General Details for Vedic Counselling
Vedic counseling with Mas Vidal includes an integral approach to health and wellness and spirituality, using the wisdom of ayurveda, yoga and vedic astrology (jyotish is sometimes referred to as sidereal or hindu astrology). Sessions cover a range of areas related to your life, including karma, career, diet, relationships and whatever factors necesssary for establishing a sound mind-body relationship. One of the central goals of vedic counseling is to ensure the person is living in accordance with natures laws and in alignment with their life's purpose. Each persons soul has distinctive features and qualities that must be understood to support the path of living an evolutionary lifestyle. For over 15 years Mas Vidal has counseled people from all walks of life and has established an international clientele. His natural and practical counsel is rooted in the mystical lineage based wisdom traditions of India as well as years of experience in clinical detoxification therapies, diet, herbology, meditation and sports and physical yoga therapy.
Each session is essentially a complete Ayurvedic assessment that focuses on determination of the persons body-mind constitution (dosha) and addresses any major imbalances a person may be challenged with. Sessions also include a review of the astrological birth (natal) chart with emphasis on the medical (health) indicators to alleviate discomforting symptoms and identify the causes of the doshas. Understanding your dosha type is the first step towards Ayurvedic healing and is highly recommended especially if you are interested in doing the Detox Program. These sessions are also important for yoga teachers needing support with lifestyle balance and for refining their spiritual practices (sadhana).
Choose Your Focus
Clients can either choose to focus their counseling sessions on Ayurveda and health related matters, which will always include astrological factors or a person can choose to focus more on spiritual evolution and alignment with their dharma or life purpose. Sessions can also cover both topics, however this will require more than one session. Often times becasue a person is not working in a field or sector that aligns with their karma it will create fragmentation between the mind-body relationship, thus creating health issues and a lack of happiness. Regardless of your focus, the principles of yoga, ayurveda and jyotish will be integrative in a seemless manner to promote success in your life.
The Astrological Factor
Vedic astrology is a insightful method of understanding the unseen karmic influences in a persons life. Proper analysis of the birth chart can provide answers to often mysterious diseases and complicated health issues. In each session Mas will analyze the birth chart, look at the placement of nine planets and decifer the influences they have on the clients health and ultimately determine whether the person is in alignment with their dharma (life purpose), a crucial factor of health, happiness and spiritual evolution. Mas always explores the chart to discover a persons spiritual potential, encouraging them to adhere to life's highest ideal of self realization. Such things as mantras, breathing techniques and customized lessons in meditation are given to promote a living a spiritual life. Ayurveda provides an array of remedial measures to counter balance the effects of negative karma in the birth chart and for restoring overall balance.

Ayurveda works but it takes committment, concentration and consistency.

I met Mas, when my hormones were shifting through peri-menopause. He guided me with my Hatha-yoga practice to calm the fire, with some ayurvedic herbal support and changes to my diet to establish more balance with my doshas. It took many months and patience and eventually the fire was calmer inside my body. I would say, that it saved me from burning up inside. Thank you Mas for your devotion and knowledge. I have my life back!

After reading your book , The Sacred Relationship of Yoga and Ayurveda I was ready to learn more. I met you for an Astrology Ayurveda Consultation last March 2017. What I have learned is life altering. Thru additional consultations and the suggestionsyou have given me, I am able to link this material all together. It gives me gateway into a deeper understanding of my health and lifestyle on so many levels. I appreciate the ease I feel when I talk to you and the calmness and presence you bring to the conversation.
Do not hesitate to work with Mas in creating a healing program for yourself on all levels--physical, emotional, and spiritual—through Yoga, Ayurveda, and/or Jyotish.His depth of knowledge, wisdom, and compassion will support and transform you as he leads you gently through the process. I have worked with Mas several times over the last couple of years with protocols created specifically for my issues.The results have been remarkable.In addition, you will find his Yoga DVD’s and book, Sun, Moon and Earth, extremely useful.Thank you, Mas, for bringing me back to joyful balance!
Mas Vidal was able to help me when no one else could. After going from doctor to doctor for months and running myriad of tests, I was still suffering from constant burning in my feet and hands. I was becoming more and more desperate thinking that I can not live a normal life.He helped me with his calm, confident, compassionate and very receptive attitude and guidance which included Jyotish analysis, he gave me insights into what the causes may be and provided very precise protocol, which I followed.Within 3 month things turned around, and I was back to my normal life. He went extra step and provided me herbal treatment to maintain the calmness in the body. I am so very grateful and would definitely recommend Dr Mas.

I took Mas's suggestions home with me on things I needed to change in my life and to this day I incorporate all of it into my daily routine. It made a shift in how I approach my yoga practice and also had a major shift on my mental state. Through astrological readings for my entire family he has been there to guide us and offer me insight and full support, I trust him, he has incredible wisdom and knowledge and he's extremely humble. He speaks to you in a way that you can comprehend and understand and makes you feel so comfortable in his presence.
One of the first things I did after my initial consultation with Mas Vidal was a 10 day Pancha Karma at Dancing Shiva Yoga and Ayurveda.I had done so many other cleanses before and was brand new to Ayurveda.I can honestly say that my experience of Pancha Karma made me a believer in the power of this way of healing from the first moment.The nourishment in the treatments, the grounding food, and the depth of healing in my tissues, my soul, and my emotions was unsurpassed in any of my other healing experiences before then, or since.I am forever grateful to have had this experience and to have begun my journey into Ayurveda in such a meaningful way.

April 2013 I was extremely physically sick; at the time Saturn was transiting Libra ruled by the planet/graha Venus and transiting my Lagna with Rahu. I was experiencing digestive problems and lower back pain. One day in June 2013, I found Mas Vidal on Youtube talking about Ayurveda health and Vedic principles on KRS Channel.At the time, I had been studying Jyotish on my own.I am super grateful for Mas Vidal, due to the fact that I had never heard of Ayurveda principles before.After watching and listening to Mas speak, I took several notes and started to study Ayurveda on my own reading all that I possibly could.I radically changed my life choices including food intake choices June 2013; I started to take my current life situation and the planet transits seriously at that point. Now today, I am a certified Level 1 sidereal Vedic astrologer, I am enrolled in Ayurveda School for fall of 2017 and enrolled in yoga classes at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram. I have transformed to a higher state of consciousness since May of 2013 and back then I could not see or understand hope for my life. I faced my dark fears with sattwic faith and hope. Words can not express how deeply grateful I am for wise teachers like Mas Vidal who take time out from their busy daily lives to help others like me to have the opportunity for a better way of a life with internal peace.
