  • Explore the roots of Western and Eastern psychology and how they relate to each other and the modern world.
  • Learn more about how we experience trauma, and why people respond differently to the same traumatic event.
  • Gain an understanding of psychological, yogic, and ayurvedic terms to help you better get to know each discipline and how they relate to each other.
