Welcome to The Jai Dev Show
If you could ask some of the world’s brightest minds and biggest hearts any question… what would it be?
That very question is the essence of our newest adventure into the exploration of human consciousness… The Jai Dev Show. In this semi-weekly podcast, I’ll be talking to some of the most inspiring people I’ve met throughout my years of traveling and teaching around the world.
They are people who have concentrated their life-force. They have pointed the energy of their life into a single direction to create something beautiful and uplifting. They are the artists of life, creating and sharing the magic of their craft with their world.
I won’t just be talking to yogis or spiritual teachers. I’ve interviewed musicians, entrepreneurs, healers, and artists of all kinds. These are the people I want to talk to, the conversations that I want to have with the people that truly inspire me. These conversations go deep into the essence of life and uncover the truths of being human that every single person can relate to.
