tRecently I was interviewed on the subject of “practical spirituality.”  In the video below, I picked a subject I felt each of us could connect with and apply immediately.

Spirituality is, much like God, money and sex, a loaded word. What does it mean to you? I’m a fan of short and profound explanations, so here is mine:
Being spiritual, or having a spiritual practice is something that happens more often than we think.  I don’t believe it is an isolated moment in a church, yoga class or meditation experience.  For me, “being spiritual” is simply each moment that you find yourself in joy, well-being and alignment.  Spirituality can also be as simple as a moment when you find yourself in flow.  All the better if you have awareness of it and really milk these moments.  In the absence of resistance, wellness prevails.  Well-being, excitement, knowing, playfulness, flow, eagerness, creativity, zest, passion for life, birthing a new desire, sharing smiles, coming into alignment with your desires and seeing manifestations unfold… these are all moments of spirituality and connection.  There are myriad ways you can connect to “Source” or to your own spirituality: through communing with nature, through moving or sitting quietly with yourself, with animals, with children, with your body and even through body awareness.  One of my favorite ways is by practicing deep listening and giving the gift of presence.  Listening to myself, to my body, to others and most importantly to my internal guidance system: my instincts and intuition which have never steered me wrong.

One of the quickest ways for me to get present, listen deeply and connect with my higher self is revealed in the video below.  I hope you enjoy the results and feel them immediately.

Think of Talia as the female version of the Dog Whisperer with the added perk that you can afford her and don’t need to contact a television network or talk to Will Smith to book her. Her specialty, from a very early age is deep communication with animals such as cats, horses and dogs but her passion also encompasses lions and tigers and bears… Oh yes!  She specializes in healthy and holistic behavior modification which your dog or puppy will love and beg you for because to get your little guy to do whatever you want, the behavior modification usually starts… with you!

Yes, Talia works closely with both you the owner and your pet to help you lovingly understand your pets point of view.  Understanding an animals needs and what it’s trying to communicate to you is paramount.  Whether it’s begging to much, sad, angry, 395054_2746705619837_1390855272_nbarking all the time, has too much energy or is just acting strange, Talia can help everyone coexist happily, and isn’t that what we all need?   Animals are very loving and adaptable creatures. They are worthy of a high level of trust love and respect, and after even a handful of sessions with Talia, she will have either deepened your already profound bond, or restored your relationship with your favorite little guy.

I have never come across someone who is more passionate about animals and helping them coexist happily in the world with us than Talia.  She just understands how to tap into animal psychology and then make it accessible to you.  With nearly two decades of experience I cannot give a higher recommendation to anyone seeking to improve their relationship with their pet.

All animals help restore the delicate balance between man and nature on this planet. The more we understand  them the better we can create harmony in ourselves and all of nature.   But anyone, pet owner or other, can benefit from at least one session or phone session with Talia. Her education and background is extensive and I have personally sought her council for my cats on countless occasions.  She is first on my list to call for any pet concern.

Talia is someone I trust.

A Man Named Olaf

Olaf Hartmann is one of the more powerful healers, bodyworkers and keepers of universal intelligence that I know.  He has a relationship with nature, the body and the universe, the likes of which I have never seen before.  He helps people get rid of their pain and live a happy and purposeful life.  This man has lived by himself, sustainably in the mountains for extended periods of time, and by that I do not mean days or weeks, I mean months and months at a time without tent or shelter, or only a tarp to protect from rain.  He has travelled the World on foot and bicycle.  He has studied breath work for decades, and has also pursued Qi Gong and martial arts for many years. There’s a quiet intensity and strong aura that surrounds this man when you are in his presence. Though English is not his native language, he speaks it with intention, intensity and with great purpose.

I consider him to be a member of my closest council when I need urgent advice or want to deepen my practice, and I uphold his opinion and beliefs on things with great regard.  He has a great wisdom that seems to transcend what most of us consider to be common sense or traditional knowledge.  Sometimes a sentence or two from Olaf can completely revitalize the way you see your relationships with the opposite sex or same sex, your own life, or what you think is important to you. I have been close friends with Olaf for over eight years now and we have even had the opportunity to live together which has provided a platform for some of the more in depth conversations and exercises of my life.

Olaf his been a vegetarian, a vegan, a raw foodist and I’d damn near say a “BREATHairian” – someone who sustains himself on the planets sunlight and oxygen only!   I’ve seen him with my own eyes maintain a large body mass and health eating only 1 avocado and drinking purified water each day.  Amidst all this Olaf manages to be balanced. He dances, he plays, and he’s got a fantastic wife and new infant who he is already instilling universal wisdom in and vice versa.

Olaf is also responsible for bringing the Iceman to Los Angeles and hosting workshops on how to submerge yourself in freezing cold water safely and effectively. You can read about the iceman here.  I have personally been to countless breathing workshops of his and have always left with a new love and appreciation of my body, the universe and a renewed ability for just how much pleasure and well being my body can experience.

Olaf is someone I trust. 

Olaf is in town for a couple of weeks and staying in Topanga (Los Angeles Area near Malibu and the Valley) and is offering healing sessions, bodywork sessions, breathing sessions, or all-around tips and tricks for how to connect more with nature and just deepen your spiritual connection.  He currently works at a luxurious rehabilitation center in Malibu as and healer.

Olaf will also hold a workshop on “Manifesting your goals Quickly” in Venice on September 8th from 2-5 PM.

To work with Olaf runs $150 an hour, and he is on limited schedule while he is here, but if you reference this Tari TV post when you book can train with him for 1 to 2 hours for only $125 an hour.

You can reach Olaf by phone at (310) 447-8344
Or you can contact him via email at potentizinglife@gmail.com

Aveda… And my hair

Send to a friend

IMG_4431

It’s strange that over the past fifteen years only three people have ever cut my hair.  I’m not sure I’ve had that kind of relationship with anyone else. Back in my UCSB days when a man named Phillip took my hair from my shoulders to a rather amazing Russell Crowe Gladiator look, he must of somehow convinced me that his “precision haircuts,”  and mastery over hair couldn’t be found anywhere else. Oh the hype.  Interestingly, my Dad used to be a hairstylist in the 70′s and 80′s in Beverly Hills.  He often created hairdos for celebrities and cut my hair for the better part of my adolescent years.

Fast forward a decade and every so often I would stray to someone new, have a mortifying experience, and cower back to my old stylist- even if they were an hour away.  Over the past five years I’ve softened my ridiculous beliefs that there must only be a tiny handful of people who could cut my hair in the world, but because a couple of them we’re still geographically close to me, I’ve always just gone back to the classics.  At the beginning of 2013  I said that’s it. So much in the universe is changing so fast these days and so easily that I am rewriting my beliefs and my actions on anything that doesn’t have a clean energetic to it. I’m cleaning up my feelings on this subject.  Two months ago it was time to get my haircut somewhere else.

With the vast array of passions I engage in, Living in Studio City has been all about convenience.  I’ve managed to figure out a way to have most of the things that I want appear at my doorstep or close to it and I love that. Amazon prime, private dance classes, teaching Acro out of the house etc. I decided I needed to do the same with getting a haircut. No more driving to Santa Monica. My usual guy was getting crabbier and crabbier as he got older and though he’s damn good, I wasn’t appreciating the feeling I had when visiting him.

I remembered there was an Aveda Salon (Experience) right down the street from my house by Laurel Canyon. I’ve probably used Aveda products for the last 13 years and, despite their five star price tag, I have always loved them. Scent and performance are everything and they continuously outdid themselves in both those arenas. So all of this buildup to say, I call Kriza Aveda on Ventura Blvd, and ask if there might be someone there capable of doing a mans haircut.  Imagine that. There was, and so I quickly setup an appointment with a man named Ericmo. What follows has been THE best salon / haircutting experience I have ever had to date.

You walk in and the place is gorgeous, like many Aveda or Aveda Concept salons are. Product abound, alternative stylists, friendly faces, product specialists etc. I was greeted with Aveda tea, invited to sit, and within two minutes, Ericmo, a young Asian guy with wildly blown dry hair and shaved sides dressed in black greeted me. As a guy, I am expecting shampoo and a cut. Oh no no. I was sat down inthe chair and asked to pick my favorite scent of three botanical oils. I then received a 3 minute scalp massage and shoulder massage with those oils which instantly put me at ease. Then we went back to wash my hair. Feet up and laying back I got another scalp massage while being shampooed, and then while Aveda Conditioner was left in my hair, I was given… a facial!

First a hot towel was placed over my face with room for my nose and mouth to breathe, then Aveda cleanser, toner moisturizer… I was so relaxed I couldn’t believe it. Then a curvaceous blonde looked over at me a couple times and finally walked up to me and took my hand and started massaging it!  She did the other and then continued on with her work. By the time I sat back in my chair I was so relaxed and in such a positive mood, only good things could have unfolded.

And they did. Ericmo took no less than an hour- and you all know how short my hair is- meticulously finding a way to create style, elegance and sharpness with my hair.  By the time he was all done I could not be happier and the price? Only $5-10 more than I have paid for a hair cut in the last 15 years!  $50!  I was in. I knew I had to blog about it and share my experience. I will probably post this on Yelp as well.

So, if you’re in Studio City, or any place near by, Sherman Oaks or Woodland Hills, I would STRONGLY encourage you to have an Aveda experience for yourself. Oh one last thing. Aveda products never go on sale. They have a little points thing they do when you buy product… $10 to sign up and you get all sorts of free stuff and points and what not. I wasn’t going to do it at first until she said, oh and by the way it includes a 25 minute scalp treatment or facial. I was sold.
