Mind & Disease: The Flow of Pathology from Mind to Matter
Below is full lecture outline (Friday lectures are just an Introduction)
The Ayurvedic Institute is thrilled to present this summer intensive on the mind. How does the stuff of the mind manifest into a physical illness? How can we better understand mind over matter and mind into matter? As practitioners, how can we begin to treat such subtle disturbances that at times seem to go beyond our understanding of simple vata, pitta, kapha? In this intensive, Vasant Lad, Ayurvedic Physician, will lead us through the haunting states of mental illnesses and bring us into practical understanding of how the mind flows into matter and how we can effectively address these issues. We will experience both lecture as well as demonstration of specific techniques toward treating certain mental illnesses. He will also lead us through an exploration of how these illnesses come to be manifested by talking about the role of the mental constitution, taking into account the cellular memory from the parents as well as karma the its effect on the mind. Join us for this intriguing look into the darker aspects of the mind.
