Using Vedic Astrology and the principles of Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India, Ryan Kurczak of Asheville Vedic Astrology, astrologer, author, and teacher, co-hosted this show with me, Karen White, of Divine Time Astrology.
This week, the topic was about two common mental health issues, Depression and Anxiety. We used the charts of a father who suffered from depression and his two adult children who also suffer from depression, showing how depression can often run in families. Plus, we discussed the chart of a woman who suffered from anxiety, and what really helped her.
Vedic astrology and the ancient traditional medical science of Ayurveda has remedies for these disorders that are natural and drug-free, or that can support the effectiveness of any medication you may be taking. Plus, we talked about some “spiritual” remedies to alleviate, or even completely remove the suffering of depression and anxiety, especially the practice of Kriya Yoga.
Ryan told us a bit about why he wrote the book Kriya Yoga, Continuing the Lineage of Enlightenment and he will tell us more about it on the next show. I’m reading it now and am enjoying reading his personal story about how he got involved in Kriya Yoga.
We will continue the topic of mental health next month on Dec 10th (Ryan will co-host with me every 2nd Monday of the month from now on, so you will know when to expect him). We didn’t have time to get far into the charts of two children with depression, but we did finish their father’s chart, and the chart of the woman with anxiety. The father’s chart was interesting because his depression was not from the usual Moon/Saturn configurations we’ve come to expect.
I think you’ll find it interesting.
