Basic Course in Smriti Meditation (Ayurveda Meditation Therapy based on Satvavajaya principles) - 24th Batch

Registration is ongoing. The next batch of classes commences on 18th June 2024.
Certificate programme in interactive guided meditation technique based on Ayurveda psychotherapy: Ayurveda identifies the root cause of disease as Prajnaparadha (intellectual blasphemy). Piled-up emotions, intertwined with memories from childhood to the present, can influence the body and mind's responses, ultimately shaping our physical and mental health. This holistic approach recognizes that every individual has the capacity to be aware of their negative emotions and transform them into positive ones. However, modern conditioning often trains us not to introspect. This lack of internal awareness can be a major contributing factor to many psychic and psychosomatic illnesses.

Ayurveda recommends Satvavajaya treatments to overcome errors in Prajnaparadha. Five distinct tools like Gyana, Vigyana, Dhairya, Smriti, and Samdhi needs to be imparted judiciously to cure psychic and psychosomatic diseases. Smriti Ayurveda MeditationTherapy, a unique technique, is designed to incorporate all these five components of Satvavajaya treatment to cure psychic and psychosomatic diseases. Through interactive guidance Smriti Ayurveda Meditation Therapy helps patients to transcend to the subtle layers of their being and facilitates a smooth journey into deeper realms. This introspection can empower individuals to identify and address the root causes of their illnesses. Its effectiveness extends to a wide range of psychic and psychosomatic conditions, including anxiety, depression, phobia, panic attacks, migraine, post-traumatic stress disorders, OCDs, personality disorders, arthritis, asthma, thyroiditis, insomnia, low back pain and irritable bowel syndrome.
