Every month Part 2 Course in German Ashram!!

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




Dear AOL Teachers and Organisers,
As you know, at the moment Bad Antogast is busy with preparations for our July Art of Silence courses with Sri Sri (taught by Swami Atmanand) and Puja courses with Bhanu Didi for which there is online registration at http://secure2.artofliving.org/courses

Even though we are focused on July events we are already planning the later courses and we are very happy to announce that starting already from August we will be organising Art of Silence (Part 2) courses every month, during every second weekend of the month. The duration of these courses will be adjusted to the busy schedules of modern life so they will be one day shorter - from Thursday 7.30 pm to Sunday 4 pm.
Here are the dates, every month, always the second week of the month e.i.:
9th August (7.30 pm) – 12th August ( 4 pm)
13th September (7.30 pm) – 16th September ( 4 pm)
11th October (7.30 pm) – 14th October ( 4 pm)

The dates of previously announced Art of Silence (Part 2) courses during the days free from work will be kept as well.

We will be very grateful to you for spreading this message in your countries. Thank you!

With Lots of Love,
Magda (on behalf of our Bad Antogast Team)

    1,500 kids to be trained in life-skills by AoL

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




    Bangalore, May 30(IANS) About 1,500 children from India, Singapore, Malyasia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will flock to the Art of Living (AoL) Foundation campus here Thursday to participate in 'Colours of Joy,' a four-day summer retreat.
    "Children from various countries will be trained in life-skills to face challenges and live a full life with a purpose. They will be taught yoga and meditation and how to participate in interactive sessions to handle peer pressure and exam stress," AoL founder Ravi Shankar said in a statement here late Tuesday.
    The children, in the 8-17 years age group, will also take part in a workshop where a bouquet of programmes will be conducted.
    "The four-day workshop will focus on the all-round growth of the children, helping them to overcome inhibitions, fears, achieve good health, enhance their confidence and creativity," Shankar said.
    The workshop will include a special interactive session in which the AoL founder will speak to the youngsters on topics like career, peer-pressure, choices in life, relationships, success and failure.
    "The workshop is designed to let the children bloom into confident and happy individuals. It will offer every child an opportunity to interact, share and experience different cultures and mind sets. They will be taught to see life in equanimity and to accept challenges and learn from different experiences," AoL faculty member Shreya Chugh said.
    Interactive sessions addressing personal and social challenges children face; games and fun-filled activities to promote team-spirit and alertness; and musical evenings are some of the other features of the workshop.
    In 'A time to go back to the roots', children will participate in special sessions on chanting, the Subhashitas, Gita, stories from Puranas, handicraft and pottery workshops, talks on organic farming, a trip to the cowshed and a discourse on the glory of India.
