of re-connection of body, mind and soul.

It would be  nonsensical to have this place if I could not share it.

Come visit us  !

First year living in the UK …


It’s almost been one year since we moved to the UK and I must say it was quite an intensive year, I would like to share a little about our journey so far.

 Moving countries is always a great way to immerse yourself totally in a different perspective of life, and challenge yourselves to new episodes that we never really thought could exist. This is about being open to give and receive by composing with life’s invitation …

When we walk into a completely new scene of life , we must at first observe and feel how can we compose ourselves into this already existing picture. This way we all learn from each other and an interchange of culture and energy happens naturally.


Our main goal this year was our family, as life invited us into an inwards experience.

We took the time to support my son Anthony giving him structure to adjust into a completely different life style and a new system of education which brought him new visions and perceptions about himself. At first Anthony was very resistant about moving, as he grew up in Brazil and had  very much  a free life growing up at Jatoba Terra Prana and also all his friends were In Brasil.

With our guidance and discipline he actually bloomed out of the fear and resistance as he embrace and accepted the new challenges life had brought him and he really made a lot of progress from the inside out . Anthony made many new friends and actually enjoyed Thistley Hough Academy and also his kickboxing lessons near by our house and beautiful Drawing Classes with Laura Potter-Dunn.  He developed a routine and was surprised with his accomplishments.

It is  hard to leave your home country when you are 14, so this was our first main goal for this year.

We came to Stoke on Trent and  lived in a quiet Terrace House in a dead end street , sometimes the neighbours made a lots of noise and it was like watching a soap opera live on your own street.

I must say how much I enjoyed this first year and how much I connected with the earth element. Since Anthony was born, I believe we have never been so close and we really took this time to work the family plot.

I believe that was a big surprise for us all of how we adapted and reverenced what life had to offer us and how much we learned this last year in a totally different way that we never thought possible.

I really took the time that I never had before to write the Mandala Book and it was a very special occasion for me, this project  unfolded beautifully during the winter. Martin also helped me so much with this project as the book was in English. Tony , my ex husband told me about his publisher and we contacted Rachel Greene at Penoaks that worked along side us with the book .

Martin also took time to find amazing instruments to build our repertory , as we had to sell everything in Brasil before we came. Those instruments were part of our workshops and classes during this year.

Every week we had a lovely group at the Chiron Institute at the Healing Room upstairs where I shared Mandala Yoga in a very natural and organic way, it felt just perfect for this time. Thanks for John and June Shapter that opened the space for this weekly Mandala Experience during the process that I was writing the book it was really special!

Living close by the Chiron Institute also gave me the chance to participate and receive some sessions and was a very nice time out from the” boys” during this last year …

Mandala Group Mondays( our last class): Helen, Sandra, Caroline, Jo, Teddy, Cath and her husband

We met Carly Wurly and she became a Mandala Yoga student and also help me to promote the Mandala Yoga sessions at the Chiron inviting her friends. Carly became a nice healing friend as she also works with Sound Healing. We joined a Indian Head massage course together on the fall and it was great to exchange our healing practice , especially during the winter. Carly hosted a lovely event at a Mongolian Yurt where we shared Mandala Yoga and Sound Healing, it was an amazing afternoon of partnership , love and healing with a beautiful group. Thanks Carly for your energy and support.

We met Emma Dunn in our first Mandala Yoga Class. Emma and I went for a great walk all the way to Newcastle and we had an amazing time talking about life, family, challenges and so on… later I met her daughter Laura Potter-Dunn ( illustrator and artist) who contributed with one of her illustrations for the Mandala Book. Laura became Anthony’s drawing teacher and really took him on a nice Journey through art classes. Thanks Emma and Laura , it was great to meet you both!

We met John Crosbie and other sound healers at the Community Concert at the Chiron . It was a great experience that led us to meet Moyra Irving and other beautiful people at the Healing Clinic and the Extra Guest Charity. It was so important to integrate with the community and share our energy with the people. Thanks so much for all this beautiful work  that you all share.

It was really special to share shiatsu and mandala yoga at the Healing Clinic, I love to connect with the community and meet the people this way, it was a gift to meet everyone in the Clinic.

John Crosbie invite me to join” Sacran” a beautiful devotional experience that brings together the essence of love , celebration and sharing from different cultures without boundaries. We had a great time chanting, praying,  drumming and creating with John, Sheena, Sandra with the Violin and Elva with the Shamanic Drum. Great sharing at the Chiron Institute with different groups. Thanks John for all your energy and getting everyone together in this Journey!

I was so blessed to meet my Shiatsu sister Agnes Fulop, we became friends and also we made some great exchanges of shiatsu and motherhood . Agnes also has a son the same age as Anthony, so we could relate to each other in different aspects of our life.

I joined Deb and Jenni  at the Yoga Smith and felt home with my yogini sisters and grateful to practice with them as it really help me to  move the prana and remove Kapha during the winter. That also lead us to share and meet really special people in many different ways. Thanks so much Deb and Jenni ,it really special to meet you both and practice at Yoga Smith.

Great Raw chocolate from Jenni: Mr POPPLE’S Chocolate

I also met Wendy and the beautiful things she sells from India , soon we realized that we were neighbours , so I had the chance to buy something special for our new house and meet her lovely dog.

We had the great experience to share Mandala Yoga with Jay Rossi and his wonderful group, we had very deep sessions in Stoke and later in Nottingham. Thanks Jay , it was a gift to meet you!

Coming to an end of a Cycle Jo Aire invited us  be part of the Solstice Day at the Spode. What a perfect way to close a cycle in the “Potteries”, sharing at the Spode Rose Garden Center. We had a delightful  morning of nature connection through a Zen Walk and Mandala Yoga . Deep gratitude for this day of sharing with the Friends of the Spode Rose Garden and the Community of Stoke. I loved to share in the open air , that was a very special morning!

Martin and I drove  Anthony to Manchester Airport on July 1 to spend 2 months with his Dad in NY and to do an internship at Drug Policy Alliance for his schools work experience. We all had an amazing feeling of accomplishment, and we were very proud of our boy that had completed his year with so much dedication, friendship and love from his friends and teachers. Congratulations Anthony!

We had only one 1 more event in Cheshire in Nantwich with the Comprehensive Yoga Fellowship on July 2nd. It was an unforgettable day!!!! A Good Bye gift from this first year in the UK !

It was a really special day meeting a great group of teachers who were taking their teacher’s training and also experienced yoga teachers. It was a nice book signing as well as everything unfolded naturally at the right time and the right place.


Thanks Deb  Jackson for inviting us! It was a beautiful group and an overflowing experience!

During this year we found a special place to go for walks  and we met many different friends that taught us in many different subjects of life, family , community and partnership. The Westport Lake has been the laboratory for this first  year experience in the UK , there we explored different aspects of life and relationships , also we exercised , practiced yoga, meditation, contemplation on a daily basis.  The last month we were gifted with our friends feathers that were incorporated in our classes and workshops.

Hope we all keep connected!


Hari Om everyone!


It’s been a while …


It’ is been a long time since my last post ,

I must tell you that it has been a very intense process  writing the ” Mandala Yoga” book.

I was able to allow myself to receive the winter invitation to go deeper into this project and at last get it done!

My life style changed completely this last year living in England  and this new cycle of my life brought me  the maturity to focus and be silent. Life has been offering us a totally different reality where we have to be much more in touch with our inner selves.

Many people do not know what it is to allow there inner perception to overflow transforming  the outer reality and naturally drawing the destiny in their life.

It is great to celebrate the spring  and the rebirth of mother earth …

Re-connecting with the inner and outer flow of life and prana …

My word is GRATITUDE !

For this beautiful and dark winter that allowed us to be in contact with our deepest self …

For all the great people that supported me and allowed this project to come true …

My posture is of a WARRIOR!

For being able to battle with inner and outer obstacles accomplishing this project without fear or doubt, simply wanting to share something that has been resonating with me for a long time …

My hands are in PRAYER !

Wishing you all these pure connections that comes from my heart!




Life’s DJ …

How can we embrace the new rhythms that life has to offer, and co-create something fresh and unique …

How do we avoid taking refuge in our known old habits that has been replayed over and over …

WHY do we plan new steps with a suppose TUNE that may come in the Future but does not really exist now …

Today , I will call up into ” the Great Mandala of Life” and see what comes around …

When I was a performing artist in the 90′ s in NYC, I participated in improvisation  performances in the East Village called DJs and Dancers, the idea was based upon you(the Dancer) being able to improvise together with music and movement. We were co-creating together …

The following year we started a New Series called  ” BREAK OPEN ”  at the Solo arts Group in Chealsea.

This event was a very innovated  form of performance art where was an open evening of dancers, musicians and  artists that all improvised together in the moment. Everything was about  BEING IN TUNE with what was being offered to you , GOING WITH THE FLOW ….

If someone made a mistake, that mistake had to be part of the flow ( even falling over) so there were no mistakes because there was no Script, everything was improvisation between artists.

I also had the experience to perform with the Theatre of Dreams direct by Bob Paton in NYC. Same concept of improvising the audience dreams, someone from the Audience would share one of their dreams  and we would co-create  an act or scene from it.

Musicians were  part of the ensemble, they would start us off with the Dream’s Tune of which our improvisation would begin and then we would all create together, it was a great experience of being in the tune with the present moment

Teaching us to embrace what is offered to us and allowing ourselves to  BE IN TUNE with NOW.

The interesting phenomenon is when we realise that we are part of it , we co-create with Life’s DJ !

Knowing that we are not here to be in total control of everything, but to co-create and resonate with all …

Knowing that we are open to the changes and  challenges that life may offer to us  …

So Life’ DJ surprise us with different tune, sometimes it’s rock and roll, sometimes it’s a circular Dance, sometimes is a lullaby or just a deep Capella, sometimes it’s the sound of nature,  sometimes it just ring our bell and becomes SILENCE  or NOTHINGNESS and this is the time to hear our INNER SOUND.

Playing with Life’s DJ  really brings us this unique moment of EMBRACING THE NOW .

It allow us to receive the present tune of life that has been given to us fully accepting the invitation. From here anything can happen because we are not in control of it, you become a partner with the flow of life, the ego has no play into this composition  because there is not a Maestro or Conductor , as the Flower of life or a Mandala there is no beginning or ending.



Be ready to listen and improvise with LIFE’S DJ anything could happen even the most challenge one-


But remember you are part of it!








New beginnings …

pena pavao

How many times can we start all over from the beginning …

How many times do we realize the end of a cycle …

How many times we perceive the turning point of a new cycle …

Yes we can always renew our views and see life in total different directions …

Yes , we can always let go of things that were part of our journey but no longer brings us inquiries or growth …

But on reality there is no beginning and no ending …

We bring our experiences and they are part of our present and future …

PAST/ PRESENT/ FUTURE  as the Mandala of Life …

Yes , we can transform our life anytime , anyway in any direction …


Following our internal and profound call that lies in a highest consciousness …

Believing that beyond our fears and attachment life continues to flow in its true natural way …

Without beginning or ending, just a constant natural flow …


As we take  each step one at a time as we sow our destiny in each breath, thought, belief and faith…

So here we are now living in the UK …uniao familiae



Knowing that everything is in a constant flux of changes …DSC07316

Being ready for the most incredible surprises in life …

Beyond good or bad, surprises are surprises …

We don’t expect , we don’t control, we just don’t know ..

Those are the real gifts in life, the real presents …

They allow us to create,  improvise, to be alive …

We receive the present moment as it is …

Without any expectation …

Without any projection …

Without ego …

We are ready !




From our essence which is infinite, we are connected in a perfect harmonious Mandala of life’s existence.

We are here to share!!!


Movement, Pause, Breath, Sound, Silence, Meditation …


Mandala Yoga Is


The real changes in the world starts within each one of us …

Not being afraid of changes is an invitation for self-realization and self over-flowing …

Going beyond “set ups” ideas, going beyond our fears …



1ano se passou …


Um ano se passou …

A vida tao rapidamente nos uniou, nos separou e nos presenteou …

Foram tantos desafios e convites para crescer e amadurecer …

Tudo que ja se foi nos fez ter certeza que nem a tristeza pode nos tirar do caminho da integridade e realidade …DSC07482

Acredito que o sentimento inicial foi a” RAIVA” …

Sentimento que nos levou a despertar para o “trampolim” da vida…



Saltando livre …

Sem culpa …

Sem duvida …

Sem Luta …



Com essa energia que vamos decolar …

E com essa leveza que vamos nos entregar …

E com o  grande amor, libertador, vamos nos  encontrar …


Um amor que desabrocha a cada dia como um flor !11348927_10206984706876540_539991594_n[2]

Dessa vez estaremos juntos e unidos …

Com os aprendizados de todas os testes que passamos nesse ” TEMPO ” …


O tempo foi sabio …

O tempo nos fortaleceu …

O tempo colocou uma pedra em cima de um tempo perdido …

O  ” valioso” tempo perdido que nos despertou para enxergar  …
