YOGA MEETS BRAIN RESEARCH - MEDITATION WORKSHOP
ANCIENT KNOWLEDGE MEETS MODERN SCIENCE
In Western sciences the field of Psychology has tried to put the human mind into different systems. Whether you are familiar with Erich Fromm, Sigmund Freud or other big names in modern Psychology, you will always find the same approach: Things are thought by the mind and then put onto reality. If it works in some ways we accept this model, yet it remains a theory. On the other hand, in the ancient traditions observation is used to understand the make-up of nature and reality itself. In Yoga philosophy the mind is not an obscure thing that may exist, but states of awareness, the compartments of the mind and their functions are described in detail. Via Yogic practices like Meditation, we can learn to use our gifts and create our lives from within.
QUANTUM PHYSICS AND YOGA
In modern Physics the latest findings seem to be crossing the world of magic. Using top-notch technology, scientist have found the same principles the ancient sages and Yogis have been talking about in the holy scriptures all over the world. The importance and functionality of Yogic practices in undeniable as we are far more creators than we might think. While we unravel the mystics around reality, we will explore how we can consciously create reality from within through meditation.
THE MIND AND THE CONCEPT OF THE SELF
Our mind can do many things. From memorizing, inventing to knowing, many tasks can be managed. But how do we know that we are we? How does the concept of the Self emerge? Known as “Ego” (Freudian Psychology), the Self has not have had the best reputation in the west. We will shed a light on the ancient concept of the mind and the individual.
BRAIN RESEARCH AND CONSCIOUSNESS
For many centuries people tried to figure out what role our grey matter plays in the big game of reality. Neither the seat of the Self nor how consciousness arises has been unraveled. But how we perceive things, our senses and the processing of information in the related brain regions have been studied for a long time. In the last decades the methods have been refined and the key to guiding thoughts and behaviour has been found. We will take a deeper look into the different brain regions and their functions as well as the concept of free will vs. fate and the individual that we call "I". We´ll explore the function of meditation and their effects on the brain and the mind itself.
