Interactive Workshops

Printer-friendly version

It is the common experience of students, junior teachers and young practitioner of Ayurveda  , who in the beginning of their professional career come across certain points of topics/subjects in texts, which require explanation, interpretation and scientific understanding. In some of the colleges, where the faculty is deficient of senior and experienced teachers , the students pass out without much understanding on the concepts of Ayurveda and their practical utility.

It is frequently raised and argued by the students that some of the topics of Ayurveda that could not be explained in terms of present understanding may be deleted from the syllabus, as these are not relevant in the contemporary sense .

But before entering into such conclusion, it is necessary that an interactive opportunity in the form of an open session may take place between students ,  eminent scholars and experienced Vaidyas, where the such points of doubt may be discussed to an agreement. It is observed that the routine workshops of specific subject/topic limit the discussion to that topic and many times fail to clarify the doubts of students for lack of time. In the fields of learning involving study of ancient texts and applying them in day-to-day practice in order to promote health care of the people, there is every possibility of queries in the professionals regarding the applicability of ancient thoughts in the present day understanding.

In order to achieve the objective of imparting clarity in ayurveda education and practice RAV organizes an Interactive workshop on some special topic of concern. The outcome of discussion is also published in the form of a book which remains available for every interested reader even after the completion of the workshop.

So far RAV has conducted 25 Interactive Workshops on various topics as listed below:
