The Origins of Wise Earth Ayurveda
Wise Earth Ayurveda is the oldest known holistic life ways and medicine paradigm in the world. Wise Earth School is the first and only school to have restored the beneficent principles and practices that are deeply rooted in nature’s intelligence. These principles provide us the methodology for the integration of body, mind and spirit. Wise Earth School of Ayurveda belongs to the lineage Order of Veda Vyasa, a Rishi/sage of the greater Vedas. This unique education is non-clinical and non-dualistic in nature, unlike the modern models of Ayurveda with approaches that are largely clinical and prescriptive. An Education is Wise Earth Ayurveda teaches us to mine our own extraordinary resource of inner medicine by living everyday in sadhana, preserving inner harmony and world peace. Wise Earth School is one of the only known schools in the world that is recognized for restoring the sadhana tradition of Ayurveda (based in the Atharva Veda), a tradition that has been out of practice since the beginning of India’s medieval age (10th century, A.D.).
The Unique Programs of Wise Earth Ayurveda
Wise Earth Ayurveda presents these restored, long-lost practices of Ayurveda through carefully developed training programs. The ancient and timeless practice of Food, Breath, and Sound; Ayurvedic Health Care for Women; and the Pancha Karma Sadhanas are a few of the training programs offered. Amongst these programs the Trainee will learn Lunar Shakti practices such as Uttara Vasti for women’s wellness and Bhumi Vidya, the Earth Therapies, which had been defunct in Ayurveda for more than 300 years. For example, Bhu Sveda , a therapy performed on the daubed surface of the earth or in pits dug into the earth, is among the many healing arts that have been unearthed and restored to new life by Maya Tiwari.

Path of the Practitioner
The primary intent of the Wise Earth Ayurveda Training is to teach, nurture and guide practitioners of all backgrounds to implement the unique Inner Medicine Healing methodology of Wise Earth Ayurveda into everyday living. Moreover, practitioners are encouraged to undertake this work to instruct, nurture, and foster the growth of inner harmony, wholeness and excellent health as staples within their community.
As we begin to change our attitude and embrace Mother Earth, we are inevitably drawn closer to the pure nature of ahimsa- loving respect for ourselves and for each other. In this way, the work of accepting the state of brokenness as a necessary function of healing into wholeness ripples outward, influencing the state of peacefulness and harmony throughout the earth. These teachings make Ayurveda an affordable means of physical, mental and spiritual health care. Wise Earth Ayurveda programs are designed for those who have a strong desire to reclaim personal awareness and global consciousness and to help others achieve abundant health. Graduates of the Wise Earth Ayurveda comprise a wide variety of health instructors/practitioners, yoga teachers, artists, nutritionists, cooks, medical doctors, therapists, nurses, social advocates and so on. Wise Earth Ayurveda offers courses from Beginners to Advanced for the discerning instructor, practitioner and community advocate.
