The Vagus Nerve
Led by Dr. Victor Briere & Gurubhai


May 14th

1:30 - 4:00 pm

Ayurveda offers an integrative lifestyle-based approach that sees optimal health as the synergy of well-harmonized relationship between body, mind, spirit and environment. In recent years, modern science has developed an understanding of the Vagus Nerve, a physical system that underlies trauma, stress, and chronic disease. We will explore and experience how this body of knowledge beautifully reinforces the effectiveness and relevance of Ayurvedic healing practices.
