The workshop included three days program in which during the first day the purpose of the workshop was introduced to them and a sharing session was held in which they were asked to share their purpose of attending the workshop. Later Tarot Cards were shared with all the students helping them to understand the guiding sutra for their life through which they can manage and tune themselves with the issues of life that they are currently dealing with.

During the second day of the workshop the students shared their concern on personal and professional front and a group discussion was held and the issues were addressed in specific at the individual level to help them  tune with those issues and take them in stride and overcome them and see them as opportunities rather obstacles in one’s growth.

During the third day of the workshop, one of the Zen stories was discussed based on “Judgement” highlighting that how one should drop the issues that concern them. Further story suggested that because one is not in tune with themselves therefore one carries things of past or future instead choosing to live totally in the present and let go of issues that concern.

Later on the story was enacted theatrically by the participants to help them understand the core meaning of the sutra in a practical manner.

To conclude the workshop, students shared their feedback and felt the need of such kind of workshops as it helped them to understand their own self/others and situations that they are dealing with. All in all it helped them to understand the keys to learn the art of tuning and take every challenge as an opportunity to grow and explore in that aspect of life in the context of management of self and others.
