Hello beautiful ones!
Ayurveda is a sacred beautiful science that looks at health from a holistic perspective – dealing with you as a whole being acknowledging your body, mind and spirit as being important equal factors that need nurturing and attention.
This science is vast, expansive, endlessly wise and deeply nourishing… deeply!
There a many great teachers of Ayurveda in the world, however sometimes it can be hard to know where to start when you want to begin learning, growing, understanding and delving into the magic (and yumminess within) that ayurvedic medicine has to offer.
I am often asked what books or teachers I recommend to study with. I feel it is a very personal, individual journey and that finding the right teacher/mentors to suit you as an individual is vital in that learning process. Trust your intuition and see who you are drawn too.
The first book on Ayurveda I ever read (and still love to open up and read to this day) is a beautiful little book by an incredible Doctor and teacher, Dr. Vasant Lad. I have admired and devoured Dr.Lad’s writing for years now… his text books are incredible and everything of his that I’ve ever read, watched or listened to has inspired me deeply.
If you want to know where to start on your Ayurvedic journey, I highly recommend his book; “Ayurveda: The Science of Life”. It’s an easy, inspiring and beautiful read.
There are many, many other great teachers and Doctors who I have sat with, listened too, watched, marvelled at and read.
Coming up this week – starting tomorrow is a super exciting and great event happening online – globally called The Ayurveda Summit.
A bunch of the most inspiring, wise and experienced Ayurvedic practitioners and Doctors are presenting over the Summit that goes for the next week and all the talks can be streamed online for free!
I just found out about this great even happening and for the love of Ayurveda – I just had to post about it to let you know incase you would love to tap into what they have on offer.
The link to register for this amazing free event is here – click below and prepare a nice cup of warm turmeric chai (recipe on my blog!) and sit back to receive the goodness on offer. :)
Dr.Vasant Lad (one of my Ayurvedic hero’s!) is presenting a talk during the summit along with one of my current teachers in Ayurvedic Digestion & Nutrition, John Immel from Joyful Belly Ayurveda, Dr.Robert Svoboda (amazing), Dr.Cladia Welch (incredible) and many many more super Ayurveda wise men and women!
Ayurveda is so magical. I personally fall in love with the wisdom and beauty present within Ayurveda more and more each day… and I started off head over heals (over 10 years ago now!) …the love is still growing, the inspiration is still dripping from my wholesome kitchen walls and …well, only God knows where this sacred, divine, nourishing and inspiring love affair with the knowledge and science of life will grow to as the love continues to grow… :) This science is endless – infinite and goes straight to the core of why we are here, what we are doing, our purpose, our health, wealth, love, relationships, food, nutrition and connection to the divine.
Perhaps we will share in some virtual sips of chai from our cosy homes during the next week of the Summit… :) Enjoy if you get to tap in and listen.
P.S. I have some juicy exciting ‘Wholesome Loving Goodness’ news for you real soon and a free webinar coming up that I will be announcing soon where we can sip chai together and talk all things digestion, ayurvedic cooking, nutrition, self-love, health, lifestyle and soul ! Keep your eye on your inbox! :)
Much love! :)
