“Spend time with your tribe. Having like-minded people who lift you up will change the trajectory of your path much faster than anything you can will in yourself.”

Jennifer Ayres


Welcome to another special mid-week conversation lifted from our recent retreat in Italy featuring Colin Hudon and Jennifer Ayres.

Wise beyond his years, Colin is a physician of Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as a talented herbalist, acupuncturist, tea master, and founder of Living Tea, which sources and imports the finest and rarest old-growth teas and teaware in the world.

A gift to humanity, Jennifer is an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner and teacher certified by perhaps the world’s most lauded Ayurvedic doctor, writer, and teacher Dr. Vasant Lad.

Longtime listeners will recall both of these friends and incredible humans have previously graced the show. If you’re new to the podcast and enjoy today’s exchange I urge you to check out Colin & Jennifer together in an episode entitled Heal Thyself (RRP #261) and Colin alone from (RRP #319).

Today they reunite to share a wide variety of insights on the benefits of supplementing our Western approach to medicine with ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic approaches to holistic health, disease prevention and healing. We discuss the similarities and differences between these respective approaches and enetertain audience Q&A on many other finer points of mindfully optimizing functional well-being.

I get absolutely nothing out of this other than the satisfaction that you will enjoy incredible tea.

Live Screening & Podcast Event: At 7:30 pm on August 23 I will be hosting a premiere screening of Running For Good: The Fiona Oaks Story at the Laemmle Royal Theatre in West Los Angeles. It’s a beautiful portrait of an amazing and under appreciated athlete and activist by Cowspiracy and What The Health director Keegan Kuhn. Immediately following the screening I will be conducting a live in-theatre podcast with both Fiona and Keegan. It’s going to be a great evening and tickets are going fast, so grab them now here.

It was an honor to have Colin and Jennifer join us on retreat and it is my pleasure to share their copious wisdom with you today.

Peace + Plants,
