The Health Being Institute workshop ‘Body types, personality and health – from ancient teachings to modern science’ will take place on Saturday 30th of September 11am – 1:30pm, Central London.

I’m really pleased to have a co-presenter Angeliki Kompoholi from Greece. Angeliki brings an in-depth knowledge of Ancient Greek and literature and, a skill in bringing this timeless philosophy and wisdom to life, making them relevant to our everyday world.

From ancient traditions, human types have been described by the Humours: choleric, phlegmatic, sanguine and melancholic and in Ayurvedic Medicine by the five elements of ether, air, water, fire and earth. Ancient Greece? Angeliki and I aim to relate this wisdom to the newer discoveries in medicine such as epigenetics and to help you find practical ideas to improve your ‘health being’.

What is our ‘type’ made up in terms of:

  • our personality
  • our types of relationships
  • body type
  • activity and
  • sleep patterns

How can diet, lifestyle, mindfulness and connection help our ‘type’?

The Health Being Institute “Diet and Philosophy” and “Medical Kitchen Wisdom” workshops provide an opportunity for people who are searching to bring together wisdom and science for the benefit of themselves, other people they know and the wider community.

Workshops provide an interesting, joyful exchange, learning from each other in a relaxing environment, with a healthy snack and tea provided.
