Inner Healing Retreat
This workshop happened because Shri Kameswara Raju from Sri Aurobindo Ashram took a lot of interest. This is three day retreat and we had a small but very interested group of participants. And, what a group! Two Ashramites, three senior Aurovilians who have are serous Sadhaks and practitioners of Integral Yoga, two highly motivated New Comers, a guest who was in search of healing and gentleman from Pondy. I felt a tinge of apprehension to facilitate the retreat for such a great gathering. As we began with pranayama session, it was helpful for me to get into a self-assured frame.
The sessions on healing went very well and what a retreat it turned out to be! At the end of the retreat, the participants shared the impact and benefits and I was amazed and blown over by the results.
I am truly blessed and harpy and grateful for the opportunity.
I must do these long format event more often as they are more beneficial to the participants as well as for me.
What could be more satisfying and fulfilling than be the instrument for people to discover that their inner and natural healing powers!
I started the practice of Pranayama when afflicted by ischemic heart disease in 1987. This was a turning point in my life and led to the path of holistic healing. Healing this 'incurable' disease spurred me on to explore other inner growth practices. For more than two decades, I have been practicing pranayama, deep relaxation, meditation and other techniques with remarkable benefits. I quit my job and started living in Auroville to explore alternate modes of living. Facilitating Personal Growth programs is very interesting to me and more than a thousand people participated in my workshops/retreats.
I studied in AU College of Engineering (B.E) and IIT, Kharagpur (M.Tech). I served in the Indian Navy from 1970 to 1991 and received the Visisht Seva Medal from the President of India. Prior to joining Auroville, I worked for 16 years in top R&D management positions such as the Director of R&D of D-Link India, JCPE of CRISP/IISc, Vice President(Software) of Cirrus Logic India and General Manager (R&D) of BPL Telecom Ltd.
I was a Seminar Leader in Landmark Education from 2000 to 2003.
