Ayurvedic Rituals for The Postpartum Mother
with Aparna Khanolkar
a snippet: Talking with Aparna is a poignant experience every time. I’ve been studying Ayurveda for a long time, and each time I listen to her or speak with her I gain new insight. We had a very lovely heartfelt conversation, and I’m feeling so empowered by my role as a woman. We spoke about worthiness, rites of passage, ritual and blisssss. I hope you enjoy!
