Ayurveda Webinar: Ancient Medicine for a Modern Age with Amber Lynn Vitale, BA, CN
Maybe you’ve heard the terms “Karma”, “Dharma” or “Vedas”. Maybe you’ve taken an on-line Dosha quiz (“Vatta”, “Pitta” or “Kapha”, anyone?) and heard that identifying as a certain constitutional type makes you more prone to raging in traffic.
Ayurveda is so much more–it’s an ancient and intelligent framework for understanding current day medicinal practices, utilizing herbs and food, as well as understanding our personality and body types. We can trace the history of Ayurveda over 5000+ years.
Ayurveda is known as the “Science or Knowledge of Life”. Ayus in Sanskrit means “life”, and Veda means “science or knowledge”. It teaches us how to live in balance: harmonizing mind, body, and spirit—extending our health and longevity to attain mastery, freeing ourselves from suffering and connecting with the divine that is always within us.
If you are completely new to Ayurveda, or if you have already been introduce to Ayurvedic elements but want to dive deeper, this is for you.
