I hope over the holidays you have time to tap into you, and your self care. Today, to inspire that, I talk with Shel Pink, who built the brand, Spa Ritual, a self-care product brand based in Ayurveda. She’s recently launched a book, Slow Beauty, which shares rituals and recipes to feed the body and nourish the soul. It’s a beautiful book, very inspiring, and very down to earth Ayurveda--it is very accessible to those who are not - yet - very into Ayurveda.


I rap with Shel Pink about self care:

  • Tune in to the ease, simplicity, and lack of barriers of an Ayurvedic self-care practice
  • Understand how to build in the seasonal and fluid nature of self-care rhythms and rituals


What you'll get out of tuning in:

  • Slow Beauty as a form of meditation / The “Spiritualization of Beauty”
  • “How To” – Slow Beauty mapping
  • Daily/weekly/monthly rituals to form your slow beauty practice
  • Anti-anti-aging – Holding youth rather than growing old


Show Highlights:

  • 9:02 – Do you read the labels on your skin care products such as sunscreen?
  •  12:53 – Self care is for everyone. Price should not be a barrier to self care and the philosophy behind Slow Beauty.
  •  17:00 – Cate and Shel discuss mapping a seasonal and changing self-care practice.
  •  21:12 – How do we deal with overwhelm as we try to align to the stately, slow beauty of self care in the high-paced modern world?
