David has vast wealth of knowledge and experience in Ayurveda! Ayurveda is a traditional, natural system of healing and medicine that has been practiced in India for over 5,000 years. The word “Ayurveda” literally means “the science of life” in Sanskrit and is known for promoting longevity and a high quality of life. Ayurveda is a holistic and integrated approach to wellness, promoting harmony and balance of body, mind and spirit. Through the successful practice of Ayurveda, one can more fully express one’s true nature, enjoy ideal health and actualize one’s full potential as a human being.
Ayurveda is based on the premise that there are forces, elements and principles in nature that comprise it, hold it together and allow it to function and flow as it does. These same dynamics are also at play in human beings, since we are ultimately a part of nature. Ayurveda offers an integrated, holistic approach to treating and preventing illness using natural therapies, dietary elements and lifestyle interventions.
In Ayurvedic practices, the mind and body not only influence one another- they are each other. Consciousness and physical matter comprise the human body-mind, and it is nearly impossible to delineate where one leaves off and the other begins. Universal consciousness is one force, one energy that is the world, the Universe, the cosmos and everything in it. Pure consciousness is all that is- it is an ocean of intelligent energy that gives rise to all the forms, permeates all forms and is the place to which they return. Ayurvedic studies and philosophies strive to reconnect us with this oneness energy of the consciousness of our true nature. In this realm of consciousness, everything exists, and anything is possible- including optimal health and healing.
