It’s wonderful to have my friend Mahesh Hayward on the podcast. Mahesh has been a spiritual seeker all his life, as far back as he can remember. Lying in bed as a small child he used to wonder where the stars stopped. And thinking about where we go when we die. 

Now in his mid 40’s and with an established Yoga practice, Mahesh enjoys transforming and enriching the life of others with his yoga teaching. His upbeat and humorous approach to life has lead him to work with CID, teachers, children and even animals. Bringing a mindful and compassionate awareness to everyday life, making it feel extraordinary.

Here are some of the highlights…

  • How do you heal a dog?
  • How suffering spiritually transformed Mahesh.
  • Looking further that you can see.

    1. Move towards veganism or become fully vegan
    2. Minimise food waste
    3. Never buy a plastic bag
  • Why it’s the best time to be vegan.

It was very touching to hear about Mahesh’s journey and for me a welcome reminder that the beautiful person we see before us is often one who has experienced hardships and suffering before embracing and outwardly expressing the richness their Being.
