Pancha: Creativity

During the cleanse, instead of being burnt out on eating only kitchari, I enjoyed the opportunity to find new ways to add complimentary vegetables to the dish. I roasted and pureed winter squashes for the first time; I ate more vegetables than I typically do and intestinally felt good doing so. Likewise, when I needed to break a sweat during the external oleation component of the cleanse, I embraced the opportunity to practice jumping rope, something that I have been wanting to do for years but had put off. From within these prescribed situations I was able to find lightness and play. Instead of feeling hindered by the panchakarma process, I found it as an invitation to explore within a new regime.
