The Mindfulness Movement

Are you noticing everywhere you turn your head there is a rising awareness of mindfulness in connection to body-mind wellbeing and happiness?

From yoga and meditation, to a revival of Ayurveda in the west, an ever-growing population is choosing to live life mindfully, in harmony with nature, doing good unto others, while coming to the realization that less is more.  

The Mindfulness Movement has arrived and it is here to stay!

As Ayurvedic Practitioners, it is our job to guide people on their journey to total harmony.

However… I want to ask you this posing question: must we adapt to modern times if we want to spread the science of Ayurveda in the western hemisphere?  I believe, the answer is a resounding YES!

The idea behind Blissful MindSpa automatic shirodhara equipment arose from the realization that this glorious therapy is practically unknown beyond India.  How can it be!

For millennia, shirodhara has experienced little, if any changes.  In India, it is administered by two therapists who perform a synchronized dance with one therapist warming, collecting and refilling the medicated oil into the shirodhara pot, while the other moves the stream of liquid over the third eye of the laying person who experiences the healing, mindful ritual. In the modern spa and clinic setting, this age-old tradition becomes cumbersome and prohibiting, adding the extra cost of two therapists and large amounts of oil.

To revive the ultimate mind-body-spirit balancing treatment ‘shirodhara’ must be simplified and modernized while maintaining its original methodology intact or it runs the danger of vanishing.  This is why I created an automatic shirodhara equipment with traditionally handcrafted pieces, so simple to use that it is enhancing the way this therapy is experienced by both therapists and clients around the globe. 

“A healthy mind is the true key to happiness,” said His Holiness, the Dalai Lama recently, during his keynote speech at the Global Spa and Wellness Summit.

If we don’t adapt slightly to modern times, yet without compromising the principles of Ayurveda, it runs the danger of remaining in obscurity and depriving the world of its incredible benefits.

I would love to hear your comments!
