About the Mediation Training Skills Workshop:

This workshop has been created by Meena Waghray as she was undergoing the 40 hour mediation training herself she realised that this had to be made relevant to the Indian audience and she was already making notes.


Her exposure to courts and observing all those cases which were in courts but needed to be out of court, and her interactions with people in the Art Of Living training and she herself being from a joint family set up helped her to shape this brilliant piece of training.


This has been delivered to almost all strata of society. Senior citizens, Psychologists, Teenage students, Staff of High School, Colleges, and Corporates have made these internationally proven steps of mediation completely relevant to the Indian audiences and more importantly to the non-lawyers.


It breaks the norm that says that – only lawyers can be mediators. The statement that #Anyonecanbeamediator actually holds good.


The sessions in the training are practical and hands-on. The theory is limited to reading material provided. The idea is that people learn when they do something and not when they simply listen to well-worded lectures.


A huge shift happens in the vocabulary of the participants as they supplement the words of mediation. A mindset of resolution dawns as against the mindset of conflict.
