Current Peer Support Groups and Workshops Going On at WCRC

Posted Jun 19 2009 10:13pm
The Women’s Cancer Resource Center has some workshops and support groups in which you may be interested:

The next workshop coming up is “Introduction to Ayurveda”:
Wed. Sept. 10, 6:30 - 8:00 PM
With Victoria Alara, graduate of Ayurveda Institute of America

Come learn about an ancient science for living well that promotes wholeness in body, mind, soul and spirit. With roots in India , Tibet and other Himalayan cultures, Ayurveda, "the study of living," is fast-becoming recognized all over the world as a deep resource for people interested in preventive medicine and holistic healthcare. In this introductory workshop we will touch briefly upon some of the basic concepts used in Ayurvedic methods of healing, and highlight some features distinguishing it among the healing modalities available today.
