Beautifully simple age-old rituals for modern-day living that will enhance your wellbeing, and give you back your zest for life.

is the Sanskrit word for wisdom.

Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest healing systems, rooted in the principle of a mind-body-spirit connection. Ayurveda comes from the Sanskrit words ‘ayur’ and ‘veda’, respectively ‘life’ and ‘knowledge’, meaning ‘knowledge of life’.

This book dips into this ancient knowledge base, extracts the essence of this Indian philosophy and revives a wealth of timeless rituals to effect positive change in our lives.

In India, from the prayers and chanting of mantras to daily yoga and breathing exercises, these rituals are an intrinsic part of everyday existence.

The book offers rituals and routines for the entire day, from the moment you wake up and need the energy and positive mindset to help you start the morning, to night-time practices that allow you to wind down, relax and get the most benefit from the healing power of sleep.

In between there are numerous breathing exercises, meditations, mindfulness techniques, yoga stretches, simple recipes to enjoy and other rituals to observe throughout the day. All are based on ancient Indian Ayurvedic wisdom and practices, tried and tested over the centuries.
