Workshop on Ancient Indian Wisdom: Values for Living the Vision of Oneness


A two-day workshop on this topic will be held by Neema Majmudar and Surya Tahora between 30 November‐1 December 2013 at the Indus restaurant, Bangkok.


Today’s world is fraught with challenges in multiple areas of life. The success of any individual depends upon the skill with which one is able to navigate one’s life in an increasingly complex world. The Vedic vision unfolds some profound realities understanding which we can fundamentally shift to a more meaningful and universal paradigm. This shift is also an answer to our incessant search for success and fulfillment that cannot be achieved merely by modifying our existing ways.

When a person is alive to greater spheres of realities, ones short and long term goals, relating to people, decisions and actions can undergo a major change. This shift in vision enables individuals to operate from a broader perspective, gain contentment and contribute to betterment of society.

Special Features

The workshop includes morning and afternoon sessions delivered in 4 modules. The sessions are interactive, engaging participants in group discussions and presentations. Case studies drawn from personal and work situations, role plays and videos are utilized. Practices of breathing, traditional meditation and meditative movements are also included.
