With excessive thinking and worry around the presidential election, combined with the seasonal shift into colder, drier, windier weather and the approaching holidays, we are presented with the perfect formula for Vata aggravation.

Regardless of how I was introduced to Ayurveda, here’s the thing: I was introduced to Ayurveda at just the right time in my life. Only five years earlier I was on another trajectory studying Naturopathic Medicine at Bastyr University in Seattle, WA when my father was diagnosed with malignant melanoma. I knew instinctually that there had to be “another way” to access health and wholeness in mind, body, and spirit, but at the time I was not ready for the depth and breadth of self-care and purification practices offered by Ayurveda. It took the deeper work of finding stillness (sthira) and single pointed concentration (dhārana) on the yoga mat to be prepare me for my introduction to the Elements (mahabhutani) as Beings with whom I could enter into relationship. That was the shift that occurred that led me to study the science of Ayurveda as a healing practice.
