Facilitators training in South Africa – August 2015

Healthcare workers from all parts of South Africa and neighbouring countries of Botswana and Mozambique came together at Kempton Park, Johannesburg for a VIHASA facilitator training from 27-30 August 2015.

Thirty participants, the majority of whom were healthcare professionals, learnt about the origins and use of the VIHASA programme and spent a whole day working on the Inner Values module. The group enjoyed experiencing the seven learning tools – there was much fun and laughter as teams of facilitators honed the skills of creativity by producing a minute advertisement for VIHASA.

The participants also learnt about feedback skills, which they then practised with their teams. On the final day they looked at how they could share the knowledge and experiences they’d had from the training in their working world.

As part of the holistic approach, each morning began with yoga stretches, walks and Raja Yoga meditation, an optional side to the retreat that the participants greatly appreciated.

Many rich and nurturing conversations occurred between the trainings and reinforced the participants’ purpose in attending. All in all, the training was a great success! For many this was the first-time they had determinedly taken time out with to do something for themselves.

Social Media Survey

Dear All,


Hope you have had an enjoyable summer. 


We are in the process of reviewing the Janki Foundation's social media content, which includes our website. 


Studies have indicated that different healthcare professionals have variable use of social media platforms, and they will make recommendations to patients or colleagues based on their confidence and reliability of information. In the current climate of healthcare crisis and information overload, we would benefit from an understanding on how spirituality-related information is accessed by healthcare professionals. This will enable us to focus our messages, events and outreach. 


We would greatly welcome your valuable thoughts through this survey. It is anonymous and will take less than 10 minutes to complete. 


Thank you.

Best wishes, 

JF Social Media Review Group
