The techniques rejuvenate the body and the mind. Participants can experience the peace of meditation in a natural and easy way.
The Art of Living programs, taught to millions of people all over the world, are effective in bringing about overall well-being. Based on ancient wisdom, the programs are made relevant for modern life.
Art of Living has been active in New Jersey for more than ten years. 6,000 people in New Jersey alone have benefited from the programs. It is a volunteer-based organization with courses held in fourteen cities of New Jersey. There are four main centers in New Jersey: in Metuchen, Jersey City, Mahwah and East Windsor.
Says one local course participant: “Since practicing the techniques taught by The Art of Living, I feel far more at home with myself and the world. The relationship with my inner self has increased immensely. [My world-view] has greater depth and perspective. Now all the dots connect in a cohesive way.” There are also special youth programs in New Jersey and New York area for children and teenagers. Through these community service programs, the youth, at a critical age, learn to manage their stress improving their grades and their relationships.
“Spring is a time for renewal and rejuvenation. Sri Sri will be discussing the techniques to harmonize the mind and body through yoga, breathing and meditation, so that individuals can achieve inner peace and strength to move ahead unshaken by the events of life, ” says Vikas Chawla, senior instructor of Art of Living and a resident of Somerset, New Jersey. Although we cannot eliminate all the causes of stress in our lives, we can learn to effectively handle our state of mind and our behavior, thus making ourselves truly resilient.
Join us for an inspiring evening with Sri Sri, and for a day dedicated to self-development and renewal.
