The Art of Living Course
The Art of Living course combines the kriya with meditation and teaches how to observe the mind, to live in gratitude and to discard expectations. The Art of living workshop also provides a value-based framework to life and tools with which to build the superstructure. The benefits of the Art of living workshop include stress reduction, a resurgence of vitality, mental clarity and joy of living. Those who attend the Art of living course routinely report relief in respiratory and spinal disorders, diabetes and heart problems. The program has been acclaimed by the World Health Organization. The workshops are organized under the aegis of the Vyakti Vikas Kendra (VVK), which has over 200 centers in India. The centers are managed by 70-odd Art of living teachers trained by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar , most working on an honorary basis.
