About The Seva Life

Compassion In Action

To live The Seva Life means to live in a way that honours the interconnectedness between ourselves and others; by remembering our humanity and infusing our actions in the world with kindness and respect. Inspired by seva, a sanskrit word meaning selfless service, The Seva Life is a compassionate life.

But it is also a journey towards compassion.

For us, the journey began when we started to ask why about the everyday choices we had that we were taking for granted. Questions like: Why do I eat this food? Why do I buy these products? Am I making choices about how to live based on the greater good, or because I have been conditioned to behave a certain way? Am I acting in a way that demonstrates a belief that I am above others, or do I believe I can serve others and this incredible planet we all share?

Inviting conversations around these questions and encouraging compassionate living is what we hope to inspire with The Seva Life.

Helping out is not some special skill. It is not the domain of rare individuals. It is not confined to a single part of our lives. We simply heed the call of that natural impulse within and follow it where it leads us.
