The 23rd Sumedha Sadhana – Psychospritual Wholeness Journey - begun on July 4 is half way through.
During this period participants journeyed through three different modules – Psychological Dynamics on the Spiritual Journey, Trauma and Healing, and Befriending Our Emotions.
Jose Parappully, the Programme Director, facilitated the “Psychological Dynamics on the Spiritual Journey” – the three–week Foundational module.
Parappully helped participants experientially re-live their developmental experiences following Erik Erikson’s developmental scheme and connect these to their current personality features and relational style.
Following this Parappully explored with the participants their Midlife Journey. He explained the significant Dynamics of Midlife and the Transformational Processes and helped them journey into their past to reconcile with unresolved issues and journey into the future to plan how they want to live out the rest of their lives.
Agnes Panikulam facilitated the “Trauma and Healing” module. Through many real life examples Panikulam presented the nature and consequences of emotional trauma and provided the participants various exercises in self-healing.
Maria Goretti Kanakrathinam facilitated the “Befriending Our Emotions” module. Kanakarathinam presented the meaning of emotions and emotional maturity and helped participants explore and understand some of their major positive, negative, hidden and dominant emotions through research-based data presentation and to process them through art, music, imagery, role play and experiential group exercises. They were introduced to various healing and relaxation techniques.
Celebrations and outings were also part of the Journey Together at Sumedha Centre.
The next Sumedha Sadhana is scheduled for September 29 – November 30, 2014. A few seats are still available. For more information and registration, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
