The Happiness Program combines breathing techniques, meditation, knowledge about the mind and how to manage negativity, as well as other interactive processes with ease and success in a stressful world. This course features Sudarshan Kriya™, a breathing technique that uses specific rhythms of breath to detoxify every cell of the body and infuse it with energy.
The Art of Meditation in Los Angeles, or Sahaj Samdhi, teaches you the basics of meditation. Sahaj is a Sanskrit word that means natural or effortless. Samadhi is a deep, blissful, meditative state. Sahaj Samadhi meditation is a natural, effortless system of meditation.
During these meditation classes in Los Angeles, the participant is taught to use a simple sound mentally which allows the mind to settle down and go within. When the mind and nervous system are allowed to repose a few moments in the profound silence, the blocks that clog the system and our progress gradually dissolve.
The Art of Living Foundation in Los Angeles offers two additional courses for graduates of the Happiness program: The Art of Silence, and weekly follow ups of Long Kriya in Los Angeles. The Art of Silence offers yoga classes in Los Angeles, Los Angeles meditation, as well as two to three days of guided silence practice, in addition to advanced breathing techniques, which can also be practiced at home after the course.
Follow up weekly Long Kriya courses in Los Angeles are offered for course graduates, as well. The follow-up sessions allow participants to practice the techniques learned in a group setting and under the supervision of a teacher. The group practice reinforces everything that has been taught in the course. These sessions are free of charge.
