Art of Living in Short

The Art of Living is a non-profit organisation founded in 1981 by the world-renowned humanitarian and spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Its core value is to see a stress free and violence-free society. We serve society by strengthening the individual. Those who are free from stress and experience inner peace spread it to their environment. Art of Living offers effective educational and self-development programs and tools that facilitate the elimination of stress and foster deep and profound inner peace, happiness, and well-being. These practical courses are open to everyone and have already helped millions of people resolve stress, depression, and inner conflicts.

"Taking our lives to a higher level, living our lives to the full".

That is the inspiring and healing message of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and The Art of Living.
