About two years ago, when I was pushing through my days, feeling emotionally drained, a dear friend invited me to join a group meditation.

The Heartfulness Way
  1. Emotional Resilience: Reduced symptoms of stress, anxiety and burnout
  2. Relaxation for physical well-being
  3. Rejuvenation: Unwinding the mind and letting go of emotional stress
  4. Inner well-being — to simplify life and connect with one’s inner nature. This paves the way for peace of mind, inner joy, bliss and what is beyond
  5. Making wise choices and empathetic Leadership
  6. Finding inner strength, developing confidence and balance
  7. Better relationships, and teams that are better integrated and more effective
  8. A happier, healthier, and more productive work environment
