The Dharana Approach

There is an inherent need for a racing mind to feel steadiness and a quiet strength that holds it together for overall peace of mind. Dharana, as outlined in the 6th stage of the Patanjali Yoga Sutra, a yogic path, pertains to the act of immersing oneself completely in the object of 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 Shillim lies at the centre of your exploration towards a deeper dimension of self and sense of balance. Thus, a journey into The Dharana Way Of Life aims to help you achieve long-term internal and external well-being through tailor-made programmes. The idea is to help you choose lifestyle options that balance the energies and point to calmness and contentedness.

Preventative Medicine

The most important prerequisite for a successful wellness programme is an in-depth assessment and diagnosis. At Dharana Shillim, the wellness journey begins with a thorough evaluation and diagnostic testing which helps determine your current health status and needs. An expert approach through advanced testing procedures helps to detect aberrations in health at an early stage.

Non-Invasive Testing

Wellness specialists at Dharana Shillim utilize state-of-the-art instruments to conduct Iridiagnosis, Spectrophotometry Analysis, and Body Composition Analysis, thus building a comprehensive physical health profile of your body.

Ayurvedic Analysis

Ayurvedic Philosophy dictates that health anomalies may arise due to imbalances in the body’s humoral factors or Dosha – Vata, Pitta, Kapha. Wellness experts at the retreat understand these nuances via traditional analyses, thus arriving at a curated Dincharya and Ritucharya.

Naturopathy

A traditional medicinal approach, naturopathy emphasizes the body’s intrinsic ability to sustain and restore health. The experts at Dharana Shillim facilitate this healing process by eliminating obstacles and developing natural therapies enhance healing.

Ayurgenomics

Genetic studies and research related to metabolism, lifestyle diseases, physical performance, and nutrition now make it possible to incorporate individual genetic responses into treatment protocols. Experts at Dharana Shillim combine DNA Analyses with Ayurveda to conduct Ayurgenomic analysis – A deeper insight into your body’s nuances.

Exercise Physiology

This approach focuses on assessing your current level of fitness, the condition of your body’s systems, how many calories you burn when you work out, along your body’s unique composition – distribution of fat, lean mass, and bone mass. These studies help personalise a programme to best suit you, thus sustainably maintaining health, wellness, and fitness. Exercise Physiology is also concerned with rehabilitation from heart disease, other chronic and metabolic conditions, and/or disabilities. The experts provide one-to-one motivation and support to help sustain new-found agility, flexibility, and physical perception.

Nutrition and Dietetics

The Dharana Cuisine includes elements achieved by modern food research and lessons learned from nutritional philosophies. Thus, the food philosophy at Dharana Shillim has its firm roots in age-old Ayurveda traditions with menus inspired by fresh, seasonal produce and a slow cooking technique that stresses on preserving the natural flavours of the food.

Conflict Resolution

Focusing on the mind is as important as any physical actions taken. The Dharana Approach actively promotes mental health to help counter the pervasive impacts of a hectic urban life. At Dharana Shillim, experts help create a DiSC® (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness) profile for the individual, discussing it with the in-house therapist to understand and correct your emotional response.

Additional Polysomnography analysis helps study your sleeping patterns, thus, providing insight into psychological and physiological complications.

Spiritual Well-being

To be Spiritually Well is to be connected to something greater than self. It is having a set of values, principles, morals, and beliefs that guide and provide a sense of purpose and meaning to life.
The Dharana philosophy maneuvers around the core Yoga philosophy – “Yogena Chittasya paden Vacha, malam sharirasya cha vaidyakhana” – which means the removal of impurities of the Mind, Body, and spirit by various Yogic practices.

With a heavy emphasis on yoga, pranayama, and meditation, spiritual well-being gives a necessary calm and balance to your physical, mental, and emotional being. The Dharana process also pays attention to the energy and the environment imbibed as these can play a pivotal role in ushering in ‘Consciousness’, resulting in overall cleansing, healing, and correction of the body.
