Movement and Meditation workshop by Kalpana.

This session is all about finding the stillness from within through movement. We begin by moving around the space, exploring ourselves, seeing what emerges from this experience. Slowly we shall settle into some moments of stillness where we go deep within the self.

This is for those interested in exploring within and finding answers.

Benefits are multi-fold as meditation can be for anger management, relaxation, goal orientation, spiritual enhancement and many more. Explore and identify how to meditate.

Note: Please wear loose fitting clothes for ease of movement. On 14th December, 12-1 pm. Venue: Pause for Perspective, Begumpet.

At Pause for Perspective, Begumpet

In Srinidhi’s words:

“My introduction to disability literature as part of my healing journey changed my relationship with well-being and perfection.

I began to see healing and wellbeing as a journey rather than a destination where wellness was attained and illness discarded. Two books I found that had a huge impact on me were Brilliant Imperfections by Eli Clare and Care Work by Leah Lakshmi Peipzna-Samarasinha. These books challenge two core ideas at the centre of the disability movement – one of cure and perfection and the other of who deserves care and when.

I noticed that both Leah and Eli nudged me to change my language to encompassing experiences outside of the norm. They question the need for us to say “take care” or even “speedy recovery”. Honestly, I have no idea what speedy or recovery looks like for me with chronic pain and fatigue. Their words made me ask: What does care look like when a person has been ill for a long time – say five to ten years? Or has a deteriorating illness? How do we reimagine care and well-being when one doesn’t fit society’s idea of normal or well?”

Join us at Mindfulness Gathering on 14th December,2019 to understand how wellness has been defined thus far and what finally needs to be changing.

More workshops are being added. Space is limited for this event so please register soon! Call us on +91 81068 64001 to register.
