Favorite Quotes:

  • “Some people have less than, less than a teddy bear, fuzzy cozy personality. People can have roughness in their skin. These are ways that we might see the quality of rough. Vata is also subtle. Even when you start thinking about how huge this universe, you live in actually is.”
  • “They have, in so many ways, these incredible, innate superpowers that are all about being like a super-sensitive instrument. And what can be so hard about being a Vata, about having Vata predominance in your constitution is that the modern world is hyper-stimulated.”
  • “Netflix says its biggest competitor is sleep.”
  • “the biggest issue for most modern-day Vatas, is that life in the modern world is very challenging, right? There's a lot of draws in your attention. There's a lot of opportunities, there's too much to do. The endless to-do list can all get done and you are limited. You're limited in your energy.”
