When I was five years old my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life!

John Lennon

Demands, stress, pressure and change are all an integral part of life. While there is no escaping stress, it is an established fact that sustained stress leads to emotional and physical fatigue and a host of health issues, all of which undermine both physical and psychological well being.

Satori has been founded with a vision to help individuals navigate the challenges and demands of modern life with equanimity and elan.To remain grounded and centered in the midst of stress and pressure. And in doing so, live life to the fullest.

CORPORATE WELLNESS PROGRAMS

The success and performance of your organization depends upon your employees being at the top of their game.

It is widely recognized that employees are at their most productive when they're healthy, have low stress levels, and feel that their employers care about their well-being.

Our Resilience Building ProgramTM is a series of wellbeing workshops designed to help your company achieve this.

Our 3 hour workshops are delivered in your office on a monthly basis and cover a range of topics such as performing effectively under pressure, building positive relationships at work, managing time effectively, leveraging core strengths and talents, releasing blocks that prevent us from reaching our goals, learning to prioritize in an age of distraction. See our annual program calendar...

Our goal is to develop a tenacious, resilient and engaged workforce, that is able to stay centered and function effectively in the face of stress, uncertainty and pressure.

As change is difficult and habitual ways of reacting to demands and pressures often deep seated and almost instinctual, we supplement our workshops with ongoing individual development plans that help deepen one's learning.

STUDENT WELLNESS PROGRAMS

Pressures and demands on children today are astronomical. They are being forced to meet standards that are often unrealistic and in most cases, unviable.

Adding to the pressure is the fact that this is the period of one's life when one has to make critical decisions about embarking on a career path, often without much clarity on what one is truly passionate about.

Keeping the above challenges in mind, we have two programs for students:

Riding the WaveTM is a program designed specifically for students and aims to empower them with the necessary personal and interpersonal skills required to deal effectively with the challenges of academic life. Learn more...

Discovering our IkigaiTM is a unique experiential program that takes one into a journey of self-discovery, helping one discover a career and life path that is aligned to one's core strengths, passions and personality. The word Ikigai is composed of two characters: 'iki' which refers to life, and 'kai' which is the realization of that which brings meaning to life. According to Japanese philosophy, everyone has an ikigai. Discovering and acting upon it makes life both meaningful and gratifying. Learn more...

RIDING THE WAVETM

Riding the WaveTM is a program designed specifically for students and aims to empower them with the necessary personal and interpersonal skills required to deal effectively with the challenges of academic life.

The program helps students learn how to:

  • Change the way they think and react to demands, so they can manage any challenge
  • Deal effectively with academic pressures and anxiety
  • Cultivate persistence and perseverance so that one can continue working towards goals no matter how hard it gets or how long it takes
  • Deal with social pressures with confidence, equanimity and elan

Most importantly, as teenage years can often be awash with conflicting emotions, our program teaches students how to manage and release toxic emotions such as anger, anxiety and sadness and navigate life with a deep sense of self love and self esteem.

DISCOVERING OUR IKIGAITM
Embarking on a life & work path aligned to ones core strengths & competencies

Ikigai is a Japanese concept that means 'one's reason for being'. It is composed of two characters: 'iki' which refers to life, and 'kai' which is the realization of that which brings meaning to life.

According to Japanese philosophy, everyone has an Ikigai. Discovering and acting upon it makes life both meaningful and gratifying.

Conflict and confusion between our core driving forces; lack of awareness of what we are truly passionate about - these are some of the reasons why we are unable to move forth with single minded focus and often find ourselves in careers which are not aligned to our core strengths and competencies.

Using a variety of experiential techniques, our Ikigai workshops take each individual into a journey of self-discovery, helping them connect with their unique "reason to be"

COMMUNITY WELLNESS PROGRAMS

Dangerous stress levels, in conjunction with increasingly sedentary lifestyles, are leading to a society where stress related illnesses are increasing at alarming rates.

Unmanaged stress in an always-on world disrupts functioning of the adrenal and thyroid glands, leading to a host of health problems such immunosuppression, coronary heart diseases, type-2 diabetes, anxiety and insomnia, among others.

Our vision is to create healthy, resilient and vibrant communities and promote wellness through a series of initiatives and programs that equip individuals with the skills, attitudes and coping strategies needed to stay centered and function effectively in the face of stress, change and pressure.

Moving StillnessTM is a holistic program that works at the level of the body, mind and spirit, helping individuals develop the capacity to not only face adversity but use it constructively. Learn more...

Our Emotional Detox ProgramTM helps one learn how to release toxic emotions such as anger, anxiety and self-pity that have built up in our systems and are preventing us from being truly happy with our relationships, careers, homes and lives. Learn more...

MOVING STILLNESSTM

Stress is not an inevitable response to demands and pressures. The same demand can evoke high stress in one person, but not in another. Why is that so? What differentiates people who are able to withstand tremendous amounts of pressure, from those who succumb easily to the debilitating effects of stress?

Moving StillnessTM addresses all these questions. It helps one understand traits and factors that lead to individual differences in susceptibility to stress. It also equips individuals with the skills, attitudes and coping strategies needed to stay centered and function effectively in the face of stress, change and pressure.

Employing diverse experiential tools that engage the mind, body and heart, the program helps individuals gain rigorous personal insight into habitual patterns and armed with that understanding, develop new healthy ways of dealing with the challenges of everyday life.

Participants learn to:

  • Identify and free oneself of limiting mind sets and behavior patterns
  • Reframe, and manage thoughts and emotions that lead to crisis mentality and time pressure
  • Learn how to manage and regulate emotions - both their own and of others - especially when one is under pressure
  • Work towards developing a sense of "moving stillness"

EMOTIONAL DETOX PROGRAMTM

"Detox" has become a relatively common term these days. However, while we regularly detox our bodies of physical toxins, we often pay little or no attention to detoxifying the mind.

Just like physical toxins, toxic emotions such as anger and anxiety that have built up in our systems affect not only our psychological wellbeing; they also impact our physical health. In fact a host of physical ailments that plague society today are psychosomatic in nature, with their genesis in suppressed and unresolved emotions.

The Emotional Detox ProgramTM is an intense transformational program that helps participants:

  • Regulate their emotional energy in a way that is energizing rather than draining
  • Recognize what drains one emotionally and how to deal with those energy zappers
  • Deal with emotional fatigue and rebuild depleted resources

Using the Emotional Detox ProgramTM, one can learn how to "let go" and release toxic emotions such as anger, anxiety and self-pity that have found a home within us and are preventing us from being truly happy with our relationships, careers, and lives.
