The ancient Indian definition of health is Swasth, from the words Swa or Self and asth meaning establishment of place. Thus defined, Health means not only an absence of disease but a a sense of being fully in one’s “place “ in the universe, a contentment that comes from realizing one’s potential and purpose in life. As we contemplate our place in the world its important to understand that we are as much an ecosystem as the earth we live in. The ancients had a unique way of visualizing this. They liked to look at the phenomenon of all creation as an interplay of Anda & Pinda, microcosm and macrocosm. What takes place in the one affects the other and vice versa. As, we move into Autumn the weather turns cooler bringing with it an increase in symptoms associated with an Air or Vata imbalance, such as dry skin and creaky joints, This is why the cooler temperatures of the Fall are ideal times for beginning treatment, and for receiving maintenance sessions, if you have already completed your full course of therapy. The reason for this is that these are median times, periods when the outside temperature is neither too hot nor too cold, and your doshas or impurities are in a volatile state, meaning they can be expelled with relative ease before being driven deep into bodily tissues by the onset of cold weather. To facilitate healing at this ideal time we are offering special series discounts. Contact us for details. I want to take a moment to thank everyone who has donated already for our Kuti project.
