A 3-day workshop—Science of Living: Towards Life Beautiful—organized from 29 to 31 May 2014 was recently concluded successfully. The uniqueness of this workshop was that it involved individuals and families (including children) as participants to explore their true purpose of life and find beauty, peace and harmony in their daily lives through a deeper understanding of themselves and the various aspects of human existence.
Through interactive sessions held for adults, the facilitators presented subtle elements and deeper meaning of different aspects of life such as health, career, money, relationships, etc. Through insightful discussions and self-observations, the participants sought deeper definitions of these essential components and reflected on the genuine impact of these aspects on life.
While adults were engaged in their search for life’s true purpose, children aged between 6 to 16 years were engrossed in exciting experiential activities, involving imagination, creativity, memory, observation, concentration, and physical skills of control, agility and balance and also exploring and befriending the Nature.
The workshop progressed, weaving the separate sessions for adults and children with the combined sessions of families bonding. Adults and children revivified and connected to each other through outbound activities at Sri Aurobindo Society’s natural farm ‘Matrikunj’.
On the final day, children thrilled the parents with a presentation of their creative works. It was a fitting culmination to the 3 days of the experiential journey that unraveled many opportunities to make life beautiful.
