(For research see here.)Obviously, any one of those side benefits to meditation would drastically improve your relationship with yourself first, and with your partner second.

Which Ayurveda are You into?

Old school vs. Avant Garde. Living foods vs. cooked foods. Which side of the fence are you on, or are you straddled?There is an evolution gaining mometum in the Ayurvedic community. It's called Living Foods Ayurveda. Most schools aren't teaching it yet. Most practitioners aren't practicing it yet. The leaders in the community are Dr. Gabriel Cousens and Shantree Kacera. It's all living foods - enzymes intact - pranically intact, not dead food.When I went to Ayurveda school I never heard mention of it. That's not entirely true. I heard mention...

R U Getting Skinny or Fat?

There is nothing complex about it. Either you are storing fat cells or burning fat cells.Pause.Feel.Which is it right now?  Right now in this moment you can feel your agnis (digestive and tissue agnis). Is there density or lightness in your inner body? If there is heaviness you're probably storing. If you're warm and feel space inside you're probably burning fat.         (Heat having that hot quality ; )So if you want to have less body- you have to digest it.

Where to go for Ayurvedic Ed

About once a month I receive an email asking where to do go school to become an illustrious Ayurvedic Counselor, Practitioner, or Educator. What is so terribly exciting about the question is the sheer number of schools that have appeared or further developed their programs since I asked the very same question in 1997. Not only is the ancient wisdom being kept alive, the conversation is rising to embrace our postmodern challenges. Yet another example of how Ayurveda is intrinsically Integral - transcending and including that which has come before.Here...

Rules and dogma

A few times a week I run into a certain prejudice surrounding Ayurveda - usually in conversation with the modern western yogi.  Here is an email from last week (I'll add bold text for those who skim):Hi Cate,I"m leaning towards doing the ALC (Ayurvedic Living Course) and had a question for you.  My understanding of ayurveda is that it is really rigid as a belief system.  While I'm really interested in learning about it and incorporating, at least parts of it, into my life, I don't want to be bound...
