Good Company Meetings

Cures for many ailments of the modern world are often in daily life and a healthy daily routine, including the five basic tenets of health. Even if we can implement very small, positive changes in any of these practices, to whatever degree we each are able, that is a step in the right direction.

Even if it is logistically feasible for us to implement these tenets, it can still be hard. We seem to need support and inspiration to do this. And it is difficult or impossible for some of us to pay someone else big fees to supply this for us. Personal cheerleaders can cost a lot.

For some years, we held monthly, “Good Company Meetings” where Dr. Welch or other trained facilitators would hold a meeting to support practice of these tenets.

We stopped holding these meetings in February 2024, as Dr. Welch turned her focus to a new endeavor, to begin in May 2024: Menopause Chronicles: Exploring Transformation with Dr. Claudia Welch & Friends. We that new endeavor will support these tenets in its own way.

Along with the basic tenets of health, it is important to address other health concerns  including:

  • emotional, physical, or sexual suffering
  • eating disorders
  • addictions to substances including–but not limited to–opioids, alcohol & cigarettes

Here is a list of possible resources for support with those concerns.

If you would like an Ayurveda health consultation with one of our tutors–who can do remote consultations, and who are also facilitators for the Good Company Meetings, you could contact either Ivy Ingram or Emily Glaser RN, BSN, who also offers Jyotiṣa consultations. We have a list of other Ayurveda practitioners too. Just contact us for that.


We do not charge dues or fees for participation in these meetings. We do accept small donations, as they help cover the costs associated with hosting them. You are welcome to make a small donation through this, “Donate” button.
