The art of living: working towards a better and more peaceful world

Living is an art that is learned and developed.

Today, we live in an environment that can easily lead us astray and leave us feeling overwhelmed by the stress of everyday life.

With an ever more demanding professional life and sometimes tumultuous relationships, we all want to be able to enjoy a moment of serenity, and a period of calm to catch our breath and rest our spirit.

Located in an enchanting setting in the heart of one of the most beautiful forests of the Mauricie region, the International Art of Living Center – Canada is one of the four major international places of contemplation of the Art of Living Foundation, which has been actively working towards creating a world without stress and without violence since 1981.

Plan your stay today in this haven of peace and serenity that will allow you to recharge your batteries and regain energy and enthusiasm.

Come and stay for a few days while enjoying our accommodation options or invite your friends and loved ones to a peaceful gathering in a magical setting.
