Life Classes- A gift to be passed on!

Hello all,

Well, being honest I was just thinking 2 days back to make my page and begin with writing as many friends had inspired me to begin so thought to begin from October and guess I read the mail by Vardan sir that post about the learnings on the blog! Telepathy must say 🙂

To begin with I am transformed- the core reason is Life classes but for me it took time to actually apply and understand the core context of the workshop.

I had been poor in decision making (which I had overcome) now. Still, not perfect but ya, I am growing and much better.

Reason: Love workshop especially has given me better understanding and had answered many of the unanswered questions in my life. Due to these Life classes I developed an interest in understanding and helping the people in a better way for good (not judging them)- why are they angry, frustrated, how can I help them, do they need help, their pain areas, their fear- if nothing I can do I listen carefully.

Connection in my life: My mother undergone change (very much interpreted by me) as my brother got married and time got divided (acceptance of change was missing). She felt at times low which was in action by getting irritated (without any reason), getting angry, isolating herself at times by not communicating with anyone, mood swings, etc. After observing and analyzing (it went on for a month approx), communication and listening was done by us- she demonstrated her anger (which I expected). At least she expressed her emotions. So, then questioning with her permission was done (to understand in a better way the problem). After that we analysed and understood- She needs our TIME which money can’t buy! According to us we were giving time but somewhere rescheduling was required. After doing that surprisingly she changed and now with a better approach. It gave us immense pleasure to understand her feeling which she expressed in a different manner as she was expecting us to understand on our own.

Well, due to Life classes I applied the principles and made my family members to follow the principles which they agreed as it was the apt approach. It boosted my confidence and helped my mom especially to not to go into isolation.

Depression phase had come for all of us (with respect to mom’s action), analysing what hurts her (as she is sensitive) but now there is improvement- the most important element- She is very happy, not dependent but interdependent, she exercise- goes for a walk/runs- alone or with my dad, exercise at home (strength training), yoga (basics). Finally, she took a step forward to utilise her time and she is happy for it!

What I learnt?- Active listening by not judging, being empathetic, understanding gives way to solve the problem as Problems are a part of life and inevitable.

Many more instances to share- probably in my next blog will do so!

Thank you Fountainhead School!

New workshop, New Learning

I am a veteran participant of  workshops at Fountainhead school.

Beginning with the 7 Habits, Love, Integrity and now the  Book and Movie club. Each workshop layering the other  with its unique principles and followed by self-reflections.

Looking back at the recent sessions of book and movie club, I think it has been a wonderful journey  of looking at ” principles learnt ” in our previous workshops at work in the human relationships portrayed in various books that we discussed and the movies that we watched together.

Today’s session was  exemplary in terms of learning something new and challenging- “Making of a comic strip” after identifying the various elements of a comic strip and then putting it into  practice  and actually making a comic strip 🙂

I thoroughly enjoyed learning and working with all the club members – very well guided and supported by Neha and fantastically complimented by our group members – Shehla, Ritu, Evelyn and Himani who created the comic strip- Cinderella, The True Story. Their creativity, drawings and ideas beautifully interwoven with their commitment towards the challenge of creating a cartoon strip.

Thank you for such a wonderful time.

Another workshop , another new learning👍

2 days of clubbing!!

Day 1:

Our day started with discussing about what interesting books we had read and films we had seen over the past few months.

Next we watched the movie,’My fair lady’, based on the play “Pygmalion’, by George Bernand Shaw.It was difficult for us to watch the movie as the language used was difficult to comprehend.

The reflection of the movie had some wonderful insights related to clothes and to what extent do they still ‘make a man’? Should it matter how a person speaks? Does money equal class?

Day 2:

We understood the elements of comic strip and read a few comics to explore those comics further.

Next we had an exciting time creating our own comic strips, focussing on all the elements!!!

Overall 2 days spent well…learning, creating, laughing, enjoying…..

Sharing a few glimpses here:

Welcome to Health And Fitness Club

A very warm Welcome to the blog of Health & Fitness Club@FS

“Health” and “Fitness” what comes in our mind when we hear these two words? Exercise, diet, doctor etc etc etc. We take care of our work, our family, our relations but how much we really care about our body? The body in which we live, the body who support us in every situation, but we just take it for granted! Don’t you think we should really take care of it?

We appreciate our staff members who promptly participated in Health Check Up and expect others to do so.

Let’s start with this – What’s the difference between being “HEALTHY” and “FIT”.

Healthy means being free from illness or disease, and not suffering from any impairment or pain.

Fitness – the quality of being suitable to perform a particular task. The state or condition of being physically sound and healthy, especially as the result of exercise and proper nutrition.

It’s rather vague, but being healthy does not necessarily mean that you are fit.

An appropriate work out / exercise plan improves our fitness.

Thanks, Regards & Again A Warm Welcome,
Health & Fitness Club

Accepting Myself!

After todays sharing (biggest pain area and problem) I feel the complexities of thoughts within me. I realised that few things that are in my control needs attention now! I am so thankful to my facilitators as well as group members for questioning me and helping me to reach upto some idea of my prime thought (its huge victory for me!) Till now I was just running away (or taking short term measures – pointed out very well by Shalini) from issues.

Well now things seem complicated as i need to put in much efforts but the best part is I know where to put efforts. But all this will happen only once I ACCEPT MYSELF!

Thanks a lot to every person involved in this process.

Also I read this in Vardan sir’s post which I completely agree now! —- “At the end of the workshop sessions, I almost seem to be in a daze. There is a feeling of tremendous “love”, feel-good and well-being in the air, which I know that all of us have experienced.”

Thanks! 🙂
