Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing rooted in the ancient Vedic culture of India. Literally meaning “the science of life” (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge), Ayurveda is the sister science to yoga. Together yoga and Ayurveda work toward the goal of helping a person achieve health, happiness, and ultimately liberation. According to Ayurveda and yoga, health can only be achieved by the balanced and dynamic integration of body, mind and spirit with the changing cycles of nature. Ayurveda is a way of living. The guidelines provided by Ayurveda help us achieve physical, mental, and spiritual balance.   The secret to health and longevity is living in harmony with Nature cycles.  We are all a part of nature.  All life is made up of the same elements as in the Nature. Earth is our body, water is the blood in our veins, fire is the heat in our body, air is our breath, and ether is the space in our atoms. There are three biological forces that govern both our inner and outer environments. These forces, known a doshas, are Vata (air/ether), Pitta (fire/water), and Kapha (water/earth).  Every human being is a unique manifestation of these three forces of Nature. Moksha festival offers a number of lectures and workshops on the Ayurvedic perspective of health and wellness.
