Vedic Counseling with Pandit Vamadeva Shastri and Dr. Suhas Kshirsagar
This approach to counseling requires exploring ourselves and our own minds before we can properly guide others. A source of comprehensive life guidance, Vedic counseling is rooted in the same principles that inform Ayurveda, yoga, and Vedic astrology. All of these disciplines emerged from an understanding of consciousness and draw on the practical wisdom of Vedanta—the unity of all beings in the self. Vedic counseling brings this self-knowledge and cosmic perspective to a therapeutic model that offers individualized approaches for every type of person, group, and circumstance. It guides us towards optimal physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being, addressing all the main goals of life, including health, vocation, education, prosperity, relationships, happiness, and self-realization.
A powerful introduction to a significant emerging treatment paradigm, this practicum will be taught by Vamadeva Shastri and Suhas Kshirsagar, two world-renowned leaders in the fields of Āyurveda, yoga, and jyotish and the coauthors of The Art & Science of Vedic Counseling, a highly acclaimed guidebook on the subject. The session will incorporate practical tools for working in one-on-one settings as well as with groups.
