“My work requires me to interact with many different people. After taking the course for the first time in India four years ago, I have become an efficient communicator. I am more receptive to people’s ideas and I am enjoying being more creative. Earlier I was a big procrastinator. Now I am cured of that and I am able to take more and more responsibilities."
Dr. Toussaint noted that “Preliminary independent studies that have been done on the core Art of Living Course techniques, particularly Sudarshan Kriya, found significant improvement in health and well-being, increase in energy level, relief of depression and an increased ability to be both relaxed and focused when faced with stresses and challenges of everyday life.”
As per Dr. Toussaint: “Statistically significant decreased levels of LDL cholesterol and increased levels of glutathione, superoxide dismutase and catalase were found in preliminary studies. These are powerful antioxidants which prevent many chronic diseases”, http://www.artofliving.org/Research/tabid/107/Default.aspx.

Sahj Samadhi Meditation Course
Ray Diaz , a Networks Operations Specialist from Embarq has this to say: "I have been studying and meditating on and off for many years. I thought I knew all I needed to know about the subject and all I had to do was put in the time and do it. -- Man, was I wrong! The method I learned on this course is so much simpler and direct than anything else I had studied or practiced before. Now when I combine it with the daily program from the Art of Living Course, I can take my meditation to a whole new and deeper level. Thanks to this course, meditation is a daily part of my live again, and I meditate every morning without fail."
