Free workshop: Ayurveda and the use of aromatic and medicinal plants
Come and enjoy a free mini workshop about Ayurveda and the use of aromatic and medicinal plants which will take place on Friday 14 September 5 pm (2-3 hours) with Lawrence Body.
Ayurveda can be translated as the science of long life. However, this definition falls far short of what ayurveda really is. The objective of this thousands of year old Indian medicine is to live life to the full by fulfilling ones hopes, dreams and purpose. Being a holistic science it works on body, mind and spirit. Through the 5 senses we enter on a journey to wholeness and health. We enjoy “touch” learning how to massage with warm aromatic oils. Through the sense of taste we learn how to prepare and follow a diet adequate for our body type. We incorporate exercise and daily routines most suited to our constitution and lifestyle. We travel through the seasons and years discovering how we can interact with nature and be in harmony with natural cycles.
Through yoga, meditation, mantra and chakra work we contact with our innerselves and balance mind and body. We discover how our basic constitutions known in ayurveda as vata, pitta and kapha influence our thoughts, emotions and actions and hence become more able to understand ourselves and facilitate this awareness in others.
This introductory free workshop will give you an insight into what ayurveda can do for you. Furthermore as ayurveda relies greatly on aromatic and medicinal plants you will also find out what other disciplines such as aromatherapy and plant alchemy can offer you, as an individual or therapist, as complementary routes to holistic wellbeing.
