What’s New This October

We Continue to Work Towards “Zero Waste”


Invoking a Zen attitude of mind, we are inspired to work together in community and environmental consciousness towards making Zero Waste our reality. Our campaign is about causing minimal harm within and around us, consuming with awareness, taking Collective Responsibility, for the “wake” we leave behind. BE is a space to practice, imbibe and express this consciousness.

Join us to live the mantra: Reuse, Recycle, Reduce (your footprint)!

  • Bring your own mug and enjoy beverage offerings at BE
  • Before disposing garbage take a moment to consider reusing and recycling responsibly
  • Care for mother Earth, use, consume and experience with care and gratitude


BE Kirtan Lovers!

Here’s what else is on this month:

Ayurvedic Cleansing & Mind Calming Herbs at BE

Pancha Kriya Certified Organic Herbs are now available at B.E.

According to ancient Ayurvedic yogic practises, the two main herbs that are used daily for cleansing the system and balancing the vital energies are Neem Leaf and Haritaki Fruit.

Neem Leaf tea is used to clean the mouth , the intestines and detoxify the liver. It also promotes healthy hair + skin.

Harataki Fruit tea nourishes all body tissues, improves digestion, promotes the absorption of nutrients, aids in expelling accumulated waste, increases oxygen levels in the blood up to 300% and activates the non-mechanical parts of the brain. For centuries Haritaki has been called “king of the medicines” by Ayurvedic healers. 

For further information including other certified organic Ayurvedic herbs (Holy Basil/Tulsi, Triphala, Tumeric), please visit the YAHpothecary online.
