Cancer

One in three women in the US will have cancer. One in five will die from it. These statistics are several years old, which means that incidence and mortality are likely higher than when we last did the analysis. Let’s talk about why cancer happens and why it’s so prevalent. Also, let’s look at psychospiritual factors and treatment integration. 

  • Understand how cancer occurs and what it is
  • Learn subtle energy causes
  • Learn possibilities for individualization in treatment
  • Learn possibilities for integration with Modern Medicine

The health of our heart and blood is so much deeper than our lab values and diet. I’ll present physical and emotional factors playing into happy circulation, and we’ll approach healing from the same holistic lens.

  • Learn subtle energy causes
  • Learn skills to heal in relating to others and self
  • Learn Ayurvedic tools for heart health

Emotional Basis of Tummy Trouble

Ayurveda is a very sophisticated science when it comes to understanding digestion. Yet, even within Ayurveda, it’s so common to find these reductionist approaches to food, healing, and supporting digestion. I hope to keep alive the core holistic essence of Ayurveda, by including  the emotional and psychospiritual layers in the digestive experience. We’ll review four major categories of digestive issues: constipation, diverticular diseases, ulcerative and inflammatory diseases, and cancerous and benign growths. 

  • Understand the relationship between emotions and digestion
  • Understand the pathophysiology and the energetics of these four major categories of digestive ailments
  • Glimpse the emotional patterns supporting the disease process
  • Take a look at how your emotional state affects your agni, digestion, and elimination

Ayurveda & Psychospiritual Wellness

This topic is a needed adjunct to the physical focus of Ayurveda, and self care. We’ll cover my most pertinent insights and practices for psychospiritual wellness. Of course, we’ll do some live case study, and self reflective exercises so you can begin to apply. 

  • Broaden your definition of health
  • Understand the effects of patriarchy and mass marketing on the practice of Ayurveda
  • Glimpse  the benefits of incorporating the psychospiritual aspects of Ayurveda
  • Understand spiritual growth
  • Understand emotional needs
  • How to handle unpleasant emotions
  • Learn about the psychospiritual spiral, and our cyclical emotional experience
  • Be able to step into emotionally empowered decision making
  • See how patterns across the emotional body mimic those in the physical body (case study)
  • Understand how holistic healing becomes inseparable from spiritual growth

Moon Rituals & Women’s Cycles

With women taking on more, and the growing incidence of reproductive cancers, it’s an important time to strengthen our intuition, our ojas, and our ability to connect to nature’s rhythms. Mood sadhana is one of the most powerful ways to do so. Understanding the emotional functions of your monthly cycle is also helpful context to navigate your personal experience. We’ll also do some self assessment and reflection. 

 

Learning objectives

 

  • Learn the moon cycle
  • Understand how the moon affects changes in our bodies
  • Learn about subtle causes of disease in your women-parts
  • Understand the connection of emotions and the yoni
  • Learn rituals and self care practices for moon phases
