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

Happy Heart

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. 

  • Understand what cardiovascular disease is, and it’s etiology
  • Learn subtle energy causes
  • Learn skills to heal in relating to others and self
  • Learn Ayurvedic tools for heart health

Modern medicine integrations

Our goal is to see the opportunity for integration of Ayurveda with Modern Medicine, and other modalities. A good portion of this class is dedicated to live case discussion, so come ready to ask about ailments you, clients, or loved ones are experiencing. 

  • Understand how Ayurvedic approaches can integrate with Modern Medicine approaches
  • Case Study - Learn integrative approaches for respiratory disease
  • Case Study - Learn integrative approaches for autoimmune conditions
  • Case Study - Learn integrative approaches for thyroid disease

Oct 10-16 guided cleanse with Ayurvedic chef Meredith Klein 

I'll be teaching Seasonal Ayurveda hacks midweek.

The Pranaful Cleanse was designed by Meredith as a hybrid juice fast and Ayurvedic cleanse, to provide an experience that is both effective in facilitating detoxification, while also nourishing for body, mind and spirit. The cleanse is perfect whether you are an experienced cleanser or if this is your first cleansing experience, and is particularly effective for individuals who have struggled with liquids-only fasts. (Note: juicing is optional and a cooked breakfast option is offered as part of the cleanse plan for those who do not have a juicer or would prefer something a bit more substantial in the mornings).

Perhaps what people love most about the Pranaful Cleanse is the deep space it creates for personal reflection/introspection, and the opportunity to be supported by a loving, vibrant online community. Each day, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with other cleanse participants in a live online setting or via a group forum. 

Participants in the cleanse can expect:

  • Increased energy levels by the end of the week

  • Better digestive functioning

  • Heightened mental clarity

  • Diminished cravings for sugar, caffeine and processed foods

  • Motivation to make better food choices, eat more mindfully, and stay committed to self-care

  • A community to share with

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
