This video was filmed and edited by BWF board member Renea Roberts at last year’s “Shave for Cancer” event where I shaved my head to commemorate my five years of living with cancer and in solidarity to all people living with cancer, regardless of their treatment path. Below is the prayer I chant as our Board Director and my dear childhood friend, Caroline Campbell shaves my head. As we approach my sixth year of living with cancer, it remains a powerful call to healing for so many.
Om trayambakam yajamahe
Sugandhim pusti vardhanam
Mrtyor muksiya mamrtam
This is one of the most sacred and powerful mantras used for healing. It has wondrous therapeutic power when chanted or listened to regularly it helps to know the divinity within. It strengthens our powers of will, knowledge and action, thus unblocking the flow of enthusiasm, courage and determination. The vibration of this mantra awakens the internal healer within each of us to receive full nourishment from food, herbs or any discipline undertaken for our total well being.
