APARIGRAHA = non-greed

Conscious and Mindful
Green Heiress Holistic Health practices a mindful approach to all we do. A claim of mindfulness brings with it a commitment to stop and think about how our words, actions, or deeds will affect another’s thoughts, feelings, and ultimately their soul. The Yogic Principle of "Ahimsa" is our first guiding principle - to “wish no harm,” and to stand as much as possible in full awareness of the intended and unintended consequences of our choices, and act with integrity and accountability.
In short, “Be kind whenever possible, and it’s always possible.” The Dalai Lama
