Initial Ayurveda Consultation
Discover the ways you hold yourself back from living a life of true vitality and freedom. Meredith’s unique approach focuses on uncovering the resistances to you taking care of yourself in a way that is beneficial, kind, and compassionate. Together, you’ll create an individualized program that fosters gentleness, clarity, and health in your body, mind, and spirit using both Embodied Harmony Practices combined with receiving deeply restorative and detoxifying treatments. When in-person, your consultation includes Nadi Vigyan or Pulse Diagnosis.
Followup Ayurveda Consultation
It’s key to receive ongoing support when it comes to change. Otherwise, our minds slip back into autopilot and make wonderful excuses to keep us in our blocks and resistances! If you want to change, you need regular support, ideally at least once a month, if not more. Our minds are very slippery and love to stay on their own track. In fact, deep change is a threat to our minds, so most of us avoid staying on track, especially when things get difficult and when we face challenges. Meredith knows the lay of the land when it comes to change and transformation very well and will help you stay on track with your individualized program. When in-person, your consultation includes Nadi Vigyan or Pulse Diagnosis.
Herbal and Pulse Followup Consultation
(Must be Ayurvedically Indicated)
If you’re on a steady track and you need a quick tune-up or refocus, you are welcome to have a 30-minute Herbal or Pulse Diagnosis Followup Consultation.

Panchakarma: Cleansing & Rejuvenation Wellness Retreat Programs
Options: 1-Day, 3-Day, and 5-Day
Panchakarma is a cleansing and rejuvenating program in Ayurveda. Your Panchakarma begins with a month of preparatory dietary and herbal guidelines so that the toxins can be gently and easily removed from your body-mind when your treatments begin. One thing that makes Ayurveda and this process so special is that it includes a deep preparation before the detox. If this preparation is skipped or not taken seriously, then toxins can be driven more deeply into your system. Panchakarma can heal many deeply-seated imbalances if approached in this traditional way.
One month before your treatments, your program will begin with an Initial Consultation where you will learn your specific preparatory dietary and herbal guidelines. Then, a week before treatments, you’ll have a follow-up consultation where you’ll learn how to deepen your preparation.
Your treatments are specifically indicated for your situation and may include any of the above treatments. There’s also an option for you to have individualized Ayurvedic lunch and dinner so you can fully relax and receive.
This whole Panchakarma process is very special and deeply healing and rejuvenating. It is designed to slow life down, to facilitate receptivity, gentleness and clarity and to return the recipient back to themselves.
