Grieving for the World? How the Ancient Indian Science of Ayurveda can Help. Possibility Podcast Session 21
How can we allow for the tremendous force of grief to move through us so that we can continue to be who we need to be in the world, where so much is changing so quickly? Ayurvedic Practitioner, Ayurvedic Yoga Therapist, Yoga Teacher Trainer, and Owner and Founder of Janati Yoga School in Kingston Ontario, Mona Warner, shares with host Sarah Knight how the ancient practice of Ayurveda can support us in our efforts to be the space we need to be, to help us feel the feelings we need to feel, so that we can keep on putting one foot in front of the other, at a time in history when the world really needs us to be ready for action. Mona is the author of three recent publications: Ayurvedic Yoga: 3 Approaches to Teaching Ayurvedic Yoga, Ayurveda's Three Pillars of Health: A Map to Health, Resilience, and Well-Being, and the Grief and Ayurveda Workbook.
Is there a collective opportunity in the COVID-19 induced global shut-down? Can we hold on to the “urgency” that is being generated right now to create the lasting change that we need? What if we are getting a jump start into healing our relationship with the earth, each other, and the more-than-human beings that we share this land with? These are some of the questions that Ayana Young puts forward in this episode, in her conversation with host Sarah Knight, while providing some inspiring insights into how we can show up, right now, to do what is being asked of us.
