And now practice mindfulness

Focused on NOW

Active intentional attention

Observing without judging

THEN – which I cannot change

NEXT – which I do not know

NOW - I miss

I remember

I create worry – fear – sadness

I am attached

I remember

I choose NOW

I swear I do

As I move to NEXT

Creating links without evidence – a perversion of faith.

I Choose Worry – fear – sadness

NEXT slips and I swing into THEN, pain – sadness – loss

In a “sound bath” or mindful sound meditation, a mindfulness and sound expert plays instruments such as the gong, singing bowls, and tingsha bells to curate an immersive sound experience. Students simply let their attention rest on the sounds arising and passing.

Participants often report feeling re-centered and relaxed after the Mindful Sound + Healing class, and this anecdotal evidence is supported by science. Sound waves move through the body differently than air, since the body is 65% water. Sound meditation has been shown to incite the relaxation response, which promotes the parasympathetic nervous system and allows for deep rest.

Personally I like to boost prepare my body with this '6 Spice Turmeric Tea' good by itself or with a meal !  A wonderful tea packed with the goodness of Turmeric, Ginger, …a total of six Ayurvedic spices ! Try it and let us know. 

Holistic science of Ayurveda teaches us that our health and welfare depends upon one main factor, and that is how strong our digestive system is. That means the ability to digest everything we take in from the environment. This includes not only tangible substances like our food and drink, but also our capabilities, emotions, and the imprints we take in via our sensory gateways. And this Digestive system depends on “Digestive fire. “

Life can be tough when living with persistent pain and aches. While there are no better means of getting treated than through professional help, for many of us the associated costs are too high or there’s simply not an effective enough treatment available to be prescribed. 

Luckily, there are plenty of alternative forms of relief available that can help relieve individuals of an array of different muscular, dental, arthritic and cellular pains to name but a few. Let’s explore seven stand-out remedies that you may not have tried before:

In today’s always-on world, multi-tasking is the norm. When you’re doing a lot of things at the same time, it can feel like you’re accomplishing more. It’s even common to feel guilty and unproductive when you are only doing one thing at a time.

However, neuroscience tells us that it is actually impossible to pay attention to two things at once. When we think we are doing two things simultaneously (like watching TV and answering email), we are actually “task-switching”—switching back and forth rapidly between two or more tasks.
