“Knowledgable and articulate speaker, with a broad, critical, yet caring approach to the subject. She seemed wary of dogmas of any kind, both orthodox and alternative. Relatively unique and meaningful to see an analysis of ‘comparative truths’ from diverse paradigms of human health across chinese, western and ayurvedic traditions.” – Nilushi Disanayake“Claudia Welch is a rare gem of a speaker.

“I simply cannot say enough about Claudia Welch. She has truly been an inspiration in my life. In the seminar, Claudia said, ‘It takes courage to live the life that you want to live.’ It’s so simple and yet I find difficulty in implementing it. But I see her, and I see how she’s making it happen. She decided that it was time for her to slow her life down, to invest in her mental, physical and spiritual wellness, and that’s exactly what she’s doing now. I learn by just watching her interact with students and how she carries herself. She has done some amazing research in combining Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine. I trust her completely with my life.” Sneha Shah Texas

I have made some simple changes in the way I approach stress, my body and my life. It was very refreshing to be in the company of a person who is brilliant in the way she can make connections between eastern and western medicine and philosophies, profound in her insights and simple in her expression.” – Purvi Bhatt India
