Ayurveda: Life Science, the practice through which Yoga (Asana, Pranayama, Meditation) are prescribed as medicine for the whole being.
This workshop will illuminate the ways in which Ayurveda & Yoga breathe life into the practical spirituality of the 12 steps and recovery from addiction. We will explore the foundational concepts of Ayurveda (such as dosha, gunas, tattvas and Indian Philosophy) and how these tools apply to recovery.
According to Ayurveda, we have all that we need to live our fullest, most authentic life. Dis-ease arises from misplacement and a shift away from center. Just as the 12 steps offers practical tools to live a life free from active addiction, Ayurveda offers tools to work with our true nature; bringing us back to center. Combining the ancient sciences of Ayurveda & Yoga with the 12 Steps of Recovery forges a path to bring our entire being back to center, so that we can discover our heart’s desire and learn to live with purpose.
This workshop is appropriate for:
-professionals in the addiction treatment field who wish gain knowledge of a spiritual path for clients.
-Yogis looking to deepen their understanding of Ayureveda and the 12 steps
-People recovering from addiction or affected by the addiction of another.
