Embark on a 3-Day Journey into the Ayurvedic Philosophy of Food

Your food choices determine how much strength, energy and mental alignment you manifest. Food sciences today are confused, retracting their forceful recommendations every few years and replacing it with confusing opposing evidence. With no consistency and scanty science, the food industry has bullied the modern world for nearly a century with food products, non-nutritive stimulators, and made us servants of our unenlightened tongues.

Herbs and foods that are natural to the Earth reconnect us to the rhythms of nature. Bio-magnetic forces that have recently received attention by modern science help us understand the transformative impact of natural herbs and spices. During this three-day journey, employ the philosophy of food practiced through the ancient Indian system of Ayurveda.

DAY 1: Feed Your Rasa

The six tastes (rasa) are deeply connected with our digestive capacity and preferences. Through them, you can transform the gifts of the earth into energy. We will learn how to taste food and why feeling happy is important for digestion, fitness, and strength. When you become conscious of your food choices, you learn that what you digest influences the qualities you embody.

DAY 2: Find Real Āhara

Learn the 10 food groups used in Ayurveda. Step away from kitchen tools, preparation, and processes that confuse your subtle body, and replace them with nourishing choices. We will explore the foods that aid and improve your agni (digestive fire) so as to lead a more fulfilling life.

DAY 3: Empower Taste using the World of Herbs

Expand your in-house pharmacy with a handful of readily-available herbs for specific common ailments. Recognize and transform early symptoms, and bring yourself back to health. Integrate fresh foods and time-tested herbal formulations that balance the complex chemistry of our bodies, helping us to build the strength and vitality that fuels a long and happy life.

This challenge offers the unique opportunity to:

  • Develop an Ayurvedic dietary plan
  • Transform cravings into contemplations
  • Harness spices and herbs for common ailments
  • Learn to eat in alignment with the day and season
