    Isolation. Livelihoods upended. Elders dying alone in nursing homes. Youth separated from peers and teachers. The list of losses is exhaustive and exhausting. While loss is nothing new, this pandemic has overwhelmed us with a tragedy previously unimaginable. How do we grieve?

With over 30 years of ethics-related experience in a variety of settings, she has chaired a hospital ethics committee, founded and directed UNM’s Health Sciences Ethics Program.

    Āyurveda, known as the sister-science of Yoga, is a system based upon the five elements of ether:  air, fire, water, and earth.  These five elements combine to form  three doshas  (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha).  We each have these three doshas in varying proportions at birth, and this original ratio tends to change due to stresses of modern living.  Come explore how Āyurveda supports the process of moving from a state of imbalance toward the harmony of balance. Julie Dunlop, author of Ocean of Yoga:  Meditations on Yoga and Āyurveda for Balance, Awareness, and Well-Being, has been an adjunct faculty member in the English Department at CNM for seventeen years.  She is a certified yoga teacher RYT-500 through Yoga Alliance and a certified Ayurvedic Practitioner through the National Ayurvedic Medical Association.
