Autumn Cleanse Class 2
Time & Location
About The Event
The awesome thing about Ayurveda is you don’t need a man-made calendar to tell you when to do things! You can listen to your body and the world around you. Nature does its own cleanse in Fall when the deciduous trees and plants lose their leaves, and seasonal plants die off. Animals prepare in various ways. The weather starts to cool. You may feel some changes in your body, such as changes in your appetite, energy or body temperature. This is when it is time to cleanse. This will depend where you live in the World, for Northern Hemisphere the proper time for cleansing is typically September 1st – October 31st.
Cleansing with the waning moon can be very powerful. In this modern era its even more important to find a time when you can be as relaxed as possible.
Not working is ideal, but if you have to work, try not to take on anything extra. Travelling and cleansing rarely goes well unless you are going to a relaxing destination specifically to cleanse. I try to find a time when I don’t have a lot of social engagements or my favorite holiday. The perfect time is going to be a little bit different for everyone.
4 Days of “Pre-Cleanse” - ‘week 1’
4 Days of “Main Cleanse” - ‘week 2’
4 Days of “Post-Cleanse” - ‘week 3’
*If time allows, each phase can be extended as long as 7 days. Doing less than 4 days will not have the same benefit.
If we are moving gently with the seasons, it is nice to gently and gradually flow into the habits of the pre-cleanse. If this is a new thing for you, it is probably going to be a little more clunky, especially the first few times. Remember: any effort is better than no effort!
