We are not just our body, but a divine soul presented with opportunities to grow and heal in this final stage of life.

The Final Journey Within
In this webinar, Vasant Lad will illuminate how this later stage of life is in fact an opportunity to strengthen our understanding of our true Self and commune with this higher state of being. He will elaborate on how the natural decline of the senses - a closing of the doors of perception - is in fact our cue to gaze inwards and move closer to the divinity in each of us.
Take this webinar if…
You or a loved one is nearing or already in the fourth and final stage of life and you would like to explore the Ayurvedic approach to death - with practices and experiences that open the door to more grace and peace through this important process.
You are a healthcare professional working with elder patients or clients in end-of-life or palliative care and would like to learn about Ayurvedic concepts and practices that can support your patients through this stage of life and their final transition.
You are an Ayurvedic practitioner or student looking to deepen your understanding of the Vedic culture - especially the insights and practices around death and dying - learning from a world-leading Ayurvedic physician and scholar, Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc.
Although all are welcome to join this webinar, a foundational understanding of Ayurvedic concepts around the doshas, prakruti and vikruti would be greatly supportive! The Speaker often uses basic Ayurvedic terminology and sometimes sings Sanskrit sutras from the classical texts, but he will always translate the English meaning of the sutra for us.
There will be a tea break about halfway through the webinar, and Vasant Lad will provide ample time both in the middle and at the end of the webinar for Q&A.
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!
