Essentials of Positive Thinking

Pranava Chaitanya

When you choose your thoughts, you create your reality.

Neuroscience has proven we have the power to shape our brains and the way we think, and yogis have known this truth for thousands of years. This time-tested course has been taught at the ashram for years, and now with Pranava Chaitanya as your guide, you can learn practical ways to positively transform your own ways of thinking from the comfort of home.

At a subtle level, your thoughts are the building blocks of your health, relationships, and experiences as you move through life. Positive thoughts are energizing and facilitate growth, while negative thoughts are draining. Get rid of old, self-defeating habits. Build new discipline and strength. Return home with a new set of tools and a rejuvenated mind … and a fresh, confident outlook on life.

Each day for five days enjoy a 90-minute class on the Essentials of Positive Thinking. A course manual is provided for you to follow along with the material. This course was originally presented in a live format so you will hear the interaction between students and teacher as questions are asked and answered.

Whether a person is aware of it or not, he is constantly transmitting and receiving thoughts. Thoughts control our lives, mold our characters, shape destiny, and affect other people. When the potential contained in the power of thought is realized, it is the beginning of great spiritual growth in the individual.” —Swami Vishnudevananda

What you'll learn:

"I very much appreciated the course Essentials of Positive Thinking and recognise the wealth of study and personal practise required not only to present the material, but to bring wisdom and confidence in answering questions. I have brought several of the practices into my own practice and shared some of the ideas with our youth group, which they enjoyed. We will take the theme of thinking positively to the next online discussion group of the 'Antidote Cafe' here in Oxford. Thank you for the inspiration."
