Ayurvedic Psychology Course
5 weeks, 2 hrs per class
Ayurveda considers the mind the link between the spirit and the body and has its own approach to mental health. We will learn how to assess processes in the mind and go into detail to develop skills that support mental health, balance and growth. We will discuss how to apply the Ayurvedic perspective on psychology to daily life and develop skills to support healing of the body and mind.
We’ll take a look at the Vedic philosophy systems that parallel Ayurveda and how they impact psychology, how the goals of yoga inform psychology and how the 4 goals of life intersect with psychology. We’ll tackle the five obstacles to a balanced mind and how Ayurvedic psychology approaches different stages of life. We will cover the use of some natural medicines to heal the mind.
Learn the Ayurvedic concept of structure and function of the mind. Immerse yourself in a range of knowledge of behavior, listening and appropriate boundary setting. Learn how Ayurveda aims to perfect the mind for human growth.
