YONI MUDRA

04: Ayurveda

DR.GEORGE EASSEY

Ayurveda is like an ancient tree growing from a deep spiritual base, branching into a rich and compact philosophical system. Medicine is only one aspect. The word ayus meaning life and veda meaning knowledge. Ayurveda is the art of living.

IVANA BALDO:
My journey to ayurveda

ZUZANA ZWIEBEL

My favorite symbol is lotus flower. The petals are considered to depict the opening of the heart. And as the roots of the lotus start in the muddy earth and rise up to the light, also we can rise up from any difficult situation and reconnect to the light again.

THE TALK Nº4:
Ayurveda & Art of Happiness

MINI CHANDRAN

Part of ayurveda healing is not being afraid to express yourself. There is a thin line between being foolish and genial and we are afraid to cross it. We should have a good laugh or cry when we feel it, rather than trying to bottle it up and be an adult.

SwaSwara A Woman

MINI CHANDRAN

SwaSwara reminds me a woman, she can be moody, but still you feel her openness and free flow of all-encompassing energy. She is a mother, a sister, a healer, it's all there! I think, this is Swara of Swa, you can hear that echo in the whole way it's built.
