Introduction to Ayurveda and holistic Approaches
The traditional Indian art of healing, “Ayurveda”, is literally translated from Sanskrit as life (ayus) and knowledge (veda), and describes a holistic view and way of life. All life processes appear in constant change and can be seen as flowing energy. A closer look at the elements air, fire, water and earth reveals this. In order to make recommendations and promote a healthy balance, in the language of Ayurveda the attributes of these elements are also represented in the so-called „Doshas“ (Vatta, Pitta and Kapha). Furthermore “Agni” describes the principle of the digestive fire and “Bala” the principles of strength, vitality, stamina and immunity. Toxins (in Ayurveda „Aam“) can affect all of this and lead to physical, mental and emotional blockages and dis-eases. In this lecture you will learn about these principles and how they simply can support us to live a healthy life.
Singing Bowl Sound Meditation
In this sound journey the sounds and vibrations of singing bowls and other instruments invoke a meditative state of deep relaxation which can help to release and dissolve stress in the body, heart and mind. The singing bowls vibrate with a unique composition of different frequencies which are traditionally associated with specific planets, organs and energy centers (Chakras). In this way balance can be restored within the physical and energetic body.
