Tuesday, October 22 from 6-8pm



We believe that natural health is no longer a luxury, but the birthright of all of us on planet Earth.

At Berdhanya’s Teaching Centre, our mission is to educate individuals interested in using the power of the Earth’s wisdom to support healthy, vibrant natural living.

We use a variety of tools to guide your awareness toward a lifestyle that respects and supports your true nature, including Ayurveda, yoga, meditation, shamanism and mystic teachings explored through a variety of experiential courses, training and retreats. 



This month, we are inviting you to learn more about Ayurveda at our upcoming Open House.

In this evening, you are invited to explore this ancient philosophy with us, and to allow its many practical uses to surprise you, ground you, inspire you, and heal you. This 5,000+ year old Indian science is now providing answers to many modern diseases, including those related to stress and the mind. We are all acutely aware of the need to move toward simple, practical and affordable ways of living in our times. 

Please join us as our guest for this fun and educational evening. You are welcome to bring your friends and family with you to learn, interact and experience Ayurveda.
