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


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.

August Sessions of Vedic Threads: Prāṇa, the Mind and Haṭha Yoga with Robert Moses & Scott Blossom

Robert Moses and Dr. Scott Blossom will join Drs. Ramkumar & Claudia for a discussion on how we work with obstruction of the circulation of prāṇa through haṭha yoga practice and the role that the mind (manas) plays in the process. Scott and Robert will share with us the benefit we can experience when we use the mind to focus prāṇa on marma points (points where prāṇa stagnates in the body), and devotional practices like puja or prayer to resolve karmas that may be obstructing free-flowing prāṇa, or simply on circulating prāṇa.

There is an upāya, or Jyotiṣical remedy, which prescribes a specific rāga (Indian musical composition), based on a person's natal birth chart, to bring more harmony to the life of that person. We will explore related ideas about about time, measurement, distance, emotion, and nakṣatras (constellations).
