Exploring Emotions, Expressions & Transitions
Self-awareness has been highlighted as the most critical aspect of a leader across all times. This also holds true for entrepreneurs and professionals of all kind. “Who am I?”, “How did I become the person that I am?” and “What is the purpose of my life?” are existential questions that human beings ask to make sense of their experiences and choices. Discovering Self series of workshops are aimed at creating opportunities to explore these and other existential questions. These explorations would help participants to be comfortable with themselves, identify blocks that prevent one from achieving one’s full potential, find new ways of expression and start a journey towards a life of fulfilment and meaning. As a consequence, one may also learn new skills and perspectives leading to more effective managing of self and relationships at home and at work. These workshops are fully experiential and facilitators provide a non threatening, non judgemental, safe space for exploring self and others.
Discovering Self – Exploring Emotions, Expressions and Transitions
Emotions are anchors that directly and indirectly influence human beings experience, expression and choice making. Emotions have their roots in physiology, life experiences and the socio-cultural context one is born in. Hence they play a critical role in shaping personality, identity, leadership & decision making styles, preferences and biases, psychological blocks, dreams and aspirations as well as repeating patterns in these. Simply increasing the breath, depth and nuanced experience of emotions and expressions can create more possibilities in a. awareness of multiplicity and simultaneity of self, b. overcoming blocks and repeated patterns, c. new ways of perceiving reality, d. facing difficult situations, and e. new ways of expression, relating and choice making. This would also be the first step to a holistic, integrated view of life.
The workshop is totally experiential and there would be many theatre and art based sessions, helping participants to have fun, learn and integrate learning with ease. Working with body is an essential part of this program.
