PSL 1 / UHV 111 Workshop

This 8-day residential workshop is an intensive learning experience that seeks to bring one's attention to neglected and subtle facets of life; issues related to interpersonal relations, education, society, environment, aspirations, success are discussed and participants are provided critical tools to help them explore the rich web of connections between seemingly disparate aspects of life. It is a process of guided introspection, of 'doing philosophy' rather than studying it. There is no sermonizing; the facilitator presents sets of proposals, and helps participants bring their attention to bear on the inner workings of their thoughts, fears and aspirations. Gradually one begins to interrogate hidden assumptions and get a sharper, clearer view of the whole intricate fabric of life; one begins to see new possibilities for positive human action. The idea is to trigger an empowering, self-critical inner dialogue that begins with the workshop, but doesn't end with it.

      All of us strive to achieve the goals set by us and we expect that the achievement of the goal will make our life happier. But every time, our pursuit is shaped by a particular belief system, either borrowed from others or designed by us!

This workshop on Human Values

  • Provides an opportunity to question your own beliefs and explore the human life in a holistic perspective.
  • Helps you understand yourself and your relation with the family, society, nature and the whole existence.
  • Creates an awareness of the innate human values, which are intact and invariant in all of us.
  • It does not prescribe any DOs and DONTs; but it gives you the opportunity to self-explore, and validate or replace your assumptions.

For faculties

The workshop is a starting point in preparing teachers who have a responsibility to teach this human values as a subject in their institutions and also called as Faculty Development Program (FDP). Once they go through a FDP, they refine their personal perspective on value education, on education, and on teaching. They are equipped to share the content effectively. There is ample scope for advanced study in this area. The validation of advancement is directly visible in living, rather than in 'academic' achievement alone.

      This workshop/FDP is designed to essentially start a process of self-exploration and facilitate going through the key proposals in this course. The process of self-exploration is the critical part, and this usually gets focused only when one participates actively in a TOP.

For individuals & young ones

This workshop will enable you to make prudent choices in life and profession to ensure the continuity of happiness. It's the prime time of your life to reason out, investigate and build a vision of your life, before you start investing your time and energies into actualizing your plans.

      Apart from these the workshop is also a platform for discussing a wide range of issues like Education, Reality, Happiness, Success, Aspirations and gaining an understanding on our Nature, Relationships, Environment, Social Issues, and Self-Confidence.
