Indic <br/>Psychology




India has a rich cultural and civilizational foundation of her own worldview that has created literature on Psychology, scattered across  various time zones and disciplines such as Philosophy, Yoga and Ayurveda. 

However, Psychology in India, as also in most of the countries today, is taught through a mixed curriculum that is influenced by the European and American worldview and way of life.

This Indica Course draws upon the ancient, yet very relevant, wisdom of Ayurveda and Yoga that has now been rediscovered by modern sciences of Psychoneuroimmunology, Cardio Energetics, Epigenetics and even Quantum Physics. It weaves a tapestry of ancient and modern theory and practice based on the Universal principles derived from Ayurveda and Yoga. Aspirants enrolling into this Indica Course are bound to discover Psychology in a new light.

Come join us and acquaint yourselves with Indic Psychology and reacquaint yourself with indigenous Indic knowledge systems.

The post pandemic world needs to revise its own understanding of what is life and what it is be Human. We need to revive the interconnectedness of Human Beings with each other and Nature. The outward growth fueled by Technology and internet have not resulted in a similar growth of inner consciousness and inner-net. The one who knows Self, will understand the others and the world. 

Indic Psychology is the way forward for humanity struggling to balance physical and mental health. While Happiness Courses and Ministries are being offered and yet, pursuit of Happiness is still alluding.

Indic Psychology gives us the lens to have the right world view, reconnects us with Heart, generates holistic and integrating understanding of body-mind and Spirit.
