Todd Caldecott, RH (AHG)
Price: $40.00

THESE WEBINARS WERE RECORDED IN OCTOBER 2016.

This lecture is a two part series that explores this ancient Himalayan tradition, the life and work of Vaidya Mana Bajra Bajracarya, and the integration of this knowledge in modern clinical practice. Part one of this lecture reviews the origins of the Newari Ayurveda tradition and its ancient connection to Nalanda University in India, and its embodiment in the life and work of the late Vaidya Mana Bajra Bajracarya. Part two of this lecture is a review of some of the important diseases described in Ayurveda and their treatment using the principles and practices employed by the Bajracharya tradition, including a discussion and dissection of some of the more important formulas, and their application within a Western clinical context.

According to tradition Ayurveda originated in the Himalayas thousands of years ago. The importance of this region, with respect to its climactic, geographic and biological diversity, is clearly evident in Ayurveda, with many species indigenous to the Himalayas playing a key role in its materia medica. Among the hundreds of different ethnic groups that live in the Himalayas are the indigenous peoples of the Kathmandu Valley called the Newar, whose ancestors have inhabited this region since before recorded history. The Newar people have been an active trading and mercantile community for millennia, acting as the interface between the rest of India and Tibet, facilitating the trade commodities such as rock salt, gold, silver, deer musk, and herbal medicines. Among their spiritual traditions is the practice of Vajrayana Buddhism, one of the three primary streams of Buddhism, which at one time was practiced extensively across India before its extirpation in the 13th century. Inheriting this tradition before it died out in India, along with its attendant medical practices and techniques, the Newar people maintain the only living example of Indian Buddhism still in existence, and an authentic unbroken lineage of Ayurveda, exemplified by the life of Newar physician, Vaidya Mana Bajra Bajracarya.

Todd Caldecott has been in practice as a medical herbalist and practitioner of Āyurveda for two decades. He has had a broad array of clinical experiences in diverse locations, including North America, SE Asia, and the Caribbean, working with a variety of conditions, including autoimmune disease and metabolic disorders. He is a registered professional member with both the AHG and NAMA, and serves as Director of the Dogwood School of Botanical Medicine. He is author of the books Ayurveda: The Divine Science of Life and Food As Medicine, co-editor of Ayurveda In Nepal, and in 2014, was honored at Bastyr University as the Visiting Mitchell Scholar. In February of 2017, Todd will be taking a select group of students to study the Bajracharya tradition in Kathmandu.
