What to Do When Your Brain is Tired

What to Do When Your Brain is Tired

Mental exhaustion isn’t necessarily the result of things gone wrong, or any big upset—though it can be—but more of an accumulation of too much. Too many decisions. Too much work in not enough time. Too many interruptions, demands, shifts in attention. Too many things going on without time to pause and restore.

Why Determining Your Ayurvedic Constitution Is so Important

Why Determining Your Ayurvedic Constitution Is so Important

Ayurveda teaches that we are all born with a set constitution called prakriti (means nature or first creation in Sanskrit) which is determined at the moment of conception. Determining factors are the constitution of both parents (genetics), the state of health of the mother throughout her pregnancy, environmental factors such as the season and even time of day when conception occurred, and our karmic memory (what we carry over from past lives). Just like we cannot change the color of our eyes or how tall we are, our prakriti never changes.

It is from the three doshas (forces or bodily humors) known as Vata, Pitta and Kapha that seven body types (emotional, physical and spiritual) are formed. Our individual combination of the doshas create our unique prakriti.

Amazon Tribe Creates 500-Page Remarkable Natural Medicine Encyclopedia

Amazon Tribe Creates 500-Page Remarkable Natural Medicine Encyclopedia

The completion of the encyclopedia after two years of intense work, compiled by five shamans with assistance from conservation group Acaté, is a historical and critical first step towards mitigating existential threats to healing wisdom and self-sufficiency. It is a true shamanic encyclopedia, fully written and edited by indigenous shamans, the first to our knowledge of its kind and scope. The ultimate objective of the initiative is the integration and enhancement of ‘Western’ health delivery with traditional practices. Tribes in the region depend upon rainforest for survival but this relationship extends beyond a utilitarian reliance; there is a spiritual link to the forest, a sense of interconnectivity. For the broader conservation movement, we know that there is a strong correlation between intact ecosystems and regions of indigenous inhabitation, making strengthening of indigenous culture one of the most effective ways to protect large areas of rainforest.
