Meditation for the busiest of minds 

Happiness can seem elusive at times, a distant dream, or so fleeting you wonder where it went. The mind swirls around, crammed with thoughts. Disconnection and stress easily become the norm.

In today’s society, it is more important than ever to gain tools to connect to the wellspring of calm and peace within you, in the here and now. And that’s what meditation does. It gives you access to the stillness that resides deep within, a place that is steady, at ease, clear, and relaxed regardless of what’s happening around you. Science is now showing us what ancient yogis knew thousands of years ago, meditation works. And what’s even better?
Anyone can meditate, even the busiest of minds! 

Globally celebrated meditation master, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, will share with you ancient techniques for contemporary life, to enable you to fill up from the inside so when the inevitable challenges of life arise, your connection to the fullness, and steadiness within, remains.

Knowing how to manage the mind is fundamental to inner peace, joy, and a centered state of mind. When the mind is calm, everything in life gets sweeter—relationships improve, stress is reduced, mood lifts, and there is a greater sense of ease and joy each day.


The Doorway to Happiness

“People search for joy everywhere not knowing that the Self is the source of all joy.”

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar 


Tue, August 1
Houston, TX

“People search for joy everywhere not knowing that the Self is the source of all joy.”

In this event you will learn and experience how to connect with your inner and outer world beyond the senses.

As human beings, we experience this world through our mind and the five known senses. Without spiritual wisdom, we might think that reality is only what we see, hear, touch, smell, or taste. But what happens with the rest of the creation that exists beyond our five  known senses? By participating, you will learn how to connect with your Sixth Sense—and gain greater clarity, awareness, peace, and more!
