What folks are saying...
Jai Dev, This has been the most important study of of myself as I relate to the food I am ingesting. Your teaching method has really helped me to understand more than I ever thought possible! This class is great! Bless you and all that you are sharing with all of us! I look forward to more in the future. Oh my gosh! I wish I'd paid attention to my body sooner! It's been speaking to me all along and I didn't understand what it was trying to say! This class is opening the doors to enlightenment. Thanks, Karen
It is all so beautiful, the poetry of it is healing in its own right and you are a lumionous teacher, Jai Dev, thank you for the blessing that you are.

Very happy to be hearing the wisdom of the ancients through you and this class. I am entering Naturopathy school next year, and I plan on using true holistic medicine - ayurveda! So thank you for this class. Very deep knowledge. I learned more in an hour 20 min than in some day long seminars. Great job! Looking forward to learning more. Thanks again. Brenda
I am now half way thru Ayurveda school and finding that Jai Dev's teachings speak clearer to me than anything I am studying. Any chance to pay for that download now? I find that after each revisit of one of his dharma lectures I come to embody the material more and more. Otherwise I am staring at copious notes in a binder without a poet to interpret their meanings.
Incredible information that's opened a very large door of insight and enthusiasm for ayurveda. -Shane
Wow...First; The ayurveda course is so multi-layered, I can imagine listening repeatedly for months....very rich and enlightening.
Dear Jai Dev,
Just 12 minutes into listening to the replay of last night's class and I am so pleased to be hearing these words. Your class has been and continues to be amazing!
This series is like a bud opening.
Petal by petal revelaing itself in harmony with the uniqueness of the bud within both a physical and unviersal context.
Jai Dev, last night, you presented a huge, complex amount of material with verbal clarity and insight as well as energetically.
You make the information come alive.
Jai dev, Thank you for presenting this in a way that feels very common sense and more comprehensible than it has before. I continually nod my head as it all falls into place.
Thank you Jai Dev. Please write a book!! I appreciate your presenting this complex, detailed information and your insights in clear and inspiring language.
Dear Jai Dev,
Your course is so helpful and right on point for me at this time in life.
Hello Jai Dev, I have been following your teleseminars on ayurveda and it is amazing!! You are an incredible, dynamic teacher!! Thank you for sharing!
I was truly moved by the depth of the insight. I've never before came across any source on Ayurveda which would deal with the topic in such a
universal and deeply spiritual way. Looking forward to the next classes!
Thank you for a very deep and important class. I felt that it was more like putting things together, or getting a deeper insight, than just
getting some new knowledge.
Greetings Jai Dev -- the class was wonderful. It really gave me a whole new framework within which to view and implement ayurveda. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the classes.
What a wonderful introduction to Ayurveda you have shared with us!
You have answered so many questions about this system for me already, and your contextual approach to the subject is immediately empowering. Immediate also, is the profound nourishment of your Dharmic Wisdom.
I am grateful for the transfer of vision that I received from you today, and look forward to greater vistas and practical applications to live from and practice in the time to come.What a Blessing to begin the study of Ayurveda this way!
Thank you, Jai Dev, for giving yourself to your Teaching and for then giving it to the world!
Hi Jai Dev,
First of all, I want to THANK YOU for such an "awesome" seminar you gave on ayurveda!!! It really got me going again with my appreciation for ayurveda and drove some things deeper into my brain. I got so much out of it and look forward to a follow-up :) The pace in which you taught was just perfect, you kept us interested for the entire hour and a half and looking forward to the next weeks' class...well done!!!
Hi, Jai Dev.
I wanted to thank you so much for the Ayurvedic teleseminar. It was really informational and inspirational.
I have read on and written about Ayurvedic subjects, yet there was something about the way that you taught the class that really resonated with me. Your teachings really helped me to “get it” in a different way—in a more holistic context--and I greatly thank you for that.
Many blessings to you,
This has been a wonderful series and I'm hoping to hear about what's next with you.
My over all sense is you have given me logical tools to work with--for myself and my family. And, that's about as powerful a gift as anyone can give. And, I'm pretty sure it's just a beginning. I really am looking forward to you expanding this however you see fit.
May all the season's elementals smile upon you and yours,
Thank you! I will enjoy listening to the downloads, and look forward to learning more. You are a wonderful teacher, clear, warm, light~full. Blessings
Thank you, I can't wait to get one of the cookbooks you've suggested. I appreciate your ability to break down these complex concepts into bite size pieces. Blessings.
This is invaluable information and presented in a very engaging and clear way. Thank you again.
Thank you so much for sharing your insights with us. This is incredibly valuable. Namaste.
I just wanted to check in with you and let you know I listen to the audio download of each class later in the week. I am now totally addicted (not in a Vata way...I hope) to the teachings and am so grateful to you for doing this class. I attempted to learn a little about Ayurveda in the past but didn't have a feel for it. Now I think I can really sink my teeth in a bit more.
You are such a gifted teacher, thank you so much.
Just want to let you know how much I am enjoying your Ayurvedic Seminar. It is so nice to be able to listen to it when ever I want to and as many times as I want to. Many blessing to you for making time to help us learn more about Ayurveda. Love Ayurveda very much and love the beautiful spirit you are teaching it with. Thank you so much.
Love, Light and Harmony,
I've really been enjoying it. Having the download available has been wonderful too. I try to listen to each class at least two more times during the week. And found over the weekend when I re listened to the first one (which makes at least 4 listenings for me) that I could 'hear' more than my earlier listenings.
Thank you soooo much!! Your style is very clear and I really appreciate the insight you bring to this subject. Thank you so much ! The class was so informative and interesting! You are a great teacher, and I look forward to the series you are conducting!
I particularly liked the ease with which Jai Dev taught the course. It is easily discernible that he knows the material well and you can teach it in a way to make even the novice understand. I also appreciated that the course focused on theory more than practicum. I look forward to incorporating many of the principles learned throughout the course into my daily practice.
I have been a student and practitioner of Ayurveda for 5 years and I find everyday there is another discovery in this ever evolving science of the Vedas. Ayurveda is rich in the wisdom of self-healing and Jai Dev's knowledge of Ayurveda comes with a teaching style that brings clarity to this very complex science of life.
What I loved most was the richness of your presentation, giving us the 'poetic' depth. That really resonates with me and gets me inspired and enthusiastic. Breaking it down over 8 weeks was a good pace. I started learning about Ayurveda about a year ago and after this course, I feel like I've absorbed a lot more, a lot more has sunk in. Now I need to keep myself motivated and tip the momentum to the right direction. Thanks for a great course.
Jai Dev was amazingly clear, concise and profound all at the same time in his presentation of the material. His voice was most professional and illuminating! After being a practicing acupuncturist for 12 years, this course really helped take my understanding of Asian medicine to a new level. This course inspired me to continue on and sign up for the Aromatherapy (Ayurvedic) course held this September in Nevada City.Margaret Campbell
I love the practical way it is taught. The real life applications were very helpful.
"This course was very well organized. The first Ayurveda course was very inspired.Appreciate the opportunity to study this info over and over. I live in a conservative area and the internet gives me the chance to stay connected to the work I love.I have been a student of Ayurveda since 1989. All classes go deeper in integration. As a polarity practitioner it is great to have the Ayurvedic knowledge support what I already know about the elements internally and externally as a bodyworker. Deepest Gratitude to Jai Dev.
I enjoyed the ease of listening on my own time. I enjoy the easy to understand and relate to metaphors used. I fully agree this is information we should all be learning in our early years. Though much of it seems common sense, it is not common awareness and I am grateful to have at my fingertips a cohesive explanation to refer to again and again.
I like the fact that the information was presented in a way that was logical and gradually built on what was provided from each previous week(s). This information was very complex for me as a newbie and I appreciated that I could follow along without getting lost. The most important thing I took out of this course is that just eating ‚Äúright‚Äù and exercising is not what is going to bring me good health and happiness. The idea that digestion was not just about the food I eat was very enlightening. The 3 season‚Äôs food lists have become my best friends. I noticed an immediate positive response in how I was operating in the world just by consuming foods that are in season and not consuming foods that aggravate my individual prakriti. This course has profoundly impacted my life because I have instituted most of the suggestions presented in the course; and how I feel, what I am able to more easily accomplish, and how others respond to me have all been positive and better overall. Ayurveda has become part of my daily living practice. I see it now as a life enhancing and spiritual lifestyle that I hope becomes a mainstay in the 21st western world.
"I believe the course was presented in a very logical order making it very easy to understand. The questions and answer sessions were very valuable. I was fascinated by the talk on herbs but know it was because of the foundation you built going into that module. I found the part about the consciousness, subconsciousness and clearing out the junk was fascinating. Really helped me understand why meditation is so valuable. At the core of our being there is a knowing that we are a part of nature. You only deepened my connection with that core and helped awaken a deeper awareness and understanding.
I think the thing I take away most is that through my new found understanding I can make changes in the way I live my life step by step. I just don't feel so overwhelmed which is where I was before the course started. I always felt like there are so many changes I need to make to follow an ayurvedic was of life, but you said over and over it is very simple, yet also complex."
It gave me an integrated overview of Ayurveda in 8 weeks! The most important truth I got was the importance of Meditation in daily life and how it's connected to the principal teachings of Ayurveda. It has inspired me to continue on with my Ayurvedic studies and my Meditation practice.
I liked the structure of the course, how each module addressed a specific topic but relates to the whole. It is easy to go back and listen to each of the modules on their own. I like the emphasis of gradual integration of these ideas into a lifestyle. This approach makes it more appealing and less stressful because I can pick and choose what works for me right now and what I will actually do on a regular basis. I was overwhelmed at first with all of the terms but they are slowly sinking in. The study of Ayurveda is helping me find balance especially because of Jai Dev's emphasis on not being too rigid about it all. I am actually easier on myself about my health while consistently making small improvements in diet and lifestyle. Also I appreciate the nice handouts. It really helped to look at them while listening to the class.
I couldn't get enough of this course. This is my introduction to Ayurveda and it was amazing. I loved everything about this course.
I loved how useful the information is. Sharing personal experiences & making material applicable to real life makes Jai Dev an excellent teacher. I started using the info on eating for the seasons right away. I look forward to deepening my understanding of herbs and using them in my life. The course has ignited a fire of knowledge within me! I think this will be the next topic for me to study. Thank you for a fabulous introduction to Ayurveda.
Jai Dev is a great teacher, he presents the material in a way that is easy to understand and absorb. It is clear that he lives Ayurveda on a daily basis, which makes the content of the class authentic as it is backed by life experience. I also really appreciate that he is not dogmatic in his approach! Nice!Most of all I learned the importance of creating a daily routine, to incorporate what is possible, while striving for the ideal. Thank you, Jai Dev!!!
I like the way, Jay put in contest all the Ayurveda concepts that I have known .Now Ayurveda make sense for me. Thanks.
Really enjoyed the beginning part of the course, the philosophy of Ayurveda. Then you followed trough beautifully with the details. Loved it!
I really enjoyed Jai Dev's delivery of the course materials. He made the sometimes difficult concepts (I am new to Ayurveda) very clear and understandable. Jai Dev's voice was a pleasure to listen to and kept me engaged and relaxed. Superb!!
"I loved everything about the course! I especially appreciated the gorgeous visuals, informative handouts, and Jai Dev's warm, conversational, and organic presentations. He clearly has deep passion for and profound understanding of his subject. Even though, regrettably, I was not able to listen to the modules live, I looked forward to them each week and have now listened to all of them. I have been studying Ayurveda on my own for about 8 years now, and have had consultations with various practitioners in my area during that time, but I feel this course really helped me to deepen my understanding of the core principles and how (and, more importantly, why) to apply them in my life. I was so inspired by this course that I have begun to search for an Ayurvedic practitioner training course and am eager to get going on that. Thank you Jai Dev!(I also loved the use of Simrit Kaur's beautiful music as the soundtrack.)"
I most liked the way that you made connections between all the elements of the course - from the structure and function to treatment and spirituality. My knowledge of Ayurveda was quite scant before the course. I have a much greater understanding of Ayurveda and also yoga as a result of listening to the course modules. Jai Dev is a natural teacher.
Living in northern Maine and being a small town yoga teacher makes it a challenge to go to big workshops. I am soooooooo grateful for this course and to you for utilizing technology in such a way. I also liked the cost of the course-I could afford it with the special discounts. I also enjoyed your teaching style-your passion came across the digital sea and your understanding of ayurveda made so much sense. The most important things I take from this course are: context is more important than content, the initial module that explains purusha and prakriti, the strong importance of a meditation practice to empty the subconscious that gets filled up and how to eat seasonally to stay in better balance. This course has only just begun to impact my life as I will be listening regularly over the coming year. My understanding of Ayurveda has increased 10 fold and has gone deeper than anything else I've done. You have provided a wonderful tool through the downloads...have I said how grateful I am for your approach and all you've shared?
I liked the modules/breakdown, right amount of information in each module. Great introductory course for someone who is new to Ayurveda. Made me want to learn more, so I have enrolled in the CA College of Ayurveda school this coming Fall! One can see that Jai Dev has a love & passion for Ayurveda/lifestyle. A great teacher! I like the fact that I can download the modules and listen to them over & over again. I take my ipod outside with me & listen to the modules while gardening!
"The best explanation ever on food. Very helpful handouts. Your love and connection to the information presented was evident. The curriculum was systematic, clear, well organized. Great idea on the Q&A modules. Each module built on the previous ones.
While I have been exposed to all the information in previous classes and books, your course allowed me to integrate it on a much deeper, more personal level. It has become 'mine', rather than some bits of info memorized. I have also realized the necessity of repeated exposure to information. One reading of an Ayurvedic book or one intro class is not enough for people to deeply grasp the essnece of these teachings."
I appreciated Jai Dev's calm manner and ordered approach to the ancient and sophisticated teachings of ayurveda. I can feel his presence, integrity and experience teaching through the information itself.
It is very easy to understand Jai Dev. He builds the material in very clear layers.
I like most the availability and being able to listen on my own time. The most important thing I took out of it was a much better understanding of Ayurveda and a feeling that I could actually do this! I had a very general idea of what Ayurveda was, but this course explained it so well and made it so easy to understand. I have tried some herbs, changed my diet, and am applying Ayurvedic principles a little at time in my life, enhancing my experience and hopefully giving me a long, happy, healthy life.
As a Clinical Ayurvedic Practitioner, it was wonderful to hear the fundamentals explained again, breath of fresh air, Thank you
"The pace and manner of presentation was excellent, I like being able to listen (visuals are a distraction for me with this kind of material). The most important thing I took from this course is.... understanding energetics! I've been reading about vitalist herbalism (western tradition), TCM herbs, ayurveda... but none explained the energetics - so now I get it! I now have a key of understanding I can apply in my life and in my studies.Your course has inspired me to learn about the history and philosophy of ayurveda. I'm currently looking into doing a Masters of Theological Studies, specifically looking at ethics and healing traditions in different cultural and religious traditions. I want to teach ethics and moral development to high school students once I finish, I'd love to incorporate the foundations of ayurveda. Teenagers are so often SO badly directed (as I once was), this is a wonderful way to connect them to their hearts.Thank you for your generosity and kindness and care, it infuses the quality of your voice and your work. Deep salaams."
I liked that the emphasis was on increasing vitality and applying the principles to today's way of life with ease & practicality. I learned that this, Ayurveda, is an outline or a reference tool to use as a compass making day to day choices. Becoming more aware of the impact of little changes makes such a difference in the long run. I also like that I can listen over & over. The format is great.
I thought Jai Dev was an excellent instructor. I appreciated the breakdown of concepts, the 'user friendly' language, and the overall depth of information. I am a novice when it comes to Ayurveda, however I felt like this course gave me a much better understanding.
The depth of which Jai Dev taught. After many years of delving in and out of Ayurvedic principles I now have a very clear sense of its philosophy and appliction which I have begun to use daily for myself and with my clients and family. As he had mentioned,the correspondence with the use of Chinese herbs and other herbs also gives me a manner to use these principles in every aspect of life and practice. I am very grateful.
I was very inspired by the class. jai dev is an excellent teacher. in the past i had studied chinese medicine... i found the the concepts of ayurveda increased my understanding of chinese food medicine... i loved the way jai dev showed us many ways that we could improve our life styles that were also fun !
