Ayurveda, the science of life is a gift given by Source itself to facilitate the healing

Our bodies, our temples… no one has been home to tend them. In the stress of the modern world faith, trust, belief, inspiration, truth, unity, and hope have all been lost. As the internal structure crumbles; the external body therefore ceases to be funded, so it too crumbles.

Rebuild the seven sacred expressions of spirit through the 7 dhatus (tissue systems)

  • Rasa (plasma, white blood cells, lymph)
  • Rakta (red blood cells)
  • Mamsa (muscles)
  • Meda (adipose/fat)
  • Asthi (bones/joints)
  • Majja (marrow/nervous system)
  • Shukra/Artava (male/female reproductive system).

The seven chakras are the doorways. As we heal, removing negative emotions, we will re –infuse the self with PTO– Prana (life force), Tejas (magnetism) and Ojas (vitality). Unprocessed elemental forces will again begin to process and digest properly, transforming into these vital essences, continuing the resonate field of divine opportunity.

When the five elements—ether, air, fire, water and earth are properly transformed into PTO, they no longer mix with unprocessed emotions that are trapped in the dhatus (tissues) to create dis-ease. The corresponding emotional components to these tissues are as follows:

  • Rasa (faith, trust, resonance)
  • Rakta (enthusiasm, nourishment)
  • Mamsa (strength, courage),
  • Meda (tenderness, love)
  • Asthi (structure/stability)
  • Majja (sensitivity, hope)
  • Shukra/Artava (creativity, spontaneity)

Life once again become an expression of divinity’s desire to manifest the dream… I’ll meet you there.

Very much looking forward to spending a long weekend with you while you share your words of wisdom. I wanted to share with you that I feel AMAZING!!!! Something major shifted about 10 days ago. I think my herbs kicked in and the kapha diet is agreeing with me. I’ve also been doing my smoothie and a bit of juicing (you’re right, the Norwalk is high maintenance and messy-still picking up carrots and kale from my ceiling and dining room!) but the juice is oh so good. Worth the time and mess.

I wouldn’t be feeling this well without getting my physiology straightened out.

Thank you!!!! Namaste!

I felt compelled to write you to tell you how fantastic I feel already. I saw you on Thurs and began my food disciplines right away. I have taken my herbs as prescribed and one of the immediate things I noticed is that the herbs I take after lunch and dinner immediately make me feel light in the stomach. The discomfort is totally gone. I was able to do sit-ups without feeling nauseous or pressure.

Further, for the first time in about a year, I have slept straight through the night! I had no idea how out of balance I truly was. I am looking forward to continually getting better.

Thank you. Have a great new year.
