Ayurvedic Detoxification

A Replenishing Autumn Retreat

Marisa Jackson-Kinman (Sri Devi)
Tuition: $475

Ayurveda teaches that no two people are alike. We each have unique needs which, when understood and met, allow us to live balanced, harmonious lives. Ultimately, this sets the stage for achieving inner peace.

But what does this mean for you? Which is best for you – to purify or to nourish? Purification rids you of toxins (which Ayurveda calls ama), and nourishment restores vigor and vitality. How can you determine which is most suited to you, and how can you accomplish this gently and safely on a daily basis?

According to Ayurveda, proper diet and lifestyle are key, along with understanding what makes you uniquely you. In this program, you will learn basic principles of Ayurveda along with the Ayurvedic approach to diet and lifestyle. We will share meals together which will be suitable for purification and/or nourishment, as each person requires. We will learn important lifestyle practices to support you in maintaining optimal health all the days of your life.

As we embrace and apply fundamental Ayurvedic principles, we will explore how doing so reveals our true inner nature – which is pure love, pure joy, and interconnectedness.
