We wanted our building to be in harmony with the locale – rural county Clare. The design is similar to that of traditional Irish buildings, so it perfectly blends in the surrounding landscape. However, the orientation and the layout stray far from Irish tradition. We used Vastu shastra (the Indian Feng Shui), which loosely translates as the teaching or doctrine of dwelling.
To get the herb garden started we planted a small range of medicinal herbs including:
Rosemary, Lavender, Calendula, Hyssop, Agrimony, Goldenrod, Chives, Agastache, German Chamomile, Echinacea purpurea, Feverfew, Solomons seal, lungwort, marshmallow, Inula helenium, Lemonbalm, Fennel, Mugwort, Birch, Eupatorium, Vervain, Centaury, Hypericum, Wormwood, Motherwort and Rose Campion. (Most herbs were grown from seed & all are organic)
In Ayurveda, Spring is a wonderful opportunity to reduce Kapha and harness the cleansing energy of this season. This is one of the easiest times of the year to detoxify your body, lose weight and reduce allergies. This is generally done through dietary changes, Ayurvedic cleansing practices and herbs to support this process.
Nasya is one of the Panchakarmas (5 cleanses) mentioned in Ayurveda, Nasya therapy is a process wherein medicated herbs (decocted in oil or as a powder) are administered through the nostrils, this follows a face massage and steam.
Our Ayurvedic immersion is the perfect launchpad for journeying into the wonderful world of Ayurveda & Vedic living.
Autumn is experienced as a time of deep change and transformation. It is a season where it can be hard to find balance but is an opportunity to shift the energy in the body to regain inner harmony. In Ayurveda, we do this through Autumnal cleanses, changing our diet and lifestyle and re-establishing a grounding routine.
