Hi, I'm Danielle Archer

Āyurveda has been part of a deep unfolding within me. I came to this practice almost as if by accident. I was a student of Japan when I fell in love with Indian film, and then I started cooking Indian food, and then I kept coming across this word in cookbooks: Āyurveda. After a few years I decided to dig a little deeper, and things in my life began to shift...

As a student of culture, I am fascinated by the ways in which the environments that we live in impact our sense of self, our ability to thrive, our health and wellbeing. Āyurveda considers this relationship between the environment, the universal whole, and the self, and it helps us to understand the ways that they influence us on physical, spiritual, and emotional levels.

My relationship with Āyurveda, Jyotish, and Yogic teachings is rooted in and grounded by these traditions as they are taught by my teachers. As a seeker, I strive to connect with what is important, with what is real and true. I look to dismantle learned behaviors that do not serve truth, habits inherited through unnatural systems that thrive on dependence. I believe that it is necessary to examine these habits if we aspire to be grounded in the essence of being, to live in alignment with the truth of who we really are.
