Khabir Southwick - Internationally recognized Ayurvedic health-care practitioner, master herbalist, public speaker and author with over 20 years of clinical experience. This course is presented for those who are interested in, studying or actively practicing [clinical] Ayurvedic healthcare. "These courses are my response to the many people over the years who have requested authentic and substantive hands-on training in Ayurvedic health-care (kayachikitsa). Most courses on this subject are often unclear about clinical applications, overly detailed or just too academic. For those who don't know much Sanskrit traditional courses on Ayurveda can also be confusing.
The goal of these workshops is to help [western] students and practitioners of Ayurveda to better grasp the functional and clinical applications of Ayurveda. The classes are straightforward and clear without much Sanskrit terminology or references to ancient texts.
Being a small group and having 3 meals a day together provides an excellent environment for questions and open discussion. Combined with Ayurvedic meals and prominent guest speakers each workshop will be a deep immersion in Ayurveda ." Khabir
