A 3-day workshop “Science of Living: Towards Life Beautiful” was recently concluded on 29th to 31st of May 2014 which aimed individuals and families including children to explore one’s true purpose of life and find beauty, peace and harmony in one’s daily life through a deeper understanding of oneself and the various aspects of one’s life.
Through interactive sessions held for adults, facilitators (Saikat Sen and Rupa Saha) presented the subtle elements of life and true meaning of different aspects of life like health, career, money, relationship etc.. Through insightful discussions and self-observations, the participants sought deeper definitions of these essential components and reflected on the true purpose of 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 (facilitated by Sushanto, Surabhi, Rathi) involving imagination, creativity, memory, observation, concentration, and physical skills of control, agility and balance and also exploring and befriending nature.
The workshop progressed weaving the separate sessions for adults and children with the combined sessions of 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.
