No Breath No Life, Know Breath Know Life

200 Claremont Ave

An introduction to the Art of Living’s Happiness Program. This workshop includes ancient yogic breathing techniques, meditation and relaxation. By incorporating all these beautiful facets we are able to look deep beyond the level of the physical body and really sharpen our sensitivity and awareness of subtler levels of existence. Practice of the same cultivates a more healthy and happy lifestyle. Beyond mere inhalation and exhalation to stay alive, proper breathing has been proven to relieve physical discomfort, to de-stress, to relax the body and calm the mind. Alternative health care practitioners will even go so far as to say that the breath can actually eliminate diseases and toxins, not only acting as a preventive but also as a cure. Then of course there are legions of meditators that acknowledge the breath as the key to ,spiritual awakening, the incontrovertible link between the body and the mind. “Observe your breath see how different it is when you are happy or sad.” Manage your breath, and you manage your life. In this session, participants would be guided by a trained instructor through a series of precise breathing exercises, Meditation and more. Also in the mix are group conversations on living life to the fullest, yoga and self-exploration.

Many people say they find it hard to make time for meditation, and when they do, they struggle to quieten their mind. Save yourself years of struggle. The Happiness Program’s specialized breathing technique, the Sudarshan Kriya, quickly quietens the mind and makes meditation easy. In fact, people who’ve practiced other meditation techniques for decades tell us that the workshop's breathing technique reliably takes them to the deepest places of meditation, that used to be rare peak experiences.
