Two recently completed European courses to train doctors and technicians in Maharishi's Vedic Approach to Health will help to make Panchakarma (purification and rejuvenation therapy), one of the main approaches of Maharishi Ayur-Veda* health care, more widely available around the globe.
The courses were held near Maharishi European Research University (MERU) in the Netherlands. Participants were honoured to have as their course leader Ashtavaidya Mooss, a renowned senior expert in Ayurveda from India, who worked closely with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in his restoration of the complete knowledge of Ayurveda, developing special programmes for chronic disorders.
One course was the first basic course of training in Panchakarma for health professionals to be offered in 20 years. Participants came from nine countries. Newly trained experts will set up facilities in several European and South American countries where Panchakarma so far has not been available. Some who completed the course will work in existing Panchakarma clinics in their countries. Others will open their own Maharishi Ayur-Veda Health Centres.
The second course, with 27 participants from around the world, brought out advanced knowledge for very experienced Maharishi Ayur-Veda physicians who have been offering Panchakarma treatments in leading health clinics in their countries. One popular highlight of the course was Ashtavaidya Mooss bringing participants up to date by providing additional knowledge of specific procedures that expanded the repertoire of treatments.
Participants will continue to receive follow-up support, including webinars and other materials.
International Maharishi Ayurveda Foundation established
The newly created International Maharishi Ayurveda Foundation is a global organization representing all Maharishi Ayur-Veda trained health professionals worldwide. Its role is to coordinate all aspects and therapies of Ayurveda, as well as to maintain them on their highest level. It will serve as a platform connecting and supporting Maharishi Ayur-Veda health professionals, creating a strong, united voice of consciousness-based Ayurveda in the world.
Doctors around the world who participate will receive a regular newsletter detailing research studies, product information, course updates, and other information. Continuing medical education will include ongoing updates of clinical practices.
The foundation will establish an accreditation board for all Maharishi Ayur-Veda courses and health centres, to ensure the highest standards worldwide; as well as a standardized structure for training courses.
Other activities will include organizing and conducting an annual international Maharishi Ayur-Veda congress, organizing other alternative/integrative medical conferences and exhibitions, establishing a reliable interface for communication with government institutions, and promoting, conducting, and publicizing new research in the field of Ayurveda.
An overall goal of the foundation is to help make Ayur-Veda an integral part of the health care system.
