The Navratri Restorative Cleanse
Prashanti de Jager & Rachael Breeze
March 30 - April 7, 2017

Durga”s attack

on the Demon Army

has dozens of symbols

that carry the ancient teachings

The Nine Nights of the Goddess

Navratri literally means ‘The Nine Nights’ and typically refers to a period of nine days at the vernal and autumnal junctures of the Seasons. 

Traditionally it is these nine days that are by far the most optimal time to cleanse and rejuvenate oneself. 

Navratri is also known as Devi Puja as metaphorically, it is the nine nights of the greatest Goddess Durga as she battles the greatest demons, or forces of imbalance, a legend redolent with meaning for us all.

Because all energy and mass is considered feminine, the word ‘Goddess’ here refers to basic principles of Nature that via cogent patterns of symbolism is anthropomorphized into a human woman.  In the case of Durga, she is the sum of all principles of nature, which is shown in the image here by drawing all ‘gods’ and ‘goddesses’ into her as her.

Of all the year, it is the equinoxes that are by far the best time to cleanse and restore

The Navratri Restorative Cleanse

Though accomplishing Navratri-esque restorative cleanses has been part of Yoga and Ayurveda since time immemorial, it seems to be relatively unknown now.

In 1990, living in India, I first ‘noticed’ the profound Ayurvedic side of Navratri.  Studying and practicing ‘religiously’ since I have accomplished 52 Navratri Restorative Cleanses in those 26 years. 

  1. Has 3000 years of experience behind it

  2. Aligned with Nature, Optimized by timing with Equinox

  3. Is a very easy yet profound process

  4. Both Cleanses and Restores

  5. One Navratri can be used to ‘set-up’ future Navratri’s

  6. Perfectly aligned with Ayurveda, Yoga, Jyotisha, Vastu

Indeed, Navratri Puja is typically practiced by hundreds of millions of people every year, and few practice or even know the ‘Ayurveda’ and Yoga facets of it, which are profound and very rewarding practices that create a basis of wellness and longevity.

There are dozens of insights available to us in this restorative cleanse, and once you start these practices you may never do any other type of ‘cleanse’ as the Navratri restorative cleanse tends to give ‘right context’ to all other cleanses.

Durga is the sum of all gods & goddesses

Much Basic Yogic Knowledge

Is yet to be ‘Known’ in the West

Because Ayurveda & Yoga are so 'young' in America, there is still so much 'basic' knowledge that is yet to finally 'emerge' here.

Since 1990, 26 years,  lived in India for a decade steeping in Yoga & Ayurveda and the Vedic Sciences and have studied and practiced over a dozen forms of Yoga with great Masters.

I am so happy to offer to you many of these wonderful insights that are woven into the Tradition in India, and yet, have not found their way to the West in a format readily digestible.

This is what this and most of my events are about. I guarantee your concept of 'Cleanse' will never be the same!

No more Confusing

Ineffective Cleanses

As a friend and a Clinician I am constantly hearing about people’s woes around confusing and/or ineffective cleanses. 

These classes will empower you with fundamental protocols and their rationale from which you can readily accomplish your own cleanses, to whatever depth you desire, all the while keeping in mind the basic yet seemingly forgotten context, which is restoration followed by rejuvenation.

People, I will show you excellent Liver Cleanses that are free, I will show you how to clean your brain, how to literally design your wellness.

What We Will Accomplish

You will be empowered to accomplish the

traditional equinox restorative cleanse that

is so fundamental to both Yoga and Ayurveda,

and see how it is superior to other ‘cleanses’

in so many ways, including the incredible

depth that is possible and the fact that the

‘cleanse’ facet is just one part of an overall

restorative protocol.  This knowledge is given via:

  1. presentations, 

  2. inspired discussion

  3. direct experience of some practices

  4. shown how to prepare Navratri meals

  5. hands-on how to make some of the herbal products that can assist

Each person will be shown how to optimize the cleanse for themselves for this year, and also design a protocol for the next 4 equinoxes on what tissue to restore when. With this cleanse we can go incredibly deep, into mind and the conditioning of your psyche that sets up myriad imbalances to manifest and congestions to accrue, and you will be shown how to determine this.  

What Navratri  Accomplish

Once you know this empowerment you simply accomplish it every equinox and thus you go deeper twice a year.  I have done it 52 times!  Many issues will not arise when this classic Seasonal routine is followed as it:

  1. clears the congestion, 

  2. open channels, 

  3. quells inflammation, 

  4. boosts metabolism, 

  5. clears psychological programs 

that are often at the root of Imbalance and then focuses on optimizing wellness, restoring core vitality.

Prashanti’s Veda Mandala Consultations & Sessions

Prashanti’s clinical forte/specialty is his ability to use many of the ‘Vedic sciences,’ from Ayurveda to Jyotisha (Vedic Astrology) to Hasta Samudrika (Vedic Palmistry) to Yoga to Vastu Shastra (Mother of Feng Shui) to Dhanurveda (the Yoga of Archery) to Advaita (non-dual knowledge), as well as his knowledge of cutting-edge cell physiology and molecular biology, to analyze, diagnose, treat and empower his clients. 

This powerful ‘confluence of factors’ is comparable to having a session with many different wellness guides all at once. 

He loves to support enduring True Wellness in his clients, regardless of the obstacles they face, and he tends to guide many whose wellness is especially challenged by relationships, thought, addictions, and less than optimal lifestyles. 

Special offer: 90 minute Consultation $108
