Overview

What lies unexpressed or unknown within us, controls and limits us. The workshop aims to help participants explore and express their life’s issues – their sorrows and joys, hopes and fears – through the use of various writing formats/genres. The process of playing with writing forms and content will help participants shed new light on long-standing issues that have become impediments to growth. Participants will grow in self-knowledge as well as empathy with the other. 

All of this will be through the use of creative writing tools, which make for a playful yet extremely meaningful engagement with long-standing issues for most participants. 

Transformation and change, however dramatic or quiet, is always therapeutic and healing, as this workshop will demonstrate. The experiential nature of the workshop is designed to give participants insights into their attitudes and behaviours, and to help them view life issues, and their way of handling them, in new and different ways. 

This 4-day workshop is of therapeutic value for all those who feel caught in a whirlpool of emotions or in an inflexible grid. 

While the workshop will be conducted in English, those more comfortable in Hindi writing and communicating can participate fruitfully too. 

At the end of this workshop, participants will emerge with a new understanding of themselves, their relationships, and some of their blind-spots. They will be able to look closely at what aspects of their own behaviour and relationships they must tend, mend, or end.

    Late to board the train

    This was something completely new for me. I was allowed to open closets I had forgotten about and process the emotions I had not been in touch with.

    Changed my perspective about myself

    Okay so at first I thought what will it be? Kya seekhungi mai iss workshop se..Though I saw Gauri ma’am on YouTube as well and mujhe unka vibe bht positive lga and what really hit me was that she has written books on parenting. I am so grateful to say that I ended up doing the 4 day workshop. It made me learn so much about myself, made me feel okay in being vulnerable and changed my perspective about myself. It was surely an emotionally draining process but it was worth every second of it. Thank you ma’am, sir and the whole team( the participants) who made me feel so comfortable, who gave me space to speak and share about my vulnerabilities. It was really a life changing sort of experience for me. Thank you everyone.

    And a big thankss to all of you for being so kind, encouraging and supportive. I really felt comfortable around each one of you and kl ka session toh was magical. Bht mazaa aaya. Thank youu everyone.
    Gauri ma’am, Azir sir and all of you. We were a great team.

    Interesting approach to self awareness

    What I most enjoyed about this workshop was the blend of writing and emotional health tools. I found myself involved, challenged to think and vulnerable throughout the 4 days. Those who like writing will definitely find this a fun experience though it is not a writing workshop. The mentor is knowledgeable in the field, well read and has a knack of getting the participants to feel comfortable sharing. The workshop does go into deep territory with regards to exploring our fears, anxieties and long held grievances. So I guess it will work only if one is willing to be open. The exercises are well defined and evocative and have potential to become long term habits. I would have preferred to participate in this face to face just because of the intense content but the online format worked well too.

    The best place to be...

    Dear GOD,

    I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making me a part of this program. Thank you for helping Aziz and Ruuta create this beautiful bridge that connects people to their aspirations; and for choosing the right channels and mentors, (Gouri Dange), who pour their hearts into these workshops, to make our lives easier and better.

    “Self-Awareness and Growth through Writing” was a place, crafted beautifully by Aziz, Ruuta, Kabir, Gouri, and all the lovely group of friends that I had been waiting to meet. They made me feel at home. A home called “My ownself”. I could connect with each one of the participants and the tools that Gouri Ma’am shared were like a fresh breeze. The best journey is within, and I have found a way to effectively communicate with myself. And the best part is it’s a two-way highway.

    Lots and lots of love!
    Student for Life,

    Manish
