Ayurveda is the traditional natural healing system of India and the yogic form of medicine going back over five thousand years. It is now recognized as one of the most important systems of mind-body medicine available. Its popularity is spreading throughout the world. Ayurveda offers a complete and comprehensive method of healing and rejuvenation. Ayurveda uncovers and heals the cause of illness; it doesn't merely treat the symptoms. Further, with its knowledge of the doshas (Vayu or Vata, Pitta, Kapha), it is a very personal approach to health. Thus, a very gentle and natural healing process occurs. Ayurvedic training covers theory, therapies, spiritual foundations of healing, and hands-on training. Therapies include herbology, nutrition, aromatherapy, yoga, meditation, mantra therapy, music, color, and gem therapies, life-purpose (dharma) counseling, spiritual counseling, and much more.

Ayurveda considers all aspects of healing from diet and herbs to mantra and meditation as a complete holistic system of medicine. It is truly the medicine of the coming planetary age, with almost no limits to its growth and application in the modern health situation, where Ayurvedic like methods of disease prevention and proper life-style are becoming the main considerations for everyone.


This comprehensive program covers all the main aspects of Ayurvedic theory, diagnosis and practice. It has a special emphasis on herbal medicine, using western as well as Indian herbs, providing an accessible model for treatment in the West. It explains diet and food in great detail as well.

The course adds to these physical modalities a higher dimension of Yoga and Ayurvedic psychology, showing an integral mind-body approach that includes spiritual and psychological methods, with colors, aromas, gems, asana, pranayama, mantra and meditation.

There is almost no aspect of life that the course does not address in a practical way for healing and transformation. It is not merely introductory but goes into great depth into its subject and will remain as an excellent reference guide for the student for years to come.
