Ayurveda Home Remedies – Strenghten Your Health

Date:Aug 1-6 2021
Location:Westerwald
Register:W210801-2
Title:Ayurveda Home Remedies – Strenghten Your Health
Instructor:Dr. Sivakaran Namboothiri

Ayurveda is the world's oldest holistic healing system. Ayurvedic treatment aims at balancing the Doshas to neutralize the disease process. By balancing the Doshas, the root of the disease process is cut off.
The basic rule is - whatever we can do for ourselves to improve our own health is more effective in the long run than what another person can do for us. As long as we are not living in harmony with our Prakriti (constitution) we cannot expect to be really healed by any method. Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of Ahara and Vihara (food and regimen) based on different Ritu kaalaas (seasons).Thereby maintaining a healthy state of body and mind.
Ayurvedic remedies work on a subtle internal level by correcting and improving the life force. Satwik or pure lifestyle gives peace and clarity of mind.
Our food ingredients like Ginger, Curcumin, Pepper, Cumin seed, coconut oil, sesame, coriander, Fenugreek, Garlic etc are the very powerful tools for many  disease conditions. As Taittiriyopanishad  says "Ahamannam,  Ahamannam,  Ahamannam,  Ahamannada" (I am food,  I am the eater of food and I eat  the eater  of food) and "Annam Brahma " (food  is Brahma).

Vedic Horoscope Level 1- Live Online

Location:Live Online via Zoom
Register:L210904-6
Title:Vedic Horoscope Level 1 - Live Online
Instructor:Ram Vakkalanka

Our lives are shaped by the choices we make. They are based on deep-rooted tendencies of the past without being fully aware of the present. In a way, we are prisoners of our own past and knowingly or unknowingly allow the past to determine our present and influence our future.
Understanding ourselves is the key to breaking out of the prison of negativity and limitations created by the past, living in the present and making choices. Such enlightened choices can lead to the unfolding of your fullest potential and the realisation of your aspirations and dreams.
Jyotisha, or Vedic astrology, is a powerful tool that can help you understand yourself deeply.  It is a science that sheds light on your life path and makes you aware of the direction to move in, where the dangerous curves, bumps and ditches are on the way and how to avoid them. It can lead to an understanding of the karmic tendencies buried deep in your psyche, which control thinking and behavior patterns, so that you can free yourself from the past and unleash your full potential.  
Astrology also offers a useful way to challenge relationships. It helps improve relationships by understanding why spouses/children/friends behave the way they do. It also provides insight into the behaviour and motivation of your employees in your professional life and can also be useful in many ways for teachers and/or practitioners of yoga, feng shui, reiki, ayurveda as well as other alternative systems of medicine.  
In this workshop series you will gain insights into past karma through your birth chart. In addition, the basics of karmic principles and Vedic astrology will be explored.

•  a quiet room without disturbance
•  Yoga mat or carpet

Advanced yoga teachers' training- A7: Yoga Vasishta

Date:Oct 15-24 2021
Location:Bad Meinberg
Register:B211015-2
Title:Advanced yoga teachers' training- A7: Yoga Vasishta
Instructor:Swami Saradananda; Rama Schwab; Ramashakti Sikora

The Yoga Vashishta is an unbeatable guide to happiness in the midst of all the vicissitudes of life! Look forward to a very special, once-in-a-lifetime seminar. The highest philosophical wisdom will be sensitively, intuitively and wisely interpreted and explained.

The Yoga Vasishta is one of the most important Jnana Yoga texts. Prince Rama fees despair because of the suffering he sees in the world; he seeks a deeper meaning to life. His guru, the wise Vasishta, explains to him the highest wisdom of Vedanta, the philosophy of Oneness. The work is full of incredible stories - sometimes funny, often surreal, in parallel universes and worlds - to show us the illusionary nature of this world and our usual notions of "me" and "world".

But, the Yoga Vasishta is not a work solely for scholars and world-renouncing ascetics. Its basic message is: realise that behind the seemingly relative world there is an absolute manifested Truth. Realise that you are in fact Brahman, pure consciousness and break free from all limiting identifications. This is the way to overcome suffering and live happily.

Register:L211016-4
Title:Vedic Horoscope - Level 2 - Live Online Series
Instructor:Ram Vakkalanka

Our life is shaped by the choices we make. Most of the time we make choices based on deep rooted past tendencies rather than full awareness of the present. In a way, we are prisoners of our own past and knowingly or unknowingly allow the past to determine our present and influence our future.

Understanding yourself is the key to breaking out of the prison of negativity and limitations created by your past, living in the present and making choices without the blinders of the past affecting your full vision of life. Such enlightened choices can lead to the unfolding of your fullest potential and realization of your aspirations and dreams.

Jyotisha or Vedic Astrology is a powerful tool that can help you understand yourself deeply and profoundly. Jyotisha is a Vedic science that throws light on the path of your life, makes you aware of which direction you are heading in, where are the dangerous curves, speed bumps and ditches on the path and how to avoid them so that life sails smoothly. It can help you understand the Karmic tendencies deeply buried within your psyche that drive your thinking and behavioural patterns. It can help you liberate yourself from the past and unleash your fullest potential.

Astrology offers a useful method for scrutinizing relationships also. It helps improve your relationships by helping you understand why your spouse/children/friends behave the way they do. It helps you in professional life by giving insights into the behaviour and motivation of your co-workers. Apart from those interested in Astrology, teachers and/or practitioners of Yoga, Feng Shui, Reiki, Ayurveda as well as other alternative medicinal systems will also find Vedic Astrology useful in many ways in their professions. 

Join us in this series of workshops by Ram Vakkalanka to gain insights into your past karma through your birth chart. Basics of karmic principles as well Vedic Astrology will be explored at this workshop.

Vedic Horoscope - Level 3 - Live Online Series

Date:Nov 20 - Dec 18 2021
Location:Live Online via Zoom
Register:L211120-5
Title:Vedic Horoscope - Level 3 - Live Online Series
Instructor:Ram Vakkalanka

Our life is shaped by the choices we make. Most of the time we make choices based on deep rooted past tendencies rather than full awareness of the present. In a way, we are prisoners of our own past and knowingly or unknowingly allow the past to determine our present and influence our future.

Understanding yourself is the key to breaking out of the prison of negativity and limitations created by your past, living in the present and making choices without the blinders of the past affecting your full vision of life. Such enlightened choices can lead to the unfolding of your fullest potential and realization of your aspirations and dreams.

Jyotisha or Vedic Astrology is a powerful tool that can help you understand yourself deeply and profoundly. Jyotisha is a Vedic science that throws light on the path of your life, makes you aware of which direction you are heading in, where are the dangerous curves, speed bumps and ditches on the path and how to avoid them so that life sails smoothly. It can help you understand the Karmic tendencies deeply buried within your psyche that drive your thinking and behavioural patterns. It can help you liberate yourself from the past and unleash your fullest potential.

Astrology offers a useful method for scrutinizing relationships also. It helps improve your relationships by helping you understand why your spouse/children/friends behave the way they do. It helps you in professional life by giving insights into the behaviour and motivation of your co-workers. Apart from those interested in Astrology, teachers and/or practitioners of Yoga, Feng Shui, Reiki, Ayurveda as well as other alternative medicinal systems will also find Vedic Astrology useful in many ways in their professions. 

Join us in this series of workshops by Ram Vakkalanka to gain insights into your past karma through your birth chart. Basics of karmic principles as well Vedic Astrology will be explored at this workshop.

For the workshop you only need:

  • a quiet room without disturbance
  • Yoga mat or rug
  • stable internet connection
  • Computer or tablet (if necessary smartphone) with camera and microphone with which you can dial in via zoom.
