Ms. Rupa S., Director, Sri Aurobindo Foundation for Integral Management, was invited to conduct a workshop on ‘Managing Stress through Inner Poise’ for CII’s Indian Women Network (IWN), Puducherry, at Integral Software Services on June 29, 2018. The highly interactive session was attended by more than 30 women leaders from the corporate and academic organizations and institutes.
The session started with participants deliberating on their own experiences of stress. The discussions were then steered towards exploring the underlying reasons of stress. Through deep reflections it was brought to focus how our inner attitude and perspectives are primarily responsible for producing the response of stress in any situation. Relevant case studies were discussed to find out how positive perspectives can entirely change the impact of any so-called stress triggers in our lives.
The session concluded with a guided aspiration of peace, happiness, strength and beauty in everyone’s life.
The response received from the audience was very encouraging with an expression of interest in conducting more such sessions for the IWN members.
“Thank you very much for your interesting session. It was very informative especially in the sense that it brought a totally different perspective on stress - that stress is not something to be managed but to be eliminated.”—Dr. Nalini, President, IWN, Puducherry
