ROBERT SVOBODA - MASTER SERIES

AYURVEDIC PSYCHOLOGY


Ayurveda teaches that in almost every instance the root cause for physical afflictions can be found in the mind. Although Bhuta Vidya, which is one of the eight “limbs” or branches of classical Ayurveda, is usually translated into English as “psychology,” it is in a more literal sense “the study of the past.” This seminar will explore how the past affects us now and, via the choices we make in the present, how it directs our futures, with special emphasis on ahamkara, the power of self-identification and individualization.


Ahamkara both generates the limitations of the personality and offers ways to surmount and eliminate those limitations. This self-identifying power that unites body, mind and spirit to create an individual is the same power that must be harnessed if that individual is to live up to his or her spiritual potential, and an essential first step in this harnessing is to heal & cultivate the psyche, to ensure its cooperation in the transformation.
