With a powerful message sure to challenge overachievers, Trinity Spiritual Center will host renowned Hindu writer, speaker, and social activist Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati at an in-person and livestream event on Thursday, September 9th at 7:00 p.m. in Southport. This special event is free and open to all with advance registration.
Sadhvi is the author of the just-published, best-selling memoir, “Hollywood to the Himalayas: A Journey of Healing and Transformation”—the story of “a reluctant spiritual seeker who finds much more than she bargained for when she travels to India.” Deepak Chopra, world-renowned pioneer of alternative medicine, praises Sadhvi for her “inspiring wisdom [that] illuminates the path to healing, happiness, and inner peace.” Dr. Jane Goodall describes Sadhvi’s journey as “a river of love, compelling in its authenticity and unflinching honesty.”
A highly-revered spiritual leader whose public appearances attract thousands in India, Sadhvi will discuss the presence of Grace, and how it unexpectedly entered and changed her life. She will explore the unusual series of events that led her out of her upper-middle-class American life into her spiritual awakening on the banks of the Ganga in India.
A data-driven social scientist who grew up among Hollywood’s elite, Sadhvi graduated from Stanford University, and was finishing up her Ph.D. in psychology with no interest in spiritual pursuits when she arrived with her husband in Rishikesh and was overwhelmed by a direct encounter with the divine.
This experience was followed by a series of awakenings that fundamentally altered the trajectory of her life.
In addition to her service as a spiritual leader, Sadhvi also leads myriad humanitarian programs worldwide. She is Secretary-General of Global Interfaith WASH Alliance, the world’s first alliance of religious leaders for Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene, launched by UNICEF in 2013; the President of Divine Shakti Foundation, a charitable organization bringing education and empowerment to women and children; and Director of the world-famous International Yoga Festival.
The presentation is open to all. No affiliation with the church required, and while there is no charge for the participation in this event, registration is required (details are below). Copies of Sadhvi’s memoir Hollywood to the Himalayas will be available for a suggested donation of $30 or more to the Divine Shakti Foundation. An author signing will follow the event.
