Hawah is a Vipassana meditation practitioner and recently completed a 20-day silent Vipassana meditation retreat.

Over the years, he has authored five books, produced four documentary films, and released two music albums. He is the founding editor of​ The Poetry of Yoga​ book anthology (published by White Cloud Press), and his documentary film project Fly By Light received wide acclaim and awards while touring international film festivals.
