Edulift’s Exploring Happiness Program is yet another program initiated in January 2019 and is conducted for the young participants from Himalayan Region, studying in Kathmandu and India. This program is mainly designed with a main motive to utilize the winter vacation of the student from Community schools in Kathmandu and India for them to enjoy their Holidays with learning objectives. This year, we are conducting this program Virtually over Zoom. We will provide a book “The Art of Happiness” written by HH the Dalai Lama and Howard C. Curtler.
We will read the book Chapter wise every week and host a discussion session every weekend. To make it more fruitful, Geshe Tenzin Nyima will be a resource person and guide us with the Book and also conduct workshop on basic Meditation.

Spoken word poetry is the second phase of the EduLift Art & language program. This course deals with poetry in the spoken sense, which means that it needs to be recited or spoken aloud to an audience along with building your life-relevant skills and competencies. With the lesson learnt from the Virtual version of the Spoken word poetry program 2020 conducting an online program was a bit of a challenge due to unscheduled power cuts, unstable internet and limited resources to the participants this year EduLift Team is prepared to conduct this program in its own Office space with a limited number of participants in a safe environment as possible.  As per Covid-19 response, schools are still developing Strategies to Run physical classes back inside school premises allowing outsiders a risk to them. With the open Participation and limited participation in this program, we believe the impact of the program will be more visible and Effective. This year along with the learning our participants will also have their poems published in different media like blogs, websites, magazines and perform in various public spaces inside Kathmandu.

Exhibition Introduction
Shunyata : A Reflective Journey of a Separate Self 
Identity|Moments|Happiness
 
This photo exhibition “Shunyata : A Reflective Journey of a Separate Self – Identity|Moments|Happiness” is the final outcome and celebration of the hard work these young minds have created, with full assistance from EduLift, Sagar from Nepal Picture Library and Sahil, who is an independent thangka artist.  
This exhibition sheds light on the concept of Shunyata which is a key concept of Buddhist Philosophy. The Dalai Lama says that shunyata is the absence of an absolute essence or independent existence. Simply, it means nothing exists as it appears as it is always dependent from one form to another. Following this philosophy, our participants have taken journeys within themselves and around the vibrant Kathmandu city. Each of the participants’ photographic work here has specific tales which serves the purpose of telling the visual stories of reflective self as, who am I? (Identity) Home, Embracing moments and Happiness.


EduLift is bringing a new exciting program for you all; “Storytelling Through Photography”.  It won’t matter if you have limited knowledge in the storytelling or photography field, our program sessions will be easy to understand and will cater to the beginner and Intermediate level participants. We will be exploring the art of Storytelling through any lens(device) you own. This program will be highly individual-based and by the end of the program, you all will have your individual portfolios built as well as get the opportunity to showcase your photographs in an exhibition for higher exposure towards building your competencies and skills.
