Human Values Seminar in Budapest, Hungary

The European Sathya Sai Education Institute (ESSEI) held a seminar in Budapest on 3rd and 4th March 2018, as part of an ongoing series of ESSEI seminars emphasising putting human values into practice every day. The module focused on practical implementation of values-based education through various teaching techniques, such as the art of asking questions, storytelling, group singing, meditation, prayers and studying quotations. The seminar featured several workshops and group discussions, including a role-playing activity illustrating how the methods work so efficiently. The participants found both the lectures and workshops valuable. One participant summarised the impact of the course by commenting, “I have come to understand the five human values more and more as not just words, but as a necessity.”
