We’re excited to announce two very special signature programs this summer—opportunities to participate in an enlightening in-person session with Art of Living Founder and spiritual leader Gurudev— for anyone who has not taken the Happiness Program, an Art of Living Course, YESPlus, or SKY Breath meditation workshop.
Our signature retreats are grounded in the evidenced-based practice of the Sudarshan Kriya, or SKY—A powerful breathing technique that has been learned by millions around the world for better sleep, less stress, increased energy, and more clarity.
Don’t miss these one-time only retreats.

Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is a spiritual guide, figure of peace, and international humanitarian. He is recognized as a leading figure in contemporary meditation and for creating evidence-based techniques that cultivate sustainable joy and peace in daily life.
In his dedication to the service of others, Gurudev founded the international, non-profit, humanitarian organization, the Art of Living, 40 years ago. It has become a movement that has inspired a wave of transformation in over 156 countries, touching millions of lives and generating a global network of volunteers and teachers.
Gurudev is an ambassador of peace and celebrated thought leader at venues from the United Nations to the European Parliament, and from Stanford University to Yale.
