Niika's favorite purpose of Ayurveda is as a Language of Life –that can brings us into closer, more intimate relationship with Nature, inspire us to sharpen our perception of Nature's qualities and forces, expand our awareness of dynamic changes in the people, days, seasons and places we know and love, and refine how we make choices to bring healing, learning, enjoyment, satisfaction and life-sustaining outcomes as we interact with all levels of living systems, all the time.

SHARE Your Thoughts

As you engage in this program, you mind find yourself having head-scratching moments on occasion.

If you have a question, please WRITE it down.
Then:
ASK YOURSELF these questions before you request an answer:
1. If I get a bit quiet, sleep on it or take a walk and let my mind settle, do I find I ALREADY KNOW THE ANSWER?

2. Do I need to know the answer now, or can I HOLD the QUESTION OPEN for a while?
(Time can unfurl fuzziness and bring clearer insight than "an answer" often can.)

3. CAN I EXPERIMENT IN REAL LIFE in some way to get more information?
(Life is your Laboratory. What a great resource! Use it whenever you want...)

If you've given these 3 approaches to getting your answer a try, and still want to ask Niika a question, you're more than welcome!
