Yoga and Ayurveda are complementary and are both concerned with transformation. We have absorbed these teachings in largely individualised cultures. This session will go back to the origins of these traditions to consider appropriation and appreciation. We shall explore what transformation means today and how we might harness the basic tenets of these teachings such as their core principles to shape a sustainable world. The session will consider examples of how these teachings are being applied to bring about healing and will ask how they can at the same time, help us advance consciousness.
