Cate had been working in global change politics in Washington, D.C. She was called to study natural healing to help people become more awake to their bodies and their ecosystems so they could make better decisions for their own health and the health of the planet.
She connected most with yoga and Ayurveda, yoga’s sister science of health and healing. She went through an intense period of studying both, learning a very traditional approach.
These practices revolutionized her connection to herself and the world around her. While she started out following the prescribed habits as she was taught, she came to connect with these habits at a new, deeper level, transforming them from habits to practices.
Listen to Cate’s story of how she learned these Ayurvedic health habits, how she has worked with them over time, and how they have become her daily practices so she can share herself and her work with the world
