Human Values Seminar in Paris, May 2016
During the weekend of 28th and 29th of May 2016, 27 members from France, 4 from Switzerland and 2 from Belgium, got together in Paris to follow the last module of the intermediate level (Course 2) of the Sathya Sai Education Programme in Human Values, organized by the ISSE-SE (South European Institute of Sathya Sai Education) in cooperation with ESSE (North European Institute of Sathya Sai Education).
Two teachers, from the North and South of Europe, enabled each participant to deepen, enrich and put into practice their knowledge of the four basic principles of Sathya Sai Education, namely, unity in thought, speech and action (Head, Heart and Hands – 3HV), unity in faiths, ceiling on desires (followed by workshops in small groups) and unity in diversity.
One participant from Belgium spoke on “The Art of Speaking in Public” (with practical exercises) and a participant from France spoke of “The 5 Human Values from the Perspective of the Major Local Religions”. A young participant from Paris successfully presented a theme on “Love” in order to receive the Course 1 certificate.
The seminar ended with the award of the Certificate, a presentation of a plan for the next seminar and a group photo. The next seminar has been scheduled for the 13th and 14th of May 2017.
