In this session we weave together and apply concepts about tissue, digestion and imbalances using case studies. Our work will introduce us to basic healing herbs and the use of rasayana to support right action of the body’s own healing wisdom. We will continue to build on our knowledge of anatomy and physiology from both the western and eastern perspectives to recognize dosha imbalances and identify digestion issues.
In this session of HI AYS Graduate School, we will take what we've learned to date and apply it to client issues using a case-study model. We will introduce ayurvedic therapies such as kati basti and netra basti and learn how they are used in clinical treatment. Finally, we will practice Sanskrit to support navigating the language of ayurveda.
This is our second installment of ayurvedic anatomy and physiology. We will learn how srotamsi (channels) and dhatu (tissues) function in our system. We will then explore the relationship between agni, srotamsi, and dhatu and how this wisdom applies to our physical and mental health.
This session will introduce the ayurvedic science of disease. We will explore the relationship between ashtavidha pariksha, the eight means of clinical understanding; nidana panchakam, the five causes of disease; and samprapti, the six stages of disease.
This is our second session of herbology. We will dive into the 10 basic herbs of ayurveda using rasa, virya, vipaka, and prabhava. We will work to complete our understanding of how these herbs affect doshas, dhatu, and malas.
We will use case study and small-group inquiry to learn how ayurveda applies ashtavidha pariksha to mental and physical symptoms and diseases. We will use our ayurvedic tools—diet and nutrition, lifestyle, pranayama, asana, herbs, and meditation—in designing treatment plans.
