Have you ever wondered what the definition of love is? There is so much that has been written about love, so much said, much unsaid, that it leaves us beguiled, every single time. Philosophers have written books on it. We crave for it and do everything to be loved just a little more. Yet, love eludes us and how.
Is love about red roses, red wine, red tie, and red dress? Is it about running around trees in your chiffon sari with your beau? Is it about the care of a mother for the child? Is it about a fathers worry when her daughter doesnt return home before 9 pm? Is there an ideal way of loving? How will I know if I am in love? Why have I fallen out of love? How can I love again? What is love and what is not love? What are the boundaries in love, if there are any boundaries?
If these are questions, you have been asking yourself for a while. This event is for you. We will learn what the philosophers say, what the psychologist says and we will figure out what love means to us and what is our style of love. No more beguiling us, Mr. Love!
Facilitator - Anshima Gupta in her truest essence is nothing yet everything. She has a love for learning new things and is a student of and for life. She is a spiritual mentor, an educator, a singer, a poetess, and a dancer.
Anshima awakened to her truth at the age of 26. Her unusual early awakening is a result of the extreme inner suffering she underwent as a victim of a pattern of emotional, physical and sexual abuse. It is also the result of the untimely death of a close friend through suicide. At the age of 18, she questioned her existence and the purpose of life. She read text written by enlightened masters and chose awakening over every other thing. She learned healing techniques to relieve herself of her sufferings but eventually also ended up finding her life purpose.
She is a gifted healer and knows a lot of healing techniques intuitively without formally learning them through a class/course. Now, she uses her inner wisdom to help awaken others. 50% of what she teaches is knowledge acquired from her spiritual teachers. The rest comes from what she has learnt from her own life journey and inner awareness. She believes that inner wisdom has nothing to do with old age and grey hair. Inner wisdom is available for everyone in the here and now. It just depends on whether we are open to it.
Anshima is also the founder of Akshar India which is a one on one teaching cum mentoring program for underprivileged children. She has a degree in Economics Honours from SRCC, Delhi University and a Masters degree in Fashion Management from NIFT, Hyderabad. She has a Diploma in Clinical Counselling from the India Institute of Counselling, Delhi and a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Past Life Regression from EKAA institute, Mumbai. She has also done a 21-week course on womens spirituality under Rekha Kurup who is the founder of She Stands Tall Project LLP.
Commit To Self is borne out of Anshimas triumph over her suffering by choosing herself over everything and everyone else. Through Commit To Self, she teaches people how and why to choose themselves first. Commit To Self is a one of a kind spiritual consultancy cum one on one spiritual mentoring service. We are the first spiritual and mental health services platform which says that anxiety and depression are not bad. Depression is the path to spiritual growth, creativity and life purpose.
