On Friday, November 9, 2018, we hosted our Annual Member's Meeting at Shift Workspaces in Denver.
A delicious, nutritious dinner was served by Little India, and we were treated to nourishing herbal beverages provided by Organic India and Guayaki.
In honor of International Ayurveda Day, which was recognized earlier in the week, Alakananda Ma told the story, as only she can, of Dhanvantari arising from the ocean of milk holding the pot of eternal amrita. The video of this is now available in the Members' Library.
COLORAMA President Heather Baines provided exciting updates on our legal and legislative efforts to protect and promote Ayurveda in Colorado. There will be more to report on this historic issue soon.
The primary business item of our annual meeting is to elect board members. This year we had three available seats and three qualified candidates. Akacia Pulaski and David McConaghay were re-elected for another three years, and Ruca Love was elected to complete the remaining two years of the seat vacated by Sebastian Urrea.
We are grateful for the many significant contributions Sebastian made in his year on the board, and look forward to his ongoing support on the Membership committee.
Ruca is an Ayurvedic Practitioner, E-RYT 500 and Licensed Massage Therapist. She is currently working towards her Ayurvedic Doctor certification at Alandi Ashram and leads Yoga for 12-Step Recovery classes in Boulder. We are very grateful for her willingness to serve the COLORAMA mission and enthusiastically welcome her onto the Board of Directors.
It was a wonderful event celebrating the Ayurveda community, and there is much to look forward to in the near future!
