Dharana Approach

“There is an inherent need for a racing mind to feel steadiness and a quiet strength that holds it together for an overall peace of mind. Dharana refers to the 6th stage of Patanjali yoga sutra – a Yogic path, which entails forgetting oneself in the object of his or her meditation. It is a state of feeling relaxed and at ease, which in turn allows for deeper forms of contemplation and meditation. It is the stable sense of sacredness that is achieved when one aligns the inner core to the outer environment. Any form of healing needs to start with the state of Dharana. It is with this grounded focus, that we trigger the longer journey of healing for you.”

Dharana at Hilton Shillim lies at the centre of your exploration towards a deeper dimension of self and sense of balance. The Dharana way of life aims to help you achieve long-term internal and external wellbeing through tailor made programmes. The idea is to help you choose lifestyle options that balance the energies and points to calmness and contentedness.
