We all are half done, we all are incomplete. Mohan Rakesh's Aadhe Adhure is what true theatre is. It is pure drama written with a very nuanced and methodical understandings of human psyche. It repeatedly draws often the theme of our expectations and reality. Are we happy with what we have? Can we ever be happy? What is happiness?

In Aadhe Adhure, Mohan Rakesh takes an ordinary family where the family relationships are already crumbling. The wife is the only earning member in a family of 5, the husband has lost all his self-confidence. The elder daughter eloped and married but is still struggling to find happiness, her younger brother has reached of age but yet to find a job and the youngest teenager has coming of age problems coupled with a need to get attention. The wife is tired of taking care of everyone and has her own desires and ambitions.

Rakesh wastes no time in setting up the tension, but he never lets go off it. This is a story where everyone is at fault and yet no-one is. Rakesh unfolds the story brilliantly and his command over his audience is splendid.

TOYO - Theatre on your own, uses minimal props to render the story. At some points, it feels mere a dramatic reading of the play yet the actors render their roles with a gloom that stays with you even after the play gets over. There is also a minimal use of shadow effects yet it adds exponential flavoring.

Aadhe Adhure is a must watch play. You can take your parents to this one and it will be a discussion point for the way back home.

Shamanism is probably the oldest method that uses consciousness for life help and to solve problems. In this workshop you will be introduced to Shamanic journeying which brings us in touch with our helpers from the spiritual world. We will learn to listen again to our intuition, our inner voice, to be more able to follow our inner guidance on our path of life.

In this workshop Batrice Simmons will offer group sessions, ceremonies, and individual work.

A lot more to know, here: Introduction to Shamanism - A Workshop

You can also book individual sessions with Batrice. All info about those here: Individual Shamanic Sessions

It shows how we have unwittingly contributed to some of the biggest problems on this planet by believing that the problem is out there and not with us.

As importantly, it also offers breakthrough ideas on how to become a part of the solution instead of being part of the problem.

This seminar gives a shocking exposure into why we face so many problems in our health, food supply and our environment. It shows how we have unwittingly contributed to the some of the biggest problems on this planet by believing that the problem is out there and not with us.

It gives breakthrough ideas on how to become a part of the solution instead of being part of the problem. It will show you how to become a conscious consumer and improve not only your own health, but also how your daily actions can benefit organic food supply, the environment and this planet.

In a modern world why are illnesses such as diabetes, cholesterol, BP, obesity, hormonal imbalance, asthma, liver problems, kidney disease, cancer etc. on the rise despite a million medicines being around? What has failed so miserably with our modern medicine systems?

Modern foods formats cause not only many diseases but also a big problem in our food supply chain, as well as a global garbage & pollution problem that can only be reversed by every individuals action.

Shoonya - Centre for Art and Somatic Practices
Our bodies have been conditioned over many years to move, react and be used in the wrong ways. Our hectic lifestyles, demanding careers and unnatural environments have led to us holding stresses and tensions in our joints and muscles for long long periods of time... decades, more.

Imagine what would happen if you released them?

#TheAlexanderTechnique is used by sportspeople, working professionals, performers and those recovering from injuries and surgery all over the world to great benefit. And we have one of the most experienced trainers and facilitators in the world #nojoke here at the end of the month to help us heal/grow from it.

Unlearn, recondition and begin a new healthier use of your own body. Release and rediscover new layers to the mind-body connection. Watch your pains melt.

Weekend workshop: 28th & 29th Oct

Individual sessions: 30th Oct onward

Due to the intensive nature of the work there are only limited spots. Please write to us or follow the link to our website in our bio to register or read more.

Surya Kriya, the second offering in the Hatha Yoga Wellness Week - Lalbagh, Bangalore curated by Sanam Dasmahapatra, a practitioner and teacher of Isha Yoga.

Surya means sun and kriya means inner energy process. Surya Kriya activates the solar plexus to raise the samat prana, or solar heat, in the system. It also balances a persons left and right energy channels, leading to stability of the body and stillness of the mind. This strong foundation becomes the basis to explore higher dimensions of life.

The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the human body. The evolution of the bipedal gait in human beings has freed the upper limbs for the numerous functions that the gait performs. Key to this functionality is the shoulder joint. Its mobility however comes with a price. Dislocations of the shoulder joint are more common than in any other joint. It is also commonly injured in sportspersons and dancers.

This session will focus on the structure and function of the shoulder joint with a special emphasis on its movements and the protective mechanisms that maintain the stability of the joint. The anatomical basis of the more common injuries of the shoulder joint will also be discussed.

|| What you gain ||

By the end of the session the listener will be able to appreciate the following:

> Bones forming the shoulder joint

> Factors maintaining the stability of the joint

> Movements at the joint and the muscles causing them

> Common injuries of the joint and their prevention
