Within you lies a vast storehouse of unused potential waiting only to be discovered. In the Art of Happiness Retreat, this potential is released and you acquire a clearer vision of who you truly are. You discover that you have the power to create a joyful life with purpose, and you acquire the confidence to go beyond your limiting beliefs and the ability to live a deeply satisfying life.
In today’s demanding world full of distractions, our mind is held captive either by the past or by the future. Happiness, however, lies in the here and now. But it is impossible to experience it when we are regretting the past or anxious about the future. In the Art of Happiness Program, you discover your unlimited inner power and freedom—not as a concept, but as a personal experience.
What makes the Art of Happiness Retreat so unique is the Sudarshan Kriya, a powerful process that uses specific breathing rhythms. The Sudarshan Kriya, a time-honored practice based on the ancient knowledge of the Vedas, fosters ongoing personal growth and helps bring about an effortless release of stress, fatigue and negative emotions, such as anger, frustration and depression, leaving us feeling calm, energized, relaxed and therefore better able to focus.
Independent research has shown that the Sudarshan Kriya and the practices that accompany it have the following effects :
- They reduce the level of cortisol, the stress hormone.
- They relieve anxiety and depression (light, moderate and severe).
- They improve brain functions (increase mental focus, calmness and recovery from stressful stimuli).
