PRIMORDIAL SOUND MEDITATION

What is meditation?

Meditation is a tool for rediscovering the body’s own inner intelligence. Practiced for thousands of years, it’s not about forcing the mind to be quiet; it’s about finding silence that’s already there and making it a part of your life.

Silence is the birthplace of happiness, creativity, and infinite possibilities. From this field of pure potentiality we get our bursts of inspiration, our most intuitive thoughts, and our deepest sense of connection to the Universe. Practicing meditation on a daily basis allows us to create a life greater compassion and fulfillment. Meditation is a journey to the center of our very being; a journey to emotional freedom; and a journey to the reawakening of our unconditioned self.

What is Primordial Sound Meditation?

Primordial Sound Meditation is a meditation technique originating in the ancient wisdom of India. Primordial sounds-the basic, most essential sounds of nature-are used to disconnect us from the activity of life. These individually selected sounds, known as mantras, are based on the vibration the universe was making at the moment of your birth.

Once your Primordial Sound mantra has been determined, you will be taught how to use it on a daily basis to reawaken balance, tranquility, and compassion within. Your Chopra Center-certified instructor will help you to this practice into your daily routine.

How will Primordial Sound Meditation affect my health?

Nowadays, doctors are increasingly citing stress as a major contributing factor to most illness. Even though meditation should not be considered a cure itself, research has shown it to be beneficial for a wide range of health problems. As stress is greatly eliminated through Primordial Sound Meditation, our minds and bodies begin to function with maximum effectiveness, creating health vitality and happiness.

How do I learn Primordial Sound Meditation?

Primordial Sound Meditation is easily learned in four short sessions over a period of a few days.

In Session One, your Chopra Center-certified meditation instructor will introduce you to the basic principles of meditation, its history, and the importance of your mantra.

In Session Two, you will receive personal instruction in your Primordial Sound mantra and learn how to use it. You will try meditation for the first time using your Primordial Sound mantra.

In Session Three, you will learn the practical aspects of meditation, share your experience, receive answers to any questions, and meditate with your instructor.

In Session Four, you will attend a lecture about the higher states of consciousness that can be achieved with regular Primordial Sound Meditation practice. Your instructor will share Deepak Chopra’s vision of these higher states.

Primordial Sound Meditation is recommended for anyone who wishes to enjoy deeper peace, greater freedom, and mastery of life.

SVADHAYA

Excel Centre has started something unique. Svadhaya was inaugurated by Dr. D. Borkotoky- Ex Principal of GMC and an eminent physician in presence of other eminent physicians from Guwahati.

With a desire to help bring about a holistic way of life we at Excelcare Hospitals offer you ‘SVADHAYA’- a centre to explore, study and understand the innermost levels of yourself so that life becomes more meaningful, harmonious and tranquil.

“You are citizen of two worlds-the world within and the world without. To be a successful person you will need to understand how to build a bridge between these two worlds. Extreme views are not helpful to the world, nor are they helpful in your own life. It is best to gain control of your thoughts, sensations, emotions and urges.” –Swami Rama.

Why SVADHAYA?

We recommend Svadhaya because it assures:-

  • A New Awareness
    • Medical treatment is what most people come for
        • But reassurance and comfort that human contact could bring is just as valuable
        • Contracted awareness to an expanded awareness
        • Bringing awareness into the field of health is the next big step
  • Health and Wellbeing
    • We want to move away from defining health solely in physical terms to defining health as a state of dynamic balance between mind, body and spirit or consciousness.
    • Prevention focuses on risk factors that are also basically physical- exercise, diet and stress
    • Holistic health- more often just replaces pharmaceuticals with herbs, exercise with Yoga, processed food for organic food
    • Awareness must be a factor in holistic health- our quest for health must include the physical , the mind and the spirit.

YOGA

Courses of Svadhyaya Centre

“Yoga is the cessation of movements in the consciousness.” (Y.S.I.2)

In order to experience and attain a state of Yoga, the great sage Patanjali who lived around 200 B.C. has listed eight aspects (ashtanga yog) which can be practiced by common people like us.

These eight aspects (ashta-anga) of Yoga are :

    • Yama
    • Niyama
    • Asana
    • Pranayama
    • Pratyahara
    • Dharana
    • Dhyana
    • Samadhi

The sessions on Yoga (to be conducted by Neelakshi Duwarah) will seek to propagate these eight aspects of Yoga as taught by the renowned Yoga masters Yogacharya B K S Iyengar, Srimati Geeta Iyengar and Shri Prashant Iyengar of the Ramamani Iyengar Yoga Institute , Pune, India.

Neelakshi (Pathak) Duwarah completed her Post Graduation with specialization in Econometrics from Gauhati University in 1995. Thereafter, she independently pursued research in a couple of socio-economic projects.

In 2002, she was introduced to Yoga by Rajiv and Swati Chanchani, [disciples of Yogacharya (Padma Vibhushan) B K S Iyengar] at the Yog-Ganga Centre for Yoga Studies located in the foothills of Mussoorie. What started as a means to achieve freedom from bodily afflictions became a passion and a way of life for her. She owes this to the grace of God and of course, her fantastic teachers. Following the urge to share something which gave her a new birth, so to say, she trained to teach Yoga according to the Iyengar tradition. Initially she taught Yoga as a subject under the ICSE Board at Ann Mary School and Welham Girls’, both of which are renowned schools in Dehradun. In 2009, she relocated to Guwahati, Assam, where she continues to practice and teach Yoga.

She is now listed as a teacher for the state of Assam, India, in the website www.bksiyengar.com

IYENGAR YOGA

Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar with his intellectual and spiritual practices has masterminded the techniques which can be used by all practitioners of Yoga. “Research based experience” and “experience based research” has helped him in evolving this technique. He has made it possible for ordinary human beings to experience the wisdom of the Yoga Sutras. He finds the meaning of the Sutras by practical search and regular practice. His style of teaching Yoga which is now being followed by certified teachers has been called Iyengar Yoga. Iyengar Yoga has shown how all the eight aspects of Ashtanga Yoga are integrated.

Iyengar Yoga is meant for all and is a way of life. The use of props, designed by Guruji, such as wooden gadgets, belts and ropes helps the practitioner to achieve perfection in any asana. Props are helpful on multiple levels. For patients with physical problems, fear or nervousness, asanas might not be possible. They can be initiated because props take away fear and build confidence. Those who have some proficiency can use props to go on to a different plane.

Those adept are able to mature in their sadhana.

Guruji’s method of teaching yoga asana is based on a triad of
Precision
Timing
Sequencing

These three are not a rigid set of rules. Each of them depends on various factors like aim, condition, age, time of the day, mental state, schedule, environmental condition etc.

Regular practice of ‘Iyengar Yoga’ definitely integrates the body, mind and emotions.

Meditation

Realise your true nature and your true purpose……………

Meditation is a specific technique for resting the mind and attaining a state of consciousness that is totally different from the normal waking state. The root of the word meditation is similar to that for medical or medicate- it implies the sense of ‘attending to’ or ‘paying attention to’ something. In meditation you pay attention to dimensions of yourself which are seldom known-your own deepest, innermost levels.

The meditation technique followed here will be mantra meditation based on an ancient Vedic meditation technique.

YOGA THERAPY 
Yoga Therapy Courses are designed to give people a good alternative of understanding their health problem and what to do to fix it. It is for everyone with any kind of ailment seeking an alternative way of healing themselves. The main focus is to give a working knowledge and confidence for each participant for their Healing Self-Practice at home to continue helping their ailment. The Therapy Course includes many corrections and close personal supervision in order to help the student understand their healing process.

An ailment can take root and develop into a seemingly chronic issue over years of misalignment or ill-treatment of the body. It then requires time and correct actions before it can be removed from the body. Therefore it is to be understood that only those willing to take up a Healing Self Yoga Practice seriously may apply for the Yoga Therapy Course.
