What Is Eshaas?
Ehsaas is a safe space for expressing emotional challenges and developing insights about what we feel and how we feel. The pandemic has led to collective distress and calls for collective healing, in response to it we are bringing up a support group for the people to share and connect
What is the story behind this?
We understand what it means to be unable to process and manage emotions and understand the importance of emotional wellbeing to live a healthy life. As human beings, we often experience distress and sometimes feel overwhelmed by the different emotional experiences. Whether we hide our emotions or express them, most of us are ignorant of the fact that emotions carry information and bring us insight. Ehsaas is born out of the need to help people to acknowledge and embrace various emotions to be able to let them guide our behaviour
Who is your support group for?
Everyone who at times struggles with their emotional experiences. Someone who finds it difficult to express themselves and would want to understand how they can better deal with their emotional challenges.
