Who is this course for?
This course is for people who are ready to invest time and energy into themselves, who are ready for personal healing, and who have felt called to Ayurveda. When you heard about Ayurveda and went 'ah hah!' it was no mistake.
This course helps people with stubborn digestive imbalances like IBS, pain, bloating, chronic constipation and more, who are looking for a natural solution.
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.
Past members report:
- I have a better routine.
- I have better digestion.
- I manage stress better.
- My yoga and meditation practice has improved.
- I know how to eat with the seasons.
- I make better food choices.
- I know more about eating for my body type.
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, about 3 hours per week (2 on your own time, one live each Saturday morning through webinar.)
Live group calls: 1 hour per week There is a live call every week to keep you on track and accountable for your progress within the course. The live component is still done at a distance - through conference calls with Adena and the whole group.
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.
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.
Teach Ayurveda: We learn best when we teach. The 9th and 10th live calls will be led by student presentations. This could be anything from a 5 minute share on your ah hah moment, to a blog post you've formulated about a food or herb you've wanted to research, to a report on a live Ayurvedic workshop you held at work or your local natural foods store.
What is the time commitment?
As you may have gleaned from above, the ideal time commitment is 3 hours per week. This includes one live conference call, 1 recorded lecture, and 1 recorded supplemental guest interview. Once you register, you will be given information about how to most efficiently carve out time to make for this program in your life.
When do we meet live?
The next session will begin on SEPTEMBER 30, 2017. We meet on Saturdays at 10 a.m. ET by phone. All times are Eastern Time: Saturday mornings beginning September 30, 2017 *Subject to change with much advance notice to students
What if I need to miss one of live calls?
All of the live calls for your group will be recorded, and put in your online classroom for download.
