On Today’s episode, Hollywood-raised, Stanford University graduate, Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati – moved to India after her life here just became too much – she was sexually abused by her biological father and that manifested into an addictive eating disorder. In the summer of 1996, she took a transformative trip to India – she arrived only as a traveler but then felt compelled to stay. This same woman – 25 years later, is now a world renowned spiritual leader, sharing the stage with the Dalai Lama and Deepak Chopra, among many and welcomes celebrities and everyday folks, seekers to her Ashram. She is an inspiration with devotees all over the world as she lives a life of Seva, a Vegan, a holistic thinker . . . 

Sadhvi explains her personal road from darkness, fear and pain to freedom, joy and peace as she offers lessons for us all in her just released memoir, HOLLYWOOD TO THE HIMALAYAS: A Journey of Healing and Transformation.
