About the event
In January's Chai with CAAM we are honored to have K.P. Khalsa discussing "How to Use Western Herbs in Your Ayurvedic Practice."
Western herbs can be an integral part of your Ayurvedic protocols when working with a client and are often more readily available than Indian herbs.
There are so many herbs from India that we learn in our training. Recognizing the importance of their rasa, virya, and vipaka is essential to our understanding of their effectiveness for our clients. In addition, the Charaka Samhita emphasizes that it is best to use herbs that are abundantly available. Although western herbs are plentiful, we are often unsure about how to use them to best serve our clients. How can we use local plants in an Ayurvedic way? K.P. Khalsa will answer this question and more as he discusses this important topic.Meet K.P. Khalsa
