Topic: Aurobindonian Perspective on Charkas
Speaker: Dr. Soumitra Basu
Registration: Registration required, no fee for webinar

“One can speak of the chakras only in reference to Yoga. In ordinary people the chakras are not open, it is only when they do sadhana that they open. For the chakras are the centres of the inner consciousness and belong organically to the subtle body. So much as is active in ordinary people is very little—for in them it is the outer consciousness that is active.” (CWSA Vol 28, 231)

In this upcoming webinar, Dr. Sumitra Basu will explain the chakras in relation to the planes of being-consciousness and their role in Integral Yoga.

Dr. Soumitra Basu is a psychiatrist working with consciousness paradigms. He conducts workshops on personal growth and is a Founder-Editor of NAMAH, the Journal of Integral Health. He has authored the book “Integral Health”.

Topic: Enhance Your Immunity, a practical session
Speaker: James Anderson
Registration: Registration required, no fee for webinar

Humanity should look closely at the way it seeks to immunize itself if it is to survive as a species. Never has this been more necessary, because the present scenario is leading society to disaster. Integral Yoga demonstrates a subtler, but more enduring and powerful means of self-protection, one which points the way forward if the human being fulfils its mandate to evolve. In this exploratory and practical session, James will share ways of reinforcing the subtle shield that surrounds us. He will also look at the gradations of immunity that are available to us. We need to untap these inner resources to move forward. Join this session and reach out to true immunity.

James Anderson is currently Coordinating Editor of NAMAH , the Journal of Integral Health: www.namahjournal.com a quarterly journal published in Pondicherry, India. He is fascinated by the relations between growth, wellness, transformation and spirituality.

Topic: Ayurveda’s Multidimensional Approach to Integral Health
Speaker: Dr. Rammanohar
Registration: Registration required, no fee for webinar

In Ayurveda, health is not merely disease free state that can be measured by specific physical parameters. Health is a state of harmony with one’s inner self (svasthya) and the external environment at the same time covering environmental, physical, mental, vital and spiritual aspects at the same time. In this lecture, we will explore the multidimensional view of integral health.

Speaker: Dr. P, Rammanohar received BAMS and MD (Ay) degrees from Bharathiyar University, Coimbatore and Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bengaluru respectively. He has been contributing in the field of Ayurvedic research since the last 30 years.

Sri Aurobindo identifies power, wealth and sex as the three forces having the strongest attraction for the human ego. The Mother later comments: “I believe the three are interdependent and that all three have to be conquered to be sure of having any one – when you want to conquer one you must have the other two. Unless one has mastered these three things, desire for power, desire for money and desire for sex, one cannot truly possess any of them firmly and surely.  . . . Each of these three things not only has its own value in the world of desires, but leans upon the other two.” [Question and Answers, Volume-4, page no.381-382]

In this New Perspectives webinar, Dr. Basu takes a critical look at each of these forces as well as their interdependence.
