Ayurveda means “Knowledge of Life” in Sanskrit. It is the indigenous health science of India but so much more than that. It is a vast ocean of knowledge, whose many branches include surgery, herbs and food supplements, rejuvenation therapy, diet and exercise, yoga.
Ayurveda recognises three primary motivating principles in Nature that govern all manifestations. Everything we hear, touch, see, taste and smell as well as everything we feel inside is a unique combination of these three governing impulses. The three principles are those of Movement, Transformation and Stability, and the results of these are called Vata, Pitta and Kapha (The Three Doshas) in Ayurvedic technical terms.
By understanding these principles, we have a greater opportunity to bring balance to our lives and Tim’s presentation may offer a pathway to transform those things that have been obstructing our progress.
