• Positive Thinking, Living with joy, with Swami Kailasananda and Swami Jyotirmayananda

Positive Thinking, Living life with joy

3 - 7 May

With our thoughts we hold in our hands the most powerful tools of self transformation. Thoughts are the source of all our actions, they are the silent bricks that build our lives

We carry the responsibility for the quality of our thoughts, for the way we develop our thoughts and so choose the direction in which our life will go. We come to realise that we are the authors of our own life.

Thought is the most creative power in the universe and when the potential contained in the thought is realised, it is the beginning of great spiritual growth.
