1. Happiness Programme by Art of Living Foundation
The link between meditation and happiness is well-documented. Daily meditation enables practitioners to adopt a more optimistic and levelheaded approach towards life. To achieve this natural state of happiness, the Art of Living Foundation, an international non-governmental organisation that helms global initiatives in trauma relief and youth empowerment, is offering a three-day Happiness Program. Its trainers employ the Sudarshan Kris yoga technique, a controlled breathing practice that provides relief for depression and decreases cortisol levels, a major stress hormone in the human body. Designed in four two-hour sessions, the programme is now available online.
