Dynamics of Nutrition: Marma, Mind, Mahagunas course

Oct. 5 & 12, 2022 (virtual course)


Close to 25 years ago, Dr. David Frawley gave me Secrets of Marma, a book he and Drs. Ranade & Lele had just published in India. I was immediately hooked, having recently finished training in Polarity Therapy bodywork. Contacting two marma points at a time on myself or my clients, feeling the energy within them come into resonance, inviting energy to flow, this has been a great joy for me ever since.


You don’t have to be a body worker to engage with Ayurveda Marma therapy. It can be used to settle energy during charged moments in counseling or nutrition education or in one’s own life. I’ll be teaching more about this in my upcoming workshop, Dynamics of Ayurvedic Nutrition: Marma, Mind, Mahagunas.

Adapt Recipes with Ayurveda

May 10, 2022

For ourselves, there’s plenty to adapt to, these days. Perhaps your child or partner is allergic to garlic – or could it be wheat? Or you’re dropping food to…
