Vedic Astrology Conference
Join Mas Vidal for Jyotisha and the Healing Herbs of Ayurveda & Yoga
Jyotish and Ayurveda are interlinked and demonstrate a variety of healing remedies for the mind and body according to the more subtle factors in the birth chart. This intensive will explore the indicators found in the nakshatras (lunar mansions) to prescribe herbs, special formulas and dietary measures according to Ayurveda. Special emphasis will be placed on the nervous and endocrine systems to bring greater balance to the female body and health in general. We will explore the medicinal and symbolic significance of the trees or herbal plants according to each of the 27 nakshatras. Understanding the nakshatra tree as the physical human spine brings great insight into how prana adheres to the body, its strengths, and its deficiencies. These sacred plant-star correlations were assigned by the Vedic rishis to remind us of the sacred and eternal relationship the human spirit shares with nature.
Learn how the nakshatra tree acts as a yantra or vehicle for awakening the inner shakti or potential of the Goddess. Eventually, as the aspirant continues on their spiritual path they must inevitably connect their mind and spine (tree nakshatra) for greater health, and most importantly to enhance our knowledge and devotion to the One in All! The Supreme Divine!
