5th edition: Artha
While contemporary society comes with great opportunities for raising our children well, it can also feel like it is getting harder for modern moms to live a balanced lifestyle ourselves. How can we create the best circumstances for our children, while also taking the time we need for ourselves? In this series of workshops we explore how Ayurveda can support motherhood by bringing back the balance in our ever demanding lives.
In each workshop we will introduce or recap the basic concept of the four aims of life and will take you along on a creative journey to experience the ideas first hand. Also expect each workshop to have a special guest. These inspiring mothers will be announced through our instagram and via the website of The White Door Studio.
About this series: The Four aims of life
We approach Ayurveda by explaining it’s four aims of life from a modern point of view so you can apply this ancient knowledge in your life directly. In this series of 4 consecutive workshops we explain Ayurveda’s core philosophy from a mother’s point of view. If time doesn’t allow you to join us on this journey, no worries: each workshop singles out one of the four aims but is designed to stand on its own.
1. Dharma: Your passion or purpose. What gives you meaning in this life? What do you find interesting? How do you walk your path? Together we’ll explore how you can follow your own curiosity.
2. Artha: Value or material comfort. We need resources to make our life purpose manifest. Means to pay your bills and to do what you want to do. Expect a toolkit to figure out which activity or profession can support your life goal.
3. Kama: Pleasure and desire. We deserve to enjoy good food, relaxation, vacation, nice clothes, etc. However, we have to be mindful it doesn’t take us into possession. Ayurveda shows us how to bring in a sense of delight in your life and what it means to be present with all our senses.
4. Moksha: the ultimate goal, spiritual liberation. The goal in which we realize that there is more than just a passion, property and desires. This is the highest form of self-healing it doesn’t mean it’s out of reach for most of us. We will explore how small things matter and see it’s the small steps that lead to big breakthroughs.
Workshop 5: Artha
In the fifth workshop you will learn more about adding value to your life and taking the first steps towards embracing your work with love.
Therefore we have invited inspiring mother and writer Lois Kruidenier to talk about her first book ‘Nieuw leven’, and how she came to write and publish this book in which she needed to learn how to value herself and her book. Something that wasn’t always easy for her.
It will be an interactive dialogue in which we will talk about:
Making a living with work you love
Creating value for yourself and others
Taking the first steps in creating your own business
Writing from your heart
How to grow in the most authentic way
During this fifth edition on Friday 20 November (14-16) you will meet like-minded mothers while getting a new perspective on life. Tea and snacks are included.
