The Recovery

For the past 2 months I have been purposefully ignoring 10 years of training in yoga, meditation, ayurveda and psychology. The results have been trying to say the least. I gained 15 pounds and feel like crap! But, I still lived a relatively culturally “normal” life. I just didn’t follow natural wisdom. This experiment is “Super-size Me” -like in one respect (intentional self-neglect in order to demonstrate an important point about health), but it is entirely different in another (it is NOT extreme and highlights the problems generated by a lot of things most people take for granted as the status-quo of how they live).

This video marks the 3rd blog of my “recovery” from this 2 months. It’s contents are that of my first work out, a good look at my flabby belly, the dark circles under my eyes, my easy fatigue and cramped muscles, and a few inspiring words and images about the importance of cultivating health.

You can find the 1st blog about my conscious ignorance, “Crimes Against Wisdom” here.
You can find the 1st “Recovery” blog here (plus a whole assortment of other practical articles).

You can find out about counseling from this view either in retreat format in Thailand, or available anywhere online, here.

Feel free to “like” what we offer on FB here.
