Self Exploration with Vineeta
“Human relationships intrigue me a lot. In my experience, how we relate to others and to life primarily depend on how we relate to ourselves.
I started my explorations by challenging prevalent parenting and educational practices, some thirty years ago. In any culture, parent–child and teacher-student relationships play a major role in the growth and development of the child. Through these experiences, the child develops a sense of self which in turn ascertains how the child is going to engage with the world and what meaning and learning the child is going to draw out of his/her experiences. Further, as teachers and parents, how we relate to the child and the child’s changing needs at different developmental stages depends on our awareness about our relationship with ourselves. Our relationship with ourselves is determined by the experiences that we have gathered while growing up. And thus the cycle goes on.
Nature and nurture are the instruments that determine the uniqueness of the personal experiences that we create and hold on to. As the child grows in the culture of a family and society in accordance with his/her own nature, he/she can grow up into an empowered human being through the processes of nurture provided by parenting and education.
In today’s fast paced life, when technology is replacing our social fabric, human relationships are taking a backseat. We are replacing the warmth and compassion of human relationships with a fast-paced and mechanical life characterized by an over-dependence on technology, in a commercial and capitalist society. This is often leaving today’s generation rudderless and anchor-less. As a collective, this reflects in the kind of world we create around ourselves.
In my work with children, adolescents, young adults, parents and teachers, I focus on creating processes that serve to raise self-awareness of the participants and have the potential to enable them to work towards finding fulfilling and empowered relationships with self, others and Life itself.”
