159 | Dhatu Nourishment & Care

Join Angela in this solo episode: Dhatu Nourishment & Care. Ayurveda looks at how all parts of us work together in unison rather than in separate systems. In this episode, Angela shares all about each of the seven layers of the physical body - The Dhatus. This topic has been brought up before in this space, and the reason Angela feels it's important to bring it back around is because so many things we do in Ayurveda, such as chewing our food well and getting enough rest, are supportive of the tissues of the body. We we don't do these things, they begin to corrupt and break down. May this episode allow you to begin making the connection between what you do in your life having a direct correlation to what’s happening in your body. In this episode, learn more about: • Doshic attack against Agni when they begin to fall out of balance and what that may look like for each dosha • An overview of when disease happens within the body • A review of Agni • Signs of malfunction for each of the seven dhatus and how to begin to provide nourishment and care for each of them • and more!

158 | Ahimsa, Ayurveda, Veganism and the Gray Space

Join Angela in this solo episode: Ahimsa, Ayurveda, Veganism and the Gray Space. This episode comes from countless conversations with yoga students, fellow practitioners, those on social media, in person classes, etc. It's something Angela has been curious about in her own life since beginning to practice Ayurveda 14 years ago, and she has been learning and getting to the root of what the teachings do say. There is some pushback from those who view Ayurveda and yoga through a particular lens. This is a hot topic for many people. Wherever you stand, this is the Gray Space: where Angela chooses to live without being rigid and black & white in her thinking no matter what it is. It's important to her to zoom out and see things from all perspectives and empathize. This conversation was a former place of shame for Angela, and why she feels like she HAS to talk about it. This episode encourages you to look at context when you're in conversations with people about Ayurveda, and ask things such as: Who are you talking to? Where are they at in their life? What’s the next best thing? What *is* ahimsa in this moment? And then to begin to soften in any area where you feel rigid. Please share this episode with others and tag Angela on Instagram at @simple_ayurveda . The more that we're in this Gray Space and accepting of others, the more that we soften into this place of compassion and true ahimsa, the better the world is. In this episode, learn more about: • A simple introduction of what ahimsa is to start to think about it or revisit it• An overview and explanation of who traditional Yogis were • What Ayurveda is and what it's purpose is • The history of yoga and how it became so closely tied to the concept of Veganism• What is said in the Vedic texts about animal products • Recognizing the Gray Space and consider the difference between discomfort and harm • and more!

156 | Healing the Thyroid with Dr. Marianne Teitelbaum

Angela and Dr. Teitelbaum have a discussion on many Ayurvedic topics, including the correct way to treat every disease, by addressing that particular person's unique imbalances before any herbal protocol is given, and practical advice on the diet and daily routine. Angela hopes that this conversation inspires you to pause and put a little more planning and effort into the small things that make a big difference in the long run.

Dr. Teitelbaum is now writing books, articles, blogs and courses based on the knowledge Vaidya Mishra imparted to her before his untimely passing in April of 2017. Her first book, Healing the Thyroid With Ayurveda published by Inner Traditions was published in March of 2019.

149 | Living with Chronic Illness

Join Angela in this solo episode: Living with Chronic Illness. Tune in as Angela shares real life support for living with chronic illness going into what helped her process and work through her chronic illnesses and still come out the other side joyful, content, and accepting of what is, even the moments that are not joyful. Her hope is that this inspires you to understand that healing is a practice that we can’t always make sense of, that healing is a journey not a destination, and that day-to-day life is the spiritual lesson. If you are not one with a chronic illness but you have someone in your life who does, perhaps this is an invitation to really let go of judgment when they're not there for you or they're not doing what you would expect. Just recognize that we all have struggles and not everyone's vocal about it. In this episode, learn more about: • Frustration at the linger aspects of chronic illness • We can’t blame ourselves for having chronic illness because we don't’ know why we have the karma • Softening victim mentality through acceptance + surrender • Healing is a journey, not a destination • The importance of allowing yourself to feel the emotions, then finding a way to process and move through them • How it’s okay to understand you have different needs than most everyone else • Embracing humor and accepting the quirks around living with chronic illness • and more!

Interview with Lopa van der Mersch: Why You Shouldn’t Outsource Your Spiritual Sovereignty

Join Angela and guest Lopa van der Mersch in this episode: Why You Shouldn’t Outsource Your Spiritual Sovereignty. Many of us spend our lives seeking spiritual truth and fulfillment. But, for Lopa, that journey led her somewhere she never expected — a cult. Well, two cults to be precise. She might not have found all the answers she was looking for, but she did learn a tremendous amount about outsourcing your inner knowing, losing (and reclaiming) your voice, and finding your unshakable source of integrity within. Lopa van der Mersch is many things: Ayurvedic practitioner. Mother of two. Sustainability advocate. TEDx speaker. Recovering cult member. Her adventures have taken her around the world in search of health, spiritual fulfillment, and deep energy. 2 Years ago, she added a new chapter to her life story: Founder and CEO of Rasa, the adaptogenic coffee alternatives revolutionizing people’s relationship to their energy.
