Neem Karoli Baba

Neem Karoli Baba came to Monica through a mystical moment with Ram Dass, and this inner relationship has filled her life with grace ever since. His message is what informs her life and teaching, “Love everyone. Serve everyone. Remember God.”


Welcome to the path of the heart. Believe it or not, to be loved unconditionally and to begin to become that love can be a reality. This path of love doesn’t go anywhere. It just brings you more here, into the present moment, into the reality of who you already are. This path takes you out of your mind and into your heart.

~Ram Dass
