The chariot of the modern world galloping on the wheels of technological advancements and empirical dexterity, with an aim to achieve happiness and better standards of living, finds itself cocooned in a more anxious, competitive and technologically turbulent world. And hence, apart from the intellectual quotient, their has been a realizing need of better emotional health and intelligence, that defines our thoughts, feelings and behaviors to bring out the best in us.
This enlightening session on how the better emotional intelligence and well-being find resonance in better spiritual well-being, and how the domain of spirituality can be instrumental in giving us a world, which is more productive, more resilient to stress, and anxiety, that values relationships and is more purposeful.
