Sri Sri Ravi Shankar teaches us the basics of Meditation

Montrealers will be graced by the presence of Sri Sri Ravi Shakar July 12-14th. Otherwise referred to as “Sri Sri”, Guruji, or Gurudev. He is a humanitarian, spiritual leader, and an ambassador of peace. Not to be confused with the late great musician Ravi Shankar, his daughter, Anoushka Shankar is playing at the Montreal’s Jazz Fest 2018.

This is a rare opportunity to get the chance to learn from an acclaimed spiritual guide. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar will give us a brief look into the Vigyan Bhairav – an incredible ancient text that aims to expand our reality, and the individual’s sense of self.

These ancient teachings are techniques to experience infinity within oneself. Learning these tools will enable you to quiet your mind and practice self-awareness.

Sri Sri’s goal is to uplift people around the globe, to reduce stress, and to develop leaders so that human values can flourish in people and communities.

I started meditating a little over ten years now. It took me three years to incorporate it into my lifestyle. Everything seemed chaotic around me. I then realized that I had no control over my external environment. I noticed subtle changes of being happier and less anxious in about two months. Without judgment, I meditate five minutes to one hour daily. Learn to reboot your mind.

To just be…simple things like happiness don’t seem so simple sometimes. Meditation gives us gratitude and happiness.

I believe it is crucial that meditation should be implemented in the workforce and place of education. The benefits are numerous and scientifically proven.

If you have not started a meditation practice, now is a good time with the help from Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (Art of Living founder). He will decode these age-old teachings and tap into the essence of Vigyan Bhairav;  To ultimately, guide you through the unknown meditative space within yourself.  The goal is to have more joy, clarity and a sharpened intellect. Who wouldn’t want that?
