WHAT IS AYURVEDA?
आयुर्वेद Ayurveda | ayur: "life" or n"longevity” | veda: "knowledge" or "science." | translates to “the science of life.”
Ayurveda is an ancient medical tradition, which continues to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful health systems. Ayurveda is universal and timeless.
Ayurveda is a whole body, whole life principle, we don’t just look at one symptom and “diagnose and prescribe” we look at the person as a whole and treat the root cause, listening to and not masking them.
Ayurveda is NOT a fad, it’s NOT a one size fits all-same approach, in fact it is based on the premise that we are all INDIVIDUALLY made up of the elements and their corresponding doshas.
Ayurveda is connecting with and harnessing natural rhythms-circadian rhythms, moon and female cycles, seasons.
Ayurveda uses herbal medicine, diet, bodywork, counselling, rituals and routine, yoga and more to bring balance, health and vitality plus meaning and sacredness to our lives.
Basic tenents include:
-Freedom from illness depends upon expanding our own awareness, bringing it into balance, and then extending that balance to the body.
-We are all initially connected within ourselves, to people surrounding us, to our immediate environment, and to the universe. This balanced connectivity ensures good health.
-Human beings are responsible for their choices and actions.
The aim of this system is to prevent illness, heal the sick and preserve life. Aimed towards health on three levels:
Mentally, Physically, Spiritually.

Most teas are designed for 2 or 3 brews so you get more and we all waste less - you can do this by upping boiling water to a large kettle or jug thru the day or leaving the first brew for 3mins, the second for 15+ and the third for over night or more than an hour. All left over product can be placed in compost or garden adding minerals to the soil.
I’ve worked for a lot of companies in high level management, some claiming to be “ethical” some meticulously ethical, some not at all.
Thru over 24years of on the job training, studying sustainable business, owning my own businesses and countless research and networking I’ve been able to build up a trusted portfolio of suppliers and farmers so I can bring you the best quality, organic or wildcrafted, Australian grown and Aborginal owned businesses where possible.
If I’m not happy with it, I won’t use it- and if along the way I discover something isn’t ethical or sustainable I will change it. In fact I devote time each week into researching ingredients, methods and suppliers. Always paying more, taking on the extra cost and giving more time because I care about this planet and our impact.
Connection has a detailed carbon offset, sustainability, ally, giving back - business plan called 'Purpose over Profit'- which I am happy to share with anyone.
