VASANT LAD WEBINAR

Ayurveda and neuroscience

May 20, 2023 | 10:00am - 1:00pm EST
WITH
Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc

Dive into the topic of neuroscience (the study of the nervous system - with its many parts and functions) from an Ayurvedic perspective with world-renowned Ayurvedic Physician and teacher Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc.

Vasant Lad will guide you through the subtle anatomy of the brain and nervous system from an Ayurvedic point of view. Ayurveda honors the interconnected nature of all our internal systems - offering a deeper appreciation and understanding of our body-mind connection and how our lifestyle, behavior, thoughts, emotions, and diet are all influencing neurochemical changes within us.

After this webinar you will be able to marry the concepts of contemporary neuroscience with the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda. You will also gain valuable insights into how to support the healthy production of neurotransmitters with specific therapies, herbs, dietary, and lifestyle amendments - helping us to improve brain health and functioning for ourselves, our clients, and our community.

Topics will we cover in this webinar

Join Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc, founder and director of The Ayurvedic Institute, as he explores neuroscience as it relates to the individual and universal mind - while offering Ayurvedic insights that can support the healthy functioning of the brain, the seat of the mind which governs all physical, emotional, and energetic aspects of our life.

With Vasant Lad you will explore :

  • The function of the brain from a western perspective and learn the functional integrity of the subdoshas governing the brain from an Ayurvedic perspective.
  • The Ayurvedic anatomy of the central nervous system and the subtle anatomy of the brain relating to the planets and karma.
  • The relationship between our thoughts, feelings and emotions and the secretion of specific neurotransmitters and hormones.
  • The ultimate potential of the brain and higher perception, called 'Soma Vidya', and discover how our limited intelligence is connected to the universal intelligence.
  • The stages and states of consciousness - such as those found in dreams and in anesthetics.
  • The foods and herbs that can help improve brain function
  • Daily habits that can benefit specific neuro chemicals through behavioral and spiritual therapy and observe Vasant Lad unveiling the influence meditation and pranayama has on our brain.
  • How we can improve and maintain brain health through ancient subtle therapies such as sound, touch, color, taste, and fragrance - investigating how certain mantras or herbs are related to the secretion of particular hormones and neurotransmitters.

Vasant Lad regularly pauses during the webinar, offering the opportunity to ask questions. All our webinars include ample time at the end for a Q&A.

Take this webinar if…

You wish to learn about the profound similarities between modern research of neuroscience and the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda and how this knowledge can be employed for your own healing and spiritual growth.

You are an Ayurvedic Practitioner wanting to explore the Ayurvedic significance of neuroscience with world-renowned Ayurvedic physician and spiritual teacher Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc. While learning Ayurvedic remedies, as proposed by Vaidya Lad after decades of clinical practice, with a particular focus on herbal and food remedies, subtle sensory therapies, behavioral medicine, meditation, pranayama, and mantra.

You are a medical or healthcare professional interested in learning the Ayurvedic medical perspective on assessing brain health and how to heal through the implementation of dietary and lifestyle amendments - using a wide array of therapies to restore and maintain a radiant and optimal functioning brain.

  • This webinar would be categorized as intermediate to advanced - although all are welcome, having an understanding of Ayurvedic concepts around the doshas and the prakruti-vikruti paradigm will greatly support your comprehension of this topic.
  • There will be a tea break approximately halfway through the webinar. Vasant Lad will give plenty of time for questions both in the middle and at the end of the session. 
  • Please note: In the live Q&A section of the webinar 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 webinar will be considered. Thank you!

Bridging the jargon of neuroscience in modern medicine with Ayurveda principles

Ayurveda teaches that the brain is a vital organ fundamental to the central nervous system. The brain is the main seat of consciousness, memory, intellect, reasoning and understanding and the entire personality depends upon the development of the brain. An emotion is a neurochemical charge when a thought, triggered by sensory input, connects with memory. Through bringing awareness to our daily habits, we can take charge of the chemical soup in our body and lead a life of clarity in relation to your thoughts, feelings and emotions. Learning about neuroscience from an Ayurvedic perspective enhances our mastery, healing and joy.

 In this webinar we’ll explore how state-of-the-art neuroscience reconfirms the time-tested wisdom of Ayurveda, which takes the knowledge of the brain a step further with an understanding of the subtle esoteric anatomy of the brain in connection with the ultimate reality, the universal consciousness.

Neurotransmitters and hormones

According to Ayurveda certain herbs maintain a healthy brain and improve neural communication. These herbs keep the neurotransmitters and hormones of the brain such as serotonin, melatonin, and acetylcholine well balanced.

Brain and transcendence

One cannot speak about the Ayurvedic view of the mind without discussing meditation. The internal synaptic space is synonymous with the vast outer space. As subjects of consciousness we can enter into states that enable us to explore these states - this profound meditation is the ultimate potential of the human brain and has a powerful and positive impact on the rest of our being.
