Have you ever stood in the Sun for a while and gotten a sunburn?
Āyurveda आयुर्वेद, meaning knowledge of life and longevity, is the healing branch of yogic science. Yoga is the spiritual aspect of Ayurveda, while Ayurveda is the therapeutic branch of Yoga. Ayurvedic Psychotherapy uses Jyotish or Vedic Astrology as a guide or map to the transformation of personality, to self-actualization and self-transcendence, ultimately to discover our true nature. It uses an understanding of the health or wellness of the body systems to compliment the overall state of our being. The growth process is aided by a mind and a body free from dis-ease. Aimed at Self-realization, this is the discovery of our true nature beyond time and space.
Outer therapies are linked with physical modalities like diet, herbs and movement and meditation. Inner therapies work through impressions and consist mainly of color, aroma, energetic and mantra therapies. In our work together we will learn about which remedies are right for you to create the harmonious life we crave. We will train tools that allow us to soothe and move through life without being stressed by external factors.
Have you ever stood by the shore and watched the moon pull the tides?
Yoga as a medical therapy is traditionally part of Ayurveda, which deals with the treatment of both physical and mental diseases. Ayurveda Psychotherapy uses yogic methods, like Yoga postures and breathing exercises, to treat physical diseases. Ayurvedic treatment methods for the mind include yogic practices for spiritual growth, like mantra and meditation. The Ayurvedic view of the mind derives from Yoga philosophy and its understanding of the different levels of consciousness.
Ayurveda Psychotherapy recognizes four primary levels of healing:
- Disease Treatment
- Disease Prevention
- Life Enhancement
- Awareness Development
I've found if we walk together for a while we can begin to see the signs and read your map. We will use a set of assessments to restore balance and use your Vedic Natal Chart as an entry point so we can work deeper from there. Literally the whole known universe is laid out in front of you - through discussion and interpretation we can see it together.
Your Natal birth chart shows your gifts, talents and opportunities as well as the challenges you face. It helps clarify the places and times where you can make conscious choices rather fall prey to your unconscious conditioning.
What makes you think the other planets between the Sun and the Moon don't pull and burn also?
Psyche - The Human Yoga
I've created this this concept to represent the phenomenon that the mind and the body act as one being. A “yoga” or union of these 2 entities give us our self. Its this unique integration that can create complete inner peace. Its their disintegration that can leave us completely unstable.
Using this concept, I work to offer information and observations that empower us to gain or regain the feeling of mastery of our own life experience. I combine traditional Freudian and Jungian theories with Ayruvedic Psychotherapy and Jyotisha to create both emotional and behavioral remedies. Traditionally emotional relief is only found in western psychology and behavioral remedies have been compartmentalized almost out of existence in most modern culture
