For thousands of years Ayurvedic practitioners have highlighted how the health of the mind is intrinsically linked to the health of one's body and consciousness. Current medical research is reaffirming this insight, as we discover the deep relationship between trauma and chronic disease. Our psychological trauma literally lives within our bodies as much as our minds - and healing from these experiences requires treatment of the entire being in mind, body, and consciousness.

The mind plays an essential role in understanding, processing, and acting in the best interest of ourselves and those around us. When our mind is not well, it is hard to ‘feel’ well and make the right choices in our journey toward balance.

In its framing of the mind, Ayurveda describes the fundamental characteristics of how emotions and thoughts are processed through the antahkarana - the equipment of the mind. When this process is disturbed it means we cannot fully process and reintegrate our experiences - and just like unprocessed food in our gut, this can lead to additional health issues and even illness.

In this seminar, we will be exploring the inner workings of the mind through an Ayurvedic lens. Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc, will explore how the individual mind is connected to a universal mind, and how psychological trauma can be addressed through actively working within this relationship.

Vasant Lad will explore the Ayurvedic view of psychological trauma and will introduce healing methods - such as meditation techniques and lifestyle amendments - that can support those suffering from psychological trauma.

Topics covered in this Seminar:

  • Exploring the functioning of the mind according to Ayurveda, including an introduction to the concept of the “Antaḥkaraṇa” or inner equipment of experience.
  • The Ayurvedic perspective on psychological trauma and neuropathy.
  • A practical overview of how Ayurveda works with psychological trauma including treatments and practices that can support healing.
  • Discussion of breathwork and meditation techniques that can support clear perception, help process trauma, and prevent further imbalance from manifesting.

Take this seminar if…

You are interested in learning more about the Ayurvedic framing of psychological trauma and how you can help yourself or those you support.

You are a student or a practitioner of Ayurveda yourself, looking to learn additional insights from a master with over 50 years of experience in Ayurvedic practice.

You are a medical or healthcare professional interested in learning how certain Ayurvedic techniques and methods can further support your clients or patients.

Anyone is welcome to attend this seminar, however a prior knowledge of Ayurveda will support your comprehension of the topics discussed. Throughout the seminar, Vasant Lad will use sanskrit words and classical sutras to describe Ayurvedic concepts. He will always go over the meaning of these words, so it’s not necessary to know all of these terms ahead of time.

Please note: In the live Q&A section of the seminar it is not possible for Vasant Lad to answer all the questions shared, so our moderators select those questions that have application to the wider audience, and only questions related to the topic of the seminar will be considered. Thank you!

What you can look forward to taking away from this seminar:

  • A deeper understanding of emotional and experiential processing according to Ayurveda.

  • A compassionate understanding of trauma mechanisms that is firmly rooted in the principles of Ayurveda, the science of life.

  • Practical tools to purify the mind and senses to better digest difficult experiences and prevent neuropathy from manifesting.

  • Being able to share this newfound understanding and practical tools with friends, family and clients.

The recording of the lecture will be shared in your AyurLearn portal 72 hours after the live event for your reference.
