The 16th edition of Sumedha Sadhana, Sumedha centre’s highly rated flagship programme, commenced on February 25th evening. It will end on April 25th.

There are 18 participants, the maximum number the Centre is able to accommodate. Of these, 13 are nuns and five priests, both religious and diocesan. Two of the nuns are from Thailand. All the other participants come from various parts of India – from the South to the North-East.

The first two weeks were facilitated by Jose Parappully, a Clinical Psychologist and the Director of the Centre. He explored with the participants the various psychological dynamics, especially those of midlife, that affect spirituality.

Joe Mannath PhD is facilitating the module “Psycho-Sexual and Spiritual Integration” this week. Following week Ajoy Fernandes PhD will explore “Jungian Perspectives and Self-Awareness.”

A change has been made in scheduling this year. Holy Week will be spent in a Spiritual Retreat and the programme will conclude with the Easter celebrations at the Centre.
