The Art of Ayurveda: why this 5000 years old healing science is relevant today?

Ideas about alternative medicine are deeply embedded in Western culture today – whether in the form of yoga, massage, herbal remedies or discussions about mindfulness and wellness. The aim of this talk is to shed light on the ancient Indian practice of Ayurveda, from which many of these ideas originate.

Ayurvedic medicine rests on the principle that healing begins by tuning into the body in an attempt to reach inner peace and alignment with the self. Just as everyone has a unique fingerprint, each person has a particular pattern of energy—an individual combination of physical, mental and emotional characteristics—which comprises their own constitution. This constitution is determined at conception by a number of factors and remains the same throughout one’s life. Ayurveda addresses all aspects of life — the body, mind and spirit. It recognizes that each of us is unique, each person possesses different strengths, weaknesses and responds differently to facets of life. The holistic nature of Ayurveda presents a vast sea of knowledge and information that throws light on the relationships between causes and their effects, both immediate and subtle, for each unique individual.

Knowledge of Ayurveda enables you to understand how to create this balance of body, mind and consciousness according to your own individual constitution and how to make lifestyle changes to bring about and maintain this balance. This balance includes proper diet, right thinking, lifestyle and use of natural herbs. One of the reasons why yoga forms the foundation of Ayurveda as it not only includes physical movements but also emphasis on mindfulness that enables an individual to focus on the present moment.

Ayurveda recognizes that each one of us is unique, each person possesses different strengths, weaknesses and responds differently to the facets of life. The holistic nature of Ayurveda presents a vast sea of knowledge that throws light on the relationships between causes and their effects, both immediate and subtle, for each unique individual.
