Ayurveda teaches that the mind has the greatest influence over the body toward sickness and health. The goal is to contact your inner intelligence (or mind), bring it to peace and balance, and then extend peace and balance throughout your body. The guiding principle is the interconnection of all things, a holistic perspective that health is not just a lack or illness, but a higher state of consciousness that allows vitality, well-being, creativity, and joy into your life.
Illness is a blockage or disruption to the flow of one's energy and information that creates a sense of separation from the field. When your body is sick or displaying symptoms, there is a need to restore balance, eliminate the blockage, and re-establish the healthy flow of energy and information.
Principles for restoring and maintaining mind-body balance can be sought through:
There are five elements that make up everything within and around your body. There are space, air, fire, water, and earth. Biological systems weave these five forces into three primary patterns known as dosha. Doshas are the mind-body constitutions that each individual has, but everyone is a combination of all three.
All three doshas are present in every cell, tissue, and organ, but what differs individuals from one another is the unique way you combine all three, determining the distinct qualities of your mind and body, leaving you with dominant tendencies towards one dosha.
The three doshas are Pitta, Vata, and Kapha. Pitta is comprised of the elements fire and water and administers of digestion and metabolism. If Pitta predominates in your nature, you will tend to be intense, intelligent, and goal-oriented with a strong appetite for life.
Vata is comprised of space and air, which regulates movement and change in your minds and bodies. If Vata is a dominant in your system, you tend to be thin, light, enthusiastic, energetic, and changeable. Kapha is made from earth and water, maintaining and protecting the integrity and structure of your mind and body. As a Kapha dominant dosha, you tend to be easy-going, methodical, and nurturing.
The principle goal of Ayurveda is to determine your dominant dosha and to find balance with the three bodies, which are the mind, body, and soul. Finding balance comes from using nutritional diets, herbs, aromatherapy, massage treatments, music, and meditation.
This retreat will take place right in the middle of San Jose del Cabo and Los Cabos Mexico off the main highway, which is a little piece of heaven that provides a perfect getaway under the sun.
