Dr. Claudia Welch The 20 Gunas- The Language of Āyurveda: January 26, 2019
Saturday, January 26 - 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Led by Dr. Claudia Welch
The 20 gunas, or qualities, of Ayurveda provide a foundation for understanding and describing the world--including food, herbs, substances, emotions, mental states, the dosas of Ayurveda and, indeed anything that exists.
They provide language for understanding how to diagnose and treat physical, emotional or mental disequilibrium. In this workshop we will explore each guna, taste its secrets and intricacies and how we might use the gunas to great benefit. We also plan to relate them to the understanding of vāta, pitta, and kapha, the three dosas of Ayurveda.
Dr Claudia Welch is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, an Āyurvedic practitioner and educator, and the author of several books including Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life: Achieving Optimal Health and Wellness Through Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine and Western Science and, The Four Qualities of Effective Physicians: Practical Ayurvedic Wisdom for Modern Physicians.
