What do they learn

Here are a few testimonials and feedback received from some of the teachers

who have attended our programs:

“Too good! Many ‘wow’ moments. The three-day session helped us to rediscover ourselves. For the rest of my life I will try to inculcate moral values not only in students, but also in my teachers, school and society. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for this teacher training program. It changed me as a person because now onwards I will try to see life from other person’s perspective.”

Teacher who attended the INSPIRE Program

“Initially I was a bit apprehensive about how I would spend three days of Heartfulness, but at the end of the three days my heart is full of positivity, clarity, hope, openness, empathy and a lot more. The trainers were excellent with all their presentation, anecdotes and group activities, guiding us all the way all these three days.”

Teacher who attended the INSPIRE Program

“Overall the program was really superb and fantastic, and I have got a lot of new and positive energy in me. It will be helpful to me in my school life as well as in my personal life. Along with my students I will also meditate in my daily life. Such seminars must be there every year and for some more days too. All the trainers were really superb and full of positive energy.”

Teacher who attended the INSPIRE Program

“The program was very useful in giving us the guidance to reach out to teachers of other institutions. The sessions were presented with love and motivated us that everyone of us can contribute in our own way.”

Teacher who attended the INVOLVE Program

“All the sessions were energizing. It was a ‘Helpful, Enriching, Accommodative, Realistic, Transformative, Fun-filled, Uncompromising, Learning’ experience (HEARTFUL Experience).”

Teacher who attended the INVOLVE Program
