Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha…..ooopsssss uncontrolled bouncing

It
was a chilling Christmas morning when a handful of stutterers
gathered to discuss and learn how mind and body can be trained to
work in cohesion to help them speak better.
Making
it further a more pleasant experience, the facilitator himself was a
stutterer as well.
Excited
enough to read what actually happened that day?
Well..well….hold
on.Every good secret take some time to unfold.
Before
jumping to the script(activities of that day), let us know the
characters first:

Protagonist
alias facilitator                                        Mr.Sergey from Ukraine
Director
of the play (co-ordinator)                            Mr.jagbir, amazing event co-ordinator
Antagonist,the
villain                                                  Myself, well guys i don’t
like praising myself


Here goes the list of actors and that one actress (ladies first)

Sophie
Abhay
Mohsin
Premdeep
Rahul
(Gwalior)
Subham
Sharma
Avinash
Prakashdeep
Jeetu
Pal
Shailender
Naresh
Kumar
Jitender
Vikram
Shiv
Shankar Sharma
We
started a bit late around 10 am because it was a super chilling day
making the actors to reach the venue late.
But
they didn’t mind it at all because they are so habitual of getting
the words late out of their mouth.
Not
to forget, the antagonist reached the venue by 11AM and he took the
revenge of not waiting for him by taking more than double the time
allotted for his useless talk.
The
facilitator,Sergey introduced himself.really such a nice hearted
mature man in his 50s. Apart from having a beautiful heart, he got a
very charming face as well.Now, I can understand why girls from
Russian region are considered so beautiful.
Then
Mr.jagbir, the director gave necessary instructions to all the
participants and share all the ground rules.He was no less than
Steven Spielberg at that time.And, those usual eyes closing with a
smile on face while dealing with a block…such a killer expression
(maar daala).
Then
the facilitator revealed various secrets of mind and how it
functions.Then i got to know how I can train this never stopping mind
to maintain a positive frame of mind while communicating.it was a
mini talk on POSITIVE THINKING.Giving Positive affirmations
throughout the day of being a good communicator and positive
visualization of future speaking situations that we are speaking
comfortable in those situations.
Whatever
we think, we are tend to become the same
Then
we proceed to meditation session. Anapanasati (mindfulness of
breathing) was practised for about an hour in 3 intervals with
increasing order of time duration.It was a sort of preparatory
meditation practice for VIPASSANA meditation
Then
that charming Ukrainian man spoke about the correct way of breathing
and its advantages. He spoke about diaphragmatic/coastal breathing
technique. Various belly muscles strengthening exercises were
discussed by him.
it
was the turn for rhythmic speaking session where we learnt hot to
speak text sentences in a rhythm to speak effortlessly.
After
that we rush to have lunch, one of the most exciting part of this
session fir sure.
You
know guys, i was knowing already that the director (Mr.jagbir) is a
foodie and I was proved right by checking that delicious lunch menu.
After
lunch, it was my turn to make sure no body got slept.So, i bombarded
everyone there with a useless talk for almost one and half hour.
I
bet, no body dared to sleep in that session and they were all ears to
me with eyes wide open.
I
tried to make an awful attempt to explain about the concept of
TISA,acceptance and a brief of various speaking techniques.
In
the evening,Sergey was back with a fantastic yoga session.He is
really a pro when it comes to yoga.I can clearly remember the glow in
his eyes before the start of yoga session.
He
was all around with all those yoga postures.He started with easy ones
and gradually introduced those amazing postures where he would fold
his body parts in crazy style with so ease and I would just see him
with my mouth wide open.Owing to the risk of rupture in my newly
bought jeans, I kept my emotions in control and prefer to watch
Mr.Jagbir and others doing them so eagerly.
Then,
it was the time for some chit-chat and fun activities like press
conferences,debates and roleplays.
Not
to forget, we have a few tea sessions in between to maintain our
energy levels.
Then,
the director (Mr.jagbir) presented 2 packets of pickle to the
facilitator as a token of thanks for sharing all these wonderful
ideas with all of us.

Director
claimed that it was homemade pickle which he himself prepared but he
was lying because i could clearly see the brand label (NILON’s) on
those packets.

    Such a nice post ashish. You nailed it, excellent writeup.

    You only got those pickle ashish. 😉

    I hope every attendee is now very clear what TISA is after your explanation. It was the same what i had in my mind.

    At first i was very hesitant how this event will shape up. But then i got strength from Sachin sir and sikander sir and everything was very well arranged. Abhisekh and vishal couldnot attend the workshop but they helped a lot in making this workshop successful.

    Also, i would like to thank all the attendees as without them it wouldn't be possible.

    We hope to organize more events like these.
