Everyone wants to be positive and happy. Yoga teaches that happiness is true nature of humans. Nevertheless, we struggle with stress and negativity and live busy, fast-paced lives. The mind is over-stimulated and the senses numbed by the overload of information and the confusion and despair that comes from local, national or world news. In this atmosphere, it is difficult to access the innate positive and joyful nature and remember the goodness of people and the grace of God. One loses faith, and doubts the path. One worries about where the world is going and what will happen. One needs to see clearly and take a break from the busy life to recharge and reconnect with the beauty and meaning of life. One cannot change the external, but one can change our outlook on it. One cannot remake the past and it is not helpful to worry about the future, but one can live in the present and experience the joy and positivity of living in the moment.
There will be workshops specifically on the power of thoughts; how to be in the present; how to turn negative feelings and thoughts to positive feelings; how to manage stress and respond positively to challenges. Yoga psychology and philosophy have a wealth of techniques and information that will help one to cope.
