This workshop is designed for clinical and human services providers and will focus on one of the treatment paradigms within the realm that Prima Wellness refers to as the “sacred sciences.”
Sacred: Something of a spiritual nature that is rich in wisdom, tradition, and history and is treated with great respect and divinity.
Science: An intellectual activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and research.
Ayurvedic Medicine, is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing
that has its origins in Northern India. Although suppressed during years of foreign occupation, Ayurveda has had a major resurgence over the past decade in both its native land and throughout the world. Tibetan medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and early Greek Medicine all have their roots in Ayurveda. More than a system of treating illness, Ayurveda is an integrative and preventative wellness model that offers a body of wisdom designed to support vitality, balance, immunity, and longevity. The analysis of individual physiology, psychology, and epigenetic variables are all examined comprehensively.
Workshop participants will be guided through the following:
? Discover the Ayurvedic philosophy behind etiology of both mental and physical pathological disease states in the human body
? Review the empirical connections between ancient theory and modern medicine.
? Learn about unique elemental forces driving human behavior and what creates different human personality factors and physiological constitutions.
? Explore Ayurvedic theory of the mind and learn how this eastern psychological framework conceptualizes anxiety, depression, trauma, and chronic stress.
? Learn about the fundamentals of nutritional neuroscience, gut health, and nutritive herbs and influences on mental wellness.
? Receive information on self-care rituals that can be adapted to clinical work with clients within your own scope of practice.
