Saturday 10 June 7 pm - The Nature of the Mind   

John Vorstermans looks at Ayurveda, an ancient India health and well-being practice.

The mind is very good at grabbing our attention in such a way that we have forgotten our true nature. It is said that to know oneself we have to learn to be aware of our thoughts without allowing them to distract us.  There are many ways to still the mind, through meditation, mindfulness practice, yoga and so on.  In this presentation we will look at some of the suggestions given us by Ayurveda, an ancient India health and well-being practice handed down from the ancient Vedas as still practised today.

 John Vorstermans has a diploma in Ayurveda healing and herbology and for the last 40 years has studied many aspects of Theosophy – the ageless wisdom.  Through their practical application the real learning takes place and being able to share this with others so they might be inspired to do the same is one of his goals.
