Midweek Retreat - Module “Shadpadartha” and first 10 chapters Ashtanga Hridayam (30 contact hours) 17 - 21 December 2012

Midweek on location, in the Babaji ashram in Loenen.

The ancients texts of Ayurveda have long been the ultimate resource for teaching as well as learning within the millenia old tradition of this healing science of life. The texts themselves are considered authoritative and to some extent also complete in themselves. This particularly counts for the Brihat Trayam – the Big Three – texts: Charaka Samhita, Sushruta Samhita and Ashtanga Hridayam. Each of those texts can be studied independently as complete ‘study tracks’. The Ashtanga Hridayam is a special text in itself, as it is said to represent the essential teaching form the other two, and this in a very condensed and logically built up structure – written in poetry to remember it more effectively and to even deeper penetrate the consciousness of the student. In order to stay in line with this tradition, the Aacedmy of Ayurvedic Studies have started a beautiful project of making short, condensed, inspiring video classes with Dr. Vijith explaining the crux of each of the first 15 chapters of the Ashtanga Hridayam of Vagbhata. In this midweek Retreat we will show a series of 2 preparatory video class lessons, followed by 10 exquisite video class lessons on the first 10 chapters – which together give a wealth of useful, practical and inspiring information.
