Ayurveda is the knowledge of life and a healing system rooted in ancient India. The knowledge of Ayurveda had been passed down through the sutras (suture with a thread). The sutras contain wisdom to be unlocked by the inquiring mind. These sutras are composed as a form of poetry dating back over 5,000 years. Ayurvedic philosophy is based on the Shad Darshan, the six philosophies of life developed by ancient sages and scriptures. The scriptures are known as the Vedas (bodies of knowledge) dating back around 10,000 yrs.

We have moved into Vata season here in the west.
Vata is Ether + Air - dry, light, cold, rough, subtle, mobile, and clear.
Avoid/eat less salads, raw veggies, unripe fruit and cold foods and beverages.
To balance Vata during this season, foods should be warm, moist and heavy.
These foods could be created with a soup, stew, sauce, broth base.

I honor my grief + begin to heal my wounds from the loss of my mother by accepting all of who she was in her entire essence + existence on this earth. All of her choices + experiences were a piece of my own story, of what has guided me to be the person I am today. Going through my grandma's belongings, I went through photos of my mother as a little girl who's parents chose not to be fully present in her life. A little girl who deserved more love by her parents than she was ever given. I am grateful to have been apart of her story as she is of mine. I have chosen to honor my mother + heal my family's future generations by being the mother my children will always need... continuing to learn, grow, heal + contribute. Healing forward. - Victoria Marie
