Ayurveda and the Transition From This Life to the Next

Nothing is more sacred than Life and Death. During this program, Dr. Marc Halpern (Dr. Siva) and Dr. Andrea Deerheart will explore how to live a full and healthy life while reconciling the reality of our Death.

During this program, Dr. Halpern and Dr. Deerheart will utilize the teachings of Ayurveda along with philosophy, psychology, and mythology to maximize our full potential while we walk this earth and prepare for a graceful transition at the end of life.
