Four-day Workshop Integral Indian Psychology
At Puducherry
14-17 December 2017

Introduction

The Indian Psychology Institute aims to contribute to the development of new approaches to psychology based on Indian philosophy, yoga and a life-affirming spirituality. The method we follow is largely, but not exclusively, based on Sri Aurobindo's vision of an ongoing evolution of consciousness and the integral synthesis he made of the psychological essence of the various systems of yoga found in the Indian tradition. IPI workshops offer an introduction into various concepts and techniques of Integral Indian Psychology with a focus on conscious self-development.

Course content and description

The central focus of this workshop is on increasing one's self-knowledge, and on developing consciousness-based psychological attitudes and skills that enable an individual to live a fulfilled life. It covers topics like consciousness as the foundation of reality, self and personality, individual change and development, yoga-based research methodologies, etc.

The basic concepts and processes that are part of Indian Psychology are explained in lectures and discussion groups based on an intense, direct interaction between the facilitators and the participants. An attempt is made to help the participants experience the core concepts and processes that come up in the lectures, and to explore, both collectively and ┬Čindividually, how they can be used for one's personal growth as well as in one's professional work.

Eligibility

This workshop is open to anyone who seriously wants to get an experience-based understanding of Indian approaches to psychology. However, preference will be given to students, research scholars, teachers in academic institutions and professionals in psychology related areas who intend to apply it in their work.
