CultureLink organized a series of Wellness Sessions for all in the month of June 2021 spread over a period of four days in the evenings, with each group session lasting an hour. The purpose of the Wellness Sessions are geared towards stress and relief through a specialized form of meditation -The Breath Water Sound which was offered under the aegis of IAHV – International Association of Human values and Art of Living founded by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar who is a global peace ambassador and humanitarian. Through The Breath, Water Sound meditation program, I.A.H.V. seeks to address the challenges of economically and emotionally distressed communities by empowering them. The first step towards empowerment is stress – elimination and inner confidence through simple breathing, sound relaxation and meditation techniques taught to relax the individual.

These techniques taught participants how to handle negative emotions such as anger, regrets and depression. By dealing with these emotions, there is a sense of peace and relaxation resulting in mental clarity, focus and confidence to find solutions for challenges faced. Participants enjoyed the wellness sessions and learnt about the meditation technique under a trained expert Jasminder Virk (Art of Living Teacher) and were feeling refreshed. IAHV programs reduce stress and develop leaders so that human values can flourish in people and communities.
