Spiritual Travel and Ayurveda expert Jaisri M. Lambert

Jaisri M. Lambert

Jaisri M. Lambert led the recent retreat "Ayurveda Health & Healing Retreat in India", December 2017.

Jaisri M. Lambert has been practicing and teaching natural therapies since 1983 after her own debilitating migraine headaches kindled her interest in alternative therapies. Her exploration led her first to Polarity Therapy, in which she became certified in 1985. As interest and demand for natural healing classes increased, Jaisri founded the Westcoast Polarity School and later the East-West Polarity School, teaching innovations in Polarity Therapy internationally.

In 1989 she met renowned Ayurvedic physician and author Vaidya Vasant D. Lad, B.A.M.S., MA.Sc. in Victoria, B.C., an event that deeply influenced her life. “Healing is love plus intelligence”, Dr. Lad taught, validating Jaisri’s experience that spirituality and physical life are not separate.

During her twelve-year apprenticeship in classical Ayurveda with Vaidya Vasant Lad she learned many hidden secrets of “Marma” (trigger point) science. Through studying the ancient roots of anatomy and physiology according to Ayurveda, she has developed a body-based counselling science rooted in the ancient Marma therapies of Ayurveda. This science Vaidya Lad called “Turiya Therapy”, which denotes the transformation of our psycho-emotional causes of disease into spiritual wisdom. Turiya Therapy is based on the innovative work of Jaisri M. Lambert R.P.P., and influenced by Polarity Therapy of Dr. Randolph Stone, D.O., D.C., N.D., whose contribution to the study of energy therapy on whole health cannot be underestimated, and Polarity Therapy's parent science of Ayurvedic medicine.

During her twenty years of study and practice of Ayurveda, Jaisri has developed a deep knowledge of herbal formulations, individualized wellness programs, bodywork techniques, pulse assessment, Ayurvedic herbology, and Panchakarma, which consists of classical Ayurvedic cleansing and rejuvenation therapies.

Jaisri has authored many articles and training manuals in Ayurveda and Turiya Therapy, and travels internationally to introduce the theory and practice of this ancient wisdom to delighted students of all levels.
