Forage your way to well-being. Learn about wild edible plants and herbs, nutrition, connecting and grounding.

Foraging isn't just about discovering what nature has to offer – it's also a way to build community. When you forage for your food, you become more connected to your surroundings and the people and plants you share it with. Drawing from her years of experience, Cynthia will also share some valuable insights about how the practice of food foraging can build up more robust and more resilient communities – something that is becoming increasingly important in the world that we live in.

Introduction to the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda and gut health with Vandana Sivaranjini
$50 for those not on the full months challenge. 

Ayurveda is the sister science of Yoga and its primary focus is on optimal gut health by resetting gut bacteria. It does this through aligning the body's natural biorhythm providing multi-benefits. During this session, Vandana will impart the practical nature of this wisdom, how the body is aligned to the moon and sun cycles for health and how we can start uplifting the vibrancy of our own body, mind and overall life.

The session will cover:

  • Ayurvedic view of gut health
  • Why elimination helps reset gut bacteria
  • The importance of observing your tongue to plan your diet
  • The body's natural biorhythm
  • The flow-on benefits of aligning the body to Ayurvedic gut health principles

About Vandana 

In India, she was born into a family that followed Yogic and Ayurvedic teachings as a usual way of life.    She only fully appreciated its value after five years of training with two foremost saints in India. 

Formerly, she worked within the Financial and IT industry (Microsoft NZ), which gave her a full appreciation of life's stress and responsibilities, resulting in suffering a heart attack at 42.  She was on all sorts of medication and also had rheumatoid arthritis. Her health journey was the application of all that she knew from growing up and Ayurveda and Yoga. She began to understand how the body's internal chemistry or inner pharmacy can be realigned to wellness and now teaches this wisdom to all those with whom she connects.

Her experiences highlighted that knowing the tools and wisdom are not enough. The application of these into daily life is most important.  Each of us needs to understand how to read the body's signs before a possible breakdown, so we can preemptively course-correct to maintain high levels of integrity between body, mind and emotions.
