The Art of Living has been bringing people together for the last 33 years in 5 continents around the world. Founded by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the Art of Living runs programs and workshops around the world that use a revolutionary breathing technique, the Sudarshan Kriya®, which is traditionally understood to use specific rhythms of the breath to eliminate stress, support the various organs and systems within the body, transform overpowering emotions and restore peace of mind.
These sessions are about Practical Wisdom for getting the most out of Life:
Breathing Techniques to eliminate stress and tension
Skills for improving relationships at home and at work
Tools to handle your mind and negative emotions
Art of Living sessions give participants the practical knowledge and techniques to unlock their deepest potential and bring fullness to life. Each participant 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.
What is the Art of Living?
“Be in the present moment. If you live fully now, tomorrow will take care of itself. If you are happy now, the past will not torment you. That is the Art of Living.”
Founded in 1981 by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, The Art of Living is a not-for-profit, educational, and humanitarian NGO engaged in stress-management and service initiatives. The organization operates globally in 152 countries.
The organization's activities are guided by Sri Sri’s philosophy of peace: “Unless we have a stress-free mind and a violence-free society, we cannot achieve world peace". To help individuals get rid of stress and experience inner peace, The Art of Living offers stress-elimination programs which include breathing techniques, meditation and yoga. These programs have helped millions around the world to overcome stress, depression, and violent tendencies.
The Art of Living has spread peace across communities through diverse humanitarian projects, including conflict resolution, disaster relief, sustainable rural development, empowerment of women, prisoner rehabilitation, education for all, and environmental sustainability.
