The Love Therapies
Level Two Course | 100 Hours Accredited

Wise Earth Ayurveda has restored and is proud to offer training in the sadhana methodology of the earth-based approach to Pancha Karma (the five primordial processes of cleansing and rejuvenating body, mind and spirit in accord with Mother Nature’s cosmic rhythms of lunar, solar, seasonal cycles). The knowledge that Pancha Karma is based upon was handed down by the Vedic Seers, who recognized the universe’s energetic and subtle structures that composed human sentiency, and devised the methods to nourish, nurture and heal the body, mind and spirit.

This in-depth course re-invokes the ancient wisdom practices of Ayurveda, where students study the ancient methods for snehana and svedana therapies. Both therapies will be studied as as preparatory treatments to the five central therapies of Pancha Karma, as well as independently beneficial therapies to alleviate disease and re-establish excellent health of body, mind and senses.

Students also learn and experience a series of therapeutic cleansing of the sense organs, along with Nasya Therapy, or nasal insufflation for excellent prana. As in each Wise Earth course, we learn the beneficial sadhana practices for the guest or patient prior to beginning with these treatments.


Wise Earth Ayurveda: INNER MEDICINE EDUCATION SADHANA APPROACH TO DIAGNOSIS

Level Two Course | 100 Hours Accredited

Ayurveda’s origin is as eternal as the ancient Hindu Vedas. Its history may be traced back 7000 years, to the Vaidyas, the first physicians known on earth who developed and utilized the eightfold examination process for determining disease (vikriti) in Ayurveda. In Sanskrit, this is known as Ashta Vidha Pariksha. The ancient physicians who honored Mother Nature gained abundant knowledge from Her. In turn, they used their highly developed sense of intuition, cognition and observation to invent the first known physio-energetic instruments for diagnosis, treatment and wellness. Living in rhythmic cadence with the art of nature, these ancient healers cherished non-invasive forms of diagnosis and treatment, albeit, the first known forms of surgery is also accredited to these ancient Vaidyas. This extraordinary system of health, healing and harmony has survived the ravages of India’s Vedic history and is still in use today. Wise Earth Ayurveda’s methodology in sadhana – or, what we call Inner Medicine Healing – emulates Mother Nature’s ancient dharma of the Vedas.

Surrounded by the beautiful and nurturing atmosphere of sadhana life in practice, learn how harmonizing your own biorhythms and cosmic rhythm with nature’s authority awakens your power for “recognizing,” “reading” and “speaking” the characteristics of a vital, healthy and peaceful life. Begin to “see” notable signs of impairments with your eyes closed, as you learn to develop deep intuitive abilities.

These new intuitive skills will be applied immediately in a “Sadhana Clinic,” where you further develop your practical and intuitive skills for Inner Healing. Using the eight-fold system of diagnosis, students will gather the patient’s history by observation, physical examination and by cultivating their awareness of the patient’s imbalances. The next task will be the development of a customized wellness program, including home therapies, treatments and remedies for the patient. In addition, students will learn Wise Earth Ayurveda’s Inner Medicine Healing practices of sound, chant, breath, meditation and philosophy.

Wise Earth Ayurveda: PANCHA KARMA (PART III)

Level Three Course * | 250 Hours Accredited 
* Prerequisite: 6 credits of college level anatomy & physiology

Pancha Karma is the core of a vast mandala of therapies which are the best means for preventing disease, and promoting excellent health. In this mandala, there are two main categories, shodhana and shamana. Shodhana refers to Pancha Karma’s five main cleansing and elimination procedures, while shamana encompasses the supporting therapies that are the preparation and post-therapy measures for Pancha Karma proper. These treatments cajole and prepare bodily tissues, as well as the mind and spirit, for the central and primary course of elimination.

Both groups of therapies are explored at length in Wise Earth Ayurveda. However, the Pancha Karma Advanced Level studies consist of only of the study of shodhana therapies. Shodhana, the central and primary action in the mandala of treatments, includes five major therapeutic procedures, each of which will be learned:

  • Vamana (therapeutic emesis)
  • Virechana (therapeutic purgation)
  • Niruha Vasti (therapeutic decoction enema)
  • Anuvasana Vasti (therapeutic oily enema)
  • Nasya (therapeutic nasal insufflation)

In this hands-on practice course, you will observe, practice and perform a one-to-one examination and application of the main therapies through Wise Earth’s classical method of application of these primary Pancha Karma treatments. You study, learn and apply these therapies appropriately to help restore a person’s inner balance and the dhatus’ intrinsic memory.

Seasonal Influences on Pancha Karma Therapies

Ayurveda teaches our innate relationship to the six seasons. Seasonal nature and changes influence the biological systems resulting in an accumulation and aggravation of particular doshas. For instance, Kapha in aggravation occurs largely in Hemanta Ritu (winter season) and is rectified by Vasantika Vamana which is performed in the spring season. This therapy aids in the elimination of vitiated Kapha dosha, which in turn helps to prevent Kapha disorders and associated Pitta diseases such as bronchial asthma originating or settled in the place of Kapha.

In this hands-on practice course, you will observe, practice and perform a one-to-one examination and application of the main therapies through Wise Earth’s classical method of application of these primary Pancha Karma treatments. You study, learn and apply these therapies appropriately to help restore a person’s inner balance and the dhatus’ intrinsic memory.

VAMANA THERAPY

Vamana Karma (therapeutic emesis) is a procedure in which doshas (waste products or toxins) are eliminated through upper channels – i.e. mouth – wherein Kapha and Pitta excess is transported from throughout the body to amashaya (stomach and duodenum) by the specific shamana procedures and then eliminated by inducing the emesis. Kapha disorders and associated Pitta disorders originating are thereby removed from the system. Vamana procedure is indicated for the expulsion of Kapha dosha. Kapha dosha is aggravated in both winter and spring seasons. Hence, Vamana, emesis, is performed in spring season approximately in the month of March and April. Emesis is prodded by specific Ayurveda medicinal decoctions, which go to amashaya – the main seat of Kapha. If there is accumulation of Kapha in amashaya, digestion of food or drug cannot takes place properly. With the help of Vamana Karma, amashaya shuddhi (cleansing of the stomach) occurs to allow digestion of food and medicine to take place properly.

VIRECHANA THERAPY

Virechana Karma (therapeutic purgation) is core to the five Panchakarma therapies, that eliminate excessive vitiated dosha, in general, and Pitta dosha, in particular, from the body through the rectum. Virechana’s ancient purgative medicines cleanse Pitta ama, clear the lower pathways of the body and purify the blood to cleanse the stomach , sweat glands, small intestines, colon, kidneys, liver, and spleen, clearing the toxins from the body.

The treatment concentrates on the toxins that are accumulated in the liver and gall bladder. The gastro-intestinal tract is also cleansed by Virechana therapy. This treatment is usually administered for three days after Vamana treatment. Depending on the patient’s condition, Virechana can be administered directly after preparatory treatments, without undergoing the Vamana therapy that precedes Virechana.

The assessment of a successful Virechana experience is based on various parameters called, “Shuddhi“ (cleansing). These criteria are:

  • Vaigiki (number of bouts of stool passed),
  • Manaki (quantitative measurement of stools),
  • Laingiki (symptoms based assessment), and
  • Antyaki (assessment based on end point of purgation).

Eliminated doshas are classified on the basis of number of bouts of evacuation as low, medium, and high quantities (i.e., Hina, Madhyama, and Uttamshuddhi). These are 10, 20, and 30 times, respectively.

VASTI THERAPY

  • Anuvasana Vasti
  • Niruha Vasti

According to Ayurveda’s classical pathogenesis, all diseases begin with the Agnimandya, which leads to formation of Ama. Ama is the utmost important causative factor for various diseases. When Vata is associated with Ama resulting in Amavata, it becomes one of the most challenging diseases to treat. Vata dosha is most powerful among three doshas, and it controls both Pitta and Kapha doshas. Amavata belongs to both Abhyantara channel as well as Madhyama channel of diseases. The pathogenesis starts in the Annavaha Srotasa and then extends through Madhyama with special inclination for Kapha sites, especially the joints. In such advanced condition, patient suffers reduced functional capacity with severe stiffness and crippling deformity of joints.

Ayurveda advocates the use of Vasti therapies to assuage the body’s healing instinct and immunity. In Pancha Karma, Vasti therapy is defined as the most important procedure in Panchakarma treatment because of its versatile nature. It is used to eliminate the ama that has accumulated in the colon from all over the body. Vasti normalizes functioning of the Vata in the body. Once the Vata has returned to its normal functioning, the Vasti therapy is then used for nourishing and revitalizing the system. There are two main types of Vasti in the Pancha Karma mandala of therapies:

Anuvasana Vasti – the unctuous practice of administering a small amount of medicated oils or ghee through the rectum. This enema remains in the body for some time without causing harm. This form of enema is given before Niruha (decoction) enema. Anuvasana enema moistens dry tissues and organs, reduces hyperactive digestion and Vata disorders, including nervous conditions.

Niruha Vasti or Asthapana (non-unctuous) — this is a highly beneficial herbal decoction enema which can be mixed with milk and drops of sesame or medicated oil. Niruha is given to those with abdominal pain, distention, tumors, gout, splenic diseases, diarrhea (without other associated diseases), chronic fever, runny nose, obstructed semen, gas, or feces, enlarged scrotum, urinary stones, amenorrhea, or severe Vata disorders. It provides health to the healthy and gives strength to the tissues that are weak. Symptoms of proper Vasti include feeling lightness in the body.


Wise Earth Ayurveda: THE HEALING DIET FOR RECOVERY

Level Three Course | 100 Hours Accredited

Wise Earth Ayurveda’s Healing Diet is designed specifically for recovery from illness and is predominantly sattvic in nature. The sages have proven that peaceful and nourishing foods form Mother Nature can heal our worse illness. The Healing Diet is prepared for all metabolic types by restoring agni, digestive fire, and allowing the body to adjust to its newly attuned state of revitalization. In addition to use during illness and the seasonal junctions, The Healing Diet may be used as a light, rejuvenating regimen to reduce fatigue, excess weight, and stress from time to time throughout the year.

According to the classic Ayurvedic text known as the Sushruta Samhita, a sattvic diet gladdens the heart, nurtures the body, revives memory, and brings our inner rhythms into proper alignment with the cosmic rhythms. Emotions, activities, or foods may be referred to as sattvic when they reflect the qualities of peacefulness, purity, and harmony. When they reflect the qualities of transformation, dynamic progress, and stimulation, they are rajasic; when they bring forth the qualities of inertia and dullness, they are tamasic.

As a general rule, sattvic foods should make up the greater part of the dietary recommendation for Pitta (fire) types, and to a large extent for Vata (air) types. Some rajasic foods and, to a lesser extent, tamasic foods are also necessary for these two types to maintain vital function within the body. Kapha (water) types fare best when the greater portion of their diet is made up of rajasic food and, to a lesser extent, sattvic and tamasic foods.

This diet should not be used as a mainstay year-round, however, since the body is made up of all five elements and needs the stimuli of the universe’s three gunas (cosmic energies that create and sustain life): Sattva (peace-producing energy),rajas (activity-producing energy), and tamas (restproducing energy).

Wise Earth Ayurveda: LIVING AHIMSA MEDITATION

Level One Course | 50 Hours Accredited

Based in the ancient Vedic System of Japa-Ajapa ( a Sanskrit compounded word that infers putting an end to the cycles of birth). Living Ahimsa Meditation is a profound practice for witnessing consciousness. In this practice we cultivate awareness, strengthen inner harmony, and discover that everything is God. Meditation is a primary practice for easing daily stress and tension. This practice teaches us to develop pure concentration; that is, it directs the mind to stillness. The Sanskrit word for meditation is “dhyanam” meaning to “discern.” The Upanishads says, “meditation reveals the mind.” Living Ahimsa Meditation is an effective means of cultivating a state of continuous flow of awareness throughout our daily activity.

As a dedicated practice, the Living Ahimsa Meditation enlightens the spirit, while expanding the mind and its inner pathways of consciousness. This meditation practice is rooted ion the core humane principle of Ahimsa, where we bring kindness and awareness to our thoughts, speech and action. It is an intricate practice woven into our daily movements. Living ahimsa Meditation practice helps us to attain a deep state of serenity and peacefulness, whilst reconciling karmas and dissolving those we have outgrown. By reciting the mantra, you are creating a continuum of sound vibration that invokes awareness that flows from the mudra to mantra and back again to the sound of the mantra. The vibrational field created by reciting the mantra keeps the mind in stillness. Your audible sound becomes connected in infinite circuitry—a circle of beads set in the numerological cosmic force of 108 to fortify energy while cleansing/ridding negative karma. The Rishis informed that 108 repetitions of the mantra firmly plants its vibration into the brain.

Note: Participants are required to bring a prayer mala, rosary, to class.


Wise Earth Ayurveda: VEDIC SANSKRIT CHANTING

Level One Course | 50 Hours Accredited

Vedic Sanskrit Chanting covers a special compilation of classical Vedic Chants, which Wise Earth School recognizes as key to evoking personal and spiritual sound. Rhythmic speech, such as Vedic Chants, holds tremendous power to evoke our inner song, and is the source of awareness and intelligence. The primordial sounds of Sanskrit, when chanted with its appropriate meters, carry potent effects for healing the heart in its deepest space. These chants and their melodies are produced, arranged and taught in meticulous form. Wise Earth Ayurveda sadhana practices are taught in conjunction with the chants to help students merge sound with breath, breath with movement, and movement into sacred action.

According to the Rishis, human voice and its rhythmic speech was the first life-generating sadhana of sound to descend to the Earth. Saraswati, the original river goddess – who has now absorbed the primordial Goddess – Vac’s – qualities of speech, art, literature and music – imparted this knowledge to the celestial musicians and dancers, namely gandarvas and apsaras. These divinities taught the “act of song” to the great sages: Bharata, Hanuman, Narada, and others — who brought rhythmic speech and music to the earthly plane. These sages advocated rhythmic speech and music as a means of transcending the physical and mental planes. The sounds chanted evoke a sense of wonder and instills harmony with the spirit that dwells in all things.


WISE EARTH HEALING PASSES : YOGA

Level One Course | 50 Hours Accredited

Wise Earth Healing Passes is a unique primordial sound based methodology of yoga pioneered by Maya Tiwari. Micro-pranic movement combined with Vedic primordial sound forms the basis for this practice, developed specifically to counteract effects of the hastening pace of modern life. In this program, Wise Earth School introduces yet another ancient Vedic storehouse of knowledge that has been lost to the education and practice of Yoga in India and elsewhere since around the end of the 10th century, A.D. Wise Earth’s Healing Passes embodies a complete practice of yoga, wherein each posture fortifies a specific major prana, which in turn, evokes the body’s subtle strength, memory and intuition to flow in harmony with universal awareness.

Many forms of Yoga in practice today are largely concerned with posture and breath. But the Rishis understood yoga as a profound means of awakening consciousness; not only in the formation of the asanas, but also in the collection of stillness within mind, senses and body. They set out the sublime art of Yoga as a sacred practice to harmonize the cosmic rhythms with breath, breath with movement, movement with primordial sounds so that we may strengthen primeval memory, the collective consciousness that fosters awareness. They understood that prana is connected to cosmic memory and that this life force – when cultivated to flow in harmony with nature’s rhythms – awakens consciousness. In other words, Wise Earth Healing Passes restores the original intention behind Yoga. This practice unites posture with breath, breath with memory, memory with thought, and thought with consciousness.

The goal of the Wise Earth Healing Passes is to integrate posture, breath and primordial bija sounds to foster a healthy body and intuitive mind. Wise Earth Healing Passes emulate and coordinate each of the five vital pranas in the body with a particular lunar phase. These Passes focus on Maya Tiwari’s philosophy of the three distinct aspects of yoga: the cosmic memory and lunar rhythms each posture evokes, the vital breath (prana) each posture stimulates, and the physical posture itself. Wise Earth Healing Passes also focus on replenishing both the feminine and masculine primordial energies, to balance inner rhythms and restore abundant health and longevity.
