Ayurvedic* study is relevant to anyone who desires good health and insight into the nature of life. In fact, the very words “ayur” and “veda” mean “science of life” – the same two words in Latin are “bio” and “logy” (“science of life-study”)! The information is apprehended easily in that we will be discussing principles of universal concern.
Ayurveda is a subset of the artava veda, hence it is deeply rooted in the ancient spirituality of India. It is truly “the medicine of yoga” because it fosters the evolution of one’s consciousness, as well as shedding light on lifestyle, asana and pranayama practice!
All lecture offerings below follow a format of presentation with handouts followed by a Q & A period. Sonam Targee is always a very thorough and engaging speaker, considerate of the participants’ level of experience.
Any of the listed subjects is available for any group, although we strongly advise that any group begin at the beginning with “Introduction to Ayurveda” or “Healing Remedies from the Kitchen” as their first taste of Ayurveda, which, as you know from our site, is a very diverse, and in –depth subject as well as healthy way of living!
Each lecture, unless otherwise indicated, is formatted to a 2.5-hr period for the presentation followed by a brief Q & A. For booking arrangements and payment information, please contact Ancient Universal Medicine at 585-256-1841.
