Prepare to begin – or deepen – your practice of “nadi vijnanam”, the art of reading the pulse, in what has become the Ayurvedic Institute’s most popular summer intensive.
Healthcare practitioners will benefit from this week-long immersion into the impulse of life, as witnessed through the pulse. With over 40 years of clinical experience, Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc, Ayurvedic Physician, will explain the theory behind the seven characteristics and seven layers of the pulse and guide participants through specific aspects of their assessment. In addition, The Ayurvedic Institute staff will guide daily partner and group work and facilitate activities for increasing intuition and sensitive awareness.
You’ll learn that as in any system of medicine, pulse assessment is a matter of technical skill, subjective experience, intuition and persistent practice. In the Ayurvedic tradition, it is the most important of eight clinical examination methods, opening the doors of perception to a client’s physical and mental prakruti (constitution), vikruti (current imbalance), disease prognosis, organ energy and tissue health. Take this magical 7-layered journey into the pulse and see how even the functioning of chakras can be perceived with enough sensitive awareness.
Our Summer Intensives will be held between June 19 and July 16. We are still working on the perfect venue for each one and details will be announced soon. Enjoy a look at these upcoming events!
Certificate of Completion for 38 contact hours is provided based on a participant’s attendance of all 38 hours of class.
