Ayurveda is a way of life, a world view, and a full system of medical care that has evolved in the context of Vedic knowledge over thousands of years. Its wisdom comes from the Indian sacred texts, deep observations, and the clinical practice, of countless sages over time. It is still being advanced today through the contributions of modern scholars, clinical practitioners, and clients wishing to maximize their comprehensive well being or svasthi.
Ayurveda literally means “science of life”; that is life as it relates to longevity. It is based upon the deep understanding of universal elements and the wisdom of nature, time, place, mind, perception and many other ways of harmonizing with the intelligence of creation.
It is helpful to learn about your basic Ayurvedic constitution (prakriti) and current condition (vikriti) before embarking on any Ayurvedic regimen. Contact Beth to get started with this process.
