May Sessions of Vedic Threads: The Heart & The Mind; Neha Tiwari & Laura Clarke Stelmok

May 4, 2023 - May 18, 2023

Schedule and registration for these two 1.5 hour Live Online Sessions 15 & 16  (04 & 18 May, 2023) here: Vedic Threads: Satsangam’s Online Membership Course with Drs. Ramkumar & Claudia

All the gates of the body restrained, the mind confined within the heart, one’s life force fixed in the head, established in concentration by yoga. Bhagavad Gītā:VIII:12

The state of dhyana is a complete abstraction of the senses in which the mind is stilled by the energy of love within the heart, and the individual mind is absorbed into the universal mind. By Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee from the the Naqshbandiyya-Mujaddidiyya Sufi Order

In Indian wisdom traditions, the words for, “mind” (manas) and, “heart” (hṛdayam) seem interchangeable in certain contexts. And sometimes not. What are the differences and connections between the two? Why is this important or meaningful? Is the heart concurrently a physical, mental and energetic organ? Is the mind?

In the first of the May sessions of Vedic Threads, linguist and lover of literature, culture, and knowledge Neha Tiwari has accepted an invitation to join Drs. Ramkumar and Claudia to explore a bit of Ayurveda, tantra and bhakti perspectives on these questions. In the second May session, Laura Clarke Stelmok has accepted an invitation to join the conversation and share a perspective the tradition of Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, a Sufi teacher in the Naqshbandiyya-Mujaddidiyya Sufi Order.

How can we prepare for these sessions? Let us consider in our own being, what feels like the mind or the brain and what feels like the heart? How do we experience them and their connection?

We welcome you to join us in heartfelt conversation on these themes, in our twice-monthly Vedic Threads membership-based course.
