The habitual tendency of a leader today is to rely more on externals like technology, management techniques, and consultants. Most of the modern management thinking on leadership is about this outer governance or “organizational transformation”. But as the Indian thought repeatedly emphasized self-government, Swarajya is the foundation for governing the outer world, Samrajya. As a result, much of the hidden human potentialities in the intuitive, moral, aesthetic and spiritual realms, which can lead to a higher quality of life as well as a better bottom-line, remain untapped in the corporate world. The main objective of the workshop was to consciously activate these hidden potentialities of consciousness and manifest them in every activity of corporate life.

SAFIM conducted an experiential workshop on Swarat-Samrat” at Society House, Sri Aurobindo Society on 22nd January 2018 for a group of corporate leaders from  UK, Iceland, Switzerland on a discerning tour of Pondicherry, India.


The program was very unique way of self-awareness training and felt very comfortable in the group discussion. I found most interesting of the program as follows:

  1. It opened my mind to a new way of thinking.
  2. The program helped me to make a connection between nature and self.
  3. Discussing the four rooms within oneself.

The program was excellent. Really eye opening, made me have to look inward, think about things that I normally don’t think about, reflect on myself, my feelings and thoughts and actions. I found most interesting of the program is sharing knowledge and experience with the leader and participants.
