- â€œWhen Darkness Becomes Light,â€ Thich Nhat Hahn
Restoring our own natural balance does not mean finding a perfect balance of the three doshas or the same balance as someone else, but rather tuning back into what is natural and necessary for our very own bodies. Ayurveda gives us this perspective, which may help us reframe our own expectations about ourselves or about other people, as we realize that each personâ€™s health depends on restoring very a subtle and personal balance within themselves. Discuss what Ayurveda teaches us about the relationship between our dosha and illness, and how this self-knowledge can help us restore and maintain health.
How might awareness about our dosha and its natural tendencies also help us to be less judgmental towards ourselves. Discuss Thich Nhat Hanhâ€™s musings on meditation to further support your understanding of how to approach awareness.
