Alignment Recapped

Alignment – Your most important relationship by Jim Montrose, Ayurvedic Specialist, November 2020 In the past we have written many articles on alignment and we still find it is the most important vantage point that anyone can take to heal, to reach their health desires, and live a happier life filled with wonder, joy and bliss. We also find it is one of the most critical components of a retreat that requires constant practice to grasp and start to adopt as a new habit. Read more about the most valuable thing you can do every day. Remember Zaida is seeing patients from December 7th on and we are having the annual goal setting seminar on January 2nd. Stay tuned for more details on our seminars and Happy Foods in January and February. Happy Holidays and Best Wishes!
