In support of CAAM Ayurveda Day 2022, I am glad to announce I will give the keynote for this FREE online event, this Sunday October 23. The full conference extends from 12:30 – 5:30 pm Pacific Time. The keynote, Food: Explore How It Nourishes Body, Mind, and Consciousness is 12:50 pm PT/1:50 pm Mountain Time. Our purpose is to share how Ayurveda can be used to rejuvenate and revitalize our lives. This event is open to the general public, as well as students and practitioners of Ayurveda, sponsored by the California Association of Ayurvedic Medicine.
Food: Explore How It Nourishes Body, Mind, and Consciousness
Food can rejuvenate us physically, energetically, emotionally. It impacts our minds and consciousness. Through the lens of the five koshas, we will explore how Ayurveda’s core concepts can be adapted to meet your unique needs, individually and culturally. Learn simple and straightforward ways to do this. Nourishment covers a wide range of experience. The focus here is to converge this diverse array of methods and insights into the single awareness, consciousness, which we all share.
The CAAM Ayurveda Day 2022 conference speakers offer a rare depth of experience; I am honored to be among them.
