The Path of Practice : A Woman's Book of Ayurvedic Healing
Through this text, Bri Maya Tiwari provides an holistic programme designed for women by a woman. Diagnosed with ovarian cancer at 23, Bri Maya Tiwari was given two months to live. Abandoning her career as a popular fashion designer in New York, she retreated to the countryside to heal herself using the Ayurvedic tools of nutrition, meditation and chanting. The stories of Bri Maya's life, and those of others who have made these simple but powerful Ayurvedic practices an integral part of their lives, should help to inspire you to learn how to take charge of your own health.
