I’m a few days into my project so I thought I’d post an update of what I’ve been doing so far:
The first stop on my project was the School of Ancient Wisdom; on the first day I participanted in a workshop on mindfulness therapies in mental health. The next workshop was about chakra meditation and it’s benefits in both physical and mental health.
On the second day at the school I learnt about the science of yoga and the healing properties of specific Asanas (poses) and breathing exercises as well as other techniques.
I am thoroughly enjoying my time in India, and I have learnt so much important information on holistic practises and therapies with respect to mental health.
As my first week continues, I will be participating in workshops and seminars from a clinical psychiatric perspective at the Nation Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS) in Bangalore. I will get to see first hand a psychiatric hospital in India and how the system and resources differ from those in the UK.
I will post an update at the end of the week with more information.
Thank you for reading my update! I do not have the full funds needed for the project, and I would be so grateful if you could donate as it would help so much to continue my project.
