The Secret is in the Breath: Sustaining our Mental Health at Home and Work

May 6, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The Burnaby Festival of Learning is proud to present The Secret is in the Breath: Sustaining our Mental Health at Home & Work!

With so many changes in our social landscape brought about by the pandemic and other stressors, we can sometimes feel overwhelmed, anxious, and stressed. This virtual workshop led by Dr Hiteshini Jugessur will introduce participants to the benefits of mindfulness. Dr Jugessur will introduce you to accessible breathing exercises and mindfulness-based activities that you can do at home or at work. Learn how to build resilience and sustainable mental health practices into your daily life.


Meet Dr. Hiteshini Jugessur, a rare combination of a committed scientist, social activist, teacher of yoga & meditation, and President of Art of Living Canada. Early on in her profession she chose to abandon comfort and prestige to dedicate herself to humanitarian service with an aim of bringing comfort, solace and healing to those in need. With her Ph.D. in Surgical Research from McGill University and a keen interest in meditation and yoga, she pursued an interest in alternative forms of healing. Hiteshini was particularly drawn to the powerful techniques offered by the Art of Living. She has since become an acclaimed international teacher for the Art of Living Foundation.

All online events will have Zoom links sent to attendees 24 hours prior to the event.

Attendees will receive confirmation once registration is complete.
