Freedom - Personal Growth Lab Course at IIM, Indore
This module is about Freedom – freedom from the emotions that sometimes tend to overwhelm you, freedom from conditioning as well as the baggage of the past and freedom from those things which block you from being happy. The work focuses on shifting the consciousness. It was an unforgettable and deeply satisfying experience for me to work with 81 young men and watch the flowers of awareness slowly blooming. Sometimes we (including me) want them to bloom faster! I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to offer these programs.
In this visit, I had a room at IIMI with balcony facing the east. I am sharing some pictures of unbelievably gorgeous sun rise I have ever seen. The picture may not have captured its real grandeur, but I hope you get some idea of it.
I started the practice of Pranayama when afflicted by ischemic heart disease in 1987. This was a turning point in my life and led to the path of holistic healing. Healing this 'incurable' disease spurred me on to explore other inner growth practices. For more than two decades, I have been practicing pranayama, deep relaxation, meditation and other techniques with remarkable benefits. I quit my job and started living in Auroville to explore alternate modes of living. Facilitating Personal Growth programs is very interesting to me and more than a thousand people participated in my workshops/retreats.
I studied in AU College of Engineering (B.E) and IIT, Kharagpur (M.Tech). I served in the Indian Navy from 1970 to 1991 and received the Visisht Seva Medal from the President of India. Prior to joining Auroville, I worked for 16 years in top R&D management positions such as the Director of R&D of D-Link India, JCPE of CRISP/IISc, Vice President(Software) of Cirrus Logic India and General Manager (R&D) of BPL Telecom Ltd.
I was a Seminar Leader in Landmark Education from 2000 to 2003.
