Pathways of the Inner Pharmacy: Using Subtle Sense Therapies (Tanmatra Chikitsa) for Health and Healing
Below is full lecture outline (Friday lectures are just an Introduction)
“Vision is food for the eyes. Sound is food for the ears. Touch is food for the skin. Taste is food for the tongue.”
~ Vasant Lad, MASc
We are what we eat – but did you know we are also what we ingest through our senses of hearing, touching, seeing, tasting, and smelling? These experiences, vital to the mind’s ability to accurately understand and interact with its outer surroundings, leave physical, mental and emotional impressions that shape who we are and who we can become.
Ayurvedic Tanmatra Chikitsa are subtle therapies used to target the five senses and transform the internal landscape of the body, mind and spirit. Exploring the sound of mantra, the touch of marma and polarity therapy, the vision of yantra and more, Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc will show you how to open pathways to the inner pharmacy and unfold healing at a powerful level during this weeklong summer intensive. You will learn the influence of the six tastes on body, mind, and spirit and explore the use of chromotherapy (light therapy), aromatherapy with essential oils and incense for relieving pain and re-establishing balance.
What feeds our senses truly feeds our whole being. Join us to learn practical yet profound practices for nourishing yourself, your clients, family, and community with Tanmatra Chikitsa, the subtle sense therapies of Ayurveda.
