Panchakarma: Linda’s Experience

As some of you know, Dr. Linda Bark was in Hyderabad, India, for Panchakarma, until late November 2019. The Raju Panchakarma Health Center is in Hyderabad south India. It is run by 13th generation Ayurvedic physicians…it’s the “real deal!” The fathers and mothers in the family line prepare some of the medicines for their children to give when they become physicians…because some preparations can take 50 years before they are ready to administer! Here was Linda’s schedule for a typical day at the health center:…

A New Year, A New Decade

  Congratulations! We are not only at the start of a brand new year, but a new decade! It’s quite something to think about…being in the year “2020” seems monumental! We’re curious, did 2019 end the way you wanted it to? It’s useful to reflect on the past year, and the past decade, to clearly see where you want to go now. (ie. We aren’t going to visit the past and stay there, but use the information to gain new awareness and move forward.)  …

Birthing the New

Image by Wolfgang Borchers from Pixabay     The world is going through a birth. This isn’t a new concept, but it’s helpful to talk about what’s going on in our lives from this perspective. What we can do to help the birthing process is to let go of things that no longer serve our highest good, and then ponder what we want to create instead.    Here are some questions to consider as we complete the last two months of 2019: What do I…

Back to School

    It’s that time of year again! Whether or not you are officially “back to school,” this is a great opportunity to assess how you would like to keep bettering yourself. (This could be for your own personal development, professional development, for your own self care.) Sometimes it’s difficult to assess when we need to turn inward, process and contemplate, and/or when we need to turn our attention outward and act on what we’ve already learned.     Here is a “mini-assessment” to help…

Interdependence

    Everyone here in the United States will soon be celebrating Independence Day. We often celebrate with parties, picnics, great food, and fireworks. Then, on July 5th, Dr. Linda Bark likes to celebrate what she calls “Interdependence Day”; a day to celebrate connection, collaboration, and working together to form the whole. To be clear, it’s not about celebrating independence OR interdependence, but about coming from an integral perspective and celebrating both. As social beings, we have a desire to connect with each other, make…

Transitions

    Many people are in the midst of transformation right now, both in their personal and professional lives. This transition from the “old” to the “new” can find us smack-dab in “the gap”; the place where the “new” hasn’t landed yet, and we’ve come untethered from the “old.”   If you are currently in “the gap” right now, consider these coaching questions: Are you comfortable in “the gap”? Do you try to avoid it at all costs? Do you jump right over it? Do…

Chaos

  Changes in this world are happening quicker than we think and it can be hard to adjust. It feels like chaos here in the United States. Political parties are pitted against one another, extreme weather is becoming the “new normal”, and stories of gun violence are populating the news. This in addition to personal issues, relationship issues, financial issues, and/or health issues that we (or those close to us) are experiencing, can add to a cocktail of instability mixed with fear with overwhelm.   …
