Friday, Jan 1: Sister B.K. Shivani and Daaji discuss the importance of releasing the past to rejuvenate. Sister B K Shivani commented, "To bring about transformation, we need to form new habits and find a fresh way of looking at how life shaped us. We need to focus our energies and strive ahead with new thinking, not just at the start of the new year but each day of our lives."
Saturday, Jan 2: Shri Gaur Gopal Das and Daaji dialogue on enabling transformation through inner connection. Daaji said, "That which we focus our attention upon gets nurtured.

Heartfulness offers a simple set of meditative practices and lifestyle changes, first developed at the turn of the 20th century and formalized into teaching through Shri Ram Chandra Mission in 1945 in India. These practices are a modern form of Yoga designed to support contentment, inner calm and stillness, compassion, courage, and clarity of thought, as the first step towards a purposeful life. They are simple, easily adopted, and appropriate for people from all walks of life, cultures, religious beliefs, and economic situations, over the age of fifteen. More than 5,000 Heartfulness Centres are supported by thousands of certified volunteer trainers in 130 countries. More information is at www.heartfulness.org
