Self Published Author
Dhavita is a writer. Her debut book of poetry, Purification, was born out of Dhavita's decision to lean into her practice of meditation while wading through the dark waters of postpartum depression. Since finding herself by journeying inward, Dhavita has become passionate about helping others connect with themselves and discover their soul expression.
Dhavita's book is available for sale worldwide on Amazon and she will soon be offering meditation guidance both online and in person. www.dhavita.com
The written word is so powerful. It is both a release of that which no longer serves us and a declaration of what we wish to bring into creation. In Dhavita's session, she will guide you through an experience to connect deeply with your higher self, opening you up to your infinite creativity. Be prepared to be surprised as you find yourself write the words your higher self longs for you to read. You will leave this experience with a written expression of your soul. This may look like a poem, personal mantra, or prayer.
