ABOUT PARVATI.ORG

In the fall of 2010, Parvati postponed a planned music tour in Japan and instead traveled to the North Pole, where she became the northernmost musical performer ever, to help raise awareness of the melting polar ice. This journey was supported by sponsors in the wellness and electronic industries, and supported additionally by fans who were moved by her initiative.

In response to her life-changing trip to the Arctic, Parvati co-founded Parvati.org. The not-for-profit is dedicated to stopping seismic testing and declaring MAPS: the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, so that the ocean north of the Arctic Circle is free from all commercial exploitation.

MORE INFO
MAPS acknowledges and will realize the following.
Our Arctic Ocean must be protected from:
– Commercial exploitation
– Natural resource exploitation
– Seismic testing
– Fracking
– Military activity
– Through shipping traffic

Pursuing and extracting of fossil fuels will lead to devastating climate change ramifications, and affect every single one of us. Protecting the vulnerable Arctic ecosystem is non-negotiable for the health and survival of all life. By signing this petition, I join the chorus of voices from all over the world, calling for the urgent enactment of the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary.

ACTS OF SERVICE

Spring and summer 2015: Parvati led a delegation of parvati.org staff to participate in Climate Reality Leadership trainings with former US Vice President Al Gore. In conjunction with the Climate Reality Day of Action in Toronto, Canada, Parvati organized a free music and yoga event to mobilize her fan network to support the work of Climate Reality. Parvati and parvati.org continue to carry out regular acts of climate reality leadership.

Fall 2015: Parvati.org took the unprecedented step of creating an international treaty for the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary in six official UN langages and soliciting signatures from heads of government of 200 countries worldwide.

December 2015: Parvati.org sent its Director of Strategic Initiatives with the treaty to Paris for COP21. When the MAPS Treaty gets 99 signatures, it will come into effect.

A MAPS music festival is being planned for 2017.

Day-of-Action

WHY WATER MATTERS

Our bodies are mostly made of water – as much as 50-78% depending on age and sex. Similarly, 71% of the Earth’s surface is water, 96.5% of which is ocean water. When the health of our oceans is at risk, every aspect of humanity is affected.

The water on our planet is under attack from a number of sources, such as pollution, exploitation and global warming. If we were to imagine the ocean as a physical body, it would be as though it were experiencing a virus, on top of a virus, on top of a bacterial infection.

As the polar ice caps melt, sea levels and ocean temperatures rise, heating up the planet. Heated waters mean ecosystems are harmed, animals die and natural disasters such as hurricanes increase. Since three-quarters of the world’s megacities sit on coastlines, a rising sea level threatens the way of life for nearly half of the world’s population.

STOP SEISMIC TESTING

130 db: Sound painful to the human ear
140 db: Jet engine at close range
160 db (average): Whale communication
185 dB: Offshore oil drill rig
198 dB: Container ship
250 dB: Lightning strike on water’s surface
255 dB: Seismic testing

The Arctic is one of the planet’s most fragile ecosystems. It has been profoundly affected by climate change with permafrost almost gone and the polar ice disappearing, leaving it susceptible to increased seismic testing and drilling for oil and gas.

Petroleum companies deploy airguns to search for oil and gas in the ocean bed by generating continuous and intense sound vibrations that can reach up to 250 dB, much louder than a jet engine. Marine research shows that seismic testing harms whales, dolphins, porpoises and groundfish by causing behavioural changes, reproductive problems, and even death.

Further, oil spills around the planet illustrate that adequate measures do not now exist to detect or contain their damage even in easily accessible settings. Given the extreme and remote conditions of attempting to extract oil from the Arctic Ocean, oil spills and chronic degradation are all but guaranteed. If Arctic oil is exploited, billions of tons of carbon stand to be released into the global atmosphere, further accelerating the climatic warming that is so disastrous for the Arctic. To stabilize the climate, these hydrocarbon reserves need to stay where they are: deep under the Arctic ocean floor. Arctic oil exploration is not a safe, sustainable or viable option and would have a catastrophic, long-term impact on the entire Arctic ecosystem.

SEISMIC TESTING PETITIONS

COME CLEAN ABOUT SEISMIC TESTING

Seismic testing is expensive, and is financed by oil companies that stand to profit from knowing where to drill. The areas to be blasted by airguns louder than a jet engine include key habitats for whales. Additional damage caused by drilling for oil and gas includes the release of billions of tons of carbon into the atmosphere, as well as oil spills under frozen Arctic ice.

Consumers have the right to know if their dollars are going to a business that supports seismic testing or oil exploitation in the Arctic. Let’s call on the Norwegian companies (TGS, PGS and MKI) to publicly disclose their big oil financial backers, and big oil companies to disclose their plans to drill along Canada’s fragile Arctic coast. Together, we will deliver the message that we will no longer allow oil interests carte blanche to harm the environment.

OIL DOESN’T ELECT GOVERNMENT. PEOPLE DO

Oil business shouldn’t hold more sway over our decision-makers than the Canadian electorate. We call on Canada’s federal government to reveal to the Canadian public the extent of its knowledge about which oil companies are backing seismic testing, and their plans for drilling in Canada’s pristine Arctic waters. Citizens have the right to hold government accountable for the decisions it makes behind closed doors with our tax dollars.The Canadian government must compel oil companies and seismic testing companies to declare any pre-funding relationships for seismic testing they wish to conduct in Canadian waters, and make that information publicly available.

WHY YOGA IN THE NIGHTCLUB

I am often asked what inspired me to bring yogic expression into the club scene. I answer easily. Yoga In the Nightclub is a natural expression of who I am as a musical artist and dedicated yogini. Yoga is not a physical practice but a way of life. It is about learning to be present in all one does, to see the divine here, now, in this moment. As such, yoga is everywhere. It is about feeling connected to something much greater than our limited ego or will. It is about being in service to life, feeling interconnected to that very life force. Yoga In The Nightclub is a celebration of life and a reminder that we can find awakened presence everywhere.

Yoga in the West is mostly known as a series of bendy physical exercises. Yet there is much more to it than fitness. Yoga’s systematic breath and body exercises, designed to clear the subtle channels in our energy system, prepare us for meditation, through which we may experience a life inspired by our interconnected, multidimensional true nature. Our body, that once was seen as “mine”, is no longer our identity, but a gift on loan from the divine. We care for it, but we are not attached to it. The practice of yoga offers us the opportunity to experience the transmutation of matter into pure light, embody the multidimensional and rest in the eternal.

WE ARE ALL CONNECTED

Hatha yoga, the physical practice of yoga, is just one of many aspects of yoga, which range from selfless service to astrology and prayer. The Sanskrit word “yoga” most simply translates to “union”, implying that the practice of any yoga will bring together our perceived sense of separateness. As a whole, yoga is an ancient science of life. It is a practical method of shedding excess and bringing us back from the self-delusion of separation from the divine so that we may realize our inherent interconnection to and ultimate oneness with it.

As we begin to understand that yoga is everywhere, we come to see how we are all connected in vast ways far beyond the limitations of our personal will and ego. What I do affects you, and vice versa. We are one earth family. At the heart of it all, we share the same heartbeat. Breathe to be. We are one.

AWAKENED LIVING

When we are open, life blossoms, just as a flower opens to welcome the morning sun.  We see that the sun, though it is millions of light years away, has a tender yet powerful relationship with the flower, as do the rain and the clouds. From this perspective we see that we are part of the whole. Life is a symphonic masterpiece with which, when we are open, we are completely resonant.

As we come to understand our oneness, we can revel in it with wonder and joy. We can consider in awe how immense it all is. We can let go of the idea that an illusory, isolated sense of self could possibly be in control, and open to an exquisite unfolding of life in absolute perfection. Our actions become not about “me” but about the whole. Each moment is integrated within the whole. No one decision is separate.

When we begin to see that each decision we make affects not just ourselves but everyone and everything on the planet, we act with more compassion. When we have more compassion, we realize the impact of our actions and we naturally want less and practice more kindness. As stewards of the Earth, we each are called to learn to live in harmony with ourselves, each other and our planet. We all breathe the same air and live on the same living organism, our planet. Varied in race and creed, we are all one family, children of the same mother, the planet Earth.

THE OPPORTUNITY FOR GRACE

In each moment, there is infinite grace. By becoming more conscious as we practice yoga on the mat, at work, at play or in the nightclub, we let go of the unnecessary and develop greater internal spaciousness which blooms throughout our lives. In this space new life and possibilities arise.

As we rest our awareness on the simple purity and grace of the breath, we realize - we are alive! We let go of wanting things from the future and the past and open to what is here and now. We feel as vast as the sky and rooted in the richness of this moment.

When we “breathe to be”, we understand our interconnection. We see that we are not the doers but a part of the whole, the same energy that is in the flowers and in the stars. We know that our essence is divine - from which we have come, to which we return.
