TESTIMONIALS FROM PULSE COURSE STUDENTS
feel like this course hit all three ways that we learn: We listen,
watch and do. By using video, audio and the written word, I feel that
the information was presented in a really comprehensive way."
love the audio, that is the most critical part. Not only did I learn a
ton regarding the pulse, the bits of information threaded into the audio
were invaluable. These lectures gave me a greater depth of
understanding and integrating the material I was learning at Kripalu.
John Douillard is so passionate about this material that it is
inspiring. I also love how much research he conducts relating modern
medicine to Ayurveda."
"Best e-course I've taken so far. Thank you!"
was ABSOLUTELY blown away by the depth of knowledge learned in this
course. I discovered deep and intimate knowledge about my body and the
movement of disease through the human body. I am forever changed by the
emotional aspect of disease and how it is revealed through the pulse."
love the way Dr. John teaches. He talks about the ancient system of
Ayurveda, then in the same sentence will bring it into the practical
aspect of why the information is important and relevant to modern
"I think the beauty of this course is that one
can do it over and over again. I like the slow pace and the pdfs are
great to serve as a long for the pulse practice. I hear John's voice
every single time I reach to take my pulse."
"So much valuable info...I will be returning to watch/listen/and reread again and again."
am very happy to have taken this course. Dr. Douillard is absolutely
amazing at delivering the wonderful knowledge of the Pulse in a clear,
consistent and accessible way."
"I will be reviewing this course
many times, for my self-development as a Lifestyle Consultant. Very
clear and helpful practice and learning..."
"I think this course
was great. I especially loved lessons 9 and 10. I think I will listen to
those at least 10 more times and come back to it many. The pulse work
is hard, what has been harder for me is to physically track my results. I
take my pulses daily but often at times when there was nothing to
record with or more than that, it would take me out of being present
into the experience. I understand the necessity for recording and need
to get better at it."
"I have tried many times to learn pulse
reading and this course gives me the confidence to practice more and
read my old books now."
"Great course; beautiful knowledge; very
accessible and powerfully delivered. I never imagined an online program
in something so esoteric could be so effective or useful, but it was."
