This workshop happened because Shri Kameswara Raju from Sri Aurobindo Ashram took a lot of interest. This is three day retreat and we had a small but very interested group of participants. And, what a group! Two Ashramites, three senior Aurovilians who have are serous Sadhaks and practitioners of Integral Yoga, two highly motivated New Comers, a guest who was in search of healing and gentleman from Pondy. I felt a tinge of apprehension to facilitate the retreat for such a great gathering. As we began with pranayama session, it was helpful for me to get into a self-assured frame.
The sessions on healing went very well and what a retreat it turned out to be! At the end of the retreat, the participants shared the impact and benefits and I was amazed and blown over by the results. I am truly blessed and harpy and grateful for the opportunity. I must do these long format event more often as they are more beneficial to the participants as well as for me.
What could be more satisfying and fulfilling than be the instrument for people to discover that their inner and natural healing powers!
The two workshops I do at IIMI have become a regular feature in my work. I have been able to fine tune the workshops with teh iterations and I am quite satisfied with bot the workshops this term. I added a talk on the dimensions of health - fitness, wellness and robustness. It is quite interesting to see how the Good Heath excesses improve health in all these dimensions, provide they are done regularly. That is once a day as we live in the solar system. Being in sync with the solar cycle is the important thing.
I also added talk on another three dimensions - Health(HQ), Emotions(EQ) and Intelligence(IQ) as part of the Stress Management Workshop and showed how what we do in this workshops helps one in all these three dimensions. We tried a group work experiment. The group work is to read a short article and produce a result - a specific measurable one . This went well and I am fulfilled as the objective has been met. How to actually produce results rather than comment on the article. This could be long lever in personal growth.
I am more than satisfied with the reflection essays and the value that the participants created in their life. I am truly blessed to share these tools and techniques with these young students - future leaders of India,
