Organized by: Swasthya Homoeopathic Healing
Dated: 29th and 30th March 2008
..a desire- burning in its nature, to travel Roads- less traveled…for a cause..
..a cause- to conduct series of work- shops for the motivated and sincere homoeopathic doctors- beginners, on the free cost base.
.. a promise - to keep the inner fire alive so as to continue organizing and sharing for a noble cause…
.. A reciprocation- equal from the group to learn, and learn and learn…
..inspires the continuation of our journey…bringing forth the second destination for the work- shop series after the last meet up at Aadishwardham work shop (Oct 2007).
And the destination is Manas Mandiram, at Shahpur, Thane, India.
Manas Mandiram TirthShahpur-
..a holi place of Jains known by the name Shri Bhuvan Bhanu Jain Manas Mandiram Tirtha is located on Mumbai-Nashik highway, 91 Kms from Mumbai. It comprised a large temple complex atop a small hill near the mahuli river.
Pampered by the mountains amidst which it proudly stand, Manas mandiram acquired its own magnificent persona, which proved to be contagious for all of us...
..a persona with white shines resided the personified form of Jain tirthankar (God) Aadishwar dada-the first liberated god of Jainas-
..the shine, the light, the love that flowed through the Murti [god-statue] just enveloped every soul who came in its encounter..
..just to gift them a feeling of serenity, peace and love within..
Now I understand how difficult it is to put effects of such divine encounter into mere words…
All of us were moved with the experience...
Apart from blessing us with such divine encounter, Manas mandiram welcomed us with utmost grace;
be it tasty food, a clean and pleasant accommodation, or a lecture hall or break tea, every thing was just perfect to bless us a fresh and balanced state-
and that was reflected while the group discussed upon Case-Receiving process in Children-
And “ASENSATIONal journey…from Symptoms to Source in Children”that started from last work-shop was being continued..
..we learned and enjoyed each moment of cases presented on children..
..only to have a feeling- “Before I had six theories about Case Receiving in children; now I have six children, and no theories”!!!
It was amazing to witness the way each child expressed himself, and the way each case got unfolded from their altered patterns of thought, feeling, perception till the final source. various techniques came to rescue when the case got stuck at some point –
To explain his finer deeper experience, the first child used Drawing and expressed beautifully how he felt; “without an identity at the same time boasting someone else’s identity- a wonderful amalgam of Natrum-phosphoricum salt.
The second child Projected all her feelings and experience of a mad dog up on her friend – and she needed Lyssinum!
And the third case, the most brilliant of all- a child who just spoke monosyllabic words and just name of colors- and through patience of physician and his art to use medium of drawing at perfect time helped the child to express his inner turmoil, finally he did touch his inner altered state – he was given Octopus.
The most important learning that each of us gained was
- knowing when to use a technique in the case.
- Knowing which technique to follow.
- Importance of Passive Case-witnessing and importance of Observation during the same.
- Precise moment in a case to get Active and time to follow Active-Active case witnessing process in a case.
Art of various techniques dinesh used to unfold cases till source gave the group confidence that reaching source in children though tactful is possible..
..the session was so interesting that the first day, after the dinner, all of us were still hungry to know more, and session continued till 11.30 pm…only to fill us up with more energy- for the next day…
..the next day started at 6.30, we planned to take the group to Mahuli fort base- to start the day on a healthy note..
…a much sought after trekking destination - Mahuli fort is the highest point in Thane District; just 15 minutes away from this temple complex..
..we enjoyed every bit of our trip to the base of fort, everything starting from the ride to Mahuli fort in a Tempo, to the small walk amidst the greens and the group photo clicks…
..the bhakti-sandhya-a musical evening full of Bhakti songs, a selfless offering from the temple locals was just icing on the cake-
such divine offering can happen only in the place of divinity; the music that flowed through their hearts and instruments had a magical effect on us..
..this magical moments of being close to god through Bhakti-a divine love will be cherished forever..
Our group of 45 gathered at base-Mahuli fort (with few missing who preferred to rest on lap of bed instead of that of mother nature)
“I’m really so awed by the whole experience; the entire experience was so over whelming........the entire arrangement was flawless, at least I could have never asked or expected anything more..”.
“thank you for all the arrangements you all made for us and made us so comfortable… your sessions have really helped me. Coincidently and fortunately, I got the answers through the session which were really burning in my mind….”
“To begin with, a big thanks to you and ma'am for organizing such activity. Would be eagerly waiting for such activities in the future, with full participation… I am always mesmerized by the quality and quantity of work you and ma'am do. And this time was no different….there will more efforts and more work from my side. Your efforts of teaching us will surely not go waste. Thanking you once again for everything!”
..a note of Thanks to our working force- Drs. Jui, Kunjal and Sumegha..these people didn’t leave a single stone unturned to make this work-shop a reality-
