In today’s busy world where food is valued for being fast and cheap and the media compels us to consume but not get fat it is easy to become confused about what choices are right for us. Looking through the lens of Ayurveda, we will discuss ways to tend our digestive fires with dietary choices and eating habits tailored to your individual needs.
The first lecture in this series, Ayurvedic Dietary Principles, Part 1 introduced the primary Doshas, their connection to the Five Elements as reflected in one's individual constitution and in the food one eats.
The final lecture in this series, Ayurvedic Daily Lifestyle, helps us create a daily routine that brings us into harmony with the rhythms of nature.
Prerequisite for this course:

On the nature of resolution, Scott writes:
“We resolve to find and found, re-find or refine the light that is the gift we give and receive in many ways every year. The yoga tradition leads us to ideas of purity, contentment, intense effort, self-reflection, and surrender to Divine Will. It also leads us to the story of Prince Siddhartha, the soon-to-be Buddha, who resolved not to rise from the base of the Bodhi Tree until he had awakened to reality in its ultimate sense.
“Assailed by demons and temptresses, hunger and doubt, the Buddha stays true to his simple resolution not to leave his meditative seat at the base of the tree. Upon awakening, the world bursts into flower; reality fills with freedom and transcendent peace. This is ironic: freedom from self-imposed limitation, focus, discipline, flowers from dark night. This is the tradition and practice of making resolutions in which we allow light to manifest in ways it may not without proper preparations, attitude, work, sensitivity, and devotion.”
