What is Abhyanga? with Kate O'Donnell

Even the simplest Ayurveda practices complement Western medicine because of their focus on righting imbalance before it creates disease. Keeping digestion on track is the key to health in Ayurveda, and eating natural, homemade foods in accordance with personal constitution and changes in environment is often all that is needed to bring a body back into balance. The Everyday Ayurveda Cookbook inspires yogis and nonyogis alike to get into the kitchen and explore this time-honored system of seasonal eating for health and nourishment.

This Is It:
The Here and Now of Everyday Living

I came to realize clearly that mind is nothing other than
mountains and rivers and the great wide earth, the sun
and the moon and the stars.
—Dogen, Shobogenzo

It is not necessary for you to try too hard in this practice. All that is necessary is for your mind and body to be present like the moving grasses, the petals of a tulip, the currents and subcurrents of endless rivers. Take your concepts of the body composed of all the elements, your concept of the mind composed by the past, your
selfimage, and cast them off, beyond the world of form. Until we drop our concepts and efforts in this practice, it’s difficult to value the fact that “this is it.” There is nothing special to become or achieve.
