Sacred Chemistry is what happens when we perceive the transmutations and subtle gradients. We allow and observe the energetic transfers between energy (prana) and matter (everything prana can influence). The hard scientists may cringe. Cringe away - we hippie-dippies don't care.

Yet, in an attempt to bridge two forward thinking, even potentially evolutionary communities,  we want to understand, as yogis and as ayurvedic practitioners how to intelligently and seasonally prepare living foods. Ayurveda doesn't prejudice climates, ecosystems,...
