Participants: Students of the MSc Clinical Psychoogy Course,
1. For me, this was a very empowering experience. I am at present going through a struggle, this made me realize that I should stop just laying back but fight my way through. I even had a very emotional experience while doing one particular activity. I am a very shy person but this was the first time I was not scared and enjoyed the program. I would love to join another such program.
2. I personally enjoyed this workshop. I learnt that I have complete freedom to either obey the authority or to fight against it. I also realized the power of touch.
3. I was actually not planning to come today. Was a wonderful experience and would have mussed such a fun workshop if I hadn't come. I am planning to keep in mind the activities we did today hoping that it would help me some day.
Theatre is cathartic!
Things work out very smoothly and friction free without language. It’s not about power. It’s about the task.
I learnt that I can communicate better without word and with just actions
Having a dependable partner in this big world is like a dream come true!
A ‘we’ is formed with ‘all’ and not ‘I’, it takes time and effort from everyone until they truly become one.
The experience is pretty enriching. It was nice to gel as a group and learn a lot on group dynamics. Although we have been together for 5 months now, I feel our class members got more closer to each other through these activities. Looking forward to many more such workshops.
I learnt to spend some amount of my time in silence closing my eyes and just be calm.
I felt like a workshop on theatre is not going to be of much use…but at the end of it I was able to draw a connection between psychology and theatre. Hard work and a bit of thinking can break open any lock is what I learnt.But the glass cobra game made me feel a bit disappointed because I wasn't able to find my partner.
The experience of walking alone- made me realize how stupid I was that I was scared of being alone. It is so beautiful! :-) Thank you.
I can go a little more beyond what I think I can. The need for a push is always there. No one can do it better than one’s own self. Be confident and you can do it. Just let yourself free.
Very enriching. I explored another side of myself and I am very happy about it. There are lot of ways by which you can understand yourself and another person.
It was a very nice experience one thing that changed every thing in my head is the power of touch, I just now know how much touch counts for me and my partner and how the distance(geographical) is the hindrance. I was actually searching for him when I was in the game. Also projections were an important part of all the games and definitely I would use it in therapy with clients.
I think I’m better with sharing my personal space now. I also learnt that I wd be interested in attending more theatre workshops in the future. I think I like being challenged.Appreciate the time and the work you put in.
I need to let go and be less conscious of myself in order to live every moment of my life and enhance understanding of myself as a person. Thank you!
The whole idea of closing your eyes and trying to find one’s partner was a different experience where I got to explore or free myself of my inhibitions and just rely on whatever comes in my part and figure out if I’m in the right path or not.
While performing the Col Hypnosis Forum, Divya fought me. I realized that if I continued to try and oppress her with my hand I would have only one hand to fight her with, and I would lose. I realize that no matter how much power it seems the oppressor has ( and I’m thinking of even an unpleasant state of mind as oppressor) if you fought them/it, you fight as equals.They have to lay aside the oppression and fight you on an equal plane. And get enough people to do this, the plane becomes unequal in our favour. ( and I would very much like to keep in touch, maybe work with you and your organization)
