 More about Art of Breathing Course
'Breath' is a prime factor for good health and the most important source of energy. But it is also the most overlooked aspect and rated much lower down in our list of priorities. Breath purifies and energises our systems and delivers subtle but very powerful energy to every single cell of our body. Come, experience and discover the secret of BREATH. Learn how to live life to its fullest potential.

And of course, Know breathKnow life!
An Inner transformation to last a Lifetime
The Art of Breathing Course gives participants the practical knowledge and techniques to unlock their deepest potential and bring fullness to life. Whether feeling happy and successful or feeling stressed out from either fear or disappointments or poor health: every participant is taken care of on the course and he or she goes back feeling lighter and also has learnt effective tools and  techniques for releasing mental and physical stresses. Thus he or she achieves improved health, enhanced energy status, greater peace of mind, deeper self-knowledge, higher awareness and abundant joy.

What you will learn on the Course?
Sudarshan Kriya ***
'Sudarshan Kriya' is the masterpiece, a jewel in the crown of all the Art of Living Courses. It is a transformational Breathing Technique which is learnt by more than 20 million people the world over. The bye-product of the course is that it integrates body-mind-spirit and thus restoring the natural harmony and hence it is also healing.

For more on Sudarshan Kriya visit:
* Other skills for handling negative emotions and situations:
* Insight into the laws that govern mind and emotions
* Practical wisdom for improving efficiency at work and relationships
* Stretching and low-impact Yoga for health, improved circulation and body for leaving it refreshed and relaxed.

Experience Peace of Mind
Much of the stresses or limitations in life come from our own mind vacillating between regret of the past or worry about the future. And yet the present is the only place where we  experience the whole life. A remarkable feature of the course is that all the participants are able to re-discover the present moment not just as a concept but as a direct experience.

Simple Techniques for Daily Life
Participants leave with a package of simple but powerful techniques to practise at home daily. There is also the extraordinary group practice known as the weekly follow ups. They are held at various places in cities through out the world. So they will be able to remain in contact. It is specially made available for those who have already finished the course. They can join their nearest local group and refresh and reinforce their practices.
These practices are sacred treasures that have grown in value over the years enabling us to enhance its benefits and add to our continual blossoming.

Sudarshan Kriya  ***
The masterpiece of the Art of Living Courses: "The Sudarshan Kriya" is a powerful technique based on breath so it is called a healing breath or Sudarshan KriyaIt incorporates specific natural rhythms of breath into our system to release stresses and bring the mind to be in the present moment. The course also includes other Breathing techniques, Meditations, low-impact Yoga and effective skills for dealing with challenging situations and emotions.
Several independent studies on numerous benefits of the course both on the mental and physical health have been published in the international peer-reviewed journals and confirm what participants commonly report. This course has been enjoyed the most by university students, people from all walks of life and traditions, religions, churches, governments, businesses, prisons and war zones.

"Break your Walls": First Israeli Arab-Jewish and Palestinian Peace Camp at the European Art of Living Center in Bad Antogast - Participation for international guests still possible

Note: If you are not able to see the image below, you need to click on 'Display images' in your mail

A very unique course programme will take center stage at Art of Living's European center in Germany from 10 - 16 April 2012.
The first 'Break your Walls' Peace Camp will see approx 25 young people travel in from Israel and Palestine.
The delegation from Israel will consist of both Jews and Arabs.
Joining them will be a group of Europeans. The participants, aged 18-35, will be arriving from various traditions, cultures and religions.

During the weeklong program, participants will explore interactive group processes, relaxation exercises and cultural activities to bridge differences. They will learn new ways to cope better with stress, conflict, negative emotions and how to deal with pressure.
The camp's programme is especially designed to strengthen human values and develop inner peace within each individual, thus spreading the harmony in the diversity and creating excellence in life.

"Break your Walls" is part of the Wall Project initiated by Dr. Dafna Paz from the Art of Living in Israel.
The Wall project was created in 2004 to help the Israeli population who live on the border with Gaza. At that time and during the years, they were suffering from a massive bombing attack from Gaza. Adults, youth and kids are under stress and AOL Israel was helping with the Art of Living trauma relief workshops
The aim of the Break your Walls project now is to break our individual and group mental wall, and hopefully one day this will help in breaking the physical wall.

If you would like to send participants from your countries to join this Peace Camp, please contact Camille on
