The hot oil Abhy massages specific to your dosha, made up for the gassy stomach and wicked, detox headaches. I wasn't buying it, especially the Primordial Sound meditation. To have to sit with the racing thoughts meditating in silence, no thanks. But, as the days went on, I noticed the smallest changes. I awoke in the morning happy on the inside, for the first time in ages. The muscles on my face softened, and I gave up the internal fight. Carlsbad, The Chopra Center and La Costa Resort and Spa are located in 'the sweet spot of the universe.' The majestic ocean, the mighty cliffs and dolphins are just minutes away. The Chopra Center, surrounded by lush grounds, palm trees, bougainvillea, and water fountains help calm the mind instantly. It's the perfect place to get back to basics, and in touch with your unique spirituality. A happy, tranquil, healthy person's beauty radiates effortlessly from within, shining brightly on their skin and everything around them.
We met Deepak, who was kind enough to stop and chat. Now, that's wicked cool. "Hangin' in Cali. with Deepak, healing my dosha and saying my mantra." What a lucky life experience, what a lovely, unforgettable week.
I'm home again, dreaming of the beach. I'm eating Ayurvedic meals, with the occasional Saturday cheat, drinking ginger tea, doing yoga, writing and working on my meditation. And passing less judgement, each day a bit closer to the prettiest me.
