    The event is a chance to relax.

    We’re all a little stressed and could use an opportunity to rejuvenate.

    Fortunately, some of the people who know how to teach use to slow down, focus on traditional relaxation methods and live a stress-free life are coming together right here in Hartford next weekend.

    Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, who Forbes Magazine deems one of the five most powerful people in India, is coming to Hartford.

    He is known as the “Guru of Joy” and founded the ‘Art of Living,’ a foundation that works to reduce violence and stress, reaches out globally wherever there is trauma and disaster and educates and strengthen individuals and to create a violence free world.

    The organization’s annual convention happens in downtown Hartford from July 19 to 25 at the Connecticut Convention Center.

    From July 19 to 21, a teachers’ refresher program is being offered at the Hilton hotel. An introductory workshop, which is open to the public, is being offered at the Sheraton hotel.

    More than 2100 attendees from across the country, South America, Europe, Canada, and Mexico are expected for self-development workshops and meditation retreats, which are being held at the Convention Center.

    With some help from the pros, this is a chance to learn how to live a stress free life, as well as ancient and innovative breathing techniques, meditation and yoga directly from the Guru, his holiness Sri Sri.
