Grand Opening for Lotus Healing Arts

May 9, 2008 • 3-7pm
302 Pearl Street

We are celebrating the opening of a new healing center!

Dr. Lad, renowned Ayurvedic physician, will lead Agni Hotra fire ritual and a blessing ceremony, and will also offer a public talk on "spirituality in everyday life".

There will be an open house and tours of the new solar-heated facility.

The North end of the Building at 302 Pearl Street has just been substantially remodeled, and is now the home of both Boulder Ayurveda and BalanceWorks. The space has been designed to optimize passive solar performance and create a peaceful and healing environment.

He is one of Dr. Lad’s advanced students and has been helping with the Ganesh Ayurveda Ashram project in Pune, India.

We plan to enjoy Prasad food after closing the blessing ritual.

You are welcome to bring prasad food offerings to share, but please do not bring food containing meat or eggs. Specifically recommended food items are fruit such as dates, bananas or apples, and cookies or baked goods that go well with chai.

As well, you are invited to make a financial offering of any amount, which will be shared equally between Dr. Lad's new clinic project in Pune, India - the Ganesh Ayurveda Ashram, and a fund used in Boulder to assist those who need help with the cost of their Ayurvedic medicine - the Ganesh Medicine Fund.
