Keynote Topics

Introduction to Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a system of holistic medicine that guides us on how to live in harmony with nature, thus our own specific human nature. This is where perfect health lies. Once we attune ourselves with this state, one radiates through life in a frictionless flow at their greatest potential.

While this “Science of Life” is highly complex and intricately intelligent, simultaneously it is very simple.

Dylan will share the basic principles of Ayurveda and how to apply it to everyday life in a practical way for people to enjoy implementing it.

Through relevant holistic and preventative actions, circadian patterns, rituals, self-treatments, diet and nutrition, Dylan shares how to actually LIVE Ayurveda, then accordingly live in peace with minimal to no suffering while radiating happiness and love.

The Sun as a Divine Healer for Optimal Health

Throughout evolution, exposure to sunlight and the photosynthesis of vitamin D has been critically important for the evolution of land vertebrates. But all of a sudden in the past few decades, we have been burying the Sun from our lives while simultaneously increasing our exposure to artificial light. Could this be a foundational mistake for our health? Has the status quo’s fear of the sun been blown out of proportion?

The 2017 Nobel Prize was won for “Circadian Medicine” simply showing that ‘going back to nature’ is the prescription for healing.

Dylan shares how to work with the Sun to optimise your health and re-establish this important and foundational human-Sun relationship.

Superseding the Chronic Disease Epidemic

Epidemics of chronic diseases are exponentially growing alongside our modern lifestyle.
Ayurveda has never been so relevant to humanity than right now. And what the 2017 Nobel Prize for Medicine was won for supports this – it was won for “Circadian Medicine,” which is basically “Ayurveda 101” (living in tune with nature’s circadian rhythms).

Half of the men will get cancer in their life. 1 in 3 women will get cancer. Diabetes, auto-immune diseases, infertility, premature blindness, autism, dementia, Alzheimer’s and more are all rapidly taking over the bodies of our population.

One should not fear or stress about this, but become aware and empowered to take action to not fall into these statistics which we are not naturally meant to!

Dylan shares practical tips on preventative medicine, from very simple no-brainer at-home adjustments, to home -remedies, to bigger steps to take control of your health.

The Gift of Ayurvedic Cleansing: Optimise Your Body’s Detox Mechanisms

Activate and optimise your body’s innate detox pathways and biological rhythms. Also learn some deeper cleansing techniques to implement at home to purify inevitable toxic burdens out of your life.

Pulse Diagnosis and Self-Pulse Therapy

Feeling your own pulse itself is therapy as it connects your physiology with the underlying source of consciousness. This immediately puts you in the present moment.

There are many methods of pulse diagnosis all over the world…

The good news is, the Pulse Diagnosis method that Dylan Smith teaches is one of the easiest and effective methods out there which is objective and logical.

This method was passed down by Dylan’s teachers, internationally renowned masters of Ayurveda and Pulse Diagnosis, the Raju family.

This healing art and science is a most refined, accurate and comprehensive diagnostic tool employed to figure out where any imbalance exists in the body, and what the nature of the imbalance is.

Pulse isn’t only for diagnosis…

Learning this method of the pulse also promotes you to develop super subtle sensory perception, which essentially enhances your overall approach to healing and relationships.

Dylan will initiate you into tools and practices for you to begin self-pulse. Then further lessons can develop over time if requested.

This can be done in a lecture or workshop setting for anyone, including children.

Ayurvedic Self-Oil-Massage (Abhyanga) Workshop

Express self-love and self-respect by lovingly anointing yourself from head to toe with warm oil. This practice is called Self-Abhyanga, and is a crucial part of the Ayurvedic daily routine.

A daily Abhyanga practice restores the balance of all biological agents and enhances well-being and longevity.
Abhyanga particularly enhances lymphatic drainage, blood circulation, feeds the microbiome living on your skin and most notably, pacifies the nervous system.

Learn how to perform Ayurvedic Massage (“Abhyanga”) on yourself (and your loved ones) and experience the uniqueness of this nourishing form of massage.

Bring your healing hands, a bowl of oil and your thirsty skin.

Ayurvedic Body Treatments Demonstration

View a live demonstration of various Ayurvedic body therapies to balance the nervous system, musculo-skeletal system including back, spine, neck and knees, lymphatic optimisation, organ healing and more.

Bring your healing hands and curious mind.

Ayurvedic Rejuvenation Therapy

Diet, lifestyle and herbs are important for ones health, but when we want to heal and balance the physiology at a deep level and create profound change, Ayurveda employs a particular detox and rejuvenation therapy.

You will get an insight into what it’s like to receive this pampering therapy in a clinical setting. Plus, you will learn practices and techniques for how you can do it yourself! These tools are designed for those who are ready to feel lighter, more energised and peaceful. 

This workshop was created to inspire people to the depth of Ayurvedic rejuvenation and detox therapies.
It will include a variety of depths of knowledge amongst the scale of Ayurvedic rejuvenations therapies  – from practices that people can do at home to detox and rejuvenate themselves, to deeper work they can do with a practitioner locally, to fascinating deep therapies that are done during deep immersions in various clinics in places like India.
We will further explore practical implications – what we can take from Ayurveda’s premier detox and rejuvenation therapy: Panchakarma, and implement in local clinics.
How is the ancient leech treatment used in modern medicine today? Including in mainstream western hospitals. What is a sustainable and safe way to implement enema therapy (basti)? How toxins are purged out of the head (Nasya).
Note, if you are a practitioner, this does not mean you will be able to practice these interventions, but to learn and gain an insight about them.

Rhythms and Cycles in Nature: Exploring the Innate Stages of Life

How do we prepare our body for healthy adulthood, reproduction, smooth menopause and comfortable “elder years”?  how to access and utilise the power of these crucial life-transitioning periods with simple, accessible and powerful actions for you to live a rewarding and vital life.

Foraging for Food and Medicine (Workshop)

Go for a walk with Dylan and learn how to identify wild foods and weeds, what their uses are and how to prepare and consume them. Dylan shares why the wild and fresh diet is packed with life-force (prana) and is the purest, most rewarding and fulfilling food you can eat.

Exploring a New Normal For Health

The direction that current health trends and medical statistics are heading towards are uninspiring to say the least. The rise of disease and epidemics calls for individuals to take action towards fundamental responsibilities of human life.
Learn profound and relevant tools and techniques to supersede the ailing “norm” and status quo of today and radiate vitality for all to enjoy.

Sacred Woman's Health

Why is a young man like Dylan so interested and passionate about women’s health? Because that is the foundational opportunity for the best preventive medicine. If we can optimise the female reproductive system, that future human being brought into the world will have optimal health throughout their long life.

Menstruation as the greatest gift to a woman, conscious conception, pregnancy, post-natal regimen, menopause, balancing the hormonal web, rituals and actions and more to enliven the cosmic creative potential (shakti) for radiant energy levels and to honour the sanctity of feminine energy.

This talk is valuable for any man who wants to respect, honour and love the women in his life.

Ayurvedic Nutrition & The Ritual of Eating

Transcend food fads and diets by understanding innate dietary patterns that nature and the seasons gracefully provide for you.

What we eat is one important aspect in nutrition, but for some people HOW we eat is more essential.

Learn how to use food as medicine in a delightful way and cultivate an ability to obtain maximum nourishment and energy from food.

Truly Understanding the 3 Doshas in Ayurveda & Self-Pulse Technique

If you have heard of Ayurveda, you probably have heard of the three doshas: Vata, Pitta, Kapha. These are bio-energetic and elemental expressions of consciousness that are not only in human biology, but permeate the whole universe.
These three dosas can become a “fashionable trend”, and people can misuse them through over-complicating them in a rigid manner.
However, if you truly understand the doshas, you can recognise them in every moment in life, and utilise these laws of nature to bring harmony and balance to yourself and those around you. 
In this workshop, you will learn the foundations of the three doshas so that you can understand them in a more sophisticated and complete way.
This greater and more elaborate understanding of the 5 elements and 3 doshas grants you greater capacity to live life with these three elemental laws of nature with expanded richness.
