Meditation is not a practice to achieve blank space or blank thought by blocking, suppressing and neglecting our concerns. It is the feeling of happiness, fulfillment, contentment and peace within when we close our eyes and integrate our body, mind and spirit. Meditation is - directing your consciousness inward - to find the source of all life's manifestations.

Ayurveda - The Science of Life
What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda is a system of healing which evolved on the Indian subcontinent some 5000 years ago. It was established by the same great ancient sages who produced India's original systems of meditation, yoga and astrology. Ayurveda has both a spiritual and a practical basis, and according to this system of health care, we need balance and harmony in all three aspects of our lives, body, mind and spirit.
Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word which derives its meaning from two roots - Ayur meaning life or daily living and Veda meaning knowledge or science. Ayurveda was first recorded in the Vedas, the world's oldest extant literature. It emphasis that all beings come out of nature, that we are an integral part of a whole universe and therefore have a responsibility to our source. We are a microcosm, of the universal macrocosm. Therefore we need to live in ways that respect and honour our bodies and our environment to maintain health and well-being.
