The Ayurvedic Secret to Mental Health & Emotional Bliss - The Sattvic Mind is an Ayurvedic self-improvement model designed to help you achieve a strong sense of self and complete peace of mind - the essentials to aptly respond to your modern day life's stress and negativity with equanimity.

This course will show you practical, actionable plans for your modern day life, how to identify your Red Light, Yellow Light and Green light behaviors and arrest dangerous behaviors at the nascent stage itself. You will learn day-to-day techniques designed to help you cope with the particular stresses of modern living – like learning how to say “no” more often at work or even planning fun – yes, planning fun - to build a buffer against anxiety. This course is full of targeted tricks that are deceptively simple, but can potentially change the way you live! 

 

Evolved and holistic, Ayurveda tells us the mind is an infinite, complex organism, which is bound with our bodies, actions and behaviors. Every thought impacts our body. And every bodily action echoes in the mind.  But understanding the mind-body connect is just one-half of the equation, the other is using this connect to rewire neural pathways! In other words, change our physical, emotional and mental habits to become truly, kinetically healthy. 

To help you find this model of health and well-being, the Ayurveda Experience is proud to bring to you a unique, exciting course: The Ayurvedic Secret to Mental Health & Emotional Bliss - The Sattvic Mind

Through this course, you will understand the complex Ayurvedic model of the mind in a fun, relatable format and how to apply that knowledge to change your habits and your life in the NOW. From the critical and little-known importance of the environment in which you partake food, spices and herbs to balance your energies, the right breathing exercises and meditation techniques for your particular emotional issues, to the detailed management of extremely common conditions like depression and ADHD, this course covers a wide range of topics that can transform your life!

Here's your takeaway - among many more things, you will learn:

  • How to stay calm even through life-altering events such as loss of livelihood, divorce or caring for an elderly parent

    Mary Thompson, C.A.S., P.K.S

    A founding member and former Secretary of the California Association of Ayurvedic Medicine, Mary graduated from the first graduating class of the California College of Ayurveda in 1997 and now is a senior teacher there.

    She is a Certified Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist and Pancha Karma Specialist and has also studied in India in 1999 at the International Academy of Ayurveda, spending time on field trips to Ayurvedic schools, clinics, and hospitals.

    In 2008, she received the Charaka Award for Excellence in Ayurvedic Teaching and was given the title "Ayurvedacharya" (respected teacher of Ayurveda).

    Before finding Ayurveda, Mary was an elementary school teacher and a child-care director. As a child-care director for school-aged children, she was concerned about the rate of diagnosis of ADD/ADHD among this population. One program that she worked with had about 10% of the children on medication for ADD/ADHD. She thought that medicating this age group was a frightening trend. When she looked at their lives and into their lunchboxes, she thought that there had to be a solution in diet and lifestyle, but didn’t know exactly what that solution was.

    This is what initially spurred her into the study of Ayurveda with the intention of working with this population. Mary saw this condition as being a family condition, as everyone in the family was stressed and trying to manage their stresses with a typical American diet. She felt that Ayurveda would give her a greater insight into the cause of this imbalance and a template for its treatment. 

    In this course, Mary explains in-depth how to help ADHD/ADD with Ayurveda.
