It was in a function last evening that I met this educationist who founded a college specialising in clinical psychology.
We clicked, when a casual conversation went on to the time when St. Thomas landed in Kerala in AD 52.
The person holds three doctorates and one of them is in Holistic Yoga. According to him he’s the only PHD on the subject from india and he acquired it from University of California in Berkeley.
He is to meet the Prime Minister of India in three weeks time on the subject.
The most striking part of the discussion was on holistic yoga. Here it’s not only the exercise, diet and various yoga positions that is in focus, but the management of what is like a lifestyle.
He claims that medicines and accompanied diet and exercise are not the most effective healer, but it’s how you respond to the nature.
When you are one with the nature, the medical readings will come to normal.
As a simple example, when you do something, which you like and you get involved fully in it with passion, then you are one with nature and your health- medical, physical and mental will improve.
Perhaps I have some experience in this. When you work for money, you won’t get this passion and just remember the medical indicators like BP, blood sugar, lipids etc.
And consider doing something which you really like and get fully involved in it. Let the routines like diet, workout etc be same. The medical readings get to normal or better. I have a certification to give here.
We also discussed some other subjects, most important were on sex lives of people and the concept of equality. Perhaps this is not the right forum to discuss, but the information gathered were exceptional.
For example on equality, he says 50:50 is not correct. It’s 100% each. Men has a 100% role and women another 100% of their own. Make it 50%_50%, then the game is lost.
I am sure to meet this person again……
