NALSAR collaborated with Heartfulness Institute, a not for profit organisation, and happy to bring a set of three meditation sessions for the students of NALSAR.
COVID-19 has made all of us face situations like never before. We are all challenged to change and adapt to a new normal amidst a complex and ambiguous future. As a result of this transition, most of us are facing anxiety and stress, to say the least. As law students, we may be facing challenges in managing our homes, online classes, online internships, online moots, planning our future careers with uncertainty around on-campus interviews and PPOs. All of this without the usual comfort of real-world interactions and support systems.
Science has shown anxiety and stress to have an adverse effect on the brain and emotions leading to a “freeze, fight or flight” response, in turn affecting our efficiency, decision making, and productivity. Science has also shown that meditation and other contemplative practices bring in deep relaxation and activate those portions of the brain which leads to balance and better clarity.
The workshop sessions are designed to be experiential, participative, and insightful and would address the aforementioned issues. It will be facilitated by professionals in the field of law like partners at a prominent law firm or young corporate lawyers who have been practicing Heartfulness meditation and other practices.
The sessions are scheduled to take place on 20th, 21st and 22nd of August 2020 (Thursday to Saturday) from 4 PM to 5 PM.The timing of the session can be extended if required for Q&A. The speakers are Mr. Akshay Nagpal (Partner at L&L Partners), Mr. Aditya Barrela (Entrepreneur) and Ms. Meghana Konda (Lawyer) and all of them are Heartfulness Trainers.
If you are interested in the sessions, please register at HERE by 18th August (Tuesday), 11:59 PM. After these 3 introductory sessions, the institute is happy to offer free weekly sessions to explore other topics including career options, preparing for career, etc. based on the interest of the students.
