‘Healing America’ aims to revitalize communities through a nationwide online program focused on promoting healing across the country where participants will learn evidence-based SKY Breath Meditation techniques.
Over 100 independent studies (including ones from top-rated universities such as Yale, University of Arizona, and Harvard) published in peer-reviewed journals, have demonstrated a comprehensive range of benefits from practicing SKY Breath Meditation such as reducing stress, relieving anxiety, improving sleep, enabling a calm state of mind while making people feel happier and more optimistic.
Over a thousand individuals across the USA will take part in this initiative by participating in a three-day online workshop.
The planet is currently going through challenging times and needs healing. The importance of breathing and meditation has never been more starkly recognized. Since the onset of the Covid-19 crisis, the Art of Living Foundation has come forward to support various communities in America including healthcare heroes, people of color, senior citizens and their caregivers in nursing homes/shelters, children and educators. ‘Healing America’ will provide a unique opportunity for different communities to come together and experience the power of SKY Breath Meditation, allowing participants to discover a state of deep inner calm and happiness.
