Through this workshop, participants have found long- lasting relief from the stresses and strains of their lives and have gained an unshakable sense of balance and joy.
Happiness and peace can only be experienced in the present moment, yet the mind has a tendency to swing between regrets about the past and anxiety about the future. This constant vacillation is a primary cause of stress. It reduces the ability to think clearly, complicates relationships, clouds creativity, disturbs our sleep, and drains energy. The breath has proven to be a powerful tool for releasing stress, renewing the spirit, and restoring balance, health, and energy to the body, mind and emotions.

Experience Peace of Mind
Much of the stress or limitations in life come from vacillating between regret about the past or worry about the future. And yet, the present is the only place that happiness can be experienced. A remarkable feature of the course is that participants are able to re-discover the present moment- not as a concept but as a direct experience.
The centerpiece of this course is Sudarshan Kriya, a powerful breath-oriented technique that eliminates stress and brings one completely into the present moment. One of breath's great secrets is that for every emotion there is a corresponding rhythm in the breath. Sudarshan Kriya utilizes this connection between the breath and emotions, and the whole system is brought into balance. The results are tangible and immediate.
Simple Techniques for Daily Life
Participants leave with simple but powerful techniques they can practice everyday, and an extraordinary weekly group practice is available in many areas. These practices are sacred treasures that grow in value over the years, helping the benefits continue to blossom in daily life. The Art of Living Course has been enjoyed by people of all traditions, religions, and walks of life, in universities, churches, governments, businesses, prisons, war zones, community rooms, and living rooms. The course is complete in itself and is also a foundation for other Art of Living programs.
