The HAPPINESS PROGRAM is a combination of meditation, knowledge and action
Meditation - With a little help, anyone can meditate
When people hear about meditation, they almost always say either they have never tried it, or they were not able to do it. Someone may have told you that thoughts were supposed to go away, but when you closed your eyes, more thoughts than ever came up. With Sudarshan Kriya, meditation can happen effortlessly.
Sudarshan Kriya - Breathing that takes you into meditation
An incredible breathing technique, which takes you into a deep state of meditation, whether or not you have any previous experience of meditation. Millions of people have done it, and the results are incredible. Most people feel deeply relaxed, renewed, as if a weight has been lifted. And anyone can do it. Sudarshan Kriya is the highlight of a series of yoga and meditation techniques you learn on the HAPPINESS PROGRAM to give you more energy, greater peace of mind, better focus, and so onâ€¦
Knowledge - A little self knowledge goes a long way. On HAPPINESS PROGRAM you get a lot.
Itâ€™s amazing what we dont notice about ourselves day in and day out. We get stuck in the same patterns, and we often miss simple truths. For example have you noticed that you often remember an insult more than a compliment? How about the fact that you feel so good after being sick? Sure on some level we have noticed all these things, but with a little awareness and wisdom, we can look deeper into these patterns of the mind and can be much more free and relaxed, enjoying the present far more. HAPPINESS PROGRAM brings awareness to things we have all been aware of on some level, and brings us to a whole new level of understanding.
Action - HAPPINESS PROGRAM gives you the strength to do great things in the world.
Sometimes we have an idea that people who meditate just sit around and dont do a whole lot. They are very peaceful, but what about people who have a lot of ambition, who want to do great things in the world? HAPPINESS PROGRAM is as much about action as it is about meditation. Just like to shoot an arrow forward, we must first pull the string back, to really engage in dynamic action we need deep rest. Meditation gives us this rest. Then once the mind is clear, once we are strong in our mind and emotions, we will have the courage and confidence to take on big things, and do a lot for the world.
