As a child I thought, the teachers job is very easy. Wear nice saree, sit in the chair, check homework and teach her subject.
As a facilitator I thought I don't even have to teach, even easier job! But becoming facilitator was not easy. It demanded to settle internal struggle. It needed to look into self and question them. Sharing some of the insights from my one of the week I lived...

Often asked what if a child does not know what he/ she likes?
Here is a small story
After couple of weeks spent at the campus, one child with tears and anger expressed "I don't know what I want to learn".
Conversation was full of " I can't do this because...I know I am not good at this....I can never do this for sure...."
Ah! I was crying inside!
Well, we began with few random things the child could do

Where does our food comes from?
Where does our resources comes from?
Where does our tools comes from?
We went out into the neighbourhood, seeking information about the market and suppliers - visited bakery, vegetable market hardware shops, utensil market, grocery shop, petrol pump...the visit included knowing about them, knowing the route to those shops, being there, interacting, buying, negotiating, understanding rates and exploring "where does our supplies comes from".

Mindfullness is the themes of the week..a session on Mindfulness to bring awareness about awareness!
One can call it awareness or way of living. Awareness and knowing what are you thinkjng, what are you feeling, what are you doing now! Mind works like a search light...focusing on one thing at a time and keeps shifting it's attention from one thought to another. Mind is constantly selecting and rejecting.. When it selects it automatically rejects (not choosing)... sometimes choosing pleasant sometimes not pleasant.

Some new, Some old, Some big, Some small…it didn’t matter. The life began with exploring autonomy – the power to make decisions!
