“The N.H.S. waiting list will grow to five million people by 2021… equivalent to one in 10 of us, the highest number ever,”
Simon Stevens, Chief Executive of the NHS
With public perception of a crisis in our healthcare system, it is now becoming accepted that the future of medicine lies in our nutrition and lifestyle. What could better help us understand how to manage our health than the original source of knowledge and the most enduring and sophisticated system of healing?
Ayurveda is the ancient and timeless, science of life and has been experientially proven over many centuries to help us achieve an optimum state of health and well being.
What you will learn: 
  • Recognise the person (patient)

Identify their constitutional (genomic) make up (Prakruti); get to know each person’s (including your own) risk factors for disease and their particular nutrition and lifestyle needs to achieve/maintain health

  • Tune into the pulse

Pulse rate information as predictor of disease  

  • Gut instinct

The digestive system is the key to all diseases. Learn about the key role of “agni” aka digestive fire on digestion and assimilation of food and, how you can balance it with diet and lifestyle. 

  • Connection with the patient

Learn how to get to the root of the issue quickly so that the patient leaves feeling understood and re-assured with new tools for their health 

  • Connection with the original intention
  • What is the intention with which you set out to become a healthcare professional? Learn the tools that actually reconnect you with that orignial intention to relieve suffering
  • Connection with intuitive practice

When faced with the problem of what you should do with a patient, learn how to trust your intuition as a healthcare professional. 

  • Connect with universal energy

How to connect with the source of our energy through practices such as mindfulness and meditation 

In Ayurveda we can recognise the constitution of the person through the particularities of their physiological functioning. This is a sophisticated predictor of future disease as well as a reliable gauge of many physiological and mental imbalances, such as inflammation, infection, allergens, immunity, digestive functioning, mental capacities, behavioural aspects, sustainable immunity, hidden / stagnant disease and much more.
 
Through this knowledge we can discover the causes and the pathogenesis of disease and provide an entirely natural, effective approach using diet, lifestyle, treatment therapies and the harnessing of universal energy.

“Conscious Living – Conscious Dying”

concious Living:dying-poster-PR4 copy

Health Being Institute and the Sacred Care Project, in association with the College of Medicine are presenting a workshop to investigate the importance of how we live and prepare ourselves today for our time of dying.

When: 15:00 on Saturday 7 April 2018

Where: Woolman Room, 8-9 Hop Gardens, London.  WC2N 4EH

Cost: £10 per person

We all need to be thinking about our life/death decisions and choices, sooner rather than later, and how we might take responsibility to care for ourselves and our loved ones when the time comes that we/they are dying. By starting the conversation about death and accepting our spiritual nature, we become part of a community of people who inspire each other to live consciously and prepare for our time of dying.

Presenters:

Dr Eleni Tsiompanou is a Palliative Care Consultant physician whose experience has taken her from the clinic and laboratory to creating the Health Being Institute. She feels that through a gentle awakening to the reality of our mortality we can transform our suffering, fears & isolation and access the miracle in our daily lives.

Bridget Betzer has been a nurse and longtime caregiver. She began the Sacred Care Project in 2015 in response to the fear and unpreparedness she witnessed many times when caring for the dying and their families. She feels that with the right guidance and support we can be part of this very natural holistic process in a helpful, healing way, a sacred way.  

Jane Hastings worked as a nurse in intensive care and palliative care for more than three decades. Now that she has retired, she is passionate about engaging with people to help demystify death and support them to understand the process of dying.
