A beloved, well-read copy of the core textbook for first year students at CCA. Dr. Marc Halpern wrote this text over 20 years ago, drawing the profound knowledge that it contains from the ancient, classical Ayurvedic texts. And now, the first major rewrite is about to be released! Dr. Halpern has been working hard to deepen and expand the teachings that this book provides. The new edition will be utilized in our classrooms beginning January 1, 2016.
