In this episode, Naomi Richman interviews Matthew Martin, a DPhil student at of Oxford whose work focuses on Hindu traditions. They discuss the great variety of Hindu approaches to healing, from ayuverda to yoga and deliverance from evil spirits.
This series explores different religious and secular approaches to healing. In each episode, DPhil candidate Naomi Richman interviews a representative from a religious or secular movement to find out how their perspectives influence their attitudes to health and modern medicine. Through these conversations, we reveal what ancient truths can assist us in our contemporary search for well-being, from ayuverda to transhumanism.
