Art of Living’s Happiness Program

Art of Living’s Happiness Program

The start of a year is the best time to make a new beginning. Especially if your resolutions include discovering and fulfilling your true potential.
Through The Happiness Program you’ll learn practical and powerful  techniques that will enable you to gain a greater vision of who you are and benefit you for the rest of your life. The centerpiece of The Happiness Program is Sudarshan Kriya, or SKY breathing meditation, a powerful breathing technique that uses specific, natural rhythms to not only release stress at the deepest level, but also balance and integrate mind, body and heart.
SKY breathing meditation may not be the only means to wellness in body and awareness in the mind, but it sure is one of the easiest techniques I know.
So effortless, it doesn’t require directing or ‘watching’ the mind, and always effective – even when mind is busy or upset. Ask about research conducted by 70+ published studies showing numerous benefits. Even better, find out for yourself why 370+ million people around the world practice it.

Spirituality & God: Discussion Group

As we are on the cusp of a new year, with new hopes and aspirations, we thought it may be a good idea to start a discussion group focused on Spirituality & God.  This would be an informal discussion group, not particularly aligned to any belief system/guru/society or anything of that kind, but an open forum where :
– We can openly and freely discuss noble spiritual concepts and ideas of all kinds in a friendly and positive environment
– Discuss or share spiritual books, articles, videos, etc
– Ask questions/critique in a “non-threatening” and respectful environment
– Listen to spiritual experiences, share spiritual techniques/practices that worked
– Explore avenues to extend help to those in need around us
– And ultimately evolve as better human beings!
For now, we just call it  as Neo-Spirituality..We just want to have fun talking & loving God, in a less “loaded” environment!
If this idea resonates with you and if you would like to meet up/discuss with like-minded individuals or share any content to the group, please send a note to spiritualityne…@g…com   or join our FB group:
Happy New Year 2018!
