with Lorenna Bousquet-Kacera
After 65 years of living on this beautiful planet, offering workshops, trainings and private sessions I have come to the conclusion that the underlying source of all dis-ease, one that is often overlooked in our medical and even the holistic health movement is, not only the disconnection between heart and mind, but our sense of alienation from nature. For most of human history we walked in union with the natural world - with a recognition of our interconnection and dependence upon mother nature. We had a sense of 'place', of being part of something awesome and larger than ourselves. With the Industrial Revolution, all of this changed. We hoped the new technologies would give us greater freedom, health, happiness and wealth, but it has not worked out that way. Yes, there were and continue to be many wonderful and important discoveries, yet stress levels, and many chronic diseases are at an all time high.
Nature deficit disorders are being identified. As a result many new and exciting forms of therapy have emerged - nature-based therapies, eco-philosophy, eco-psychology. I incorporate these processes into my sessions, along with the tools and practices I have cultivated over the past 25 years through the Shamanu: Earth Wisdom Teachings, my work with Inner Permaculture and Ayurvedic Living Nutrition.
Sessions are crafted to suite each person's individual needs. Noone can heal you - you heal yourself. I will support you, offer you a diversity of tools and techniques to regenerate the broken aspects of body, psyche, heart and spirit. If you embrace these processes in a pro-active way, then transformations will happen. This is team work, with me as your guide and you setting the pace that uniquely fits your healing process. You will be expected to continue the work between sessions with 'homework' that can be incorporated into your everyday life.
The Eco-Life Coaching offers nature-centered healing methods to help you achieve and maintain optimum states of both biological and psycho-spiritual balance. This wholistic approach stimulates your body's natural resilience and creativity.
One hour session - $95
Five Session or more - $85 per session (includes HST tax)

Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultation Programs
The Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultations and Metabolic Empowerment Programs are a one-on-one integrative health plan designed by Shantree Kacera. Our wholistic health programs facilitate a way of life that moves clients toward optimum vitality, wellness and awareness.
The program brings into consideration an Individualized Diet, Lifestyle and Whole Food Supplementation and the finest Organic Herbs and Super-Food Nutrients.
Shantree Kacera uses a personalized, integrated, wholistic approach to health. He observes and assesses a variety of dimensions and perspectives to provide an all-encompassing view of your overall state of health. This approach is based on Ayurvedic Medicine and uses a Tenfold Constitutional Diagnosis, Assessment and Treatment Protocol.
A healing partnership is encouraged between you and Shantree as you make the most nurturing and healing choices for yourself. This guides your therapeutic protocol program in a way and at a pace that uniquely fits your needs. Your therapeutic plan includes:
* Your body-mind personality
* Nutritional program for your unique constitution
* Stress management practices
* Healthy lifestyle awareness
* Herbal & whole food supplementation
* Body-mind-spirit balance
An Ayurvedic lifestyle consultation offers natural healing methods to help you achieve and maintain optimum states of both biological and psycho-spiritual balance. These natural, wholistic approaches stimulate your innate vital healing forces, overcoming imbalances, and allowing optimum health to manifest.
This approach also uncovers hidden resistances to healing, allowing you and your practitioner to see and dissolve blocks as they arise. As the body, mind, and spirit rebalance, subtle and chronic disease often dissipate.
Relief of symptoms depends upon your commitment to your healing process and degree of wellness. The clinic does not focus on or assume responsibility for making diagnoses of pathological disease processes such as cancer. Instead, they aim to discover the underlying psycho- physiological and spiritual processes that keep one from enjoying optimum health.
Who Can Benefit?
Anyone seeking greater health, balance, and well-being will benefit from a personal Ayurvedic lifestyle consultation. You will be empowered with the knowledge and tools needed to transform your life.

About Ayurvedic Constitutional Diagnosis
The Art of Ayurvedic Diagnosis is a unique opportunity to experience a tenfold diagnosis process that will support you in determining current conditions, imbalances in the doshas and ways to correct these imbalances.
To find out the root cause of a disease in Ayurveda few examinations are conducted. The examination of a patient is divided into three parts. They are as follows:
• Palpation, Percussion, Touch.
• Interview & Questions
These steps are applied to a further detailed examination of the patient that is conducted in two ways - Tenfold Examination and Eightfold Examination. The check-up of the patient is done by this test considering the following ten factors.
The tenfold examination has been practiced for thousands of years in ancient Indian and used in Ayurvedic Medicine. In this examination, as the name suggests, the check-up of patient is done by considering the following ten factors:
• Regarding the structural and functional abnormalities of the body
• Geographical situation of the place where patient lives
• Physical strength
• The season and climatic conditions
• The digestive system of the patient
• Prakruti The natural tridosha constitution of the body
• Age of the patient
• Psychological strength of the patient
• General and personal habits of the patient
• Nature of the food
After tenfold examination, the eightfold examination is conducted to diagnose the imbalance or disorder. In this examination, there are 10 constitutional blueprints, which are more practical and useful.
• Fecal matter
• Voice and speech of the patient
• Touch, skin and tactile sense
• Eyes and vision
• General body build & Facial diagnosis, e.g.: lean, muscular, etc.
