Women's Power to Heal - Maya Tiwari
Mother Maya is an extraordinary spiritual teacher and a profound orator, gifted with the wondrous power of truth—lauded by Bawa Jain, Secretary General of the UN Millennium Peace Summit, as a “compassionate Mother whose ancient wisdom can be applied to heal present world crises.” A living testament to the healing efficacy of her teachings, Mother Maya (Maya Tiwari) freed herself from “terminal” ovarian cancer at the age of 23. More than 25 years later—having been recognized by the Parliament of the World’s Religions for her outstanding contribution to humanity—she shares the healing wisdom that literally saved her life – an inspired education currently in practice by thousands of people around the world.
Mother Maya’s unique journey as a Spiritual Mother renders her accessible to all people and especially to the underserved in the world. Her simple demeanor transcends social, cultural, and religious boundaries. She discards outdated clichés about human spirituality while being stoic to her ancestral roots. With a quarter century worth of health, humanitarian education and wellness services to her accomplishment, Mother Maya is the founder of the Mother Om Mission, the Wise Earth School—the first school for ayurveda in North America, established in 1981, and the Living Ahimsa Foundation. In Living Ahimsa World Tour 2009-2012, Mother Maya introduces the extraordinary practice of The Vow of Ahimsa already taken by more than 147,000 participants around the world for the imperative awakening of personal awareness and global consciousness. She was a pre-eminent presenter at numerous world conferences such as the Parliament of the World’s Religious Leaders, Melbourne, Australia, and December 2009 where she appeared alongside the Dalai Lama; the Global Peace Initiative of Women’s Spiritual Leaders, Geneva, Switzerland and the UN Millennium Peace Summit, New York, 2000. Under the nom de plume Maya Tiwari, she is the best-selling author of Women’s Power to Heal through Inner Medicine; Ayurveda- a Life of Balance; Ayurveda- Secrets of Healing; The Path of Practice and her newest releases scheduled for March 2011, Living Ahimsa Diet: Nourishing Love & Life and Love! A Daily Oracle for Healing.
Abstract: By calling on ayurveda’s ancient healing wisdom and practices, world renowned expert and spiritual teacher, Mother Maya, spreads a revolutionary idea: that once women reconnect with their female nature they can heal themselves, as well as their children and their community. Modern women are faced with unprecedented levels of stress, fatigue, and illness, as well as a profound disconnection from their inherent gift of love, creativity and femininity. In this extraordinary keynote, Mother illuminates forgotten wisdom of the ancient rishis; that women have absolute power within themselves to heal. By reconnecting to their innate shakti energy and aligning with lunar, solar and seasonal rhythms we recapture our feminine nature of love, creativity and nurturance. Women of all ages, backgrounds, and cultures can transform disease and despair into health and inner harmony. This power-packed keynote address enlivened by inspiring stories from Mother’s quarter-century long work demonstrates how women across cultural barriers have been utilizing ayurveda practices to renew their health, reconnect with their feminine nature, and ultimately, reclaim their innate power to heal- without medicine!
