Part 2

The Art of Silence Course provides optimal conditions for going deep within, quieting our mental chatter, and experiencing deep rest and inner peace. The practice of silence – of consciously withdrawing our energy and attention from outer distractions – has been used in different traditions throughout time as a pathway to physical, mental, and spiritual renewal. By participating in various course processes specifically designed to take us beyond our usually active "monkey minds", we experience an extraordinary sense of peace and renewed energy that we carry home with us.

 

The course features:

  • Rejuvenating yoga
  • Two to three days of guided silence practice
  • Unique guided meditations designed by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
  • Advanced breathing techniques which can also be practiced at home after the course
  • Advanced insight on the laws governing our mind and emotions.
  • The course is typically held as a residential retreat in a place of natural beauty and tranquility. It's no wonder that many course participants refer to it as the ideal vacation for body, mind, and spirit

 

Prerequisite

The Art of Living Part I Course (Art of Breathing)

The degree to which stress unduly influences our lives is generally underestimated. Often the mind clings on to anger, guilt, or regret about the past, or is plagued by anxiety and worry about the future. This oscillation of the mind causes tension and stress both for us and for the people around us and leads to reduced effectiveness in action. Breath is the link between body and mind, and thus is the key to handling our mind and negative emotions, and releasing our true potential at work, at home, and at leisure.

 

Course elements include:

  • Practical knowledge to deal with the daily challenges of life
  • Interactive exercises
  • Yoga, stretching, and relaxation exercises
  • Meditation and powerful breathing techniques
  • Sudarshan Kriya, a unique breathing technique

 

Just some of the benefits course graduates mention:

  • Reduced stress
  • More joy and enthusiasm
  • Improved efficiency and productivity (at work and at home)
  • Greater self-esteem
  • Enhanced health and sense of well-being
  • Improved interpersonal skills
