  • Discover the profound wisdom hidden within the ancient Vedic texts in our Yogic Counseling Foundation Course. This interactive online program, conducted via Zoom, takes you on a journey through the timeless teachings found in various Vedic scriptures, including Valmiki’s Ramayana (specifically referred to as Yoga Vashistha or Vashistha Gita and Astavakra Gita), Vyasa’s Mahabharata (verses, known as Krishna Gita or Bhagavad Gita Bhishma Gita, Vidura Gita, Ashtavakra Gita, Vyadha Gita, and the Avadhoota Gita.)
  • These sage conversations have illuminated the path to self-discovery and self-understanding for individuals of all ages, helping them unravel the complexities of their minds and the nature of reality through a unique and little-known counseling approach. Unfortunately, these profound teachings are often reduced to mere cultist or religious texts due to inaccurate translations, leading to the loss of their invaluable wisdom. Our course aims to rectify this by exploring the original Vedic Sanskrit language in which these texts were written, enabling you to grasp their true essence.
  • Throughout the course, you will also delve into the origins and etymology of Vedic Sanskrit words, tracing their evolution across different ages and texts. We’ll also bridge the gap between ancient yogic concepts and modern psychology, demonstrating how these age-old teachings can complement and empower contemporary psychological understanding.

You’ll have the opportunity to directly engage with Vedic Sanskrit shlokas, learning to read, understand, and explain them, all while benefiting from the profound wisdom they contain.
  • In a world where the boundaries between body, brain, mind, consciousness, and intellect remain elusive to modern psychology, this Yogic Counseling Foundation Course offers a unique opportunity to uncover the deep insights that these ancient sages possessed. Join us on this transformative journey to unlock the true potential of your mind and gain a profound understanding of the nature of reality.
