”Through understanding the laws of thought, you can mould or shape your character in any way you like. The common saying, ‘As a man thinks so he becomes,’ is one of the great laws of thought. Think you are pure, pure you will become. Think you are noble, noble you will become.” – Swami Sivananda

We can change. We do not have to be caught up in an inescapable web of anxiety, depression or anger, peppered with occasional moments of happiness. Find out how your mind works, and learn how to control it, leading to a happier and more fulfilled life. Topics covered include: the nature and laws of thought; building awareness of one’s thoughts; changing negative emotions into positive; turning obstacles into challenges; and lessening unwanted thoughts.

Registration Information

The course tuition (listed above) is for the whole program. Your accommodation rate includes meals, Satsangs, and Hatha yoga classes which are offered daily.
