the lessening of fluctuations between rajas (over activity of the body/mind) and tamas (lethargy or inertia) and gradually arriving at SATTVA (balance, harmony).
One applies abhyasa (effort and discipline) and vairagya (detachment from outcome) in the process of lessening those fluctuations.
In that sweet spot of sattva is surrendering to your dharma, ultimate healing.
The process is gradual just like the quieting of Newton’s swinging cradle of balls.
If you would like to start or deepen your healing process, schedule a free 20-minute consultation to help you identify what ayurvedic or yogic therapies might be beneficial for you. If you decide that this is where you would like to start your journey, we can schedule a more in-depth appointment.
