The first time I was introduced to the word SEVA I was visiting an ashram in 2008. My friend had taken me there to get a hug from his guru, which seemed simple enough to me. It turned out I was there to get more than a hug. I was there to learn about selfless service.

Do you remember the first time you heard the word Chakra? Maybe you're reading it for the first time right now. Despite living in Asheville, NC (let's face it … the complementary medicine capital of the East Coast) and learning a lot about alternative healing, I'll never forget the first time I heard it! I had fractured my hip in a horse riding accident and a friend finally talked me into trying acupuncture after months of pain. I have a huge fear of needles (as evidenced by my lack of tattoos and piercings), so this was huge!
