Sumedhas, Academy for Human Context, is an institution dedicated to the fostering of human processes. It is a (Section 25A, not for profit) research and educational body founded by behavioral scientists with diverse backgrounds and a shared discipline in the field.
Sumedhas aims to study living phenomena as these occur, and promote learning from experience in order to help generate convictions and the formation of new responses. This becomes the basis of creativity in processes of living and work. Sumedhas aims to spread the movement of learning from living to individuals and groups of all ages, gender and calling, irrespective of caste, creed and color.
Sumedhas also aims to create opportunities for people to join in promoting their own learning. It hopes that such learning will generate a critical mass of people who will carry their wisdom to reshape their lives and spaces (organizations, families, institutions) around them and enhance qualities of humanness with conviction, and dignity. Towards this, the Academy offers learning opportunities in the form of programs.
We believe that the time is at hand for people to
recalibrate their frames of relationships, self-worth,
meaningfulness, productivity and spirit. It is time for new
definitions, congruent with emergent realities that
constantly confront each one of us. We believe this
would help people discover dignity with compassion. It
will provide them the energy and convictions to redesign
their life space and search for freedom of expression
both in task and affiliative systems.
The Summer Program space of Sumedhas is one of the
crucibles where such recalibrations, redefinitions and
consequent release of new energy and convictions as
described above may be explored in a psychologically
safe setting with supportive resources.
