Online Introduction to Ayurveda Workshop with Komal Dadlani
Our health is a precious balance, energetically curated by our astral body and the 5 elements that reside in it: ether, air, water, fire an earth. In these two workshops, you will awaken to your body’s self-healing abilities, as per the laws of Ayurveda, or “The Knowledge of Nature”. We will explore the laws that govern Nature itself, as well as its rhythms and influence in your physiology and state of being.
Though embedded in profound theoretical background, the purpose of these sessions is to empower you with practical understanding of how Ayurveda operates, so that you can self-regulate on the basis of your symptoms and individual constitution, which you will be guided into discovering during our discussion.
Our study will be divided into two days, with 4 different modules:
What is Ayurveda and where does it come from?
Ayurveda is knowledge in regards to Nature and our physiological and spiritual relationship with it. It was revealed to rishis and sages in a high state of consciousness known as samadhi. We will revise its origins and main texts/teachers, to situate our study.
The 5 elements and their manifestation in the body
All 5 elements of nature have their place in our physical and astral body, influencing our appearance, psychological traits, character and physiological strengths. For example, air is a creative engine for the arts and speech; whereas fire, provides glow and shine to our eyes and skin. Similarly, a person that has more fire than another, will enjoy the benefits of a better digestion, but a person with more earth, might not so much. During this module, we will distill each element, with its attributes and impact in all aspects of our constitution, so as to identify their presence and location in our own bodies.
We will revise the laws that regulate illness and favor healing, as well as dive deep into the Ayurvedic Clock and other healing principles and tools to restore balance and self-regulate emotion and physical ailments. In Ayurveda, symptoms are viewed as a “form of healing”, rather than “disease”. We explore this notion and how to leverage physical imbalance to our favor.
Your Constitution & Lifestyle
Key to self-regulation and empowerment is to understand one’s own “Ayurvedic Constitution” or Prakruti, that is: “how much air, fire, earth exists in my own body?” We will “test” ourselves on various indicators to determine this and get started on our self-healing journey, as well as explore various lifestyle suggestions and enhancements for better sleep, mood, digestion, hormonal balance, concentration and other softer skills.
When: December 10th & 11th from 12pm – 2pm EST both days
Where: Online via Zoom
Cost: $30 per session $50 for both sessions
