I found that somehow day two of Herbutpur workshop could not be posted successfully on our blog so i am hereby posting it again.....
Day two started at 7.00.AM with meditation session on request of some PWS. Mr lalit Pandey who also joined with four more PWS, guided us in meditation. As a beginner we found it difficult to continuously monitor our breath but we learnt the technique which is very simple and easy to practice in daily life. Dr. Vijay who is also a PWS and speech therapist also joined today. We found him very confident in delivering speech with minimal stammering.
Dr Sachin demonstrated breathing exercise and correct way of doing abdominal breathing. Especially Dr. Vijay (Homeopath) who is also a PWS found it very useful in his case. Dr Sachin explained in brief about Budhism & Jain way of meditation and a technique that can be practiced while walking, also called ‘walking meditation’.
Next one and half hour we practice bouncing and prolongation techniques in detail and learnt how to adapt these techniques in our daily routine. We found it very useful in clearing our speech block.
Mr Sumit (PWS) who study in class IX in public school in Dehradun visited for short duration. He has been continuing with TISA for past several years and we found his attitude very positive which amaze all of us. Although he was the youngest among us but he immensely inspired all of us.
We had an exercise in which we made fun of our stammering. We enjoyed many parodies on stammering which were like this.
’chahe mujheh koi hakla kahe…..kehne ho to kehta rahe……….’
‘main hakla kyoun hoon……….’
‘Chalte chalet yunhee rukh jaata hoon main….’
While Dr. Sachin was away for a while, we had a brief session where we did mimic other PWS in front of them. it was difficult to control our laughter, Mr. Amit emerged as a mimickery master. Yesterday also, at Lake Assan he copied the likes of Nana Patekar, Sunil Shetty and Sharukh Khan with perfection.
We call end of the day by shouting ‘main haklata hoon ‘loudly in coffee house.
