Two Certificate Courses Indian Psychology

Two Certificate CoursesIndian Psychology
At Pondicherry and Delhi June to October २०१०
organised by the Indian Psychology Institute.

These courses offer an introduction to Indian Psychology. They are largely, but not exclusively, based on the work of Sri Aurobindo, and cover topics like philosophical background; self and personality; cognition and modes of knowing; yoga-based research methodologies; motivation and the aim of life; emotions and attitudes; individual change and development; relationships; professional work involving psychology (education, therapy, organisational psychology, etc.).
Information transfer is, however, only one aspect of these courses। Their central focus is on increasing one’s self-knowledge, and on developing consciousness-based psychological skills and ­attitudes that help in one’s personal growth. In Indian ­approaches to Psychology one has to begin with understanding one’s own self, and apply that understanding to life. Only then, can one hope to understand, teach or otherwise help others.
