In April 2017 I spent two weeks at Barberyn Beach Ayurveda Resort in Sri Lanka. This video documents my experiences during this time. It includes my understanding of the 5000 year old therapies I received, and the thoughts and emotions I had along the way. It also touches on my experience of my Nana passing during this time.
“Because we cannot scrub our inner body we need to learn a few skills to help cleanse our tissues, organs, and mind. This is the art of Ayurveda.” – Sebastian Pole
I wrote another post about Ayurveda here, describing my understanding of it in more detail.
“When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need.” – Ayurvedic proverb
All in all I think it was a beneficial experience and I saw a lot of people come a long way in a short amount of time. Many who would return year after year and were adamant that they never got ill.
“As long as we are not living in harmony with nature and our constitution, we cannot expect ourselves to be really healed. Ayurveda gives us the means.” – David Frawley
