Yoga and Positive Thinking

One of the main reason of stress is our negative feeling and thoughts. Negativities are prevalent nowadays in our busy, fast pace life. Our interactions with others seem to be more negative than bringing comfort and joy and positive thinking.

Our minds are saturated and our sensitivity numbed by an overload of information and the confusion and despair that comes from media over-saturation. In this atmosphere, it is difficult for us to access our innate positive and joyful nature, and to remember the goodness of people and the grace of God.

Having lost faith, we doubt our path and worry about where the world is going and what will become of us. We need to see clearly and take a break from the business of life to recharge and reconnect with the beauty and meaning of life. We cannot change the external, but we can change our outlook about it by starting to practice Positive Thinking.

We cannot redo the past and it is not helpful to worry about the future; but we can live in the solid present and make the best of it.

In these Positive Thinking courses and retreats there will be workshops and lectures specifically on:

  • the power of thoughts
  • how to be in the present
  • how to turn negative feelings and thoughts to positive feelings
