To ensure we all have the same basic language and concepts so we can move forward more smoothly into more specialized information, we require the following prerequisites. Please consider carefully if you have completed these prerequisites. That is something you can gauge better than we can. You will need to have learned the following, and to let us know when and where you learned it:
Completing these prerequisites before the first Mentorship session will ensure we all have the same basic language and concepts in our backgrounds and will allow us to move forward more smoothly into more specialized information.
Our 2021 program is planned to consist of 15 live 1 ½ hour Zoom sessions. 10 sessions (the Monday sessions) Dr. Welch would facilitate exploration of case studies and questions from participants related to theory and practice of Ayurveda. Five sessions (the Wednesday sessions) will be time for participants to share their biggest successes and, “failures” in clinical and theoretical application of Ayurveda, so we can all gain important practical experience–one of the four qualities of effective physicians, without having to make all the mistakes ourselves! Pre-recorded lectures are also made available to participants.
Our 2021 mentorship program is full. We like to offer these programs every couple years. Here were the costs the last bunch of times we ran this. They are likely to be similar in the future:
Discounts available for payments received by two weeks before start date.
We cap registration at 15 participants. Our 2021 Mentorship program is full.
After ensuring you’ve met all the program prerequisites, kindly contact us to let us know your interest at office@DrClaudiaWelch.com and sign up for our newsletter to be sure you receive news about the next mentorship program details. We intend to offer a program every couple years.
We are foregoing a Mentorship run in 2023 because Dr. Welch needs to focus her attention on nurturing the Vedic Threads course she is scheduled to co-facilitate with Dr. Ramkumar through Satsangam.net. However, that Vedic Threads course should be a good option for anyone interested in the Mentorship program.
We are not sure when the next Mentorship will run but do contact us if you are interested in it so we can keep you posted re. the next run.
In 2021 the program design was 15 one and one half hour sessions. 10 of them devoted to case studies or questions from participants and five devoted to participants sharing stories of notable challenges and triumphs in clinical and daily life, in order so that we all could learn more quickly than having to make all the mistakes ourselves 🙂
Contact us and let us know you would like to be kept posted about any details. In the meantime, be sure to look at the prerequisites, so you have time to complete those before the next run.
We offer a discount for returning students. If you still have questions, encounter challenging cases, want to know further what you know and what you don’t, or to go deeper in your understanding, or enjoy good company and discussions, you may find more benefit. Many participants, including seasoned Ayurvedic Practitioners, have taken the Mentorship Program multiple times.
We fully understand if a participant has to miss a scheduled session – or part of one. While there are no refunds for missed sessions, we intend to record the sessions so you can listen to them later, so you can make it up that way.
We will work to make the recordings available within a couple days of the live sessions.
We plan to conduct the sessions via Zoom. So a computer and internet access is best, but you only need a way to call in to a conference number if that is what you have available. Once you register, you’ll be given specific instructions. To access recorded sessions, you will need a computer with internet access.
In the mentorships, Dr. Welch often makes previous relevant lectures available, at no extra cost, to current students, so they may access that information without taking up extra live time during current sessions. This adds extra lectures and value at no extra cost to you. You will have access to this information, along with your lectures and study sessions, until 5 months after the completion of your last class. Dr. Welch’s lectures and case studies covered in these mentorship sessions may also be edited and added to the libraries for future use.
Being mentored by Claudia in a small group setting was nothing short of magical. Our time was spent diving deep into the well of Ayurveda, exploring concepts and teachings that are at the root of our practice. It was so lovely to share this time with each of the participants as well; we may have been far apart in the physical sense but near in the ways of the heart. A beautiful way to learn and grow. – L.J.
Being a part of Dr Welch’s Mentorship Group has been such a rich experience for me. The depth of wisdom that Dr Welch generously shares is invaluable to any Ayurvedic practitioner. If you have been thinking about joining….no need to hesitate! It is a wonderful course. With gratitude, J.
If you are ready to take your studies to the next level, I strongly recommend Dr. Claudia’s Mentorship program. She is a brilliant teacher/student of Ayurveda and is somehow able to share this gift with us while at the same time being fully present and humble. I feel blessed that Dhanvantari allows our paths to cross again and again and that I am able to share this knowledge with my clients. If you can join a mentorship group just do it. I don’t know any other place for me where I can have the ear of such a gifted teacher in my continuing studies at home. – T.R.
What a wonderful opportunity… Dr. Claudia has the unique ability to help students at any level hone their understanding of Ayurveda and medicine. She is learned and skillful in the art of finding the right approach for each client and situation–I’ve learned so much from her and am so grateful. – K. G.
If you’re reading this statement, that means you’ve somehow come to learn about Dr. Claudia Welch. Congratulations for that. Knowing that I’ll probably never get a chance to support your life in any way other than writing this sentence: my hope is that you will consider reading her book, taking her online courses, attending a seminar, or any and all of the above. Good luck. – J. P.
I’ve done other online things before. I find the format and approach you’ve chosen works really well for me. I appreciate the …layout of the program, I like the forum, I like that I can listen to recordings over and over… I can’t think of anything that would improve things. As far as I’m concerned – you rocked the casbah on this.
Thank you so much for the amazing opportunity to be in the mentorship program. It has been a wonderful opportunity for me to broaden and deepen my understanding, as well as develop more flexibility in my way of thinking about things from the Ayurvedic view. I appreciate that it re-enforced something I already know – that the Vedic sciences are very subtle and powerful medicine. I also loved learning more and more how to become medicinal in my thoughts, words and deeds – in my heart. I love you Dr. Claudia. Thank you from the depths of my being. I look forward to another mentorship program… God willing ❤ (representing Canada in the 2016 program)–M.W.
