Returned from the North Pole

I returned from the North Pole journey a couple of days ago. The trip was beyond... a success at many levels. I feel like angels were carrying us. Certainly, I was not “the doer”.

I am in some sort of state of culture shock. There is so much to integrate and process. This was huge. I am also crazy tired as each moment prior to the trip and while away was action packed. We met Inuit elders, healers, hunters, politicians. I spoke at the council meeting in the Nunavut capital Iqaluit about my musical project and giving the Earth a voice. I sang at the North Pole and did three other shows, showcasing a new song I wrote just before the trip. I exchanged music with Inuit throat singers and traditional drummers. I facilitated healing work at the North Pole and in two other Arctic locations. We saw absolutely magical land and wild, prehistoric animals and ancient Inuit sites. When I sit still, I can still feel my body floating from the many small airplane rides, like I am still somehow traveling. It is time now for me to re-juice for the next leg of this journey...

The message we carry back from everyone we met was unanimously the same: please tell the South that the ice is melting, the animals are fewer and we are suffering. I am left with a heavy heart, an ache in my soul seeing even more clearly and palpably the effect of our pollution and our cultural disconnect from the Earth. I feel charged with an even stronger connection to an immense, universal force that can help each one of us wake up, so that we may join together as one Earth family and create positive environmental change to benefit all.

As I integrate the experience over the coming weeks, I will be posting my journals and video blogs from my journey. I will also be working on editing the video footage captured, with hopefully enough to create a video documentary. I also have footage to create music videos of the songs I sang at the top of the world. So please stay tuned… much more coming…

Thank you for your continued support. I felt very connected to all while I was traveling. Though it was my body that was traveling, I felt we were all there together.

We are all Her children.
In service,


  1. Om Namah Shivaya,

    It's good to hear from you again. I'm awed by the magnitude of the trip, and I really look forward to the continued unfolding of all that took place in your journey.

    I'm curious about seeing prehistoric animals! Care to elucidate?

    Jai Ma,

  2. I look forward to seeing the video footage in the coming weeks Parvati. It's amazing that the message is consistent amongst all the people you met during your journey. This is a real wake up sign for us!

  3. It has been an incredible experience (a gift really) to accompany you and Rishi to the North Pole. I too am left with a heavy heart, "seeing even more clearly and palpably the effect of our pollution and our cultural disconnect from the Earth." I feel saddened by the amount of denial and resistance I feel from people when I tell them about the effects of our unconscious actions. Today I tweeted that I need (and want) to BE the change I want to see in the world. My wish is what you so eloquently write: "that we may join together as one Earth family and create positive environmental change to benefit all." May the love that I feel for Nature (which for me is so palpable when I am with my horses or walk through the forest) be shared by all. May we all feel connected through the love we share for the Planet (Nature) which lovingly sustains us all.

  4. Om Namah Shivaya. Dear Parvati. Welcome back to Toronto. I am still in awe that this journey unfolded. That is thanks to your faith and dedication to spreading the message of consciousness on the planet.

    I am deeply moved by what you share, as I know I am among the many who need to wake up. And hearing about this trip is definitely helping me to open my eyes.

    Many thanks. I look forward to hearing and seeing more.

    Jai Ma!

  5. I just read this blog and feel very moved to be able to help deliver a message of such importance. We have to stop polluting. So much of what we dump into the oceans and lakes ends up in the Arctic. We have brothers and sisters who have to live with the mess we create.

  6. I'm glad you are back safe and sound. I'm sure your journey changed you on many levels. I've been changed watching this adventure from afar through your blogs and video journal. Thank you for taking on this challenge and the work you do.

  7. What a unique initiative you've undertaken to raise awareness about the health of our planet! When will we be able to see footage from your trip? Are you going to post it here?

  8. Parvati, thank you for being a beacon of light! I am sad that the planet is sick because of us humans!
