    Authentic Living and Well-being with Joe Rich and Victor Briere, A.D.

    Authentic Living and Well-being with Joe Rich and Victor Briere, A.D.

    #093  I’m joined today by Joe Rich and Victor Briere, A.D., co-founders of the International Institute of Ayurveda, which is both a clinic and an academy, offering clients and students ayurvedic diagnostic techniques and health counseling.
    Long-time listeners will remember Victor, who is an Ayurveda doctor, from Episodes 39 and 40, when he shared his backstory and introduced the audience to Ayurvedic practices.  And we met Joe in Episodes 57 and 58, when we talked about the beneficial link between Ayurveda and yoga.
    Joe is a long-time practitioner and teacher of Kundalini yoga, has a degree in healthcare management, a background in counseling emotionally disturbed inner-city teens, running group homes for at-risk youths, and working as an epidemiologist for the CDC.  His goal is to assist people in applying “consciousness” in everyday life and transforming the love of power into the power of kindness.
    We go much deeper in this conversation, including:
    How we become separated from our authentic selves;How this separation impacts our health and well-being; andThe importance of having support while doing the work. This episode has a beautiful ending as we talk about Victor’s experience of leaving one life path to pursue another.  What was intended to be a softball question became a living example of what Victor and Joe covered and recommended to listeners earlier in the episode.

A Priceless Wellness Discovery

I just discovered this podcast a month ago. I was not sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised by the variety of Health, Wellness and Mindfulness topics.
The Host’s in-depth knowledge and own wellness journey is inspiring. But what makes this podcast great is her openness to explore all topics of Wellness through conversations with a variety of interesting Guests.
I have listened to all 80 plus episodes to date and have learned many new tips that I can incorporate into my own journey. Bravo! Always looking forward to the next episode.
Highly recommended!
