“I came out alone on my way to my tryst.
But who is this that follows me in the silent dark?
I move aside to avoid his presence but I escape him not.
He makes the dust rise from the earth with his swagger;
he adds his loud voice to every word that I utter.
He is my own little self, my lord, he knows no shame;
but I am ashamed to come to thy door in his company.”
About the workshop:
When was the last time you got angry because things didn’t go your way? When have you felt like you were not appreciated, that you needed more, deserved more? When did you worry over how people thought about you? When was the last time you refused to listen to someone, because you thought you were right and they were wrong?
We believe that our fear, anger, frustration, or any negative emotion results from externalities. We believe that it is the person who hurts us, the job that frustrates us, the situation that limits us, and once we change into a new relationship, a new company, a new environment, we will be fine.
Yet, it’s rarely the case.
The truth is, we become so caught up with the external opponent that we forget that the real opponent we need to be dealing with is the one within.
As part of the Ego series, this workshop explores the concept of Ego, how it affects our day-to-day life and how can we take control of it, instead of being controlled by. If you are looking for the root cause of your sufferings and the ultimate remedy, this workshop is for you.
The 2nd and the 3rd Ego workshops will take place on the 3rd and 10th of December.
