6–Day Wisdom Within program
This six-day program, which incorporates three days of silence, is designed to deepen the experience of Panchakarma for guests who have previously attended our six or ten day Perfect Health program. Highlights of the week include experiential lectures, a group excursion to Torrey Pines, evening satsangs (supportive group gathering involving Sanskrit chanting), and experiences that guide guests within so that they can hear the wisdom of their inner voice.
Guests will enjoy a deeper exploration of Ayurveda and the connection between physical experiences and spirituality in addition to daily Ayurvedic spa treatments, Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga classes and group meditations. Participants will develop their own self-trust and inner voice, which will naturally enhance intuition and creativity. This experience enhances balance by deeply attuning participants to their body’s wisdom for in depth healing.
Who is suited for this course:
- Prerequisite: Guests must have previously attended a Perfect Health 6- or 10-day program, or our Balancing the Body course.
- Experienced meditators who are interested in exploring the benefits of silence (3 days) combined with Panchakarma.
