In 2010, Pamela Cefaratti joins us for our advanced studies work. She will share her Aryuvedic knowledge. She studied for 4 years with well respected Dr. Vasant Lad in New Mexico at The Aryuvedic Institute becoming one of his top students.

Just today, I was thinking about the 6 tastes & how they are understood in Aryuveda. I still have a lot to learn!

emotions: love & attachment
