Ayurvedic Lifestyle with Mas Vidal (Maheshananda)

Learn how the ancient wisdom tradition of Ayurveda provides practical principles for health and wellness based on natural laws. These commonsense practices can be transformational if one understands what is best for their mind-body type and include the three major categories of diet, sex, and sleep.  This universal wisdom begins each day with special rituals that help connect human beings to their cosmic nature. The topic of diet will include oils, basic food groups, use of herbs and spices, and what to do each day as soon as you arise from sleep.  Most of the world remains dormant and waits for something to go wrong with their body. It’s not a matter of if, it’s when, as karmic law abides equally to all human beings. Everything else can wait, but your search for truth cannot!

This workshop will cover:

  • Knowledge of the natural laws that sustain the relationship between human being and their cosmic nature.   
  • Teaching the Ayurvedic daily routine, and take-home practices to the entire family.
  • The role of diet and Ayurvedic secrets in creating a powerful human body.
  • Sexuality and its influence on immunity, digestion, menstruation, and longevity.
  • Learn the basic rules around sleep and simple remedies for improving it.
  • Herbs and Spices in the daily and seasonal diet.
  • Creating skin and hair health and radiance
