This Positive Living program was just the right dose of inspiration I needed. I felt entertained and informed about lots of issues from the benefits of Intuitive meditation or natural meditation to how to help motivate people you care about. I'm looking forward to more programs from your series because I found the holistic approach very unusual and unique.

Particularly I found the talks from your founder, Srinivas Arka, helpful. It was good to learn practical tips on dealing with depression and anxiety such as managing your expectations. I especially loved what he explained about how if you wanted to be happy, you had to welcome the precursor of happiness which was problems or troubles. So true!!

It was good to see many young people who were clearly enthusiastic and well informed about the topics they spoke on and the invited experts who spoke about nutrition.

Very good, I give this five stars. Thanks to everyone involved.

I awoke this morning to your organization on my Instagram feed. I looked at your website and I wanted to let you know how powerful I find your program to be and I appreciate what you are doing. I hope to see more organizations like yours as we evolve in our consciousness and make this inherent wisdom more mainstream. I feel like teaching young people the magic they are capable of will create a huge shift moving forward as well. I just want to thank you for coming into my awareness this morning, as just knowing an organization like yours exists give me focus on moving forward in my own journey. Thanks again and have a beautiful day.

Celebration of Nature –
7th Anniversary Event

I was delighted to attend the ‘Celebration of Nature’ organized by CCA-Canada on November 5 2017. The sessions on water conservation by Lisa Ward, and on Internationally Trained Medical Doctors by Dr. Shafi Bhuiyan were informative and inspirational. In addition, we were treated to talented performances by Nathan Roy and Friends and an intriguing presentation on the power of earthworms by Cathy Nesbitt. The experience was very rewarding and promoted harmony in all aspects of life. I look forward to more events by CCA-Canada would like to thank them for this wonderful initiative!

The Centre for Conscious Awareness – Canada has contributed to our Health Promotion and Wellness department at the Bernard Betel Centre with their participants in past Health Fairs and delivering wonderful presentations and demonstrations to the seniors at the centre. The participants enjoyed learning the health benefits of meditation and learning how to incorporate meditation into their daily lives. The feedback we received was wonderful.

CCA-Canada hosted a workshop for MBA students at Ryerson University before final exams to discuss stress, time management and to provide tips and techniques for effective studying and relaxation. The session was great, with good discussion and interesting relaxation techniques that are helpful when feeling stressed. I think the work being done by CCA-Canada is great, given that many people are often overworked and stressed which can negatively impact health, and therefore it is important to have a positive outlook, which the centre helps with.

Arka Dhyana Intuitive Meditation has made a wonderful difference in my spiritual practice. My body, which used to feel like an annoying bundle of aches and discomforts getting in the way of meditation, has become the entrance to the meditative world. It is a joy to acknowledge the gift of the body. I am especially moved each time I touch my feet in Arka Dhyana. I grew up thinking that feet are such lowly things: feet are dirty, don’t put your feet on the furniture, wash your hands if you touch your feet. How delightful it is to feel vibrations of touch and sound spreading with love from those feet into every part of me and of the universe. It is the same, of course, with all the body points I touch, so that in the end, all vibrate together. Then silence becomes the most natural thing.

To come and contemplate nature and feeling so relaxed and clean within ourselves is the most precious gift you could give your self. I recommend this to all the people because it will take away their worries, stress, and you come back into the outside world feeling positive, happy, rejuvenated and most of all ready to give love to everything and everyone. Being close to mother nature and close to your own self through Arka Dhyana meditation is the most wonderful gift there is.
