Tue, July 23
10:30 AM-12:30 PM Pulse: Determine Your Dosha Prakruti and Vikruti
Examination of the pulse reveals your prakruti, your unique constitution or the proportions of the doshas - vata, pitta and kapha - present at the time of conception. The vikruti pulse shows the current state of imbalance.

2:30-4:30 PM Explore Organ Pulses and Balance Your Organs’ Health
Every organ in our body has a pulse of its own. This pulse tells us whether each organ is in balance, under stress, or weak. We will learn how to detect each organ’s pulse and how to balance it with herbs, diet and lifestyle.

Wed, July 24
10:30 AM-12:30 PM Vastu Shastra: Create a Happy Home Environment
Vastu Shastra is the Vedic science that shows us how to create harmony within our home using positive energies and proper flow of energy, correct placement and right direction. Every direction has an influence on the doshas.

2:30-4:30 PM Yantras for Self-Healing
Yantras are mystical, geometric designs or numeric energy patterns that draw in the cosmic life force and promote healing. Yantras can be connected to the planets, mantras or deities. Dr. Lad will teach us how they are used for purifying water, food and medicines, as well as for contemplation, concentration and meditation.

Thu, July 25
10:30 AM-12:30 PM Using Your Astrological Chart to Support Perfect Health
Ayurveda uses Vedic astrology to show us how to heal, transform and move from dis-ease toward well-being. Dr. Lad will shed light on this ancient subject which can help us realize our highest potential.

2:30-4:30 PM Palmistry: Self-healing thru Palm Reading
Our hands can teach us about ourselves. We use them to take action, to touch, to create and build a better world. Knowledge of the lines and mounds on the palms helps us improve our health, achieve our goals and change our destiny.

Fri, July 26
10:30 AM-12:30 PM Children’s Health
Childhood is the kapha stage of life. During this stage, children are more susceptible to coughs, colds, congestion, childhood asthma, flu, allergies and childhood obesity. Dr. Lad will teach simple ways to promote health and balance in kids.

2:30-4:30 PM Ayurvedic Nutrition for Every Stage of Life
Ayurveda teaches that there are three main stages of life – the kapha stage, pitta stage and vata stage. These stages of life are connected to childhood, adulthood and old age. Learn what nourishes your body, mind and soul during each of the main stages of your life.

Sat, July 27
10:30 AM-12:30 PM Aromatherapy for the Doshas
Our sense of smell is intimately connected to our moods, emotions, brain chemistry and consciousness. Essential oils and incense can be used to pacify the doshas, bringing calm, stimulation or grounding, as needed.

2:30-4:30 PM An Ayurvedic Classification of Dreams
Ayurveda classifies dreams as vata, pitta or kapha. Dr. Lad will explain to us why we dream and how study and analysis of our dreams bring clarity and understanding in our lives and relationships.

Sun, July 28
10:30 AM-12:30 PM Role of the Guru in Spiritual Life
The Guru purifies our hearts and shows the way through his or her example. He guides the disciple via thought, word and deed. The Guru’s guidance leads us from darkness or ignorance to our own inner light, from the known to the unknown, from the manifest to the unmanifest.

3:00-5:00 PM Ganesha Puja
Ganesha is the elephant-headed deity who removes obstacles, grants education, knowledge, wisdom and success in all beginnings. Dr. Lad will perform a puja to Lord Ganesha. Puja is a form of devotion and love in which we offer flowers, fruits, milk, honey, ghee, incense, light, mantras, water and other auspicious substances. It serves to purify our body and mind.
