Peace and Harmony in the Black Forest - Navaratri 10 days Silence course in German Ashram


Nava means nine and Ratri is made up of Ra - night and Tri meaning the three aspects of our life, body, mind and soul.  So Navaratri means giving rest to all the three aspects of our life for nine days.

Navaratri will, of course, be celebrated in Bangalore ashram this October but there is also the opportunity for a great alternative! You can join a ten days silence retreat in the quiet and beauty of the Black Forest in Bad Antogast, Germany. Here you can enjoy deep rest and introspection and for ten day nurture your body, mind and soul.

The teacher on this very special course will be Christopher Kiran Byrt whose skills need no introduction to the AOL Family. The only requirement is that you have completed three Art of Silence (Part 2 or 3) courses.

The course starts with satsang on the 30th of October and finishes at lunchtime on the 9th November. Share Navaratri with the Art of Living One World Family at this special time. After the fantastic celebrations in Berlin every country in Europe is channeling their energies towards creating a peaceful, stress free world.  We all know, this world starts with us.

So take time out in Bad Antogast to enjoy time with yourself, with all the peace and harmony that this wonderful mountain retreat has to offer. Balance body with delicious food and the beauties of nature, mind with quiet, meditation and knowledge so skillfully taught by Christopher Kiran Byrt and spirit with a celebration that is shared all around the world by people like you seeking peace and harmony.

For more information and the application form please call us at 0049780497390 or email at info@artofliving.de

With Love,

Your Bad Antogast Team

Art Of Living Takes To The Streets Of London With Its Message Of Non Violence

Jai guru dev all,

Humanitarian organization Art of Living is leading its volunteers to the streets of London to offer post-traumatic courses to Londoners left feeling vulnerable and shocked after the riots, which began in Tottenham on Saturday.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar*, founder of the organization, has expressed his concern over the riots stating that; "Young people should become more constructive, not destructive, in working towards a stress-free and violence-free society," and suggests "the nation comes together in meditation and prayer for victims of this unrest."

Through the Art of Living Foundation, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has been instrumental in providing and conducting trauma relief workshops to victims of man-made disasters such as the 9/11 New York attacks, Madrid train bombings, London underground bombings, and natural disasters such as Haiti, Hurricane Katrina and the more recent Japanese earthquake. The workshops have also been effective in reducing trauma levels and stress in war-torn areas such as Kosovo and Iraq.

Lets make YES! a permanent institution

Buckle up: We are in the midst of preparing for a quantum leap.

The YES! – We Can Course will be our stepping stone!

All of you have heard about this course and many of you have taken it. We aim to become a permanent institution in major European cities. We want to be there for young people who are facing problems. We want to have fun together, laugh, dance, sing, play music and give them support … It's a huge project that will need a lot of assistance and funding. But first we will need your assistance in finding a real cool name …

What we are looking for is a name that will give us street credibility in the eyes of young people in Europe's capitals, something grounded, something that goes down well with them, simple, but outside the box.

Do you have any ideas? It needs to match our plans but should also have the capacity to suit a new European youth movement.

We are looking forward for your idea.

Christoph Koellner
