Harvesting Values—Adding Worth to Living is the title of an open workshop conducted by Sri Aurobindo Foundation for Integral Management (SAFIM), a unit of Sri Aurobindo Society, on July 18–19, 2014, at Puducherry.
The highly interactive and reflective workshop addressed the challenges in understanding and practicing values in life. The various sessions stressed on the inner cultivation of values to ebb out the conflicts between the outer life and the inner inclination.
The workshop was facilitated using various audiovisual tools, case studies, highly interactive discussions and a reflective questionnaire.
The workshop was attended by a diverse group of participants from across the world. At the end of the two-day workshop the participants had several takeaways in terms of inner strength, mechanisms, tools, new ideas, and new approaches to issues related to values.
Feedback from inspired participants—just as the following—in turn inspired SAFIM to plan for more such workshops in the future.
