Both sessions were worthwhile and fascinating. I learned more about critical thinking over the course of two days, and I want to thank Bhargavi ma’am and Bhumit sir for their contributions to knowledge-sharing.I also found the sessions interesting while learning about the importance of critical thinking in life with real examples.We also engaged in group activities.Using examples, we also learned about systems 1 and 2..I particularly liked how our facilitators pushed everyone to participate in the deep discussions that took place over the course of these two days.We watched the film ¨Oppenheimer¨, and after that We had an in depth discussion on how we could relate the movie to other
The two days session was really well thought and designed perfectly by the facilitators Abheek sir and Urvashi ma’am. The topics taken were on current problems and interesting. Kudos! to the facilitators for planning such an interactive session.
This life class helped me to realise the importance of active listening. Rather than merely waiting for my turn to speak, I now engage in active listening, focusing on understanding the speaker’s perspective fully. This shift has helped me identify any potential biases or assumptions that might influence my response. By acknowledging these biases, I can respond more thoughtfully and present my ideas in a manner that is both respectful and persuasive. Also on day 2 experiencing dramatic experience by Christopher Nolan was super fun!
Firstly a big thanks to my facilitators Ravindra Sir and Vaishali Ma’am for giving us insights of the book, for their personal sharing, and of course the live guitar show for energizing us. These 2 days truly being informative and valuable as we learn how adapting these habits can make our life effective.
From drafting our perfect life to discussing the hurdles of it, from primary greatness to paradigm shift, from being proactive to discussing our circle of concern and influence, from making our personal vision mission statement to identifying our center we had it all, my understanding on all of these things got better by listening to my fellow colleagues experiences.
My Favourite from all of these is Identifying our rocks, pebbles, and sand and prioritization matrix. The matrix is going to help me balance my personal and professional life.
Lastly Thank you to Fountainhead School for giving us all the opportunity to learn and develop professionally.
In the life class, I’ve gained profound insights. People often create paradigm based on one’s past. My work priorities will be: spending time with family, pursuing my passion, then finding a job, going on trips, and limiting social media. Realizing life’s brevity, I’ll greet, help, and apologize to others. I learned to focus on my actions, not others, and to make my own choices. Grateful to Sufiyan sir and Jyoti ma’am for their guidance, they’ve taught me invaluable life lessons. Thank you, everyone, for sharing your thoughts and stories. These teachings have enlightened me, shaping a brighter path ahead.

Great learning, great resources shared. There’s a shift in perspective. Both days were mind opening. Will definitely read the book Thinking Fast and Slow, having kept in my reading list for a while now. Like the body needs rest for rejuvenation, the brain needs Life Classes to think clearly.
Oppenheimer was good too, thankyou for the experience and for thinking and planning so meticulously. I will definitely be more mindful, analyze every piece of information and then form my opinion / perspective. Also, Critically Thinking ≠ Being Critical.
Thankyou Bhargavi Ma’am, Bhumit Sir and all the Life Class Participants.
We had a two amazing sessions on Day 1 & 2 which were conducted by Ravi sir and Vaishali Ma’am. In the two day we had a group discussions and a lot of sharing about our thoughts and problems that are going in our daily lives and how these habits can help us to tackle those problems. The sessions were very Interactive and had a lot of fun while interacting with everyone. I learned a lot by listening to the problems of Ravi Sir as well as others. We all should focus on our circle of influence not on circle of concern. Thank you so much for the amazing session.
The two days of life classes were incredibly engaging. Many of the questions that were asked prompted participants to rethink and think critically. We agreed to disagree at the time of setting essential agreements. Looking forward to more such activities and interactions.
