Talk – Emotional Wellbeing: Principles and foundation
Wellbeing spans all dimensions of our being: Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual.
Emotions play an important role in how we experience life and our ability to shape it, as well as the wellbeing of other individuals, groups and society as a whole.
Emotional wellness is a state of ‘being’ in which we experience equanimity, peace, confidence and contentment – not as a result of the external but an internal state of ‘being’, whatever the situation/ circumstance or however people may behave.
A person with a high level of emotional wellness ‘responds’ rather than ‘reacts’ - it allows us to better interact with and use the resources in any situation.
Thus, emotional wellness is the key to creativity, personal productivity, fulfilling relationships and effective team work.
There is growing interest in the tools and techniques that could help individuals and teams to enhance their emotional wellness. The objective of this talk is to introduce the topic of emotional wellness along with a few simple exercises to build the foundation for a new level of emotional wellness.
The talk presents a unique fusion of modern scientific knowledge with ancient wisdom to create intuitive insights into this emerging field.
About JV Avadhanulu
At the age of 41, JV (as he is known) was diagnosed with ischemic heart disease, high blood pressure and high blood sugar. Yoga and life style changes not only healed the ‘incurable’ disease but also gave him a new life. In 2007, JV quit his professional career to live in Auroville, located in south India (Auroville is the world’s first and only internationally recognized experiment in human unity and sustainable living: www.auroville.org) to explore the purpose of life.
He found his purpose in sharing the techniques and tools that helped him to live a happier, healthier and harmonious life. This was the beginning of his new journey in facilitating personal growth workshops.
Prior to joining Auroville, JV had a successful career spanning 38 years across the Indian Navy, academia and in senior management positions across pan-industrial multinationals.
He was one of the youngest persons to receive the Visisht Seva Medal for distinguished service from the President of India.
Since 2008, more than 5,000 people from 30 countries have attended his workshops and retreats, as well as Personal Growth courses at the Indian Institute of Management, Indore (one of the top business schools in India). He is currently touring USA and Europe, conducting workshops on Integral Being and also enjoying the scenic beauty, cultures, cuisine and the people of these continents.
