Willingness to change: the path to perfect health.

Maui 2015I saw this quote the other day and it struck me in its simplicity and good sense:

“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.” – Andy Warhol

How often do we try a new diet or exercise plan and really commit to it for a while, but go back to the same old habits? I used to do that with nutrition and exercise.  Not eat a piece of cake or ice cream for a week, increase cardio activity – and then eventually either because of fatigue, stress or wanting a little emotional comfort, go back to my old habits.

Since attending the Perfect Health program three years ago, I’ve undergone many changes. As life unfolds, the changes continue. Robert and I were at La Costa Spa for a belated 10 year anniversary celebration and enrolled in a program which I thought was a Meditation retreat- it’s a long story.:)  It turns out it was a weekend intensive on mind-body medicine based in Ayurveda called “Journey into healing.”  It was an amazing, inspiring experience!!

We learned about our mind-body constitutions, how to choose the foods for healing and nutrition, the right way to detox – food, substances and emotions, and the transformative power of meditation.

Although Robert and I have both meditated for many years, my practice became much deeper and more consistent as I incorporated breathing techniques (pranayama), a mantra and sutra meditation and committed to a daily practice. And, in addition to our individual practices, we now meet in our living room almost every morning to meditate together.

Perfect Health Program week .

Robert and I came away from “Journey into Healing” determined to make changes that would last. Truly, that anniversary week away was the catalyst for transforming how we start our day, becoming more conscious about the foods we eat, the exercises that work best for our bodies and most importantly, as a long-time married couple, how to communicate more consciously in all areas of our life.

The Perfect Health Ayurvedic program isn’t just another certification for me, it’s a  way of daily living and ongoing healing. It’s a transformational process that deepens as i continue my daily practices: Stretching, Breathing techniques, Meditation, Nutrition, Conscious communication, and spending time in nature on a more regular basis. I’m grateful for the profound changes its made for my husband and me. I believe it in whole heartedly and am very much looking forward to sharing it with you!

With gratitude and love,
