A Day of Ayurveda – Practice and Theory

Winter is the perfect time to take a sneak peek at our Lifestyle and explore the aspects of Nourishment. Meta joins us to bring her wealth of knowledge to us through ‘A Day of Ayurveda’ with an inspiring day of yoga, breathing, meditation and some cooking.

Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems.

More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realising their full human potential.

Health is fostered through the informed interaction of the individual with their diet, mental process, lifestyle and environment. Ayurveda teaches us how to sustain what is inborn: health in the individual, in society and for the planet. It enhances our connection to nature, the five elements and the vastness of life.

With a variety of experiential practices, you will have a platform to learn why by doing.

During the day you will have the opportunity to:

  • Explore Lifestyle with yoga asanas, breathing, meditation, chanting and partial self-massage
  • Explore Nourishment where you will prepare vegetable khichuri for lunch
  • Explore and understand the Basic Concepts of Ayurveda
  • Explore Mental Processes followed by Question and Answer time

Meta Doherty is an IYTA (Australia) Yoga Teacher, Ayurveda Lifestyle Consultant and author of two books – Sattwa Café and Ayurvedic Forever Wellbeing, A Treasury of Holistic Recommendations.

Fall In Love with Your Life Two-Day Workshop @ The Sound Temple
Aug 3 – Aug 4 all-day

$395 Two-Day Workshop **This is a ticketed event, no door sales available
$750 for couples to attend the Two-Day Workshop

The Building Blocks to Emotional Resilience

Designed for men, women and couples, these workshops are run by Joe Douglas, a qualified psychotherapist whose mission in life is to help others. Joe is a highly skilled facilitator and holds and maintains a safe place for people to get the most out of their experiences.

I believe that people are not broken, people do not catch dis-ease like ‘depression’ or ‘anxiety’, they feel the effects of these feelings and manage themselves the best they can at the time. People are amazingly resilient, noble and honourable and sometimes get overwhelmed and sometimes find their best efforts at “self-improvement” thwarted. So to bring about concerted change one might need some support to turn a new leaf, make a fresh start.
– Joe Douglas

These workshops are for people that are new to personal development and are also useful for people that are not so new to this type of work. Couples are warmly welcomed to join this transformative weekend.

Over the weekend you will learn how your emotions affect you and those around you. You will get the chance to work through some of your issues and learn how holding on to past resentments drains your energy.

What Is Emotional Resilience?
Emotional resilience refers to one’s ability to adapt to stressful situations or crises. More resilient people are able to “roll with the punches” and adapt to adversity without lasting difficulties; less resilient people have a harder time with stress and life changes, both major and minor. It’s been found that those who deal with minor stresses more easily can also manage major crises with greater ease, so resilience has its benefits for daily life as well as for the rare major catastrophe.

Mindfulness
You will gain practical tools for becoming more mindful in your life. What does ‘mindful’ mean? It means being more present and aware of your inner and outer world. Who benefits from that? You and all those who you consider nearest and dearest will most definitely benefit.
During the weekend, you will learn about mindfulness and becoming less stressed. You will get to understand how big emotions drive your behaviour in good and bad ways. You’ll see how your emotions have been shaped during your childhood.

Questions to consider

  • Would you like to be calmer when you respond to your partner, your parents or your children?
  • Do you sometimes feel sad over something that seems small?
  • Do you have fears that impact the people you love the most?
  • Are you ready to fall in love with your life?

Freedom
If you could have freedom from old limiting patterns and beliefs, freedom from addiction and addictive behaviours would you say “yes”?

If you would like to understand your life, discover what it is that you want to do with the rest of your life, get practical tools to help you create the life you desire and have a bit of fun whilst doing it then this two-day workshop is definitely for you.

Here’s what a couple of Joe’s participants had to say about their experience …
“Joe has a unique way of engaging with people that allows a safe space to form. Within this space is where the magic happens. Joe is well-equipped with an amazing insight into emotions. He has helped me dig right down to the core of my inner-world and where my emotions have been sourced from.
Joe is kind, intuitive, funny and full of life. And his workshop has been life changing for me. Amazing connections are made within the group with an incredible community feel. I can’t thank Joe enough for this incredible experience.”
and
“His words are still with me today. I am eternally grateful to have met Joe and attend his amazing, inspiring workshop. I fully recommend this, it could change your life, like it did mine.”

Joe prides himself on being a practical, down-to-earth kind of therapist who cuts through to the core of what needs to be done and helps people move through whatever they need to so that they can find more peace in their life.

He has delivered hundreds of workshops in all sorts of modalities, he leads meditation, sacred circles and corporate groups all over the world.

This event is held in the Perth Hills at the lovely grounds and studios of The Sound Temple.

The Wisdom of Elements – Ayurveda @ The Sound Temple
Sep 8 @ 10:00 am – 4:30 pm

Contribution $90 – This is a ticketed event, no door sales available

A Day of Ayurveda – Practice and Theory

As we move into the warmer months of the year it is the perfect time to embrace Diet and Lifestyle recommendations and explore The Great Elements.

Meta joins us to bring her wealth of knowledge to us through ‘A Day of Ayurveda’ with a day of yoga, breathing, meditation cooking and concepts.
Exploration will be around the Intelligence, internally and externally, of the three more active elements:

ﻍ Air
ﻍ Fire
ﻍ Water

If you have attended any of our Ayurveda events, or if you are a first-timer, you are invited to join us and develop your understanding of the biological intelligence within us known as ‘Dosha-s’.

Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems.

More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realising their full human potential.

Health is fostered through the informed interaction of the individual with their diet, mental process, lifestyle and environment. Ayurveda teaches us how to sustain what is inborn: health in the individual, in society and for the planet. It enhances our connection to nature, the five elements and the vastness of life. Ayurveda recognises the elements in the environment as the same elements activating our bodies and minds.

With a variety of experiential practices, you will have first-hand knowledge of why – by doing.

During this nourishing day we will:

  • Explore yoga, breathing and meditation in three separate forms, to understand how to balance our air element, fire element and water element
  • Cook three different recipes for lunch as part of the experiential understanding of the elements and the dosha-s
  • Become familiar with the signatures of the elements so as to maintain wellness
  • Gain a deeper feel for the concept of the Dosha-s
  • Explore and share by way of Question and Answer time
