Intro to Ayurveda: Healing on Three Levels, Body Mind and Consicousness

with Dr Ramkumar, founder of Vaidyagrama healing village.

Ayurveda, India’s ancient healing system is a preventative means of maintaining health. The definition of health in Ayurveda takes into account not only the physical body, but the state of mind, nervous system, and ultimately, connection to a larger view of life. By understanding how human beings are affected by nature’s rhythms, Ayurveda teaches diet and lifestyle techniques to remain in balance on all three levels of being. Join Boston Ayurveda School and Dr Ramkumar for a discussion of how our diet and lifestyle may, or may not be, serving us and how to improve our quality of life.
