Aastha offers short programmes to take a pause, reflect on the pushes and pulls of life and living and get in touch with one’s thinking, feeling and action.
“What shall I Choose?”
All of us are perplexed by this question many a times in our lives. Primarily because making a choice determines the course of our future and colours the experiences of our life - it can be about clothes, food, friends, job, vacation, choice of a partner and much more! It projects our image on to the world and makes a statement about who we are. It grounds us, gives us substantiveness and conveys this to the world.
In this workshop, we examine 'what, when, how and why' of our choice making processes to empower ourselves to choose with awareness so that we can steer the ship of our life in the direction that we desire.
