Wise Earth School of Ayurveda was the first school for Ayurvedic studies in the USA. Established in 1981 by Maya Tiwari, also affectionately known as Mother Maya, WEA seeks to share the ancient Vedic knowledge of sadhanas (sacred daily practices) that align us with the rhythms of nature. It’s a simple yet profound philosophy that brings us back to our roots and our very essence, for we are all comprised of the same five elements as everything else in nature: space, air, fire, water and earth.
Your intuition is a knowingness within you that comes without explanation or proof. This knowingness takes place at the cellular level and beyond. Some of us like to refer to intuition as the “gut feeling.” It is important to know that your intuition is not limited to the area of your gut because it sometimes can come from within every cell of your body.
According to Ayurveda, the 5,000 year-old system of mind, body, and spirit holistic health, if you’re anywhere in the world where winter is transitioning into spring, it’s Kapha season. The earth is damp and it’s no coincidence that the elements associated with Kapha are water and earth.
While every living thing, whether plant, animal or human, is comprised of all five elements–ether, air, fire, water and earth–there is usually a predominance of one or two elements in each individual’s constitution. Ayurveda refers to this as your dosha, or biological humor. Today I’m focusing on the Kapha dosha so that we can strive to stay in balance during Kapha season. Kapha dosha is slow, steady, heavy, oily, cold and soft. It is responsible for structure (earth) and lubrication (water) in the body. A healthy immune system depends on Kapha.
