The Heart and Wisdom of Nature

( Weaving Ayurveda into your Practice)


May 21-22, 2016


At White Dove Herbal Sanctuary , Montpelier, VT

Nature is always speaking to us, showing her qualities in every season.  Once we recognize our own individual qualities and create a daily practice of tuning our senses, we can begin to understand how our choices impact our well-being. Learning directly from nature enters our hearts and minds where we are able to translate our experience into knowledge, body wisdom and peace of mind.


This weekend has been designed for those who have completed a first level course on Ayurveda and understand the basic concepts of this marvelous system!


Hope you can make it! 





During this weekend we will hone our sense of perception and further our understanding of Ayurveda in these ways:


~  Reviewing the Doshas and Sub-Doshas


~ Understanding Samprapti- the Unfolding of Disease- and how to help one return to balance


~ Reading the Pulse- recognizing the influence of the Doshas and sub-doshas


~ Ayurvedic Tongue Diagnosis~ An Introduction


~ Case Studies that highlight the three possible doshas imbalances:

   Arthritis, Fertility, Menopause and Hypertension


~ Ayurvedic herbs and spices for fun and beauty~

Autumn Weekend: Standing Like a Tree

Using the trees as our inspiration, we’ll practice the Meta meditation to heal ourselves and become a strong source of healing for others. Radiating with the strength and flexibility of a tree we’ll practice yoga asana and pranayama with Andrea expertly guiding us. Kate will help deepen our understanding of Ayurveda philosophy and practices as well as her love for the trees. She’ll share herbs and healing foods for energy, clarity and vibrancy. She’ll also teach us the meditative art of making pine needle baskets.

Nancy will take us into the kitchen and teach us how to prepare healing foods and herbal preparations to help us stay in balance during the fall and winter months. She’ll also lead us in making some aromatic herbal incense.
