Heartfulness is a modified technique of Raja Yoga adapted for modern day life, and for all those who live an active and social life.

Heartfulness is an approach to life that helps to understand the significance of meditation in everyday life. It helps integrate our inner world with the outer world. It is feeling the lightness and joy of one’s true inner nature and experiencing it in heart.
