Discovering Ayurveda: Natural Mind/Body Healing
Experience the powerful connection between the mind and body and environment. Give yourself tools to regain the balance, joy and a feeling of optimal health using the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda.
The Ayurvedic approach to health and wellness dates back over 5000 years with its roots in ancient India. It suggests that health is not just the absence of disease; it’s a vibrant balance and integration of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of our lives.
From the Ayurvedic perspective, every person is born with aspects that mirror the natural elements: air, ether/space, fire, water, and earth. These elements are expressed in every individual's mind and body in various proportions and are called doshas. Identify your unique make-up of nature's elements is and how to make more nourishing choices and create a harmonious connection with the world “out there”.
Restore balance and discover what mind/body health really is in a course developed by Perfect Health author, Deepak Chopra. Using the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, you’ll discover your own mind/body type (dosha); find a daily routine suited to creating optimal health, and how to use food and aromas as medicine. The ancient secrets and natural approaches of Ayurveda can be easily integrated into your active lifestyle and you’ll make more nourishing choices, achieve the healing and vibrancy you desire, and experience the transformation you seek. You'll learn to:
- Identify your Ayurvedic constitutional mind/body type –your dosha - and imbalances which might be present.
- Use specific aromas, tastes, sounds, color therapy, and touch therapies to bring about balance.
- Maximize nourishment and digestion.
