A historical account of the ancient holistic practice, Ayurveda. Originating in India and then spreading to Egypt, Greece, Rome, Tibet, China, Russia and Japan, Ayurveda is probably the world's oldest continually practiced holistic healthcare system. The technique requires healers to scan their patients by covering the body with a certain kind of mud to discover the mysteries of the human mind and body in order to cure illnesses that result in the imbalance between human beings' life energies.

A film that takes you inside the rhythms of its subject: You experience it as you watch.
If Ayurveda can help us return to a sane regimen of eating, sleeping and stress-reducing contemplation, it is clearly a good thing.
Alternative medicine obviously has its merits ... but Ayurveda does the field no favors.
It would work much better as a one-hour TV documentary.
Unspools like a highbrow, low-key, 102-minute infomercial, blending entrepreneurial zeal with the testimony of satisfied customers.

Like all infomercials, Ayurveda: Art of Being is heavy on testimonials and light on statistics.
While the filmmaking may be a bit disjointed, the subject matter is so fascinating that you won't care.
Director Nalin Pan doesn't do much to weigh any arguments one way or the other. He simply presents his point of view that Ayurveda works. No question.
Reinforces the often forgotten fact of the world's remarkably varying human population and mindset, and its capacity to heal using creative, natural and ancient antidotes.
Pan Nalin's exposition is beautiful and mysterious, and the interviews that follow, with the practitioners of this ancient Indian practice, are as subtle and as enigmatic.
A fascinating documentary that provides a rounded and revealing overview of this ancient holistic healing system
