Embrace has updated the website and have put 3 videos of Dhaya Mesrobian from France
demonstrating Thai Buddhist Yoga, Thai Yoga Massage (gentle stretching) and Chinese Tai Chi
Yoga in locations from Ladakh, India to Temples in Thailand and an empty beach in Brazil. Traditional
massage in Eastern disciplines is not merely for enjoyment, but for healing and for the awakening of
insight through movement and the releasing of energy from specific body points.
Dhaya spent many years at the shrine of the Hindu Siddha Saint Ramalinga in South, India where he
began practices that assist in transcending the physical body at the time of death by Jyoti Moksha or
what is commonly known in the Tibetan Dzokchen tradition as going into the “rainbow body.” The
videos your will see on this site are visually beautiful. They are titled in French. However, it is easy to
view and understand them even without speaking French. Dhaya travels the world teaching and
living simply. The last we spoke to him, he was in China giving classes. Please, enjoy.

The Embrace Editors have added a new Book Tour - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA with lots of photos
in this website. This is an easy flat land walking tour, which is accessible almost entirely by
wheelchair, except when there is snow. This tour passes fine art and art galleries, unique
architecture, a park and plenty of benches to rest. The article also highlights a few of the fine
coffee/tea houses which can be found every few blocks. (Some of the bookstores have cafes inside
of them.) The bookstores range from ALLA which specializes in all Spanish language books from all
over the Spanish speaking world to TRAVEL BUG which carries only travel and tour books guiding
people to every country on earth. It also stocks maps. Travel Bug (like a number of other bookstores)
has a café inside their store and can print out custom topographical maps for hikers.
