FULL SYNOPSIS

Ayurveda: The Art of Being is a documentary about the ancient health-care system Ayurveda, which means "The Science of Life" in Sanskrit. The oldest continually practiced medicine in the world, Ayurveda traces its origins to centuries of observations of humans, animals, and plants. At its core, it is an herbal science that is said not only to heal the body, but the spirit as well. Without narration, the film takes a look at several Indian practitioners of Ayurveda who explain how they came to study the medicine and how worldwide interest in their work has grown. A major strength of this film is that it is an eye-opener for the uninitiated westerner, revealing the untapped values of an arcane healing doctrine while demystifying its methods. ~ Connor McMadden, Rovi
