The Healing Diet includes 10 weeks of Audio and Video Self-Guided Study and a 1 on 1 Session with Adena Rose Bright
Who is this course for?
This course is for people who are ready to study Ayurveda, and take it into their body and life and kitchen. For those who are ready for personal healing, and who have felt called to Ayurveda, but may not be ready for a practitioner program, but want a deep introduction.
This course helps people with stubborn digestive imbalances like IBS, pain, bloating, chronic constipation and more, who are looking for a natural solution. It will help those looking to deepen their self care practices, and who want to know about their own body and constitutional type. It is for those who want to learn how to change their diet, shaped by Ayurvedic understanding.
I created this course for a past version of myself - someone who felt on the precipice of change, found yoga as a compass, wanted to learn more about food and cooking for healing, and wasn't sure where to go next! This is the course I wish I had found to take alongside my first yoga teacher training.

How does the course work? Like, how can it be live and online?
Think of The Healing Diet like an online college course. Ten weeks long, 2-3 hours per week mostly on your own time and schedule.
Lectures: 1 hour per week This is the 'meat' of your course. The lectures can be streamed online or downloaded. They're pretty packed full of information, so you might want to listen to them a few times. This is where you'll get the solid Ayurvedic framework we are going to be working off of.
Guest teachers: 1 hour per week Listen to inspiring interviews with Ayurvedic practitioners and whole foods educators including Dr. Claudia Welch, Cate Stillman, Lisa Mase, Myra Lewin, Jessica Prentice, Sarajean Rudman, Larissa Hall Carlson, Allison Morse, Nadya Andreeva and more...
Online classroom: You will be provided access to our online classroom about 1 week before the course begins. Here is where all of your lectures, as well as call-in information, guest interviews, recorded live calls, and link to Facebook forum will be kept for you. It is password protected, and only available to current THD (The Healing Diet) members.
Facebook group: You will have 24/7 access to a private Facebook group open to current THD (The Healing Diet) members only. Ask questions, share photos, recipes, and results with our community.
One, 1 on 1 consultation with Adena: 30 minutes This will be scheduled after the course begins - we will schedule a distance phone or Zoom consultation. Think of this as a personal check in - get questions answered about the course, clarify your own discoveries, and have some accountability in your self study.
Handbook: You will receive a digital handbook to help guide you through the course information. There will be some helpful worksheets, as well as notes outlining the lectures, so you know what's upcoming, as well as won't have to worry about taking many notes yourself. Included are also resources, as well as some new Ayurvedic recipes to try.
What is the time commitment?
As you may have gleaned from above, the ideal time commitment is 2-3 hours per week. This includes one recorded lecture, and one interview with our guest teachers. Once you register, you will be given information about how to most efficiently carve out time to make for this program in your life.
Are there any books I need to read along with the course?
There is no required reading. You will be provided a handbook, in digital format, along with the course which includes some worksheets. Within the lessons, sometimes there are external articles suggested, but links will be provided.

It's an important way to strengthen our community.
