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.
