About Joey Bujold
Hi! My name is Joey Bujold. I'm a Vedic Astrologer and Ayurvedic Practitioner, born and raised in the West, and I am extremely passionate towards both learning and propagating the timeless wisdom of the Vedic systems to a modern society, in need of healing.
Hailing from the the Gaspé peninsula in Quebec, during my late teenage years, I became increasingly interested in Eastern traditions and philosophies, having learned about yoga and meditation as a young adult. Having suffered (and later being completely cured) from chronic respiratory conditions from childhood, as well as having assisted close family members through severe illness, I gradually became engaged in learning more about preventative healthcare and natural integrative medicine models.
My formative background was a natural fit when I eventually discovered Ayurveda, which is a mind-body-spirit integrative approach towards preventative healthcare. Later, I discovered Jyotisha and I'm in the process of continuing his ongoing studies in this discipline, with Freedom Cole, from the Shri Achyutānanda Das Tradition from Orissa India, as well as Sam Geppi, founder of the American Academy of Vedic Art and Science.
I am committed to the propagation of Ayurvedic Medicine as a means of holistic and preventative health care. As such, I'm also an active member of the Ayurvedic Association of Canada. I've given public seminars and written published articles for Ayurveda Mantra Magazine.
I also possess a demonstrated track record in the corporate world, as a professional IT project manager. Balancing family life and a professional career in more recent years, I studied Ayurveda under several notable teachers both locally and abroad, such as Ismat Nathani (DNM) at Caish in Toronto, Dr. Vasant Lad at the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, NM, among others.
I firmly believe that the journey of a healer doesn’t begin and end with academic schooling, it is an never-ending, ever-evolving lifelong journey and complete labour of love. As such, I am committed to continuing my ongoing education as I assist in a small way in delivering the message of Ayurveda, Astrology and Yoga to the public.
