The Wisdom of Rhythm, Integrity + Dharma with Acharya Shunya
Acharya Shunya was born into an Ayurvedic lineage. Her guru was her grandpa. Her life was Ayurveda from the beginning. Today we talk about her new book- Ayurveda Lifestyle Wisdom.
My daughter’s education outside the home has little to do with deep wisdom. It has more to do with practical life skills. She goes to school for math, language training, socialization, a little art. After school she learns gymnastics. I’m sure there is implicit wisdom in her day to day learnings.
But explicit wisdom? Wisdom for the raw sake of wisdom? She gets that at home. Today Acharya Shunya is back.
I rap with Acharya Shunya about Ayurveda Living Wisdom
- What happens when you accomodate your guests needs before your own
- Rebels, hacks and gurus in the Ages of Ayurveda
