so, I’m writing this on Friday night at the shop – the Friday before Christmas! We’ve had a busy day – but there seems to be a bit of a lull…as the few folks who are in here are browsing, I thought I’d update the blog… I went to another Chopra workshop a few weeks ago in Westminster, Colorado. I now dream about Deepak on a regular basis…maybe I’m a little bit obsessed, but the man has changed my life. hmmm, I can’t think of the last time a man changed my life! Well…ok – that’s another story…
I have to say that Dr. David Simon is truly the star of the show – he’s the co-founder of the Chopra Center and just a brilliant, insightful, delightful human being whom I’m so happy to be incarnated with on this earth.
Anyway – I’m still living (and will always live) my Ayurvedic life, eating to reduce my Kapha dosha. I’m down 31 pounds now – 31 pounds never to be seen again on this body!It’s an entire life-style change that couldn’t have happened if I hadn’t gone through panchekarma at the Chopra Center in late August.
Panchekarma removes ama from your system. Visualize a sticky resin that’s lining your intestines and not letting nutrients get through to your system. Ama can be those cookies you loved for years, fast food, birthday cakes, that ice cream you just couldn’t pass up…for 10 years! It just gets stuck in you and the only way to remove it is through this process (in my opinion).I’ve become such an evangelist that I’ve signed up for a home study course through the Chopra Center to continue educating myself, with the hopes of teaching classes here in late 2008.wow – getting busy – so I guess I have to go!
