Yoga and Positive Psychology
Positive psychology includes concepts, theories and methods of intervention about positive traits, experiences and relations in life. It focuses on realizing the positive human potential. Yoga is also a field which aims at realizing the deepest human potential. Unlike Positive psychology which is primarily focused on emotions and thoughts Yoga based practices also include interventions at the physical and pranic levels of self. Insights of Yoga are relevant not only for the individual self but also relevant for the collective forms of life like family, society and governance. In this session Prof Ashish will elaborate the Yogic perspective of Positive psychology at the levels of individual and collective forms of life based on the empirical and conceptual research work of his team carried out in IIT Bombay.
