Existential Laboratory 15th to 18th May 2014

"When somebody close to you dies….how can we overcome that pain in ourselves and get back to oneself?" asked a participant at the Existential Laboratory (E Lab), held this May in Bangalore.

How do you replace seriousness with playfulness and knowledge with wonderment? The E Lab is an intense four-day program that addresses exactly these types of questions, among many others. Personally designed by Swamiji it uses the principles of Catherisis, Upasana and Meditation, to bring about an attitude of 'sacredness' in all aspects of one’s 'being'. It works to connect you to nature, moving you away from the trivialities of individual limitations and enabling you to experience the richness and abundance of your own inner experiences.

The program held between the 15th to the 18th of May at the Ecumenical Christian Centre in Whitefield was attended by close to 70 participants, all keen to experience a unique freedom in relationships and effectiveness in the arena of life.

Sessions during the program included processes connecting with nature, Dharmachakra meditation, interactive question-and-answer periods, among others. The Death Process, for example, was a session that helped participants deal with and overcome loss of loved ones in their lives.

A look into our chapters - Mumbai

Our Mumbai Springs Chapter conducted a series of story-telling sessions for close to 10 children throughout the month of May. Each Sunday, they would gather together to discuss value-based stories from Swamiji's book 'Oh, Young Ones! Learn, Roar & Excel' – A Handbook of Creative Growth for Children and Parents – Vol 1.

The book teaches children how to inculcate good principles and values into their lives.

One story, for example spoke of how Buddha ignored a jealous person abusing him and why. "If we ignore the person a number of times, he himself will realize his mistake and change for the good. If we retaliate, then he will feel important and continue hurting us,"says one child who attended the sessions.

Children also explored other topics such as what 'name and fame' really means, how team work is important and other relevant questions for ever-day living addressed by Swamiji in his book.
