Dr. Sarita Shrestha is a classically trained Ayurveda physician from Kathmandu, Nepal with more than 25 years of clinical experience in hospitals, clinics, and rural health camps. She has received numerous prestigious awards for outstanding service and is renowned as Nepal’s first Ayurvedic OB/GYN, specializing in Ayurvedic women’s healthcare. She teaches in international institutes and hospitals, presents Ayurveda workshops worldwide and is fast becoming recognized as the “Mother” of Ayurveda in the West. She has been teaching in the U.S. since 2000.

In Ayurveda, the woman is considered to be “Shakti”; the Mother and Source of creation, in whose lap all of civilization is cradled. When we speak about “women’s health” we understand that this encompasses many different issues during the different stages of her life. Every woman goes through a series of profound changes during her lifetime.

Whatever the situation, women must always take into consideration their constitutional needs regarding diet, lifestyle and rest. Ayurveda provides a rich and thorough body of herbal medicinal knowledge as a powerful tool to achieve this balance, when needed.  It is said that when we restore balance, we are happy in our minds, healthy in our bodies and satisfied in our lives!

During her brief stay in Dallas, Dr. Sarita Shrestha is conducting a private women’s wellness workshop on May 27 and May 28 and there are limited openings for private consultations.  For more information and any further inquiries, please contact her student, Sapna Punjabi-Gupta at or call at 214-616-8592.

Realizing Essence through Compassion with David Breaux
Sep 23 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm


The Crow Collection, Compassionate DFW, and the Compassion Council of the Dallas Arts District present David H. Breaux in dialogue in our galleries.

Please join us for an exploration of how to create more compassion in the world and in ourselves! Join us for a talk and Q&A with David Breaux on realizing essence through compassion. Breaux will share a few words on pure compassion, the recognition of true self, and the sharing of wisdom and will be followed by Q&A. The themes he will touch on include the body-mind nature, suffering, spirit, identification with false thoughts and beliefs, and how to alleviate suffering. 


Bio: David H. Breaux compassionately guides people to their ever-present, true Self. In 2009, he began asking people to share their written concept of the word “compassion” in a notebook, receiving over 11,000 responses. In 2014, he traveled for a year on The Compassion Tour, visiting 13 different communities throughout the US asking people about compassion and facilitating compassion discussions. Coming from Davis, California, he now answers questions for those seeking liberation. Through this sharing of wisdom, many feel inspired to make the necessary changes in their lives. Space is provided for people who yearn to alleviate their suffering, bringing about inner peace, openness, grace, joy, and love. Through presence and compassion gatherings, he invokes a stable transformation, compelling others to discover the light within themselves.


This event is part of Compassion Games International.
