Yes, I am awesome

About Flying Elephants

A workshop designed to help you take flight with any weight.
Teen years are all about having boundless, seemingly never-ending energy. Help teach your child how to channelize that energy, into productive pursuits that will benefit them in the long run.
The Flying Elephants Workshop for Teens is fun, a 3-day, mind and brain empowerment workshop for 12 to 18 year olds. We use cutting edge techniques NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and Transactional Analysis in a fun and engaging way to prepare your teen for a successful and happy life as an adult.
If you’re wondering why your child needs a workshop to teach them how to think and behave, when you yourself didn’t need one growing up… That’s a great question.

The circumstances are different.
The rules are different.
So the instruction manual has to be different.

Being teen today can at times be very frustrating. A few issues that have increased in complexity since you were their age are:
  • The technology and the unique complications they bring with them.
  • The amount of information we require them to retain and reproduce at school has quadrupled.
  • The goals set for them by their parents and educators have become much more ambitious, and therefore, much more stress-inducing than ever before.
  • The reported amount of stress, an average 8th grader faces in day to day life, is significantly more than their counterparts from 15 or even 10 years ago.
  • The violence, gore and unpleasantness the average Indian teenager is apathetic to, would have been downright frightening to children of the same age growing up it say... the 80’s.
  • None of this is their fault. This is the world we live in.
  • The best gift you can give your children this summer are the skills to tackle these newfound dilemmas with grace and maturity.
  • Skills we believe they will carry with them - into a well adjusted and successful adulthood

Testimonials

Vijay, 12th, MCTM School, Chennai

I came to my first MindFresh Flying Elephants workshop, when I was in 8th Standard. Due to the reason that I was lean and short, I had been constantly put down by people around me. I was very sad about it and so, wanted to anything possible to come out of it.

That was when I was put into this Magical workshop called Flying Elephants by my father. It was truly a life turning event for me. This workshop made my confidence level to rise, as a result of which, my grades have been only A and A+ from that time. Hence, gift your children with an experience of MindFresh and Kirtanya and you would certainly be glad for helping them fly.

Puru Mathur, 12th, St. John's Residential School, Chennai

With Flying Elephants, a lot of unanswered questions in my teens were answered. I was able to see the blessings that I had in my life than to complain about things that I did not have. I lost my father when I was very young, but had a mom who was strong enough to support herself and me.

Today, I am a happy teen, focusing on my strengths, concentrating on things over which I have control. I wish MindFresh had a school, where I can come fill my cup every day!

Deekshith, 12th, Hiranandani Upscale School

Before Flying Elephants, I was just a normal teen. I had everything, parent’s support, good school, above average performance and friends in school. Yet, I could take back something extra-ordinary from the workshop. It was the knowledge about myself, my true potential and the way to go forward.
Today, after an year of my first experience with MindFresh, I have a clear plan about the path I want to travel. I am no longer lead by chance, I have clear choices in my mind and proceed on the path of excellence.

The world was not like this, when we parents were teen. We had our own challenges but nothing of the sort our teens face now. An average teen spends more time on gadgets than he spends for his overall improvement. Parents take a back seat when compared with peers. The distractions and negativity is more aggressive than positivity and focus.
Flying Elephants is here to empower the mind & brain of your teenager to cross through this most important and toughest period of their life. A teen who is able to pass through this phase without much damage has greater chances of success in life. Any mistake made in at this time may have an irreparable damage throughout their life.
Why should you take a chance with your teenager’s life? Why can’t we as parents go an extra mile to empower them with necessary strategies to handle life.
Take a chance to introduce them to the world of self-love and confidence.
The workshop is an intense program for reprogramming the mind and brain. Hence the entry level is 13 years.  
The upper limit is 20 years. Additionally, competitive exam aspirants, UPSE, TNPSCE, Bank Exam aspirants, CA and CWA candidates can participate and benefit.
The workshop will be conducted in mix of Tamil & English. Tamil is used to connect with the audience better and make them feel comfortable. The training materials will be given in English only. If you can follow both tamil and english, you will feel very comfortable throughout the program.
Understanding both the languages is mandatory for the registration of workshop, though proficiency is not required. If you do not know Tamil, you might need to wait for an only english workshop that is conducted once in a year.   
The workshop does not follow school model. Our training methodology is time tested and designed based on cutting edge neuroscience and transactional analysis. Moreover, we do not bore the kids with advices or lectures.
The classes will be highly interactive, insightful, with relevant exercises, games and fun filled activities.
We do have an exclusive session for the parents at the end of the three day workshop. It is a compulsory session for both the mother and father to participate. The session is aimed at creating a support system for your children to be their best.
Making an emotional connect with your teen might work magic for the persistent problems that you have been facing with your teen!   
The general issues that you could be facing with your teens could be classified as:
  • Age related – Issues that a typical teenager faces in terms of distractions, relationship stress, rebellious attitude, high risk adventures, etc.,
  • Situation related – Tough times to overcome, like a recent death in the family, separation between parents, change of school or city etc.,  
  • Pregnancy related – Emotional imbalance due to excessive fear, stress, anxiety disorders, learning disabilities, ADHD, etc.,
It is easy to work on problems related to the first two. Once we correct their belief systems and equip them with necessary knowledge, the age and the situation related issues get solved. But pregnancy related issues needs a lot of time and effort. It requires consistent effort from the participant, parents and intervention from a therapist.
Conversely, the workshop is a must attend if your pregnancy was tough and you have passed a lot of negative emotions in your teen. Since this experience might give them a picture of what they are fighting against and the knowledge about long battle to achieve success.
Regarding constant reinforcements, we conduct regular follow up classes both online and offline and please enroll your teens for the workshops without missing them. This will supply them the energy and clarity to stay on track.  
We do connect with our participants by sending them interesting articles to read through emails. We also have our blogging space www.theflyingelephants.in where we keep posting inspiring content. We also fix a webinar once in a month for the participants to listen to Kirtanya and other resourceful people. We do conduct higher level workshops in which, the participants can participate and get trained in various other areas - like goals for teens, communication, focus for the boards etc., each aiming at different skill sets.
Our charges for this 3 full day workshop is INR 13,200 +18% Service Tax.
The course fee is inclusive of Registration kit, training materials, stationery, parents session, morning and evening snacks for all three days.

The human brain has enormous potential to learn. Every day some research reveals more information about the brain, than we ever know about its plasticity.
Peak learning does not happen in the conventional ways.  At Flying Elephants, we teach brain friendly ways of studying. They understand the language of the brain and learn in a way, that they never had thought possible. The memory skills help them place the information in their long term memory. Effective ways of reading, revision, concentration are taught and the students are encouraged to test the methods during the workshop itself. Powerful and effective meditations and NLP exercises are dealt for improvement in confidence, courage and concentration.
We teach the science of emotions and how they get triggered. Anger, Fear, Stress and there are loads of negative emotions that our teens get attracted to, on a daily basis. At Flying Elephants, we help them identify, handle and change their mental state and accompanied emotions, irrespective of the situations they face. We take help from the NLP Techniques to shift mental states.
Many limitations about the teen’s personality are belief related. Shyness, being an introvert, unable to converse with people, are all at the end of the day, what they view as their personality. Once they realise this and transcend these limited beliefs they are no longer limited. They gain the flexibility to be whatever they wish to be! That’s exactly what we want to achieve in Flying Elephants.
This course will help him move from good to the best. Any body has a scope for improvement and needs a kick, to get out of the comfort zone!
Once a participant, who was already very successful participated in the program and made this statement. “Now I know why I am successful. It feels so nice to get know the secret and it gives me immense confidence that was not an accident, and I can replicate this success in areas in which I would not have otherwise done!”
