Conference in French by Carole Morency

Yoga is a discipline that involves much more than just postures—indeed, it tackles every dimension of human beings. As a practice that enables individuals to create a better reality for themselves, positive thinking is the very heart and soul of yoga.

What is the nature of your thoughts? Are you a slave to your thoughts, or a master of them? How do thoughts affect your life? What particular tools
can you use to foster positive thinking? What is meditation, and how do you practice it?

These questions and more will be addressed during this interactive conference on positive thinking. Those in attendance will find answers to their questions, possible solutions and concrete tools to help them become happier and contribute to the happiness that surrounds them.
