Discovering Ayurveda: A Library Program and a Reading List

ayurveda

A holistic medical system that originated in India several thousand years ago, Ayurveda aims to integrate and balance the body, mind, and spirit. It teaches us to live in harmony with the world around us by balancing our naturally-occurring physical and mental tendencies with the limitations of our lives. This balance is believed to lead to contentment and health and to help prevent illness. 

On July 26 at 2pm, join Certified Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant. Aruna Raobeg, on this unique journey of self discovery using the concepts of Ayurveda, a sister science to Yoga, that will be exciting, revealing and transforming!  

You will understand the concept central to Ayurveda called “Dosha”, which determines our characteristic qualities– why we behave in certain ways, have certain food cravings, mood swings, and energy levels, and also influences our career goals and passions. The session will reveal the different traits and attributes to look for in each dosha, help us determine our particular “dosha” and reveal how to optimize it with simple home remedies, diets and daily lifestyle tuneups.  After revealing how to identify your particular body type, and your individual constitution, you will be shown how to care for your positives or natural strengths and how to subdue the negative attributes.

Come for a lively interactive two hour forum that will simplify this ancient Vedic science and help you rediscover yourself and recharge your mind and body.

Here are some titles on Ayurveda available with your Library card that can help you gain a deeper insight  into this ancient system of holistic health and wisdom.
