Inner Space Turns 8!
We turned 8 on the 26th of December, 2018! As always, we are excited and happy, more so because we have moved into a new office space!
We feel deeply grateful towards everybody who has been with us on this journey, our clients, our therapists and staff, our readers, and whoever has interacted with us in some capacity. We work each day looking to make a difference in some way, through action, intention or through the heart. You all are a big part of what keeps us going, and we thank you for every bit of it!
Inner Space in 2018
We’ve put together snippets of how this year was for us and some highlights of the year.
We have a New Office!
The biggest change this year was that we moved into a new office space, the inauguration of which we held recently! In addition to bringing in fresh energy and novelty, this space also has a dedicated meditation hall that we are very excited about!
Geshe Lobsang Tenzin graced our center with his peaceful, embodied presence. He conducted a meditation session for us and blessed the center. It was a beautiful experience.
Our Meditation Workshops
We hold mindfulness meditation workshops through the year. As always, we feel joyful to hold these workshops and create a space for mindfulness, rest and compassion. This year, we conducted:
- An eight week course on mindfulness and meditation
- A mindfulness based psychotherapy course
- A mindfulness meditation retreat,
- Introductory mindfulness workshops
Workshops in Organizations
We also feel grateful and happy to have conducted mindfulness meditation workshops in more organizations this year. Among others, we conducted mindfulness workshops for :-
- Employees and their families at Tata Power
- Senior Leaders at Mercedes Benz
- Women employees at Asian Paints
- Students at iCall (Tata Institute of Social Sciences)
- A Mindfulness Retreat for Antarang Foundation
- Sadia Saeed, our founder and chief psychologist also represented Inner Space at the 100 Wellness Leaders’ Meet, Mexico in May 2018.
Some Sharings from the Team
Entering Inner Space began the most beautiful phase of my life. Thank you Inner Space for accommodating me with so much love and warmth in the past three and half years, being patient, allowing me to make mistakes and learn from them, supporting me and giving me space to find my unique style in therapy, fulfilling all my needs and instilling in me a sense of unshakable confidence to take up bigger challenges.
Gitali Chatterji, Psychologist and Counselor
Working with Inner Space has been rewarding and invaluable. The physical space, team interaction and group work, Sadia’s backing when we’d be stuck with difficulties in cases and the amazing client journeys we could aide through inner space has been wonderful. Truly enriching and adequately stimulating has been my experience. Wishing all of the Inner Space team and the clients a healing, rewarding experience
Kunjal Shah, Psychologist and Counselor, 2012-2018
I have seen myself grow with the space since it was founded. Sadia and my other team mates have helped me overcome many a difficulty over these years, be it personal or professional. I have found the practice of mindfulness meditation and its underlying philosophy immensely useful, both in my life as well as in therapy. I am deeply thankful to Inner Space for being a space of warmth and growth.
Malini Krishnan, Psychologist and Counselor
I have met so many incredible people, as clients and as colleagues, through my 6 years at Inner Space. It has been a very powerful journey, where I have grown internally, been trusted and accepted, where I have unfolded deeper realms within myself while touching other people’s lives. I feel truly grateful.
Megha Tulsiyan, Psychologist and Counselor, 2013-2018.
We hope to continue working as best as we can and growing with you. May each of you be well and happy, as you enter into the new year. Wishing you the best!
