The Art of Living Part 2 Program

The Art of Living Advanced Program usually offered in residence and provides optimal conditions for going deep within, quieting our mental chatter, and experiencing profound rest and inner silence. This program builds upon the Sudarshan Kriya breathing technique offered in the Art of Living (Part 1) program.

The practice of silence – of consciously withdrawing our energy and attention from outer distractions has been used in different traditions throughout time as a pathway to physical, mental, and spiritual renewal. By participating in various course processes specifically designed to take us beyond our usually active minds, we experience an extraordinary sense of peace and renewed vitality that we carry home with us and into daily lives.
