The Art of Living Course gives participants the practical knowledge and techniques to unlock their deepest potential and bring fullness to life. Whether happy and successful or feeling
the stress of poor health, disappointments, or fear, every
participant is cared for and comes away lighter, with effective techniques for releasing mental and physical stress and increasing his or her health, energy, peace, self-knowledge, awareness, and joy.
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.
Simple Techniques for Daily Life
Participants leave with simple but powerful techniques they can practice every day, 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 masterpiece of the Art of Living Course is a powerful breathing-based technique called Sudarshan Kriya, or the
healing breath. Sudarshan Kriya incorporates specific natural rhythms of breath to release stress and bring the mind to the present moment. The course also includes other breathing techniques, meditation, low-impact yoga, and skills
for dealing effectively with challenging emotions and situations.
Several independent studies on the numerous mental and physical health benefits of the course have been
published in international peer-reviewed journals and confirm what participants commonly report.
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
“Though my yoga practice has long been essential to my well-being, since I began practicing Sudarshan Kriya, I feel lighter, as though I'm carrying less emotional baggage, while I feel a growing solidity at my core.” - Amy Weintraub, Author of Yoga for depression.
Benefits of the Course
The Art of Living Course teaches us how to have greater peace, energy and joy...for a lifetime. We have learned many skills at home and in school, but we have never been taught how to handle negative emotions like anger, sadness, fear etc. If we learn the skill to deal with our mind when these emotions arise, the quality of our lives can change significantly for the better. Through the power of the breath and ancient knowledge of the mind, the Art of Living course teaches us this skill.
Return To Joy
Our mind tends to vacillate between the past and the future. We are either regretting the past or anxious about the
future. However as we all know living in the present moment is the route to joy. Our mind is such that we cannot control it
in a direct manner. We cannot force it to be in the present moment. But we can influence our mind through the breath.
"Take a deep breath" is an age-old recommendation for relaxation. The Art of Living course takes this effect of breath on our minds and applies it in a very precise and powerful manner through the Sudarshan Kriya technique. Practice of this technique can bring our mind effortlessly into the present
moment. As this happens, we learn the ability to reduce the effects of negative emotions and return to our natural state
