How to create a Kuti Experience in your home.
By Dr. Bryan Miller
The purpose of a Kuti Pravesika experience is to go deeply within and contact your “source” where everything is known, available and possible. This is where healing, rejuvenation and reconnection to purpose occur. This is accomplished by withdrawal of sensory input and distractions. There are 3 areas to plan for your Kuti experience: The Program, The Space and The Support Team.
This includes what you eat, drink and any activities you make available such as Yoga and Meditation. Fresh extracted juices are cleansing and rejuvenating. A formula may include a combination of some of the following: carrot, celery, apple, fennel, cilantro, parsley, ginger, cucumber, beet, etc. It is recommended to take 2 – 4 cups pero day. Choose according to your Ayurvedic Body Type and personal needs. Select specific herb teas, in this way also, Ayurveda has a list of Rasayana herbs and preparations. Examples could include: Bhrami, Chavanprash, Ginseng, Ashagwanda, Tulsi and Cardamon, it is recommended to take 2-4 cups per day. One modest meal a day is recommended for long experiences; short ones could include some fasting or juice fasting. Colon cleansing should be done preparatory to your start. A sample meal could be steamed veggies and 1/2 avocado. Plan on journaling, doing yoga and meditating.
Prepare whatever you need for those practices.
Kuti Pravesika requires darkness, quiet and stillness. Prepare a room (preferably with an attached bath) for your exprerience. Remove everything except essentials, clean it deeply, cover windows and doors with blankets to block out light. You will want a bed or mattress for sleeping, a rug for yoga (plus your mat), hygiene supplies (toothbrush, shampoo, etc), a small shelf or table, a small cooler for drinks, unlimited water (spring), a ghee lamp for occasional light (it is healilng to the eyes), pillows, sheets, towels, etc.
The Support Team
Select someone to prepare and deliver your drinks, teas & food daily. It is also ideal to receive a massage daily (optional). Be sure to have phones disconnected, pay your bills and place notes on door and advise your friends and family that you are going inside and very important, why?… Other than these contacts you are on your own…enjoy your inner vacation.
If these preparations seem to much for you, we can arrange Kuti Experiences in a quiet Condo in South Florida for $2500 per day, depending on the treatments received.
