Ayurveda Psychology for a Luminous Mind and Understanding Mental Personality Types for Improved Relationships
Limited Capacity seats available

Join internationally acclaimed Vedic master teacher and author, Acharya Shunya as she teaches the most sublime lessons of mind management and inner mental rejuvenation as per the science of Ayurveda, that can be combined with the knowledge of Yoga Sutra’s (beginner or advanced) for even greater self awareness and self control. 

Ayurveda and Yoga are sister sciences and both sciences value Pure Being. Did you know that Ayurveda medicine, besides teaching ways to own a healthy body, also offers a profound and in depth psychology to support a healthy and happy mind? Join Acharya Shunya to understand how you can help your own mind be more calm, balanced and blissful, in spite of challenges and old patterns. 

There are three constituent energy states (gunas) used in Ayurvedic practice. Shunya explores how these gunas influence one's mood, outlook, and activity level. Participants also learn about five states of mind and how they contribute to mental balance/imbalance as well as how food affects the gunas, in addition to the importance of practice of non-attachment and dharma. This approach to psychology is unique as well as valuable because it allows for a paradigm shift away from the disease model and toward a model for achieving and sustaining mental health.

Get ready for a quantum leap in your consciousness: 


  • Learn practical ways to arrest the mind and its natural tendency for negativity 
  • Begin functioning at a level that modern science labels as the super mind.  
  • Learn to self arrest unhealthy brain/mind patterns and activate latent joy and health
  • Learn to use the mind to your personal advantage and improved relationships. 
  • Learn about five states of mind and how they contribute to mental balance/imbalance 
  • Learn about how food affects the mind and what should you eat!

Awakening Vedic Sadhana – the 9 Spiritual Steps to Self Knowledge
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

The ancient Vedic tradition, which predates and informs Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, has identified core mental and spiritual self-discipline practices called Sadhana Chatushtayam.  The same impulse for Self-knowledge we have today, guided the Vedic sages thousands of years ago to give humanity this profound 9 – step sadhana. Sadhana is a dedicated spiritual discipline consistently maintained over time. This unique practice helps to clarify the mind and make it more open to discerning truth from untruth, light from darkness, and reality from that which appears as reality. When applied mindfully, sadhana leads to spiritual breakthroughs and spontaneous awakening of spiritual health and consciousness. Vedic Sadhana prepares the seeker to lead an awakened inner life - approaching the highest knowledge of Self with clarity, without confusions and illusions. It can lead us on a path to greater self-awareness and greater dharma in all our engagements.

Join Aparna Amy Lewis, Dean of the Spiritual Studies Program at Vedika Global wisdom school in California, as she shares practical ways you can align with these 9 steps in your own life. Learn how this one-of-a–kind sadhana discipline can deepen your Yoga practice, both on and off the mat.

These Sadhana practices will help you to:

  • Learn ways to make healthier life choices and feel better about yourself every day
  • Deepen all of your relationships and build stronger communities
  • Gain self-confidence from personal accountability and consistency in spiritual practices and beliefs.
