Families Learning Together Gathering, At Swaraj University, Tapovan Ashram, Udaipur

22 September @ 8:00 am 26 September @ 5:00 pm IST

Dear Friend,

Soul-fi to you!

We believe this email finds you hale and hearty. In a world that is consumed by algorithms, hashtags, and followers, the need for human connection was deeply missed. We are writing to you so that we can share and offer this unique program on the exploration of the self & the connection with the others & environment as a family. We invite you to hop on to the colourful bandwagon of new systems of powerful conversation and creative action.

Families learning together is a five day living together and learning experience at Swaraj University, Udaipur. It’s an invitation to all the families and people who are thinking out of the box and experimenting with new ways of living and learning together. The experiments could be in areas of farming, off grid living, healing, unschooling/homeschooling, learning/unlearning together as a family, designing, film making and more. This is also an invitation to families who are open to redefining their definition/vision of families, living together and learning together. The gathering seeks to engage the heart, hands, head and home, all of our senses and sensibilities, for re-imagining our lifestyles and systems.

This is a setting where you will not only get to relax and unwind with your family but will also get a chance to share your talents, explore more about yourself, engage in heart to heart conversations, form deeper relationships, have moments filled with joy and happiness with many other people.

The experience runs in the spirit of co-creation. A lot of activities will be co-created by all participants. Adding to the excitement, we will also have play, community music and singing, cooking together, dance/movement, art, conversations, trek, etc.

We start on Friday, September 22nd, 2023, 11:00 am and go until Tuesday, September 26th, 2023, 5:30 pm. 

The Gathering is organised in the spirit of gift culture. We feel everyone is a teacher, a co-creator with many gifts to share to help build the larger community.The suggested contribution for this is ₹18,000 per family of 3-4 people inclusive of the food, stay and facilitation.You can contribute from your heart. We would greatly appreciate it, if you can give more to sponsor others’ participation. Lack of money should not deter anyone from attending or from full participation. Please feel free to contact us if  money is the constraint to participate.

About the host and Venue:

SwarajUniversity was born in 2010 as a two year learning programme for youth. The focus of the programme is on self-designed learning and on green entrepreneurship, including exploration of basic business skills within the context of ecological sustainability and social justice.

This self-directed learning process invites learners to identify their hearts’ visions and engages them in developing the skills, relationships and practises they need to manifest those visions.

The programme is as much about developing the capacities and confidence we need to create and pursue our unique learning paths as it is about strengthening the leadership capacity and right livelihood opportunities in communities.

There is NO degree or certificate required to join Swaraj University, and we do not give any degrees after the course. We are proud of being totally unrecognized and un-deemed, since we believe in creating portfolios based on one’s own experiences rather than degrees and certificates as a proof of one’s education. We are also part of the campaign, Healing Ourselves from Diploma Disease, a national campaign to say NO to degrees and certificates and promote a better evaluation framework such as that which is based on experience and  portfolios. 

Tapovan Ashram is a beautiful, tranquil, green, 15 acre campus located in an isolated,  scenic valley between two mountain ranges, 15 kms from Udaipur city in the western Indian state of Rajasthan. 

The Ashram has an organic farm, herb gardens and an ayurvedic healing centre. Away from the noise and pollution of city life, it offers a serene and beautiful environment for reflection, self-exploration and healing.  There are a lot of opportunities for nature and wild-life lovers for walks and trails, and for some bird-watching or snake spotting.  One gets to witness a variety of flora and fauna thriving in the hills surrounding the Ashram, including foxes, hyenas, and leopards.

Built within this greenery are the staying facilities, common kitchen, dining room, library, meditation hall, swimming pools, nature cure facilities, cow shed etc.
