Maitreyi in Sanskrit means ‘the friendly one’. This is also our search in both the outer and inner worlds — a relationship to communicate, validate and navigate the different phases and stages of life. In the Indic Vedic tradition, Maitreyi was the Indian philosopher who engaged in dialogues on self-knowledge.

The dialogues we exchange give life to the process of communication. In addition to outer ones, deeper understanding of ourselves requires us to have conscious inner dialogue with the various parts of ourselves. 

This focussed workshop is for women to examine deeply their own inner world of words / attitudes / and belief systems. In a circle of women, we will explore and build an inner relationship within that can support our journey. In the process of building our capacity for inner dialogue, we will explore aspects of our socialisation, inter-generational attitudes and belief systems. 

Workshop Outcomes

  • What is an inner dialogue and how to distinguish it from (as also relate to) external ones? 

  • How maladaptive inner dialogues hinder psychological wellness.

  • Explore the diversity of voices within and move from monologue to dialogue in the inner world.

  • Embodied understanding of words and how they imprint us.

  • Examine the quality of external personal relationship through inner dialogues.

  • Developing healthy personal boundaries.

Who should attend

  • Basic criteria: women over age of 18.

  • If you end up feeling drained or confused with the multiple voices and the words i am over thinking comes to you easily.

  • If you are exploring and experimenting with the diversity of your unique self-expression. 

  • If you have trouble with navigating personal and social boundaries.


The workshop is anchored by Divya Sankaran, who invites women to explore their inner wholeness through conscious embodied inner dialogues.
