Connect with Nature Through Ancient Medicine

Connect with Nature Through Ancient Medicine

How do we reconnect to nature in our modern world?

Think of the last time you unplugged and went for a walk in nature . . .

I want to share this guided meditation with you . . . based on the ancient wisdom of connecting to nature and its abundance. 

When was the last time you hugged a tree?

I know an odd question, but recently on a nature walk, my daughter walked up to a tree . . . and hugged it.

It was so natural for her. To connect to a life giving plant this way…and I wondered when the last time I had hugged a tree was.

Our modern world doesn’t suggest this connection to nature that often. We are driven by technology, absent of the true elements that make up our world . . . that make up . . . us.

Ancient Ayurvedic principlesshow that the elements in nature (air, fire, water, earth, and space) are also present within us. When connecting to nature, we are also developing a deeper connection to the world around us. This is, essentially, connecting to ourselves.

Ayurveda acknowledges that certain weather and seasons can affect the way we feel and respond to events in our lives. It teaches us how the increase or decrease of certain foods help balance the elements brought about during certain times of the year.

It is an ancient system of science that draws on nature rather than working against it to find a cure for common ailments.

And so when you hug a tree like my daughter did, it’s actually . . . healing.
