Return to Paris for a few days, as an interlude before a new start.
I just came back from a trip to India, where I was fortunate to be able to study with an awesome Dr., Dr. Hari, who in addition to his biblical knowledge in Ayurveda, has so much heart and compassion. I also met friends, pure-hearted and crazy, an incredible mix to guarantee adventures and discoveries. India awakens, frightens, pricks, caresses, makes deaf or blind, fills and empties ... so many contradictions and so much to discover. For the moment I allow myself time to digest all this. Time does not press. It is always relative. One can choose at any time to slow down its course, as one would hang an hourglass, and from savior one by one each of its grains. Why hurry, there is so much to love. In recent years, through yoga, ayurveda, meetings, travels, friendships I have enjoyed every moment. But, time seems to have accelerated this year in Paris. I’m back now for 1.5 years already ... I am so happy and thankful for all the experiences I have been able to do!
I met the wonderful people in various settings, gave consultations in Ayurveda and Nutrition, followed the first patients in the long term, gave workshops, co-organized a detox weekend with my talented and amazing Friend Majda, Given cooking workshops, co-wrote a book (AyurvedaFood) with Sanjee, traveled to London and Sicily, changed apartment 4 times, survived bed bug invasion, spent days preparing Plants, elaborated my medicinal oils and ghee, tried to do home caterer with Majda, a lot of coffee too short (even ayurvedic), worked in a vegan restaurant, created vegetarian recipes with Majda, sung much, integrated a Yoga family (Samasthiti), made a trip to Corsica with my sister, danced until exhaustion, triggered my sciatica too many times by excess of dance, integrated a group of artists for improvisation, experienced full moon circles, lived 1 week In full nature with women in the Cévennes, rediscovered my totem animal, pulled the cards (a lot), lost my fetish necklace, followed an Abhyanga massage training and body therapies, integrated the Ayurveda association in France, met an amazing Practitioner in Ayurveda, celebrated my father's 60th birthday, skied for the new year with my sister, her partner and my cousin, traveled to India for the first time, created and strengthened friendships, accepted a departure, bought more books than I were able to read, doubted me, loved every moment ... Above all, I questioned my nature and my way again and again. This questioning has finally paid off, at least achieving ;). I am certain of my will to continue in the care, in Ayurveda, in natural therapies, in plants. I think that true care does not come by itself, but always within a community that learns and develops together. Ayurveda has never been practiced alone for the welfare of the practitioner as well as the patient. In the same way, true healing is done in nature and not in the city, and requires time. Finally, the will to care must be de-correlated with money in my opinion. Certainly we live in a world where we need money. But I do not want it to be an obstacle to help and care. For his reasons, I now appreciate bringing him closer to nature, studying plants directly in his bosom, and discovering the projects that advocate his values. So comes a new period of travel and experimentation. My Vata rejoices! This is how I leave Paris after my birthday. I think celebrating my 30th anniversary marks a turning point for the next chapter ahead. What's next? I will give the Ayurvedic answer to everything "it depends";) My encounters and experiences. You have to try to get your opinion and learn for yourself.
But I have validated some next milestones: I will co-animate ayurvedic cure of a week at the end of February, then direction Switzerland for 1 month in permaculture center which also cultivates medicinal plants, to discover other projects (communities, NGOs ...). Along the way, I continue my consultations and I also give treatments (abhyanga, other ayurvedic care). From now on, the payment will be on donation (monetary or not).
Thank you to all and all the people who crossed my path these years
