The experience of emotional and mental balance in Ayurveda is called Sattvavijayanti. In Sanskrit, Sattva - balance, from the root word, sat which means truth. The meaning of Vijayanti is victory, so it's the victory of balance and truth over non-truth or ingorance which causes suffering. A Sattvavijayanti Session addresses the mind, emotions, behavior, relationships, sleep, and mental potential. It helps support an experience of silent witnessing and the capacity to enjoy a more unified perception. It helps to lessen the experience of being overshadowed with a part of the self that is suffering in some way.
