Celebrating the Holiday Season

Bad Antogast, Germany, December 25 – 31, 2012

The Art of Living Foundation’s European headquarters in Bad Antogast, Germany, hosted a two-week individual empowerment and leadership workshop during the holiday season. Designed to advance Sri Sri’s vision for “a stress-free violence-free society,” the workshop highlighted cultural and religious diversity.

The workshop was followed by an inter-faith New Year celebration at Berlin, where Sri Sri led attendees through meditation. Encouraging participants to commit time for volunteerism, Sri Sri said, “When it comes to doing, say, “How can I do some more? How can I contribute more to make this world a better place?” This should be our line of thinking.”
