It’s time to plan ahead and mark your calendar for the upcoming New World Ayurveda Summer Intensives! All will be held in beautiful Southern Maine, where you can extend your stay and immerse in nature’s beauty along New England’s rocky coast or the majestic White Mountains of New Hampshire.

The New World Ayurveda School Intensives are training offerings that supplement the Practitioner Training programs. Intensives are typically 5 or 6 days in length, 8-10 hours per day. Below is a listing of our Intensive educational offerings for Summer, 2013:

The course is divided between classroom and practice hours. The theoretical basis for the purification therapies as well as the indications and contraindications for each is presented. Proper preparation and post Panchakarma care is emphasized. The understanding of the techniques in terms of the five koshas (levels of life – physical, energetic, mental/emotional, karmic/causal and spiritual) is also emphasized, as well as an in-depth understanding of how to select the appropriate aromas and Abhyanga oils for your treatments.These therapies are wonderful complement to a Massage Therapist or Ayurvedic Practitioner practice and can significantly expand the offerings in your practice.

AYURVEDIC PHILOSPHY & MEDITATION INTENSIVE: An experiential immersion into expanding consciousness
The key to truly understanding Ayurvedic philosophy is not only knowing but also experiencing how consciousness works. Ayurveda is, in essence, consciousness-based medicine. We have the power to heal from the inside out. In order to experience this truth, we must immerse ourselves in contacting and integrating higher consciousness. This deeply transformative intensive will take you on a journey of knowing and experiencing what the enlightened masters have emphasized about the benefits of meditation.
A welcome retreat from the demands of our daily life, this week-long immersion will offer both an explanation of the Ayurvedic philosophy of consciousness and healing, and an experience of how we utilize consciousness to heal. We will explore the development of higher states of consciousness as well as gain an intellectual and personal experience of this core element of Ayurvedic philosophy.
You can participate in person in Gorham, Maine or live via Internet streaming. Due to the power of meditating in a group and receiving expert guidance and feedback on your experiences as they occur, this course will not be recorded or made available as a self-study program.
DATES: Sunday, August 11 – Thursday, August 15th, 8:30am-5:30pm; Friday, August 16th, 8:30am-12:30pm
Please note that the daily schedule will include several meditation sessions and therefore your week should be approached as a retreat.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: July 11th, 2013
PREREQUSITE: Heart-Based Meditation Training (or equivalent approved by faculty)
TUITION: $500, or $300 as an add-on to either the Panchakarma Training Level 1 and/or Ayurveda and Yoga intensives

AYURVEDA AND YOGA INTENSIVE – Live online or in person, Gorham, Maine
This 50-hour intensive can be taken in person or remotely from any location via live internet streaming. Recordings will be made available to those who need to miss a day or want to review the material after the course is complete.
This intensive is designed to enable students to utilize and teach the art and science of Yoga as a healing therapy from the perspective of Ayurveda. Specifically, we will discuss in detail how the healing process takes place in the context of Yoga, how to remove Ama (toxins) on the physical, mental and emotional level with Yoga, and how to balance the doshas and chakras with asana practice. We will explore the chakras in detail, including their functions and associated imbalances, diseases and their role in healing. This approach to yoga is unique in that it emphasizes how to direct consciousness and breath to facilitate healing on multiple levels. This course includes both practice (approx. two 90-minute sessions per day) and an academic understanding of the relationship between Yoga and Ayurveda, particularly in the context of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.
August 18th – August 22rd 8:30am-5:30pm EST
