djtaz1-e1474192325234-733x440

By: Silvia Mordini, featured on DoYouYoga.com

Taz Rashid, once a corporate guy who excelled in his peer world of Millennial values, discovered Esoteric thought, world music and Eastern Spirituality within the last decade.

These and other influences have led him to embody the vision most of us desire in our deepest selves: to live our passion.

Now a spiritual DJ, and composer of yoga/meditation/dance music inspired by Love, Ancient New World, House, Kirtan, Devotional, and all the cosmic sounds, Taz travels the world sharing his passion with others. Sit back and enjoy this inspiring conversation with Taz – it will nourish your own unfolding hero’s journey.

Faith that the Universe would provide offered me a deep sense of security. With these feelings as my status quo, I showed up wherever I was with energy that was resilient, creative and vital. Observing regular mini-miracles that often flowered into bigger miracles, I felt inspired by life itself.
