If the sun has gone to bed… so should you! Nature as a whole is resting during the darker times. These days there is every excuse and opportunity to stay up later, and maybe to get up later. We can falsify nature with bright electrical lighting to make us think it’s still daytime at 11pm, and blackout blinds to make us think it’s still night time at 11am. But this is dragging us out of sync with the way our bodies are naturally attuned to be!
My last blog post was about Ayurvedic doshas, and how your dosha might affect your meditation.
One of the main questions I am asked about my meditation practice is something along the lines of “but don’t you just sit there and think about all the things you need to do today?” Well yes, I do! I’m primarily a Vata personality.
Ayurveda means “science of life;” it’s a traditional Indian medicine system whose applications run far and wide. In Ayurveda, every person is treated as an individual. It is based on the principle that we are all made up of different proportions of the five elements: air, fire, water, earth and space. The proportions of these elements we have in us determine everything from predisposition to illness to skin type.
