Shiva Rose Talks On Boundless Confidence
Shiva Rose Interview
The Moment: Hi! Can you introduce yourself?
Shiva Rose: I’m Shiva Rose, we just had a tea ceremony which is an extension of the tea group that I’m a part of, Global Tea Hut. I have a blog called The Local Rose and a skincare line called Shiva Rose. They kind of dance with each other.
This is a tea house that I had put up when I felt the call of tea. I’ve had it maybe a little over a year. It’s a great way to come down and connect to nature and with the tea. The whole idea of tea is to connect us with the plant medicine and the plant world and the earth. That’s what our tea teacher does. He tries to simplify tea so we can really experience nature through it.
The Moment: What are your thoughts on the nature-tea connection?
Shiva Rose: People have been drinking tea for thousands of thousands of years, especially in the East. The tea is like a medicine. Especially the tea that we drink in our group, it isn’t typical tea. It’s called living tea because it hasn’t been altered in any way. It’s the true beauty of the tee trees. It’s an adaptogen. It works on you wherever you need it. That’s the beauty of this tree.
I started practicing tea a few years ago through my sister and our teacher. The teahouse came into being a year and a half ago because I realized tea wasn’t just a temporary situation, it was something I wanted to devote my life to, so I committed to the tea house.
The Moment: How does this practice play in with other foods you eat and your skincare line?
Shiva Rose: We can all make a difference with our daily life. I feel like people are yearning to make changes and it comes down to changing the way you eat and the products you use. Those things are going to make differences in the world.
Find a farmers market near you, they’re all over the country now, not just in New York or LA. Research where there’s organic produce, research the products and what you’re putting on your skin. There’ s a direct correlation. Now they’re talking about our microbiome in our stomach is similar to the microbiome on our skin. Women my age do so many peels and lasers and scrubs. They’re taking away the microbiome of the skin. I’ve intuitively always felt like that wasn’t a good idea and now they’re finding out that it’s true. It’s like destroying your gut. Stripping away all of the good bacteria. I think it’s crucial that a lot of my products are ayurvedic, rooted in auyerveda, and a lot of the things I eat are rooted in that. It’s all about feeding the microbiome.
The Moment: How can we learn more about tea ceremonies?
Shiva Rose: I would go to GlobalTeaHut.com or Living Tea. Those two sites are good resources. It’s basically a meditation, just being in the moment and clearing your mind to be present with the water and the fire and the leaf and the person and the incense. It’s about being in the moment and it reveals itself as you do it.
The Moment: We’d love to hear about your intrigue for roses.
Shiva Rose: I was named after my grandmother Rose. She instilled the love of roses in me when I was young. She knew them all by name and grew them and she would wear roses. I got acquainted that way. Being half Iranian, I grew up in Iran where roses are a big part of the culture. They have rosewater in the deserts and the foods and cookies. A lot of the houses used to be built around rose gardens. It’s been a part of my life. When I started practicing Kundalini, the idea came for a skincare line and I’d already been making rose face oil for myself, so I thought that would be the start. It all came that way.
The Moment: Tell us about those!
Shiva Rose: Yoni eggs are really magical because they’re an ancient Chinese tradition. Concubines used to use them in China to learn how to pleasure the emperor, but they also did it because they learned it gave them certain attributes and power. By putting in a gem, in your yoni, which is your sacred space, they realized you’re using that space to activate your power and your desires and sexuality. We realize now it has so many other benefits too. It can help with hormones or balance your moods. There are exercises you do so that’s a whole rabbit hole I’ve been going down. But like I said, you have to go deeper and deeper. Sometimes I think, “Oh my god, how are we going to go deeper than this!” But there’s always deeper.
The Moment: How do you learn about these things?
Shiva Rose: I seek them out. It’s funny, I did an article for Goop on Yoni eggs and I had backlash from conservative doctors who said yoni eggs cause toxic shock which is not true because no one in 5,000 years has ever gotten toxic shock from a yoni egg. They get them from tampons that are not organic and made with horrible fibers. I had all of these incredible women reach out to me and I got to meet some Yoni experts. There’s always a silver lining to every cloud.
The Moment: You talked about wanting to heal yourself from that divorce and getting out the toxins. Did you have a lot of inspiration or resources to pull from?
Shiva Rose: Not really. I was diagnosed with autoimmune conditions when I was 26, so I always learned to research. Those days, it was before the internet, so I would have to go to Santa Monica Homeopathic pharmacy and I would just have to read books and try to find things that work or would help. It was a rough road. Now people are very lucky because the information is all out there. When I was diagnosed at 26, there was no information. Now I know it was my diet and past trauma. Now I can see what it was. It’s inspiring to see a shift in consciousness now.
The Moment: What’s a typical day in the life?
Shiva Rose: I get up early and I practice a small Kundalini set and I make my tea. Then I get my daughter ready for school and the animals fed and then I’ll start working. If I have more time, I’ll do a full Kundalini set or take a walk in the canyons or make a full breakfast. But if I’m on the run, it’s a smoothie, tea, chia seed pudding, or something like that.
The Moment: Do you exercise beyond Kundalini?
Shiva Rose: It’s hard to fit everything in. Kundalini’s more meditation. I enjoy hiking in the canyon with my dog, so I’ll try to do that a couple times a week, even if it’s short. It’s so grounding and I get my best ideas when I’m out there in nature.
The Moment: Why do you think that is?
Shiva Rose: We are away from all the harmful electro magnetic energies like phones and computers, which we rely on. But just being quiet you can hear your unconscious become conscious I guess. Being grounded and surrounded by the plants and energy of the trees is wonderful too.
The Moment: You mentioned that you started growing your own food. Do you still do that?
Shiva Rose: Yes! I grow kale and carrots and beets and herbs and things like that. I love to cook with the foods that I grow or food from the farmers market.
