Ayurveda...a holistic system of medicine. A science and art that has been practiced for more than five thousand years. Ayurveda; the principles, philosophies + practices stand the test of time, and are calling us to come back to nature and understand her healing ways and guidance.
Ayurveda translates to the "study of life." Ayu refers to "life" and veda refers to "knowledge." Ayurveda was founded on the knowing that everything is connected to everything. That human beings are a MICROCOSM within a MACROCOSM. The knowing that when a human is brought back into balance, humanity is also brought back into balance. An Ayurvedic perspective; human beings are not viewed as mere thinking, physical machines; but rather as fields of intelligence in dynamic exchange with the energy and information of the environment.
Ayurveda is considered one of the world's oldest healing sciences. This healing science was founded with the perspective that the physical world, including human beings, expresses itself through five elements of nature. The qualities of these elements are considered energetic patterns. Since we are nature, we are in dynamic exchange with the energy and wisdom of the environment. These energetic elements of nature are; earth, water, fire, air and ether.
An Ayurvedic lifestyle invokes a re-awakening + re-wilding. It's an invitation to reconnect to our subtle awareness and our innate resonance with the elements and the energetics of nature and her cycles. This wisdom teaches us ways to explore and experience the five elements of nature; through daily rituals and seasonal practices. Ayurveda is our guide which brings us into alignment with Mother Nature and to ourselves.
My Ayurvedic studies began back in 2013. But truthfully felt like the medicine I had been seeking all my life. Ayurveda was the balm my overthinking mind, fatigued body + weary spirit were longing for. In 2020, I embarked on a 2 year deep-dive, 600 hr Ayurvedic training and certification path. It was on this path where I learned Ayurveda as divine feminine form medicine. It is through this feminine form lens that we are encouraged to trust in our bodies, as they contain the intelligence of the cosmos and the intelligence of nature. This practice asks us to become connected to the whispers our WHOLEBEING is sharing with us. To trust that we have the inner-knowing and power within. To become awakened so we can hear and answer the calls, which lead us to health + vitality and serve the needs of our highest good. With this inner-knowing and trust in nature, feminine form Ayurveda encourages us to ask "what do I need now?"
EARTH BIRD WHOLEBEING was created from a deep desire to share this ancient and potent wisdom. To share the ways these teachings and daily practices have been a gift to my wellbeing. So they may be shared + carried on and become a gift to all.
It would be a true honor to be your guide on this path. a path where you discover harmonious wellbeing + elemental brilliance.
"As is the microcosm, so is the macrocosm, As is the atom, so is the universe, As is the human mind, so is the cosmic mind." -Deepak Chopra
