There are theories that hypothesize otherwise and recent scientific studies that allude that we are not just genes. In the new world view, the human mind assumes special significance. In view of this new scientific awareness, the real environment for our healthy living or even for recovery from any illness is the human mind.

It is not our actual limitations, but what we tell ourselves or what we believe about ourselves that holds us back. This short talk will highlight how we might find ways of working compassionately with that voice of self-criticism, and that would allow us to achieve our goals and make the changes we wish to manifest in our lives.

Nonviolence: our way to personal fulfillment and social change

Gandhi said, “Nonviolence is not the inanity it has been taken for down the ages.” When we grasp the full depth of nonviolence we discover in it the path, embedded in human nature, to our personal growth and the rescue of our world from ecological and social degradation. We discover that it’s no mere collection of techniques but a way of being, a state of mind — that it’s not the province only of scholars or revolutionaries but open to all of us.

In this webinar we’re going to explore possible ways of reconnecting with our Self, with one another and with Nature.

Pandemic Stress Management Through Chair Yoga by Alison Granger Brown, consultant and trainer for the ACHIEVE Centre for Leadership and Workplace Performance, from Vancouver, Canada. #SDG3 #Yoga #IDY2020

Pandemic Stress Management Through Chair Yoga

Yoga is about balance. All the systems of our body that are sustaining life are exquisitely balanced without our awareness. However, in times of undue stress, that unconscious process can be taxed and even derailed by our fearful thinking even without our conscious awareness. These two short practices that anyone can do from a chair will help us to calm our stress response system or wake up our energy. We will use calming thoughts, breath and poses to build awareness of our feelings (bodily sensations) and learn how to control our stress response system.
