Karishma Hansen

We were allowed to sit out, everyone was always participating. I knew the answer to others' problems and didn’t realise the magnitude of it (Cop in the Head)

Activities put a smile on my face, simple yet so revealing. Being aware of my own internal conversation, made me see things in a different way.

I liked the exercises, creating plays, discussions. Glass cobra showed power of trusting others more than yourself.

I enjoyed the exercises, energy, variety.Was speechless. Let go and experience life freely as I choose to be.
Bhairavi Ponappa

The exercises helped to deal with certain problems, non-compulsion to speak in the workshop, forum theatre. The glass cobra was a good experiece. Suggestion- TO is to help people  who find it difficult to communicate in groups because of the different backgrounds, caste, or even race.
