Secaucus, NJ – March 8, 2011- The Art of Living Foundation, an international non-profit that offers stress reduction, meditation and self-development programs, is hosting Meditation & Yoga 2011 (MY 2011) in the presence of spiritual leader and humanitarian His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. This day- long program will feature unique and informative sessions giving participants the life skill to manage their mind and emotions, increase productivity, and bring balance into their lives. MY 2011 will be held on April 9th from 10 AM- 6:00 PM, at the Meadowlands Exposition Center at 355 Plaza Drive in Secaucus, NJ (MeditationAndYoga.us). MY 2011 will introduce techniques for de-stressing through a combination of yoga, meditation and breath-work. Practices will be contextualized through explanation of the ancient wisdom upon which they are based. Each session will incorporate innovative tools for calming the mind while also enhancing physical well-being. The negative impact of stress in the lives of Americans is vast. Over the course of the MY 2011 program, Sri Sri will discuss ways to mitigate stress through both a philosophical understanding of underlying causes, and strategies for increasing peace and contentment. “Spring is a time for renewal and rejuvenation. Sri Sri will be discussing the techniques to harmonize the mind and body through breath, so that individuals can achieve inner peace and strength to move ahead unshaken
by the events of life,” says Vikas Chawla, senior instructor at the Art of Living Foundation; NJ Chapter. While the definition of “wellness” is multi-faceted, for some it is associated only with physical health. However, health at the physical level is only one aspect of the wellness paradigm. Holistic health must integrate financial, family, social, emotional, and spiritual harmony as well. Though we cannot eliminate all of the stress-causing agents in our lives, we can equip ourselves to handle our own thought and behavior in a more effective manner, thus making ourselves truly resilient. In New Jersey alone, nearly 6,000 community members have benefited from the Foundation’s programs. Says one local course participant: “Since practicing the techniques taught by The Art of Living, I feel far more at home with myself and the world… The relationship with my inner self has increased immensely. [My world-view] has greater depth and perspective… Now all the dots connect in a cohesive way.” Join us for an inspiring evening with Sri Sri, and for a day dedicated to self- development and renewal.
