Day 08 Session 02: A Workshop On Ayurvedic Psychology & Heart-Centred Living by Mala Kapadia

About the Workshop

The Self as we understand in xenophobic way is a body-brain and mind complexity. We are in the web of Life and yet unaware of our interconnectedness and expansion possibility. Samkhya which forms the basis of Yoga and Ayurveda gives us the understanding of Self as emerging from 5 Mahabhootas, or Tattvas. What is the connection between them, with our senses, our personality, habitual behaviors in thoughts, emotions and action? This workshop explores our integrality within and with the Universe. For real change to happen, our fixed idea of our body and ourselves has to change, and we need to relate to the world from a new Center- The Heart. Insights from Ayurveda Psychology, understanding of the functions and functioning of 5 Mahabhootas, and practices to create a new experience will be the theme of this workshop. As we are all in the pause button with pandemic lockdown, and The Mother Earth reclaiming Herself, let us participate in re-forming our own Self and collectively co-create the future of humanity, individually and collectively.
