Mr Santosh Rao from the International Faculty of Art of Living talks to Rahul Laud about the benefits of conducting the DSN Course. . . .
A management consultant in the area of Human Resources and Business Development, Mr Santosh Rao is a highly acclaimed management expert and trainer, known for his innovative programs for corporations, universities, prisons and civil groups. He forms a crucial part of the International Art of Living Faculty and for the last 13 years he has transformed the lives of many around the world conducting the DSN (Do Something Now/New) courses in Azerbaijan, Serbia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Amsterdam, Berlin, Hamburg, Croatia, Sweden, Estonia, Poland, Slovenia, Belarus, Romania, Tanzania, South Africa, Zimbabwe, India and France. He has taught one of the largest DSN in Europe in Bulgaria which had 386 participants.
Speaking on the relevance of the course, he states that, “It is a rigorous and transformational course that empowers participants to break through personal inhibitions and barriers and access inner stability and power.” He further explains, “We each have a deep desire to be the best we can be – for ourselves, our families, our communities and even our world – but many of us have personal barriers, old habits, or inhibitions that hold us back and keep us from fully participating in life. Old emotional wounds, self-concepts, attitudes, and fears can also be obstacles to living the life we really want. DSN uses a powerful combination of yoga, padmasadhana group processes, and deep spiritual knowledge to break through personal barriers and create personal empowerment.” The four – day DSN course is open to all those who have completed the Art of Living Happiness Program.
Interestingly, the Sudarshan Kriya forms the basis for learning new techniques, and that is precisely why, it is a mandatory pre-requite to have completed the Art of Living Happiness course to take up the DSN Course. In the words of Mr Rao, “In The Happiness Program participants are taught the Sudarshan Kriya, a powerful breathing technique which is the basis for building on further techniques and deepening the experience. “
Unfortunately, there are very few teachers worldwide, which makes this special course very rare .Thus participants pre-book their seats much in advance to be able to complete this course.
