course background & summary
The Manasa Ayurveda wellbeing course is a holistic second-generation mindfulness-based intervention. It applies the theory and practice of Buddhist Ayurvedic Counselling and Psychiatry (BACP) which has been developed in Sri Lanka over the past decade and recognised by the World Health Organisation.
This course includes traditional Ayurvedic physical therapies, behaviour and situation change (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).
