Living Wisdom: The Foundations in Ayurveda

What is Living Wisdom?

I am a Medical Herbalist and an Ayurvedic Practitioner and as one of the few Ayurvedic practitioners in the UK I have seen the ever-increasing popularity of Yoga raise awareness of its sister science, Ayurveda. With its emphasis on preventative health, healing and promotion of longevity, Ayurveda is more than a system of medicine, it is a way of life that aims to enhance well-being through the union of physical, emotional and spiritual health.

Feedback from my books ‘The Ayurveda Bible’ and ‘Dispensing with Tradition’, made me realise that there was a need for an easily accessible, yet in-depth, introduction to Ayurveda. So, I collaborated with my friend and American polarity therapist, Gina Mastroluca, and in 2015 we launched our online course Living Wisdom: The Foundations of Ayurvedawww.learnlivingayurveda.com.

Living Wisdom offers a comprehensive introduction to the principles and practices of Ayurveda based on my extensive experience presenting Eastern philosophy in an accessible way for the Western mind. The course has been carefully structured to appeal to a range of people including yoga teachers, herbal practitioners, nutritional therapists and medical professionals, while still being accessible to everyone interested in improving their health and wellbeing. Covering 700 pages of Ayurvedic nutrition, herbal medicine, sattvic lifestyle and meditation practices over eight online modules, students will have access to online student forums, plus optional seasonal workshops to support their studies and journey through the course.

The course is only £395 for access to all eight modules for 18 months.  For more information please call the clinic on 01451 810096.

Valldemossa

PLANTS, HEALTH AND NATURE IN VALLDEMOSSA, MAJORCA

5th-9th November 2015

I am thrilled to be teaming up with my good friend Ana Azcárate to offer a small number of people the chance to join us on our new Plants, Health and Nature sojourn in Valldemossa, Majorca. We would like invite you to spend four days exploring the magnificent mountain areas of the Tramuntana, identifying the medical herbs growing there and learning how to prepare and use them for their amazing health benefits.  It is a really good time of year for plants as November is Majorca’s second spring – the autumn rains will have restored green to the parched island with a fresh burst of growth and life to the local plant world.

Ana Azcárate knows the area well and will be teaching the course alongside me.  Ana has studied herbs, natural cosmetics, aromatherapy, massage, nutrition, Ayurveda and biodynamic agriculture and is currently studying naturopathy at the Instituto de Estudios Naturales (IEN) in Madrid. She is the editor of a health and ecology imprint in Spain and one of the founders of Unabotánica, a natural cosmetic company in Caracas, Venezuela.
