About the Organisation
Sahaj Foundation aims to facilitate individuals in rural communities to live in harmony with their hearts to lead a peaceful and meaningful life. The idea is to work on creating a space that will help people come over the mental poverty that exists today on a vast scale.
About the Program
Sahaj Foundation is coming up with a month-long online meditation-cum-study program titled ‘Cultivating Emotional Balance’ to build Awareness and Right Understanding of the Mind in the ongoing turbulent times.
This program, to be led by Ms Divya Gupta, is a suitable fit for the ones who wish to understand how our mind functions at the face of disturbing daily-life emotions, and how we can transform these emotions so as to live joyful, relaxed and harmonious lives!
Eligibility: Working Professionals
The Medium of Instruction: English
Online Platform: Zoom
Date: December 28, 2020, onwards
A total of 26 one-hour-long sessions shall be offered from Monday to Saturday. The timing of the sessions shall be from 08:00 – 09:00 AM.
How the Program Works
The program is a series of meditation-cum-contemplation sessions for working professionals. These sessions are very carefully designed by Divya Gupta, who lives in the Himalayas and practices under the guidance of Buddhist masters, so as to prepare the willing ones to not only become aware of their emotions but also learn to transform them in their professional and personal lives.
This series of month-long sessions come with a unique blend of wisdom and compassion-based teachings so as to enable the participants to develop a clear, aware, concentrated, contemplative, joyful and a balanced mind. Each one hour-long session shall consist of 20 minutes of Shamatha (single-pointed) meditation, 15-20 minutes of talk on the topic for the day or analytical meditation, and 15-20 minutes of Q and A.
The sessions include topics such as mundane happiness vs genuine happiness, attachment vs. love, anger vs. depression, the reality that we perceive vs. reality the way it is, what we know vs. what we do, fears, cultivating awareness, self-compassion, Judging oneself vs judging others- how it’s far from the truth, and many more that have significant importance to cultivate emotional stability and balance even at the face of most challenging circumstances that life can throw at us.
The suggested range of contribution is Rs 7,800-13,000. The participants are encouraged to contribute as per their heart and financial situation. The ones who are capable of contributing on higher side are encouraged to do so, as we also wish to accommodate a few individuals who are not in a position to contribute financially.
The charges shall cover facilitation for the whole month that would include 26 sessions and any personal one-on-one guidance given on need basis.
