Shuddha Ayurveda

Screen Shot 2011-10-19 at 8.22.18 AMShuddha Ayurveda, the Dharma Healing science, meets us where we are, helps us to see the world and our place in it with clarity, and allows us to move forward with confidence.

‘Shuddha’ means pure, positive, and non-sectarian. It is the original Dharma Healing lineage, distinguished from other traditions by three fundamental principles:

Pure Transmission

The Shuddha approach is transmitted from teacher to student in an unbroken lineage. It respects the uniqueness of each individual’s interests, abilities, and learning styles.

Pure Methods

The Shuddha approach utilizes only gentle, time-tested, safe, and non-toxic practices that protect the life force, regulate function, and increase natural resistance to disease.

All Shuddha practices are informed by the intent to release obstructions, rectify function, and restore the integrity of the organism, seeking to re-establish harmony within the individual, and between the individual, the community, and the environment.

Pure Goal

The Shuddha approach aims to facilitate the attainment of the ultimate goal of life —enlightenment and liberation— by allowing natural wisdom to manifest fully in recovering and maintaining optimal physical, emotional, and spiritual health: Natural Perfection.

Shuddha Ayurveda relies on principles to inform its healing practice. However, these principles are not rigid dogmas, and thus are named ‘pointing principles’.
