Ayurveda and the Mind – Part 2

 

Electrons revolve around the brain. Concept of idea.

Studies show that we have between 50,000 and 70,000 thoughts per day. The mind is a central repository for facts and information. It can be a very busy place and a source of great productivity, but at the same time it can also cause significant disturbance and anxiety…

Krsna in the Bhagavad-gita 6.6 shares a revealing insight:

“For him who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends; but for one who has failed to do so, his mind will remain the greatest enemy.”

So what practical steps can we take in our lives to make the mind our friend and not our foe? Following on from October’s session on Ayurveda and the Mind, due to popular demand, this is part 2!

There was so much to get through, as well as so many interesting and relevant questions and discussions, that it was obvious we needed to do another session on the topic.

This session will look at the following:

– A deeper look into the role the mind plays on our overall health
– How does diet affect our mind?
– What can I add to my diet to help with mental health?
– A look at meditation and how it affects our neurological pathways
– How can we incorporate lifestyle practises that will improve our mental state

She has run clinics across London, delivered numerous talks and seminars and has written a number of articles on different health topics. Her various talks on ‘Pregnancy’ and ‘Ayurveda for the Winter’ were very well received, and thus she is returning to continue with the ‘Ayurveda Series’, with this overview of Ayurveda in everyday life.
