Stress Relief: More than 500 individuals to benefit free-of-charge
Dubai: Stress-suffering individuals from the Emirates are being given a unique opportunity to tackle their problem in the first Fono / Nokia- sponsored Meditation Stress Management Workshop, to take place in Dubai on Friday, May 25.
Conducted by internationally acclaimed Villy Doctor, an ex-Mumbai University psychology professor, the workshop aims to increase self-awareness and reduce stress via a simple-to-learn process based on the awakening of the 'Kundalini' an ancient form of yoga.
"Meditation relieves stress, stimulates the mind and improves an individual's performance whilst
making him or her feel better," said Villy Doctor.
"This is a highly developed system of meditation and stress sufferers willing to experiment could actually find a solution to their problem," said Doctor, who has held numerous Stress Management workshops for multinationals and major corporations across the globe, most recent being the Katmandu event, where she taught self-realisation to over 1,000 children.
"It is all about self-improvement, personal growth and discovering your inner-self," she said.
"Stress has become a buzzword, as prevalent as a common cold. We all have a variety of symptoms indicating excessive pressure from the environment. Today stress is an irrefutable reality, from which there is no escape. So one has to learn to manage it," said Doctor.
The three-hour event, starting at 14.00, will be hosted at Al Bustan Rotana hotel and includes a 90-minute introduction to the concept, the actual 80-minute-long contemplation process and a questions and answers session at the end.
The first 500 people who will fax their details on 04 2995986 will be entitled to attend.
"Our sponsorship of this workshop is in line with Fono's commitment to the community," said Robert Bie, General Manager,
Fono. Attendees will be encouraged to donate Dhs 20 with the proceeds going to
Medecins Sans Frontieres, which have endorsed the event.
