2017-04-14 Ananta Ripa Ajmera - Awaken to Health with Ayurveda, the World’s Oldest Healing System 1:48:30
Join Ananta, author of The Ayurveda Way (Storey Publishing, 2017) as she introduces you to Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga, and the world’s oldest healing system. Ayurveda’s mindful lifestyle practices greatly complement and enhance insight meditation. Buddha’s own physician was an Ayurveda doctor named Jivak. And while many know Ayurveda in terms of its three doshas (mind-body types), there is a lot more to this holistic preventative healthcare system. Ayurveda is the first holistic science to define health as a four-dimensional state of wellbeing of body, mind, spirit, and the five senses. It takes a whole-systems, integrated approach that addresses these four dimensions of a human being simultaneously. Ayurveda teaches that health is our birthright, and that it exists at the core of each person, though hidden at times by disease and distress. In this workshop, Ananta will teach you how to start awakening to radiant health with: A simple, yet potent way to improve your digestion, and enhance your meditation practice, mental clarity, creativity and enthusiasm in daily life. A time-tested mindful eating practice that will allow you to enhance your experience of meditative moments throughout your day. A 5-10 minute evening ritual that will help you destress and sleep like a baby.
