Full Day Creating Coherence Course for TM Sidhi Practitioners
Monthly
Hastings Coherence Creating Centre
37 Hodgins Road.

Cost: Paid-up members of Hastings Coherence Association, $15

Lunch: $15 – please RSVP 5979 3901 or 0410 546 494



If you haven’t yet been on a Coherence-Creating Day we invite you to join us. The greater wellbeing and increased ‘support of Nature’ you’ll experience are very tangible.


This Sunday we will be starting a new and deeply restful rounding program. Come and enjoy a special day which will include knowledge from Maharishi and a delicious lunch.

* TM and the TM-sidhi program create coherence for the individual and for society. It is vital to maximise this life-supporting effect for the world and its future.

* The most profound influence is generated by group practice. This is the square of the number in the group, not just the sum. So priority is always the largest possible group, preferably regular and permanent.

* Location of group programs can also increase coherence. Fortune Creating Homes Consultant Mike Lyons explains: “The effect of Hastings Coherence Creating Programs will be enhanced. They will build upon the existing coherence of the area which is closely in accordance with the principles of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda and the underlying fundamental harmony of Natural Law.”

* The Coherence Creating Community developing in Hastings is an initiative by TM-Meditators, -Sidhas and Governors, to enhance TM’s benefits through vastu (ideal house placement) and group practice of TM/-sidhis.

Maharishi Ayurveda Spring Newsletter
Seasonal Update

Maharishi Ayurveda views the human body as a microcosm. Every cell of the body is the universe in miniature, governed by the same laws of nature. As the seasons change we can adjust our diet, and behavior to fit in with the changing rhythms of nature and maintain balance. Spring is predominated by the dosha, Kapha. During spring excess kapha is characterisd by a wet cough and accumulated mucous in the lungs and sinus.
Kapha is cold, heavy, oily and smooth – so in accord with dosha theory we increase the opposite value to bring balance-hence warm dry things are recommended to reduce kapha. Favor foods that are warm, well-cooked and non-oily. Avoid excess sweets, cold drinks and food and heavy dairy products like yogurt and aged cheeses. Overeating increases kapha, so moderate amounts* are best. During spring favor kapha balancing apples, apricots, berries, cherries, cranberries, figs(dry)*, grapes*, lemons*, pears, persimmons, pomegranates, prunes, raisins and strawberries*. Also artichoke, asparagus, beets, broccoli, sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, cilantro, corn, daikon, radish, fennel, green beans, Jerusalem artichoke, leafy greens, mustard greens and okra. Be sure to keep your head covered against cold winds and showers as they can aggravate kapha. Daytime sleep disturbs kapha so rise early, before 7 am.
Moderate exercise and morning sun exposure in spring helps decrease kapha so an early morning walk is ideal.

Maharishi Ayurveda Products

New products have arrived and these are available to purchase from the mornington Centre by mail, after group meditations and by appointment.
New Spice mixes have gone all organic at the same old price!!
Allergy Protection(for all your friends and family with hay fever) Digest Balance and Cholesterol Balance just to name a few.

Maharishi Honey, UMF 15 tested against a well established brand and found to have effects lasting for 1 hr at body temperature as compared to the leading brand which looses its integrity and effect at body temp after just 15mins. Maharishi honey is produced in SA and has a great taste.

Sniffle Free tea is a great product for Springtime, when the weather warms up excess kapha accumulated in winter ‘melts’, this tea and spice blend can balance liquidification of Kapha and prevent it turning into a runny nose, congestion and cough.

Vata, pitta and kapha teas will also go organic from 1st October at the same regular price!

Spring Recipes

What are we eating right now?
Kapha dosha is balanced with pungent, bitter and astringent tastes. Lentils, fruits and vegetables are great. My family are enjoying this protein rich yet light dish for lunches or light dinners, its quick, nutritious and easy.
Red Lentil and Quinoa Kitcheree
Rinse 1/1/2 ups organic red lentils, add 1/2 cup organic quinoa grain and filtered cold water to cover plus 3cm. Bring to boil and simmer for 15 mins removing white scum with large spoon and discarding. In a separate pot melt on medium to low flame- heat 3 teaspoons ghee, add 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger cook 1 minute then add one at a time allowing each to infuse its flavor , 1 teaspoon fennel seeds, 1 teaspoon ground coriander, and pinch of turmeric in this order. Add spice and ghee mix to lentils plus 1-2 teaspoons Ayurvedic Salt. Steamed vegaetables can be added now if desired. Cook low heat for 5 minutes add fresh parsley or coriander leaves and enjoy! Serves 4.

Health Consultations at change of season :Spring is Kapha time.

Change of Season Ayurveda check-ups are particularly valuable, impurities accumulated in Winter carry into spring and impact deeper into the tissues, sowing the seeds for future disease. Seasonal consultations, just before the change of season, are essential to break this cycle. Nadi-Vigyan-traditional pulse diagnosis identifies imbalances in the dosha’s then Ayurvedic rejuvenation massage and herbal rejuvenation treatments are individualised to remove impurities-(ama) and excess dosha thereby promoting health and longevity. Pulse diagnosis can identify disease in its earliest stages long before any symptoms surface. Consultations are suitable for children, the elderly and healthy individuals wanting to improve their health status.
Spring is Kapha time-predominated by the elements of earth and water. How does Kapha operate in your body? Kapha governs structure and fluid balance-forming muscle, fat, bone and sinew. These functions will be in balance with kapha dosha is balanced. Colds, Hay fever, sniffles and snuffed up sinus. All that excess vata you accumulated in winter ( sedentary lifestyle, heavier- sweeter foods, less sunlight), left unchecked, can now imbalance functions kapha presides over. Below is a good checklist. If you notice any of these symptoms it will be especially useful to make time for a seasonal check up- remember prevention is better than a cure.Kapha governs: Tarpaka kapha:moisture of mouth,nose,eyes and brain. Bhodaka kapha: Sense of taste, which is essential for good digestion. Kledaka kapha: moisture of the stomach lining. Avalumbaka kapha: protects the heart, strong muscles and healthy lungs. Sleshaka kapha: lubrication of the joints, soft and supple skin.When out of balance Kapha causes: sinus congestion, poor sense of smell. Poor sense of taste, food cravings due to lack of fulfillment. Impaired digestion, poor absorption, lethargy, respiratory problems, lower back pain, weight gain, oily skin and loose or painful joints.
