Positive Thinking for Self-Renewal
with Hamsa Chaitanya
August 5 - 7, 2022
Renew your outlook on life with the ancient tools of Yoga. Learn practical and accessible Yoga techniques to open the heart, to generate positive thought patterns and to overcome negative tendencies. Our minds are saturated with information overload, especially during the current Covid-19 crisis. In this atmosphere, it is difficult for us to access our innate positive and joyful nature, and to remember the goodness of human beings and the grace of God. The Positive Thinking course delivers practical Yoga tools to recharge and reconnect with the beauty and meaning of your life. We can not change the external but we can change our outlook towards it.
We cannot rewrite the past and it is not helpful to worry about the future, but we can live in the solid present and recognize this moment as golden opportunity. Workshops and lectures specifically on the power of thought, how to live in the present, and how to turn negative feelings and thoughts to positive feelings and positive actions, how to manage stress and respond positively to challenges. Yoga psychology and philosophy have a wealth of techniques and information that will help us to cope with this fast-paced modern living and changing conditions.
