“The Art Of Living Foundation Aims At Making Curacao The First Stress Free Country In The World”

Accredited by United Nations, The Art of Living Foundation is starting a campaign called “Stress-Free Curacao”. The vision is to make Curacao the first country in the world where all their inhabitants know breathing techniques to eliminate stress and manage negative emotions. The members of the foundation consider that “Curacao could be an example for the world”.

WILLEMSTAD – The Art of Living Foundation is an international organization run by volunteers that is imparting Seminars in Curacao on how to manage negative emotions, heal the body and the mind through breathing techniques.

The courses aim at reinstalling the Human Values in Society and creating a harmonious environment.

It is a non-profit, non-religious organization that is a member of the Economic and Social Council of United Nations. It is considered one of the biggest NGO in the world with centers in more than 150 countries and thousands of volunteers all around the globe.

“For every emotion there is a definite breathing pattern associated with it. When you are agitated your breath changes, when you are sad your breath changes. Not many people know that by changing the pattern of your breath you can heal your emotions” explains Francisco Moreno Ocampo, Director of The Art of Living in Venezuela and member of the new Art of Living Board (to be established) in Curacao.

As part of the “Stress-Free Curacao Campaign”, The Foundation offers a two-hour public session next Sunday November 25th at Hyatt Regency Curacao and a three-day course next Friday November 30th. The Sudarshan Kriya will be imparted in the course. It is a powerful breathing technique developed by The Art of Living founder, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, that eliminates stress, anxiety, insomnia, panic attacks, depression and gives focus and calmness to the mind.

The 3-day course (4 hours per day) in Curacao will start on Friday November 30th.
