Within Ayurveda, the principles of pratyahara and dharana form integral facets of holistic health and mental well-being. Pratyahara, the withdrawal of the senses from external stimuli, fosters a deeper connection with oneself. This practice aligns with Ayurveda's emphasis on introspection and self-awareness, allowing individuals to listen to their body's innate wisdom and restore inner balance. Dharana, the art of concentration, complements Ayurvedic philosophy by cultivating mental focus and clarity. By honing the mind's ability to concentrate, individuals enhance their capacity to understand their body's signals, fostering a deeper connection between mind and body. Together, pratyahara and dharana serve as gateways to self-discovery and emotional equilibrium, promoting a harmonious relationship between an individual's inner and outer worlds, a cornerstone of holistic wellness in Ayurveda.

Delve into the world of pratyahara and dharana in this immersive webinar. Our expert, Vasant Lad, will guide you through ancient practices and modern insights that lead to inner peace and concentration. You'll learn how to withdraw your senses, cultivate a focused mind, and gain practical skills such as Trataka and 3rd Eye Concentration.

With over two hours of live instruction, including a Q&A session, you'll have the opportunity to engage directly with Vasant Lad, a living example of the spiritual depth achieved through pratyahara and dharana. Elevate your consciousness, embrace balance, and thrive in the modern world.
