Come summer and most parents find it a challenge to keep their children occupied. Television seems to be an easy alternative but then how much good can the idiot box do, thus starts the marathon. From sports camp and art class to tuitions and dance workshops, no arena is left unexplored. Children end up running the same race they’ve been at all year round.

Stop and consider though, an entirely fresh new spin on the meaning of summer school holidays. How about a true time off from the grueling schedule at a serene, stress-busting getaway? Colours of Joy- a four day event for children by the Art of Living offer one just that.

Set amidst five hills, a beautiful lake, lush surroundings and sprawling grounds, the venue is the organization’s international ashram in Bangalore. And what lends this much needed break its blissful touch is the presence of His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankarji throughout the event.

Colours of Joy brings together a unique bouquet of courses specially designed for children. ART EXCEL (All Round Training in Excellence) course channelizes a child’s brimming energy through various meditative techniques and interactive sessions leading to improved health, memory and concentration. Not only does it provide an outlet for their creativity but also stirs in a sense of belongingness, compassion and friendliness towards all. Made especially for children between the ages 8 and 13, the course helps build confidence and rid oneself of daily stresses. Something all children today seem to need.

Youth Empowerment Seminar (YES!) is a course tailored to address the needs of children aged 14 to 18 years. The workshop equips the participants with powerful processes that help channelize young energy and improve focus. Special breathing techniques like the Sudarshan Kriya help cleanse their mind and body of toxins, stresses, negative emotions and various mental barriers.

For those who’ve already undergone the YES! Program, there’s the YES!2 course- a dynamic, vibrant workshop that takes the sense of responsibility, understanding , confidence and self belief in young minds to altogether new heights. It introduces the participants to the concept of silence through which they are able to experience the calmness of the self. If that’s not all, there’s also a Sahaj Samadhi course for graduates of the YES!2 programme. Conducted by Mrs. Bhanumathi Narasimhan- Director of Art of Living’s Women and Child Welfare Programmes, the course will help the participants experience the bliss of deep, undisturbed meditations.

Colours of Joy isn’t just about day long courses though. The children will be treated to special sessions on chanting, the Subhashitas, Gita, stories from the Puranas, ashram tours, handicraft and pottery workshops , talks on organic farming, a trip to the goshala, an interesting discourse on the glory of India and of course sessions with His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji.

Scheduled to take place from 31st May to 3rd June, it is a true vacation in every way, both for children and parents. Register for the event on www.vvmvp.org . You may also call 9379806397 or send across an email toaeyesadmin@vvki.net
