Registration Open - Workshop Title - Education and Modernity

Don't you think the rat-race of modernity has made us dis-empowered and helpless? Reality and Truth, which we as human beings have natural access to, can provide an anchor. This facilitator-led online course does "Dhyanaakarshan', draws the attention, to the Truth (and not theories or frameworks), of the teaching - learning process and the modern education system to put the power back in our hands.

This is NOT a training program that will address the 'HOW'. Through videos, reading material, introspective writing and group discussions, this 4-week online course focuses on the 'WHAT' and the 'WHY' and encourages participants to reflect within to seek personal solutions.
