"The Power is Practice. Practice is the Path. The Path is Love!" ~ mmd
I am Monica Mesa Dasi, a Buddhist bhakti yogini. I’ve been given the name by my Lama Tsultrim Allione; Tara of Great Bliss. I am a daughter of the Universe, my beloved Colombian parents, and Gurus Neem Karoli Baba & Amma. I am a mother of three amazing warrior sons, one of whom passed away from suicide. I am a survivor of drama, trauma, and tragedy.
I am a spiritual healer, a channeler, an alchemist who has learned that miracles are possible and life is magic. I am an earth activist, I believe in taking a stand for our earth mother and climate change. I believe that black lives matter, in social justice, racial justice, and now is the time to come together as One.
I am a entrepreneur business coach for spiritually-based Yogini‘s on a mission. I believe in empowering young girls and women, as well as the importance of supporting boys and men in reversing the 80% suicide epidemic amongst them. I am a writer, a poet, a mystic you can’t put in any boxes so don’t even think about it because I might transform into a butterfly before your very eyes.
I am a global citizen on this extraordinary planet, I stand for unity in consciousness, and I believe that we all need to come together NOW. I don’t believe the world is falling apart, I believe we are all waking up! I believe that self love and sacred daily practice is the key to becoming our higher selves and embodying the Divine so we can serve our gifts in the world and feel the inherent joy that is this precious human life.
I believe in LOVE. I believe it’s the doorway, the portal and the key, that I am love and you are love and we are here to love ourselves and each other. Passionately and Compassionately.
If our paths have crossed we are most likely karmically connected and I wanna look in your eyes.
I am a surfer girl mountain mermaid ageless goddess in her 50’s and I am here to rock. I bring all of who I am to everything, to all my offerings, and I am here to help YOU rock, heal, and live your dreams.
"Love yourself and you love the world!"
My path in yoga began over 30 years ago with roots in Iyengar and flowed into Prana Vinyasa, the yoga of my heart. I am honored to have been teaching for over 25 years, facilitated yoga teacher trainings in Shiva Rea's global school, and love teaching retreats, festivals, and workshops globally.
One of my greatest heart projects was founding Yoga for the Peaceful studio in Crested Butte, Colorado, which also branded in several locations.
My deep love for empowering yoga teachers inspired me to develop my beloved Soul on Fire YoginiPreneurs Mentorship Group, designed to support women in serving their gifts, having more impact in the world, and creating an abundant income for themselves!
I believe the power of yoga can heal us all and heal the planet!
Shiva Rea is Monica’s Maha teacher, who not only gave her the practice of her soul, but also led her to her Gurus, Neem Karoli Baba, Amma, and her Lama!
Lama Tsultrim Allione is Monica’s Vajrayana Buddhist teacher, who has been her wise guide on buddhist teachings with much warmth, patience and depth.
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.”
