Special Lectures

VA SHIVA SYSTEMS HEALTH™, a three-part online course, provides the foundations of integrative medicine to medical doctors and complementary medical practitioners that seek scientific principles and evidence-based research.

It was invigorating to hear, see, and read some of core Ayurvedic principles integrated with systems of biomedical medicine.This is such terrific work. This is excellent! These sessions are cross-disciplinary and encourage perspectives from social, historical, cultural, clinical, and basic sciences. Shiva’s ability to simplify powerful concepts and make it understandable has really allowed me to educate my students on the scientific basis of Yoga that I knew intuitively.
