Weds 18th & Thurs 19th Sept AN AYURVEDIC APPROACH TO DETOXIFICATION
led by Anne McIntyre
In the Ayurvedic tradition, detoxification followed by rejuvenation (rasayana) is the first step to enhancing health of mind and body. Regular periods of detoxification can help to protect us from developing health problems, increase our energy and vitality and promote a sense of joy and wellbeing.
The accumulation of toxins is part of life and can affect us on both physical as well as subtle levels. Psychologically, when we are not able to process difficult times in life, mental and emotional toxins accumulate from holding onto negative emotions and undigested experiences.
The incredible teachings of Ayurveda provide us with wise counsel for helping us to let go of these toxins as well as a medicine chest of remedies from the natural world to bring us back into harmony in body and mind. During our two days workshop we will explore many of these and you will leave with a deeper understanding of Ayurveda as well as practical tools for self healing.
