Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar to Visit Houston with Public Event at Wortham Center

HOUSTON: Global humanitarian and spiritual leader Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, founder of the Art of Living Foundation (AOLF), brings the “Sixth Sense” public event to Houston on Tuesday, August 1, 2023, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at the Wortham Theater Center.

The event, presented by the Art of Living Foundation – Houston, features an evening of wisdom and meditation with Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, whose lifelong work focuses on peace, unity, hope and self-renewal at both the level of the individual and society. Gurudev, a visionary leader, created Sudarshan Kriya (SKY) Breath Meditation and has been teaching the breath-based meditation techniques for health and well-being for over 40 years. These evidence-based techniques are backed by over 100 research studies and transformational experiences of the participants. Locally, Art of Living volunteer instructors have taught these techniques to participants from all walks of life including healthcare professionals, students, veterans and inmates.

“The time has come for the voice of peace to be heard loud and clear. If each person makes an intention to stand up for peace and makes their mental health a priority, we can make world peace a reality” Gurudev said. This event marks the visit of Gurudev to Houston after a long gap of 15 years and will bring together 2400 people to unite and take the message of peace to every corner of our community. Houstonians are invited to join this global movement during a historical evening of wisdom and meditation from Gurudev. “In the Sixth Sense event, attendees will learn and experience how to connect with their inner and outer world beyond the senses. As human beings, we experience this world through our mind and the five known senses. Without spiritual wisdom, we might think that reality is only what we see, hear, touch, smell, or taste. But what happens with the rest of the life that exists beyond our five known senses. By participating, you will learn how to connect with your Sixth Sense—and gain greater clarity, awareness, peace, and more!
