This day is to reconnect with each other, to formally start the new study year, cover some logistics and introduce some of the main study topics of this upcoming year. Major attention will be given to the specifics of the upcoming e-learning track of this year. We will also re-view the video class lecture on Shadpadartha – the important fundamental scientific principles necessary to really grasp the foundation of clinical ayurveda.
E-learning/online Ayurveda therapy course (160 hours) - 8 September 2014 - 8 June 2015
This is a very intense, whole-year-round e-learning track with weekly online sessions, an online international classroom format, and taught by Atreya Smith (vaidya). They have been running and teaching this program for several years now. It is aimed at – very efficiently – studying all the aspects of ayurveda necessary for understanding and setting up a basic clinical practice, suited to what in the west is denoted by the title ayurvedic practitioner. Click here for an overview of all dates and subjects.
Their approach is highly scientific, practical and includes nutrition, lifestyle, psychology and western herbs. The track is very demanding and one has to count on 8 to 10 hours of study load each week, for a period of a whole study year, from September to July (with a Christmas break).
