Ayurveda & Affirmations: Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life!

Every single thought you think has power. Power to bring you towards health or towards disease. Towards peace of mind or mental anguish. In order to achieve health, you must first understand, and admit to, your power to create disease.

How do you know that God exists? ~ Q&A with Swami Swaroopananda

“God is a name that we give to a certain reality, so there is a more important question that should come first, which is, "How do I know that I exist?" In the same manner that I know I exist, I can know that God exists, not just as a theory but as a reality.

Ayurveda and Cycles of Time: How the Doshas Rule the Day

Have you ever found that if you sleep in, you feel heavy and sluggish all day? Or that at about 10 pm you get the munchies? Do you sometimes wake up at 4 am worrying, and have a hard time falling back asleep?


Ayurveda and the Concept of Karma

“Karma is often defined as the law of cause and effect or action and reaction. This law states that for every effect, there must be a cause. Something must set into motion a force that creates the eventual effect. In this context, karma is a physical force that creates our experience of the world. 

Ayurvedic Seasonal Routine for Autumn

 During the autumn months, the accumulated heat of summer leads to dryness in the world around us. Winds often blow, which increases the dryness. The earth cools. Leaves wither and drop from the trees. The qualities of roughness, lightness, dryness, mobility and coolness pervades the atmosphere, and thus, our selves.

Ayurveda and the Natural World

Imagine, for a moment, that you are strolling through a forest on a warm spring day. The forest is bursting with life, and as you gaze about, you notice that in the deep shade, ferns flourish as mushrooms push up through the moist soil. Water lilies float upon the surface of a nearby pond. In the distance, wildflowers dance in the breeze of a sunny meadow. 

Ayurveda and Biodiversity

 Every garden needs biodiversity! Biodiversity helps ensure the health of ecosystems, and this beautiful yellow flower with red speckles serves just this purpose in our Medicinal Herb Garden. Plus it attracts birds and butterflies to the garden, and is used in making flower essences.
