Where the sweet things are – finding goodness through grace, gentleness and gratitude, part 1

In this episode, part 1 of 2, wellbeing author of Sattva (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sattva-Ayurvedic-Way-Live-Well/dp/1788172248) Eminé Rushton, shares ways of sweetening up your life, during bitterly cold days, as well as the more tiring and trying days, and the chain reaction set in motion by these shifts. These are the practices and choices Eminé always return to – they are all simple and practical, yet often forgotten in the rush of the ‘everyday’ –from the importance of the environment we eat our meals in, to the bonding power of gratitude.

Where the sweet things are – finding goodness through grace, gentleness and gratitude, part 1

The Sweet Spot – the primal importance of sweetness in our lives

Nourishment – of the spirit, the heart, the mind, the body – are far more complex than the nutritional profile of our food, and often, with life’s busy-ness and demands, we can lose sight of this. A provocative episode that asks intuitive questions about why we crave what we do, and how to feel into their root meaning.

The Sweet Spot – the primal importance of sweetness in our lives

Bliss and Blessing, over blindly doing – how to find your way back to you, by defining your non-negotiables

Sometimes we are forced to make space in our lives because we could not sustain the lives we lived before. But sometimes, we make space, unsure of where to go next –trusting that once the space is made, the right thing will come into its place. In this intuitive & personal episode, wellbeing author, Eminé Rushton, reflects on her own choices & decisions, and where they have led her –and also asks us all to consider the reasons for the decisions we make –and whether or not we make them because we are too scared to maintain space, silence & stillness in our lives. Getting clear on our non-negotiables –the bedrock of good health, clear thinking and heart-led living –are at the crux of how we move forward, and how we begin to make better decisions.

The Clearing – How to FEEL your way into a more natural, more gentle, and more aligned way of living

Wellbeing author, earth mama & nature lover, Eminé Rushton, awoke in spring of this year, with six words in her mind: “We’ll meet you at The Clearing.” She wasn’t sure what they meant, or why they had come to her. In this episode, Eminé explores the importance of giving ourselves the space to reflect, clear and ultimately FEEL our way around our lives – without fearing that we have to rigidly plan every small thing in order to be successful. She also talks very candidly about her own creative process – with its own shortcomings and pitfalls – which led her & Paul to create The Clearing – a brand new ‘year-long nature lesson’, and member’s community, within This Conscious Life. Join Eminé & Paul for a year-long lesson, deeply rooted in nature, with monthly lessons, seasonal attunements and nourishing rituals and recipes. Learn more at www.thisconsciouslife.co

Unconditional Living – the importance of doing what feels right, in a world that feels wrong

Co-founder of This Conscious Life, and co-author of SATTVA: The Ayurvedic Way to Live Well, Eminé Rushton considers the biggest lesson she’s learned from her youngest daughter –in embodying all that you are, freely and lovingly, without condition. In this episode, Eminé explores what a life with less fear, and more love, feels like –and how we can build a better future for ourselves, by removing our choices from expectation-rooted ego, and focusing on unconditional & good intentions instead. Part of the poem, Ulysses, by Alfred Lord Tennyson, is shared at the end –food for the spirit, to remind us, it’s never too late to seek a newer world. www.thisconsciouslife.co https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sattva-Ayurvedic-Way-Live-Well/dp/1788172248

The problem with Happy Endings – and how we can begin to seek true contentment in the simplest ways, right here, right now

In this short ‘story’, Paul Rushton explores what our quest for the happy ending might teach us about our selves, and shares his own learnings on happiness – how, so often, we set ourself up to fall or fail. He explains that bliss, or ‘ananda’ is our natural state and our natural birthright. By bringing our attention to the things that distract us from this ‘bliss’ and happiness, we begin to see how we are fabricating obstacles to this natural, gentle path. By celebrating Sattva –the truth of life, and truthful, conscious living –we remind ourselves that we are here, alive, and can thrive without any extra ‘stuff’. Paul and Eminé mention one of their favourite books in this episode –Spiritual Compass, by the wonderful Satish Kumar –which also guides us through the subject of ‘Sattva’... Satish sent us a copy of his book, with a beautiful note within, having read our own book, Sattva. It’s a book we return to often, and read with open hearts & pure acceptance. We rec...

The Gentle Period – achieving menstrual harmony with Ayurveda

In Ayurveda, our menstrual cycle provides us with a uniquely valuable insight into the workings of our female body. In this episode, Eminé Rushton takes a look at how each part of our menstrual cycle is defined by a different dosha –which gives each part its own natural characteristics and sensations – and how each dosha type presents with a different set of pre- post- and menstrual symptoms and experiences. By looking to balance the body with diet, lifestyle and spiritual practices, we can look to create a truly gentle period, and a harmonised menstrual cycle. I mention shatavari, brahmi (gotu kola or bacopa) and tulsi (holy basil) in this podcast too –they are wonderful adaptogenic herbs, which are useful for bringing balance to our bodies. Always seek out a reputable organic supplier –I like Pukka, Organic India and Ayurveda Pura. It is always a good idea to have a full Ayurvedic consultation with a doctor or practitioner –the APA UK (Ayurvedic Practitioner’s Association) ...
