Two courses held last winter in Europe for training doctors and technicians in Maharishi's Vedic Approach to Health will help to make Panchakarma (purification and rejuvenation therapy), one of the main approaches of Maharishi Ayur-Veda* health care, more widely available around the globe.
The courses were held near Maharishi European Research University (MERU) in the Netherlands. Participants were honoured to have as their course leader Ashtavaidya Mooss, a renowned senior expert in Ayur-Veda from India, who worked closely with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in his restoration of the complete knowledge of Ayur-Veda, developing special programmes for chronic disorders.
One course was the first basic course of training in Panchakarma for health professionals to be offered in 20 years. Participants came from nine countries. Newly trained experts will set up facilities in several European and South American countries where Panchakarma so far has not been available. Some who completed the course will work in existing Panchakarma clinics in their countries. Others will open their own Maharishi Ayur-Veda Health Centres.
The second course, with 27 participants from around the world, brought out advanced knowledge for very experienced Maharishi Ayur-Veda physicians who have been offering Panchakarma treatments in leading health clinics in their countries. One popular highlight of the course was Ashtavaidya Mooss bringing participants up to date by providing additional knowledge of specific procedures that expanded the repertoire of treatments.
Participants will receive follow-up support, including webinars and other materials. (read more)
