The Power of Ayurveda: 3 Ways to Beat the Late Summer Heat

Authored By: 
Sarah Guglielmi

As summer’s nearing end, I find myself and the world around me entering a season of change – back to school, vacation’s over, and the lush vibrant greens of midsummer are now showing browns and yellows at the edges.  Just today I saw a hint of red coming forth!

No matter where you live geographically, your internal “nature” experiences the change of the seasons.
Summer is the season of heat.  The sun is close, and the element of fire is predominant in nature.

I LOVE with Food

Kendall Inman

For as long as I can remember I have loved people with food. So it is not ironic that I find myself immersed and fascinated with the science of Ayurveda. Obviously there was some karmic residue in and around food for me in this lifetime.

My father wanted a boy…I received a fishing knife for my 6th or 7th birthday and a fishing tackle box for another birthday. For my 12th birthday, I received a down sleeping bag and all I really wanted was platform shoes and a denim patchwork skirt. I wasn’t going to be a boy, as exciting as those outdoor toys might have been I wasn’t going for it….
