Today we talk to Swami Yogamani who is a wedding celebrant and loyal friend of Together Journal. So many people know Swami in this industry, and so many of the couples we have featured in the magazine and online have been married by her. Swami has a deep spiritual connection and she explains how she is accepting recent events and our new way of life. As we start day one of our lockdown here in New Zealand Swami’s words and feelings about how we can lean into this period and accept it with an open heart are welcomed.Read More
