    It's starting next week! Share this with your yoga pal! Dr. Robert Svoboda, in the Ayurveda Summit: “Having a mentor or guru multiplied my ability to gain a grasp on Ayurveda.”     Dear Friend,   A year of work is coming to an apex next week with the release of the free online Ayurveda Summit.

Wild Green Ayurveda and Prana, part 1 For the March Yogidetox I ate fruits and vegetables. Exclusively. I didn’t add salt. Or spice. My palette became simple. For the May Yogidetox I ate wild greens 3 times a day (with other foods). My palette became wild (uncultivated). From these 2 experiences, I’ve noticed I can taste wild nutrients. Food from the store makes me feel one way… food from the woods and I’m a whole other animal. Literally. Read on to find out how this could make a huge difference in...

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.

The first story is the Before-I-had-much-education-on-my-sacred-anatomy story. It starts with a kick-me-when-I'm-down story. I think we all have a kick-me-when-I'm-down story. A dark night of the soul. A wake up call into a reality our ego would like to take a raincheck on. Some of us take it as a personal assault from the divine. This batch of folks falls into the demise of those with victim-mentality. I knew enough to know better. Maybe....

There is a humility to our bodies aging that bewilders me. How can I make the best of this precious vehicle - this holy abode - for up to 60 more years? This is the question. I wrote a blog post naming some of the bigger issues and opportunities I see with aging. My sense is it comes down to how we invest. Invest our awareness, which is our time. Invest our dollars in that which inspires us to take up better ways of being in a body. Invest in communities...
