This contribution has been reduced, taking in account the financial difficulties that many of us are facing today due to the sanitary situation, but as everyone else we need some income too.
In case of real personal financial difficulty, do not hesitate to join us, and we will find a solution together.
Our proposal is mainly for sharing meditative states, and also to reduce the emotional contagion of worries and uncertainty created by the sanitary situation, this program having many beneficial aspects on the global physical, psychological and immune systems.

    I was at the Yoga Vidya Kongress in Germany in November – and attended André´s lectures.

    Hello again,

    My emails are not being sent to the above email address. I get them returned to me, as not having been sent.
