Dr. Ramkumar, Dr. Robert E. Svoboda, and Dr. Claudia Welch meet with us online to share a conversation around the four āśramas–or stages of life: how we can use them to help us contextualize and navigate studies, families, professions, political and civic obligations, relationships and spiritual practices in ways that reflect and draw on the particular nature and strengths of each stage.
