Join Scott Blossom, Ayurvedic Consultant and Traditional Chinese Medical Practitioner, and Cristina Star, director of TRU Education, in a 10-day Fall Cleanse as we connect to the transformative power of supportive community, cleansing gourmet food, compassionate self-care, and refinement of how we live balanced, meaningful lives.
Ayurvedic cleansing is unique in the world of detoxification because of its balanced, gentle, and nourishing approach. The dietary and lifestyle practices reflect the “middle path” of healing, where rejuvenation and purification are included in each step. This reflects an understanding that real transformation takes place gradually and subtly, in a way that our bodies, minds, and hearts can truly assimilate.
This balancing cleanse is about creating the space in your life for 10 days of very intentional living, and seeing what happens.
By temporarily adjusting how we eat, work, exercise, and sleep, we shake up our “cornerstone habits.” These are the day-to-day, often unconscious, habits that form the core pillars of our lives. Changing them invites us look closely at our underlying beliefs, and discover what truly makes us healthy and happy. The process is a type of meditation on how our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs all express themselves in our moment to moment behaviors, choices, and reactions.
It is an adventure of self-exploration and we are here to support you with a jovial and understanding community, delicious recipes, and lifestyle practices that invite deeper insights.
- A straightforward seasonal protocol for 10 days that includes delicious recipes, meal plans, grocery lists, and Ayurvedic lifestyle practices
- Content that is season specific, including new recipes, and a different protocol from our springtime program
- Clear instructional videos which teach the fundamentals of cleansing, informative for beginners and adepts alike
- A guided yoga practice with Scott to support the cleansing practice
- Customization suggestions to address the root causes of current imbalances
- Simple Ayurvedic herbal supplement enhancement recommendations
- Live access and recordings of 2 conference calls with Scott to bring clarity, depth, and additional ayurvedic and yogic philosophy to your cleanse experience
- Access to the private course forum where you’ll find Q&A, photos and support from Scott, Cristina and the community of cleansers
The “official” cleanse dates are October 18-27th, but there is a window of October 16-30th for each participant to cleanse in 10 consecutive days that work best for them while still having access to the forum and live materials.
