NOBODY IS FREE UNLESS WE ARE ALL FREE

My mantra on a daily  basis is: MAY ALL BEINGS EVERYWHERE BE HEALTHY HAPPY AND FREE!  This is my intention and my wish for all people, regardless where they are on their path. We have to meet each other where we are at and stay open and tolerant about each other. After all, we are just walking each other home……

To be truly free requires some internal work in order to grow into our authentic selves and reveal our true gifts and allow them to come forth in our daily lives and shine. The fundamental force behind this is to be of service, which drives everything. Connection to our true nature as spirit. Starting with ourselves, nurturing our soul, being present and balanced in our bodies and minds and with the practice of meditation, Yoga and a healthy lifestyle unfurling our full potential as humans.

40 days of self love

honoring yourselfI have recently started a 40 days of self love program, designed and offered by my wonderful life coach and friend Eva Maurice. It’s not about that I already have certain tools and practices in my life, but how regularly do I actually take the time to apply them? Be it meditation, a yoga practice, journaling, or simply taking a moment for gratitude, forgiving yourself and cultivating the authentic self with conscious awareness. Please inquire for information about the 40 days of self love program and get onboard with honoring the many levels of yourself – body, mind, spirit and emotions -on a daily basis. www.evamaurice.com

Hope this finds everybody healthy and happy.

For your convenience I am now accepting credit cards for my services. There are new gift certificates available. So much for the formalities….

We are in the midst of an intense time cosmically. New moon and full moon eclipses just happened, venus transit and lots more is going on in the universe and you might have felt it in one way or another.

In those times it is important that we nurture ourselves by eating good healthy food, spending time with loved ones and friends, practicing yoga and meditation but also getting some passive relaxation where we can completely surrender without active participation, where we are able go really deeply within and let go.

If you have never tried a Pinda svedana treatment, I highly recommend you to try it. Warm steamed herbal poultices are being massaged along the nadis (energy lines) of the body penetrating deeply into the tissues, deeply releasing tension and toxins and re-alligning your meridians. After a brief consultation an herbal blend appropriate for you will be chosen to melt you into a blissful state of deep relaxation. I look forward to treating you with this ancient ayurvedic remedy.

Namaste!

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2011! I hope the New Year has started out fantastic for you, wherever you are. In our hemisphere it is wintertime, the Kapha season in Ayurveda. It is cold and moist in qualities, therefore we have to make sure we keep warm and dry. Those times are perfect for rejuvenation therapies, warm oil massages, herbal steams and the right food for body and mind to keep it engaged and active, yet relaxed.

This past New Moon I set strong intentions to move deeply into my practice, serving the highest good for others and myself. I invite you to experience ayurvedic rejuvenation treatments like Abhyanga ( warm oil massage ) Shirodhara ( warm herbal oil drip on the 3rd eye ) and any 5 sense therapy to maintain the body’s homeostasis and allow it’s vital organs to function optimally and maintain perfect health.

Lokah Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu ~ may all beings everywhere be happy healthy and free from suffering

soo much love,

Fall Equinox

This year the fall equinox and the harvest moon are happening on the same day. This change of season brings with it shorter days, wind, rain, and lower temperatures. In the ayurvedic calendar this is the beginning of Vata season. We hibernate more and after a hot outdoorsy time in the summer, we retreat more indoors and find comfort in cozy warm homes, congregating around the house with family and friends, or taking the time for reflection and going inside.

This dramatic change of seasons is also the perfect time to cleanse the body of toxins accumulated throughout the year. If we do not rid ourselves of toxins on a regular basis they will stay in our deeper tissues and create a perfect breeding ground for dis-ease to develop. If we keep our tissues healthy and cleansed, all our defense systems are strong and we are armed for the harsh winter season to come.

Please call or write to inquire about the Ayurvedic Panchakarma cleanse, an affordable cleanse program based on ayurvedic principles which rids the body of toxins on a cellular level. Please go to the service page and look up Panchakarma information or call for a free orientation.

I look forward to servicing you.

In good health, be well,

Andrea

Spring Cleanse Panchakarma

Spring is the perfect time to get rid of accumulated environmental toxins and metabolic waste in the body and mind. The ayurvedic Panchakarma cleanse is a mild yet profound way to detox and rejuvenate yourself. Like In nature this is the time of renewal.

I offer Panchakarma cleanses here in Los Angeles. Many of my clients manage to complete a cleanse although they are mothers, have full time jobs or both.

Contact me for your individual consultation.
