This eight-module course offers immersion into a way of seeing the world from which you will never return. The ancient science of Ayurveda explains the ecosystem of our body-minds in the world around us, using concepts that have survived through millenia because they work.
Using observable concepts in Nature, Ayurveda introduces methods for understanding our lives, improving our health, and anchoring our mind. Through rituals of day-night, moons, and seasons, we can rediscover how jumping onto the carousel of the earth’s cycles can heal the body and mind.
Your body is your laboratory. We will experiment with oils, water, fruits, fire, herbs, music, mantra, smells, stones, and touch to engage our awareness, drop the judgment and move into discovery. Dr. Bhaswati Bhattacharya guides a course through the fundamental concepts of Ayurveda and introduces practical applications for you to prove to yourself how well it can work in your own life, wherever you are.
