ahimsamaven is alive.

So. About me.

My name is Sara aka Ahimsamaven – you can call me Sx3 or AH for short. Pookie Pie if you know me well enough.I grew up when Kevin Smith movies were all the rage, porno mags were still passed surreptitiously around my group of friends like coveted gold and video games were moving from 64 bit pixellated madness to the ooey goodness of the modern era. In other words I cut my teeth on sarcasm, sex and automation and it influenced my modern day persona…a lot. My childhood was a stewpot of sarcastic one liners and technological wizardry.

I was the queen of many of these things. I lived a solid Bill Hicks / Hunter S. Thompson Cpt. Shepard style existence for a long while.Somewhere in my mid twenties I realized that I was hugely disconnected from the world as well as from myself and began to look for what tapped me into the universe and made me..me.

Call it a crisis of self.

I call it discovering my gypsy-ness, the part of me that would much rather climb trees and dance in fields of flowers then be a cog of the corporate world. Looking at this part of myself brought me to the practice of yoga and meditation and has permeated other areas of my life.

The process of learning who I really am (ongoing always) has been studded with flashes of emotional and mental enlightenment at its best and has been bone jarringly difficult at it’s worst. Always there is humor.

I have learned…about 1 billionth of a percent of ” who I am” but it has been worthwhile and beautiful and continues to be. Seeing myself in the journey was the first step. Moving from the head to the heart is the rest of it…I plan on chasing it’s tail for the rest of my life. I might be hung over and half naked doing it..but fuck it…at least I’m alive, awake and willing to try.

My blog is about what I love:

I love to teach.

I love to read.

I love to write.

I love to wax philosophical and drink red wine.

I love music – all kinds.

I really love to run and practice asana and meditate roll around in the grass with my puppy and kitties.

I love lamp.

I teach yoga to those enlightened few that want to hear my message. I invite you to join us: axismundiyoga.com

    Pleasure to meet you

  2. I just read your pets post and wanted to comment about how great it was… but then I read the ones before that and I also wanted to comment on all of THEM because they’re all great too. I thought it might look a bit crazypants if I comment on everything you’ve ever written though, so instead I’m commenting here to say that I love your writing πŸ™‚
