Still Point Ayurveda is based on the understanding that health is an outward expression of an inner experience. This inner experience comes from a deeper understanding of our natural capacity for optimal living. The "still point" is a place of stillness that exists within each and everyone of us and that can allow us to experience our inner knowing and awareness. It is the seed of potential, the unending possibilities of what living life means in relation to the uniqueness of each individual. There is something so sacred about being able to step away from outer distractions and step back into our deeper knowing that possesses all the "tools" we need in order to support optimal health and balance in our lives. In this, we can see the Earth as a whole is connected, making the world smaller and yet fascinating. Similarly, within the body the vast connections of all the cells, organs and systems that tie together create an individual. Both globally and individually come to see the smallest of the small and the biggest of the big. The intention is to help you align with your right to live life fully, healthfully, and completely. By attuning ourselves to this internal wisdom we can create and achieve harmony which supports the body-mind-spirit paradigm. Through this philosophy we can all attain eternal healing. Through having a place where someone holds a sacred space that allows us to "drop in" we can become aware of the stillness within where everything comes from and how to proceed from. This is like the bindhi presented in numerous art pieces of asian traditions, represented by the dot at the center. It's a magical place. We can reconnect with the magic of our lives, when we slow down to see what is happening in the moment. " Stillness has the power to heal the body and to awaken a higher energy and awareness in the mind. Such yogic stillness, however, is not an enforced stillness born of personal effort but a natural stillness born of deep relaxation."- Vamadeva Shastri (Dr. David Frawley)
