EMF Workshop: SVA Tools & Tips; “Sattva Vijayanthi: Dispel your Sorrow this Holiday Season”; 2020 SVA Retreats; and more! – your SV Ayurveda Newsletter Nov 7, 2019 – #43 Vol 9

“Why are we offering this course?
The Holiday Season is upon us, Melina and I wanted to  create support for those who are perhaps without their  family members; are mourning the loss of a beloved; or due to unforeseen circumstances, will have to spend this festive season all alone, in solitude. 
We all know that the holiday season can be an emotionally trying time even for those who are not experiencing grief, depression, or solitude! But for those who are, it can reactivate repressed deeply buried memories, patterns, experiences – and bring even greater pain.  As a professional grief counselor, I witness it all the time in my clients. Your loss could have occured 3 months, 3 years, or 30 years ago – all it takes is a song; the smell or taste of food or a perfume; a word; they can trigger an avalanche of buried emotions and make you lose your grounding and revert to unwanted patterns of behavior. 
We will be discussing grief, but also depression – they are different aspects on the same spectrum. 
Both Melina and I will offer practical tools and tips that come from the teachings of our beloved ayurvedic guru and healer, Vaidya Ramakant Mishra, as he spoke and taught at length on this subject matter. 
When Melina met Vaidya Mishra in 1998 and became familiar with his ayurvedic protocols, she discovered the time-tested world of alternative tools (dietary and other) that allow for concrete palbable change in our ability to process and heal from mental and emotional turmoil without having to go through facing and battling the “beast within” analytically in hope of breakthroughs, or other non-viable options. She will share practical easy-to-implement gems from Vaidya’s SVA treasure-trove with you. 
As to me, I used to sit and take notes for Vaidya Mishra during the ayurvedic wellness sessions he offered to clients all over the USA, but specially in Seattle back in the 1990’s. I remember him once saying how Sadhaka Pitta (the subdosha of Pitta that is in charge of processing emotions) was way out of balance in almost every woman’s pulse he touched in the USA! He also added that it was not like that in other countries. He explained that there were many factors contributing to this collective condition, but that much more seems to be expected from American women, and that they were not supported in their relationships here in the USA… Vaidya loved to illustrate his teachings with stories, and he often told the following story to those who were going through grief, or depression…”

The Cloud of Unknowing
~ David T Hanson

We are proud to feature renowned photographer David T. Hanson’s beautiful work on our website. David is widely acclaimed for his studies of environmental ruin. In his previous books—including Colstrip, Montana (2010) and Waste Land (2018)—he has exquisitely photographed what we might regard as visual indifference, even devastation, in America’s inhabited landscape.
As a counterpoint to what can only be described as the toxic, he has now made an extraordinary document of sacred, cherished spaces, from Cedar Rapids to Kathmandu. Under the title The Cloud of Unknowing, derived from the expression of a medieval Christian mystic, but equally applicable to the voice of a Buddhist seer, Hanson has redressed the imbalance of corrupted space with places of profound harmony.
In creating this series, he traveled throughout the United States and made seven extended trips to India and Nepal. The photographs grant us access to sacred sites, shrines, “resting places for the spirit,” that transcend religious divisions and suggest a universal point of focus.
From Indian reservations to missionary churches to the temples of the modern world and the ancient, Hanson’s work reveals a realm of contemplation that exceeds geography and survives in the most unexpected corners of contemporary life.
