Foundations of Āyurveda Part II, Lesson 1 – Introduction: Cultivating Subtle Perception

ONLINE COURSE CO-TAUGHT BY DR. CLAUDIA WELCH AND DR. ROBERT SVOBODA

Welcome! We’re glad you are here.

This 1.1-hour lesson is mainly an orientation for students taking the full Foundations of Āyurveda Part II course, so it may hold limited utility unless you are doing so. We explore the value of cultivating an ability to perceive what is happening inside the body and mind, and how the full course may help facilitate this.

Regarding this particular course, you should know it is one excerpted lesson of our Foundations of Āyurveda Part II course. We are offering each lesson of that course as a stand-alone lesson–like this one–so that people can explore just one topic of interest but, if it seems a little out of context standing alone, it is because it is indeed out of context. But we feel the information presented will be valuable nonetheless.

If you would like more information on this course than what you’ll find on this page, weather it is approved for NAMA credits, etc., kindly peruse the home page–including the FAQs– for Foundations of Āyurveda Part II.

Textbooks: Dr. Vasant Lad’s Textbook of Ayurveda, Volume 1: Fundamental Principles of Ayurveda and Textbook of Ayurveda, Volume 2, A Complete Guide to Clinical Assessment, You can go through this course without either text, relying only on our lectures and handouts, but throughout our lessons we recommended readings from one or the other of these books, to enhance the information.

Drs. Svoboda and Welch answer the question, “When you learned Āyurveda, was it as condensed and concise as the information you present in this course?”

IS THIS THE RIGHT COURSE FOR ME?

If you are more interested in improving your own personal health and daily practices than in studying Āyurveda more extensively, Dr. Welch’s Healthier Hormones course might be a better starting point – whether you are a man or a woman.

If, however, you have taken the Healthier Hormones course, or wish to focus on, or go further, into the Āyurvedic perspective and teachings on life and health, then Foundations of Āyurveda Part I might be a good option for you. That course is a prerequisite for Foundations of Āyurveda Part II.

If you have already taken Foundations of Āyurveda Part I or equivalent study, it would be best to take the entire Foundations of Āyurveda Part II course. This particular course you are considering is one lesson of Foundations of Āyurveda Part II, and could be good for you if you already have studied Āyurveda and just want to brush up on this one topic.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

By the end of this course, if you have kept up with the memorization and study needed to assimilate what is taught, you will have achieved the following:

  1. Orient ourselves to where we are and through what terrain we will navigate in this course
  2. Be introduced to the Daoist concept of neiguan, and explore how it relates to diagnosis
  3. Consider the importance of learning the language and concepts of Āyurveda in cultivating neiguan
