Recently, Ayurveda medicine, which in Japan is easily passed over as a kind of beauty treatment or cosmetology or as some form of spiritual medical treatment, has now evolved into a treatment that is even recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO). It is a way of thinking about one's everyday lifestyle as a form of medical treatment, and can even be called an ancient form of biohacking, as it "hacks" one's body and one's environment. Knowing about the inner workings of one's own body, creating the things that the body needs from everyday materials based on ancient chemical knowledge, and interactions with othersーall these can be a form of medical treatment. How about learning more about this Indian medical treatment?
This workshop consists of three courses, in which we will touch on the way that Ayurveda sees living as well as physical matter, hear lectures about the cultural aspects of Indian medical treatment, and learn about creating medicines, how to feel and recognize the effects of medicine, and how anything can become a form of medical treatment.
We welcome the participation of anyone interested in Indian medical treatment, the correct use of Ayurveda, or DIY bio.
