Workshop Overview & Syllabus.
What we do
In the jeevan vidya workshop (jeevan vidya shivir), several important proposals about Life & the Universe are put forth for participants to examine and reflect and an accomplished facilitator facilitates this over a 1 day, 3 day and a 7 day period. You can also browse through facilitator profiles and the 7 day syllabus
These proposals address serious curiosities in the areas of
- What are we as 'Conscious' Beings
- What is family, human relationships and how they can be fulfilling
- What is wealth and the true meaning of prosperity
- Human Society, its problems & resolutions
- Nature, 'Existence' (the Universe) and man's place in it.
One of the participants described their journey thus:
from haziness to clarity ...
from arrogance to simplicity...
from selfishness to generosity...
from hatred to love...
from illusion to awakening...
How are they conducted?
'Coexistential Thought' is presented as an 'Alternative' to Materialism & Theism/Spiritualism and thus does not take recourse to any existing or past concept, tradition or text. The proposals are meant to be a bridge between the participant and 'Reality'.
There is no sermonizing; the facilitator puts forth the proposals and enables this phenomenon of 'direct perception' of Reality to take place. The proposals are evaluated based on self scrutiny and examination. This takes place via a gradual process of 'consciousness-development'.
Why do we conduct them?
There is no 'fee' for the 'teaching'. We share this for Universal Good. Participants bear their own boarding & lodging costs. No one is denied a place if they are unable to bear the same.
We have been conducting these workshops since the last 25 years. We see that these workshops bring a big positive difference in the lives of participants. For some, it can be life changing. We encourage you to attend one of these workshops.
