Manasa means 'Mind' and Ayurveda means the 'Science of Life'. It is a 5,000 year-old system for health and healing with origins in South Asia.
One-in-four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. We offer the first specialist Ayurvedic service for mental health in the UK.
The Manasa Ayurveda Holistic Wellbeing Course is a Holistic ‘Second-Generation Mindfulness-Based Intervention’ (SG-MBI). It applies the theory and practice of Buddhist Āyurvedic Counselling and Psychiatry (BĀCP).
This 8-week course includes an initial online consultation followed with a personal face-to-face consultation on the first session, practical learning of traditional Ayurvedic methods for physical self-care, behaviour and situation change advice (e.g. through diet and lifestyle counselling), and methods for developing concentration and insight (through a traditional personally tailored approach to mindfulness and meditation training).
