GROW YOUR OWN HEALTH
Each class will teach you how to grow your own foods, flowers, spices, and herbs so you can cultivate health from your own garden, backyard, balcony, or back porch.
My grandfather and Guru, Baba, is the inspiration for our ancestral library. Baba was an extraordinary Ayurveda healer and spiritual teacher in Ayodhya, India, whose very presence soothed, comforted and gave hope to the many who sought his counsel. Baba enlivened my classroom with real life nature immersion. He taught me how to touch, smell and taste health by introducing me to Ayurveda’s super foods, healing spices and recipes, and led me on countless adventures through farms and forests full of magical herbs. We planted garden herbs and harvested fruits and flowers together. We cooked oils and balms and put together medicinal formulae that were distributed free of cost to all who sought Baba’s help and blessings.
And then, in my Baba’s classroom, all of nature became revealed to me, when he expounded upon the great old texts like Charaka Samhita that capture Mother Nature in her breathtaking magnificence, mind-blowing intelligence, entirety, and depth. A common natural and intelligent rhythm that binds all living creatures in its loving embrace was revealed to me. It was clear that for awakening abiding health, this rhythm - physical, biological, emotional, and psychological, had to be upheld, no matter what.
I am delighted to now bring these teachings alive for you, with the support of Chef Sanjai, who shares his love of cooking inherited from his mother and grandmother, through our Ayurveda Ancestral Herbal Library.
