A Discussion with Sangeeta Sahi

New Books Network 2022

In this episode we meet Dr. Sangeeta Sahi, who during her medical training found that “scientifically unexplainable healing instances” lead her to formulate a framework called Integrative Medicine. Sangeeta shares how she arrived at the intersection of modern medicine and Sri Aurobindo’s Integral Yoga to formulate alternative and holistic healing modalities. We start our discussion with a reading from Sri Aurobindo about idea of the evolutionary soul, called the psychic being, and discuss its central role in personality development, and its integral importance in the cultivation of holistic health. We discuss how one can experience Divine attributes and cosmic archetypes through cultivating yogic equanimity, and the possibilities of cultivating an intuitive knowing, as knowledge by identity, through bringing the psychic being forward in the heart center. We discuss holistic health in relation to the Buddha’s 4 noble truths, as well as how to integrally approaches other problems of our times, such as technology and the climate change crisis. The podcast concludes with Sangeeta speaking about the foundations and goals of her most recent project, the Unified Human Foundation.
