Meet Special Guest Presenter: Sofia Avramides
Avraveda is an interwoven spectrum of the healing components founder Sophia Avramides has utilized in her daily life to expose more and more of her health, vitality, and truth.
Her voyage with plants began as a teenager, in discovering the therapeutic value of cannabis - helping her treat chronic health issues.
In 2014, Sophia graduated with a degree in Health Psychology from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.She continued her education by looking towards the East, enrolling in Kripalu’s School of Ayurveda, and trainings in Reiki and subtle energy medicines.
Sophia is a NAMA-certified Ayurvedic Health Counselor. Additionally, she works with energy medicines.
The true balance - while Sophia finds herself a forever student, one of her favorite activities is teaching. She leads workshops on Ayurvedic philosophy, self-care practices, Ayurvedic cooking and cannabis medicine at various locations (see ‘Events’ for more details).
Her passion is driven by a mashup of Ayurvedic wisdom, evidence-based research, plant medicine, psychedelic experiences, natural remedies, subtle energy pathways, deep community connection and radical, genuine acceptance of who we are.
The offerings will expand as Sophia broadens her own understandings of the inner and outer workings of our bodies and interconnectivity with all around us.
