AYURVEDA (Ayur=life, Veda=science or knowledge)
is an ancient science from India dating over 6,000 years, which syncs the mind/body connection within a sophisticated system of health. With its foundation based on elemental theory, (similar to Chinese Medicine), Ayurveda recognizes our body’s constitution through the Doshas: Vata (air and ether), Pitta (fire) and Kapha (earth and water). When these elements are working harmoniously with each other, we experience health and wellbeing. When one or more of these elements fall out of balance, we are vulnerable to dis-ease. Through the practice of Ayurveda, we balance our body and mind through working with the elements, by using food and herbs as medicine, and bodywork to move stagnant energy and calm the nervous system for a holistic approach to health.
Raven Olay was working as a Fashion Designer in Bali when a tragic loss changed the course of her life. After several years of soul searching, she found herself in India where her journey of personal transformation deepened through the study of the traditional health science of Ayurveda.
Through this ancient wisdom she was able to recognize the disconnect between mind, body and spirit in Western culture and identify a profound need, in our modern age, to come back to a state of balance with nature.
These traditional practices enabled her to attain a deeper connection with the earth. She ca rries an intimitate understanding of the intelligence of plant medicine as well as a holistic approach to optimal health and well-being. These gifts were received by channelling a great challenge into a greater medicine, Raven now invites you to trust the inner landscape of your authenticity, and honor the journey of the true spirit of healing.
