New Delhi, November 2, 2008: The body-mind & spirit fest of “celebrating wellness” at the Life Positive Expo 2008 ended today on a high note. The Expo, organised by Life Positive, India’s first and finest spirituality and wellness magazine, had attracted delegates from various parts of the country, with participants coming from far off places like Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Goa, Surat and even outside India. The events were spread across a span of three days, starting from the 31st October at the Federation House, Tansen Marg, New Delhi.
On the final day of the Expo, the two simultaneous morning sessions were conducted by Shri Manoj Lekhi & Ms. Najoo Sohonie and Mr. Roy Eugene Davis. Mr. Davis had come all the way from USA to hold the workshop. The participants tapped into the immense power of intention under the able guidance of the dynamic duo, Manoj Lekhi and Najoo Sohonie, the former being a disciple of Guruji Shri Rishi Prabhakar while the latter is a reputed corporate trainer. Both are also experienced teachers of the Siddha Saamadhi Yoga (SSY) programme. Mr. Davis, who is a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, conducted a session on the techniques and benefits of Kriya yoga that both fascinated and empowered the participants.
The extensive lunch break between the morning and afternoon sessions gave the delegates the much required opportunity to explore the exhibition organized on the FICCI grounds. The stalls held an immense attraction for one and all, as many of them offered a novel experience to the seekers, like the Divine Energies stall, which provided aura-scanning reports of the visitors through the use of bio-feedback machines and Health India Laboratories, that offered a range of innovative products made out of ‘Noni’ fruit- the super food from South India. We also had Haven Klinic with their unique brand of energized water and Krish Consultations that came up with anti-radiation chips for mobile phones and computers. South Delhi Polytechnic for Women offered information on the various courses they provide in the field of alternative therapies. The Life Positive stall was also a huge hit with the visitors queuing up for their copy of the Teaching Stories book.
The second half of the day saw sessions conducted by Sri Samadarshini of Oneness University and Dr. SPS Bakshi, the Chairman of Baksons Homoeopathy Clinic. While some participants learned crucial lessons for healing relationships from Samadarshiniji, others were immensely benefited by the workshop conducted by Dr. Bakshi on healing allergies through homeopathy. Each participant left with an enhanced spiritual awareness and a sense of well being and armed with effective tips and techniques to combat stress, diseases and other crucial issues of day-to-day living.
The evening came to a fitting conclusion with an effective and invigorating discourse on Yoga by Paramahamsa Nithyananda of Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam. The success of the Expo lay in the fact that everybody went back with something that they would cherish for life. Some knowledge, some technique, some experience was gained that would permeate into the participant’s daily life, enabling him or her to emerge as better individuals and start a positive ripple effect in their family and society at large.
About Life Positive
Life Positive is a body- mind-spirit magazine promoting a holistic understanding of life with the emphasis on personal growth. It was started in April 1996 by Aditya Ahluwalia, chairman of the organization. The present editor-in-chief is Suma Varughese.
From the inception the magazine hit an instant chord with the reading public and has carved a base of enthusiastic and loyal readers. The core of the reader-magazine relationship rests in the fact that the magazine caters completely to the needs of those on the growth path. It also provides validation, support and a sense of belonging to all those who seek a life of joy, harmony, peace and self-actualisation. In today’s sensationalistic and negative publishing culture, Life Positive stands out as a repository of sanity, optimism, and responsible journalism that promotes higher values. It can be credited with having pioneered the concept of spiritual journalism in India and for having created an altogether new niche in magazine publishing. It also influenced the publication of spirituality and health-based articles and sections in mainstream media most of which carry regular articles on the subjects today.
