Ayurveda is the oldest medicine in the world and means ‘Knowledge of life’. Unlike modern medicine, Ayurvedic drugs are not aimed at numbing the pain, but at treating the cause. Only natural products are used in Ayurveda.
During this course you learn about the basic principles of Ayurveda. By being aware of how your body works and what effect your living and eating patterns have you can improve your health. The program is includes practical workshops in which we look for fresh herbs in nature and make different preparations, including tea and oils.
The activities are spread over 5 mornings and are held outside as much as possible.
Attention is paid to your personal situation or difficulties. The week is given in English.
The week is given by Richard Slager.
