Get Involved - The Gupta Program

There are many fun ways you can get involved with the Gupta Program

Volunteering is a great way to give back to the Program at the same time as prioritizing your own Retraining. Volunteers are fully supported in their role and are always encouraged to pace and place their health first.

I have never worked with such a caring, tolerant, flexible and supportive team before. I am truly grateful to be able to be a part of this team.

Volunteer Roles Within The Gupta Program Forum

Our loving community forum is an exclusive and private space for Retrainers to learn more about the program, share their successes and help support others.

There are 2 primary ways you can get involved within our Facebook forum. Both roles are flexible, fit around your schedule. and are a great way to give back while supporting your own Retraining. You dont need any prior experience and will receive full training from our team.

Forum Moderator

Moderation is an enjoyable and essential role in the forum. Moderators have delegated authority to ensure that the forum runs within the guidelines Ashok has created to support recovery. The role also helps to keep the forum the wonderful, caring and supportive place it is known to be.

A moderator's role can include:

  • Deciding if pending posts meet forum guidelines and allow or decline them on those criteria.
  • Delete comments that are not within the ethos of the forum.
  • Contributing to discussion
  • Liaising with forum volunteers about group files and albums.

Forum Volunteer

A Forum volunteer is a fun and flexible role, enabling you to contribute in a way that suits your lifestyle. You make your own hours and choose which tasks you would personally like to be involved with.

A Forum Volunteer's role can include:

  • Spotting and copying suitable comments/posts into our informative group files
  • Adding to the forum's photo albums
  • Respond to posts, questions and comments within the forum.

It's a wonderful way to give back to the forum, be part of a supportive team and make new friends.

To find out more information, please contact one of our moderators who can work with you to determine if the role is suitable for you.

Being a volunteer for the Gupta forum has helped me to anchor and strengthen so many parts of retraining! From pacing, to discussing issues regarding illness and recovery; also, feeling joy for others’ accomplishments, and learning and honoring my limitations. It is teaching me better boundaries; how to nurture my empathic self while in a social atmosphere; and so much more. And this is my first experience in forming deep, healthy relationships with others. It’s a supportive environment to begin to spread one’s wings and get ready for reintroduction to life, and all of its unique nuances.
It is a wonderful model of how work life can function well, as everyone is understanding and supportive. And - the hours are super flexible! I know now that, when I reintegrate fully, I will do so in a balanced way. That really is priceless to me, an extra bonus of the program, if you will.

If you would like to give back to the Gupta Program but are uncertain how to do it, becoming a forum volunteer is a great place to start. FVs keep an eye open for posts or comments that violate group policies and send a heads-up to the mods. They also keep a look-out for helpful and insightful posts or comments - we have a wealth of group wisdom accumulating in the files and photo album section. And my GP practice has deepened and strengthened a lot as a result of being part of the Mod/FV team.

oth moderators and volunteers have been more than welcoming and supportive and I'm actually deepening my Gupta practice by being a part of their circle. I've received so much from doing Gupta Program (for example, the ability to be with challenging situations without overreacting, which is a huge gift) and absolutely love being able to participate in this expanded way. What a beautiful blessing!"

Supporting Relationships

Healthy relationships are a fundamental part of our wellbeing and like everything in life, are sometimes well-balanced, sometimes a little shaky and sometimes require adjusting. It takes a special kind of someone to help another along their healing journey, especially when support is a continued need.  It’s not like having a cold or waiting for …

man playing trumpet


Often people shy away from “blowing their own trumpet” (i.e. talking about their good points, be it personality, looks, achievements etc.) When I was a form tutor of a group who were applying to university I used to spend a lot of time persuading them to write about their good points on the application forms. …

Pacing and Boundaries (and Struggling or Not)

This phrase cropped up when a friend and I were discussing pacing (Gupta style.) It made me think about boundaries, especially. Boundaries can be like fences around a vegetable garden. The fence keeps out those animals which could eat the veg before we harvest them. Like Peter Rabbit in the Beatrix Potter stories. My boundaries …

I was thinking about Ashok’s F.E.A.R. definition: false evidence appearing real. Then my mind wandered around these 4 letters. What other “e” words could apply? e is for egg: My uncle used to place a false egg (made of china) in the nesting box to encourage his hens to lay. I’m not sure if it …

Parts To Partners

Recently there has been plenty of discussion about our parts. Which has got me musing away… My most recently calmed part was my achiever. Let’s call her Archy. Archy was deeply ingrained in my psyche, having been born into a family who had to win at everything, sport, academic studies, party games (why did we …

Gratitude and Loss

This morning I woke up feeling very grateful but also feeling sad. Yesterday I said my final goodbye to my long time companion, friend and family member, JessC. (A cross curly-coat retriever/border collie who came to me in February 2006, in her hour of need and mine too.) She was 15 years old yesterday and …

When exciting volunteer opportunities come up they are posted in the group and anyone interested can become involved if they choose to do so. There are no strict deadlines, the work is flexile and you will be fully supported by our volunteer coordinator.

Gupta Program Crowdfunding Campaign

We are pleased to announce our Crowdfunding Campaign to raise funds for a new study on the Gupta Program treatment for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS).

This independent study will be in association with a well-known independent clinic and research center that we are currently in talks with. Just think of the difference we can make together by definitively showing how effective Amygdala & Insula Retraining (AIR) can be at treating these conditions. Together we can help thousands more reclaim their Health and Happiness.


We Are Already Well On Our Way To Our Target But We Need Your Help

Target $200,000

(Amount Raised So Far $50,000)

We are so confident in the expected benefits of this approach that the Gupta Program will contribute $15,000 towards the study as a starting point.

Here Is How You Can Help And Get Involved

Please kindly pass on this information to others who might be interested.
