Is Ayurveda like a master set of keys to understanding (and so working with) the relationship crisis that is – often – to be found going on inside of ourselves (all the way down to the cells) and in the world at large? Are they one and the same crisis and is the solution more simple than we ever thought? In this post, I explore the Ayurvedic doshas and how they relate to each other inside the human being and in the far wider field of human relationships. I propose that the matter of coming into balance could be as simple as getting these three doshas into the working relationship with each other that they were always intended to have.
As well as this post, there are several other exploratory articles about Ayurveda in the series including A thing about mornings, Vata-dosha and electrosensitivity, Wanting to land: working with vata dosha, Grounded: a healing journey working with the principles of Ayurveda and Getting to know your dosha.

I know, I know, I keep coming back to Ayurveda but its like finding a master set of keys to all the doors. I’ve been noticing how the three fundamental dosha types (those three constitutions that people can be loosely grouped into, according to Ayurveda) apply to all things, from lifestyle choices and social behaviours, to all those emotional, physical and energetic traits that profoundly impact our wellbeing.
In particular, I’ve been noticing how the doshas rub along together in their relationships (inside and out) and these are some of the astonishingly consistent observations I’ve been making. The scope of this topic is relative to all levels of human existence, from the cellular right up to the political and beyond; which is how core the material feels and how universal the trends I am noticing seem to be, making them relevant and useful across all aspects of human existence.
