About SENSEi:
Each of us at SENSEi had individually begun our journey through life’s unique situations, the variety ranging from health issues, anxiety, mid-life crisis etc. Coming together through our common practice of meditation, we transformed our lives into a medicine-free and purposeful one. The community came together and started to grow with the vision to enable all to lead a medicine-free, empowered and joyous lives.

Why Meditation as a Cause?
Starting off, we noted that the term meditation itself had a lot of preconditioning attached to it and yet it was the dire need of the hour for everyone (whether it be proven stats or a general observation around our every day).
To tackle the challenge of holistic health, that includes physical, mental and emotional health, we give FREE meditation sessions on the SCIENCE OF MEDITATION to schools, colleges, corporate and other institutions that are willing to explore the beauty of this technique. In our sessions, we share the science behind what meditation really is and the practical technique of doing meditation (beyond the guru-based concept, mantras or visualization practices).
We also conduct mass meditation outreach sessions in public spaces using music as a medium to create awareness and de-mystify the myths behind the do-don'ts of meditation.

Through our own experience, we have seen a countless number of stories of Self- healing from ailments like blood pressure, migraine to cancer and empowered ladies after a low state of depression. Science too has been researching the benefits of meditation. Listing down a few below:
  • 4 weeks of meditation can increase focus by 14%, while another showed that just a single session cuts mind-wandering by 22%;
  • A published study conducted at Google and Roche, in which employees who meditated for 8 weeks, had similar results; participants reported a 46% reduction in depression and a 31% reduction in anxiety;
  • Another study showed that 30 days of regular meditation resulted in an 11% increase in mental resilience;
  • A 2018 study found that medical students who meditated for just 10 days had a 12% decrease in stress; a separate study found that people who meditated for 30 days reduced stress by a third.
  • In one study, participants who meditated for 3 weeks experienced a 57% reduction in aggression and reactivity to negative feedback. In another, 10 days of Headspace reduced participants’ irritability by 27%.

About the Campaign:
The Campaign Swa-Anubhav” was planned initially on April 17, 2020 as an experiential Youth festival which would include talks by inspiring speakers who are also regular meditators, workshops and exhibition stalls on conscious living and a music concert. 
This was ofcourse, Pre-lockdown days.

Now, in the wake of the ongoing global challenges and India's lockdown scenario coupled with the emergence of Mindfulness as the most urgent need of the hour for both physical and mental health, SWA-ANUBHAV is going ONLINE.

Nothing can deter us to continue on with our purpose. So catch us on social media with planned ZOOM sessions with brilliant masters brought to you at the comfort of your home!
