Ishan, Jasbir ji and myself met at our regular meeting place (sector 33 park) on 6th Feb 2011. It was my chance to coordinate the meeting. We started with laughter session and a nice 15 minute meditation and then I introduced bouncing (in detail) to the group. We used it in our next activity where we started by telling our name, our profession, our best friend’s name, colour of our shirt, number of pockets in our trousers etc by varying the number of bounces from 2 to 9! The basic idea was not to speak sentences but just one word, which makes it easier to focus on the technique. Next was the round of table topics where all of had to speak on a given topic for 3 minutes. Then came the surprise and challenge of the day – face game! In this each person would give one emotion, feeling (can even give a situation and person will know how one feels if hes in that situation) and the other person would have to use his facial expressions to show that feeling ( link ) . One of the surprise was feeling of love! (Just stand in front of a mirror and try this :-)..The idea behind this activity was to make us aware that their are a lot of non verbal communication also that goes on between people. Also it was an activity to challenge all of us! Next all of us spoke on self respect for 2 minutes. We ended with a round of tea with a-again a round of voluntary stammering and bouncing with the chai wala (This guy may be looking for a new place by now! From next time we will spare him and find some other bakara 🙂

As planned the next regular meeting will be on 20th Feb 2010 (I will post the venue and Agenda on blog on 17th Feb). For the weekends when their is no formal meet, we plan to meet over a cup of coffee and a round of snacks. This weeks casual meet will be on Saturday evening in sector – 17 Plaza (Ishan please post the details soon)! Also Mr Jasbir is giving his fourth project speech in toastmasters this Saturday. Please be there! (Sir please post the venue and timings)
