• Power of Inspiration

    An Auroville Experience


This three-day workshop is for those who are seeking a fundamental change in their lives. It provides the energy and models for change through interactions with inspiring people doing inspiring work, through presentations of how change takes place, and through exercises that encourage deep reflection and new ways of perception and behaviour. 

By the end of the course, participants should have confidence in their ability to initiate important changes in their lives and have a clearer sense of what those changes could be and how they can happen. 

Slide 1

You will meet people in the international community of Auroville who, inspired by an ideal, are making a difference in society.
 
You will gain an insight into their work, and through that, into some of the activities engaged by the larger community. You will hear the stories of what inspired these individuals to take up this work and make changes in their own lives. You will learn how inner change is manifested in outer action and how this, in turn, fuels further inner evolution.
 
Hands on exercises will help you identify your present patterns of behaviour and core values, identify blockages to change, and map out ways in which change at your individual level can take place.
Slide 1

We live in a world of constant change. At one level, this requires us to learn the skills of adaptation but, at a deeper, personal level, we are also challenged to question our fundamental beliefs and perspectives upon the world. This can be deeply unsettling as it involves risks associated with stepping out of our comfort zone and into the unknown. However, the discovery of new perspectives and core values can provide an indispensable compass for charting our way in an ever-changing world.

This will be facilitated by Alan, Leena and Sheba from Auroville.

He is part of a team that has been offering workshops on the theme of “Towards a Sustainable Future” for many years and is interested in transformative processes, both at the individual level, and in the context of groups. Leena has established linkages with industry and civil society for education and social development projects. Sheba is a facilitator, executive coach, and trainer with several years of experience in facilitating leadership development across sectors including the corporate, education, health, and services.
