Quarantine Your Distractions with Dharana - The Power of Concentration

Are you yearning to stay calm, relaxed and think with clarity during stressful situations? Concentration is the key to unlock your potential.
Gather the strings of your consciousness to get more time in a day to accomplish more. Use the power of Sangha to practice techniques to stay focused.


A 4 Week Online Practice Lab to Improve Your Focus and Concentration

During this course, you will follow the technique of Traatak a traditional practice, to develop your concentration. In this practice, first, you will fix your concentration on a flame and then as you progress you will concentrate on the inner flame. Then, you will gradually focus on the inner flame while engaged in activities followed by concentration in every activity that you do.
Every Monday, we will have a guest session with Manoj Pavithran & we'll progressively build on the practice for the rest of the week. With more & more practice, you could literally do in 10 mins what would otherwise take an hour, being efficient in all that you do.

  • Dhivya Anand, Your Facilitator for "Dharana Practice Lab"

    HR Professional and Sadhak of Integral Yoga

    I am a Human Resource professional working for a US based consulting firm & mother of 2 teenage boys. I am passionate about making new friends, sharing ideas and building strong relationships. I always look for opportunities to help people & consider them as a gift from the divine to progress.

    Amidst the myriad of responsibilities I sometimes find it very challenging to focus and also feel that I don’t have enough time leading to multitasking without achieving tangible outcomes.

    While I understand that a lot can be accomplished through focus unless one practices it consciously, it might be difficult to manifest. If you feel that you too have problems just like I do, then the key solution is to increase the power of concentration through consistent practice.

    In this practice lab, you will be practicing & sharing your experience with like-minded seekers enabling you to stay with the practice and draw energy from the power of community. You can succeed in doing things even better and more quickly by the power of concentration & power of the group.



Without concentration one cannot achieve anything. - The Mother 
Concentration means gathering of all the scattered movements of consciousness into a single point, place, object, thought, idea, condition, state or movement

 The Mother
Spiritual Collaborator of Sri Aurobindo
One may gather together one portion of one's being or consciousness or one may gather together the whole of one's consciousness or even fragments of it, that is, the concentration may be partial, total or integral, and in each case the result will be different.

The Mother
Spiritual Collaborator of Sri Aurobindo

Frequently Asked Questions

Concentration lab is a series of daily practice sessions, the more one practices the more one becomes better at concentration. It’s an active course with a “high” outcome at the end of it. Missing out on live sessions will not create the impact or the shift you are looking for in your life.
The idea is to start early & begin your day with this practice for 15 mins and keep aside another 15 mins towards sharing and gaining from the community. So, 30 mins a day would be the time commitment. Every Monday we will have a guest session with Manoj Pavithran which will extend from 6:30 AM -7:00 AM & hence you can plan accordingly for the Monday sessions.
All practice sessions are online and can be taken from anywhere. Ensure you are in a quiet place with a good internet connection. Timings for all sessions are at the beginning of the day such that it would not clash with any major plans of your day. Plan your day accordingly and remember, the objective of this course is to help you do more with less so there is no better time to start practicing. 
If you sincerely participate in all the daily practice sessions and sharing circles, you will gain the most out of the course.
Yes, before 20th Dec, 2021 you will be the pre-oriented into this practice lab through a WhatsApp group that we will be creating for all participants & through that we will brief you on the 4 week journey.
