Anxiety and Depression in Ayurveda

For those of you that missed it, here’s a recording of my recent free lecture on anxiety and depression, from April 1 2021. First given at the AHG Symposium in 2018, this lecture provides a practical review of yuktivyapāśraya cikitsā (i.e. rational therapy), sattvāvajayacikitsā (i.e. behavioural therapy), and daivavyapāśraya cikitsā (spiritual therapy). This lecture will also incorporate the use of entheogenic and psychedelic therapies, which I have been using in my practice for a decade.
