Swaraj Wisdom days
Hosted by Swaraj University
Udaipur, 22 October – 23 October
Imagine spending a day with your favourite Wisdom Heroes, exchanging stories, discussing questions on social change, relationships and the meaning of life! Imagine those heroes sharing intimate episodes from their life journeys! Imagine them sharing their dreams and dilemmas about how they want the world to be! Imagine sharing with them your ideas and dreams and getting their feedback and support.
The idea behind the Wisdom days is to create a space to engage in intimate, free flowing dialogues with our elders and heroes. Usually we only get to interact with these people in busy conferences or listen to them on Youtube, but in this retreat, we envision having a lot of time and space to get to know the hero as a real person. We will also enjoy periods of quiet reflection, cooking together, and some fun surprises. So, bring your stories, dreams and dilemmas to share.
We have invited Satish Kumar to enhance our understanding of soil, soul and Society.
A former monk and long-term peace and environment activist, Satish has been quietly setting the Global Agenda for change for over 50 years. He was just nine when he left his family home to join the wandering Jains and 18 when he decided he could achieve more back in the world, campaigning for land reform in India and working to turn Gandhi’s vision of a renewed and a peaceful world into reality.
More details of his work can be found on http://www.resurgence.org/
This event is offered to you in the spirit of gift culture. Like many spaces across India and around the world, Swaraj University and the Swapathgami Network have been experimenting and working with rethinking our lifestyles and our relationship with ourselves, our work, our resources and our communities. We are questioning, challenging and experimenting with our institutionalized notions of money. So we welcome you to join our experiment and explore your relationship with money and community.
Participants are invited to contribute what they can (towards the cost of organizing the workshop which is approximately Rs. 2,000 per person for food and stay); learning scholarships are available to those who need them. And if you can, your additional contribution will help support the participation of others. No one will be refused due to any money constraints.
We are proud to share that the Swapathgami Network does not take any funding, but rather is financed by its own members. For more info on the Swapathgami network, check out: www.swaraj.org/
