To protect the heart...make the mind serene. -Charaka Samhita
Ayurveda literally means the science of life. As the oldest form of healthcare in the world, it acts as a guidebook of how to live your life in the best way possible. It teaches that we each have a specific blueprint -called our constitution - and with knowledge of our constitution, we can make choices that will support us to be the healthiest we can be and learn how to prevent disease in the first place. The healthier and happier we are, the easier it is for us to follow our passions and to make this world better for everyone.
Ayurveda works. I have witnessed it make an amazing difference in so many lives. But I understand that habits and routines can feel difficult to change. Like Plato’s allegory of the cave, we get used to one reality and it can be difficult to see another. But Dear Ones, you have a choice. When you are ready, you can use Ayurveda to shine light on your habits, your routines, your relationships and your life. If you are healthy, you can learn how to stay that way. If you are out of sorts or sick, you can learn how to regain your joy, vitality and health. You can turn away from the wall of the cave. You can start with a candle and end up in the light of the sun. It is possible. It is wonderful. It is a gift. When you are ready, I would love to take your hand and guide you on your own path to wholeness, out of the darkness and into the light. One little step at a time. Love, Shivani
