    The Guest House by Rumi

    This being human is a guest house.
    Every morning a new arrival.

    A joy, a depression, a meanness,
    some momentary awareness comes
    as an unexpected visitor.

    Welcome and entertain them all!
    Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
    who violently sweep your house
    empty of its furniture,
    still, treat each guest honorably.
    He may be clearing you out
    for some new delight.

    The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
    meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

    Be grateful for whatever comes,
    because each has been sent
    as a guide from beyond.

    Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī

  • Ayurveda Fall Rejuvenation and Cleanse


    Ayurveda Fall Rejuvenation and Cleanse

    October 25th 1 - 4 pm

    with Nora Beckjord


    Ayurvedic cleansing is about creating a life-practice that can heal, nourish and sustain you so that you transition from one season to the next without feeling the effects of the seasonal changes. Many cleanses offer magic-bullet, fast-acting approaches but they do not address the deeper imbalances of body, mind, and emotions for the long term. An Ayurvedic cleanse helps to cultivate a foundation of optimum health and balance. It works in a subtle, deep way to prepare you for the upcoming season and beyond. A fall cleanse is not a fast- it helps to nourish the tissues and satisfy the mind as you release toxins (ama)from the body and undigested thoughts from the mind.

    As we move into the fall season, it’s the ideal time to embrace the Ayurvedic principals for sustainable health to prepare for the long Minnesota winter. The fall rejuvenation cleanse is simple and easy to follow no matter what your schedule. And you will not be hungry!

    In this three hour workshop, we will explore what Ayurveda is, discover our own Prakruti (body-type) and where we are imbalanced (Vikruti). We’ll make a delicious batch of kitchari for lunch and review the cleanse that will last approximately 21 days. You will have support throughout the cleanse through a closed Facebook group and 24/7 email and phone support. There will also be Ayurveda products available for sale at a discount. Space is limited so please enroll early.
