Central to Ayurveda is the concept of the 5 elements (Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth), all of which are present in the universe as well as in the human body – the human body, according to Ayurveda, is viewed as the microcosm of the macrocosm that is this universe.
These elements combine to form the constitutional makeup of our bodies – known as ‘doshas’ or bodily humors. These are Vata = Air & Ether, Pitta = Fire & Water and Kapha = Earth + Water.

Greetings from Quebec! Early fall is in the air and bright red leaves have introduced themselves within the lush green deciduous forests of the far north-east. A beautiful sight! I have not seen a north-east fall in many years and I realize now how much I miss it!
The journey begins at the airport in Montreal. That's when you realize that you are indeed in another country. The signs are in French and English. In the airport, most people speak both languages but more than a few do not speak English fluently and the vast majority speak English with a strong French accent. I've been taking this trip annually now for 10 years of so. I never learned the language. Just saying that makes me feel like a stereotypical arrogant American. Of course, we're all Americans aren't we, both in the North and in the South.
This past month was very exciting at CCA. While of course we were involved with a wide array of teaching programs at both our Northern and Southern California locations, the highlight of the month was most certainly the Celebration of Ayurveda. The events began on June 14th with one of the most special puja ceremonies we have ever had at CCA.
