happiness is a state of mind
Kundalini Yoga Workshop
Jiwan Shakti Kaur
Every single emotion, every passion and every action are determined by a hormone. Same applies to our health, the physical and mental state of being.
We are not “made like that”, you are not a “grumpy one”, she is not a “lazy one“: We are biochemistry! Our capacity to love, understand, accept and even our mood, hunger, thirst, desire, ability to concentrate, to procreate, to resist, our way to live relationships, our sexual potency, everything is connected to our endocrine glands and their functioning.
Prolonged stress, wrong food, lack of exercise, incoherent lifestyle, menopause and andropause are some of the main causes of the loss of hormonal balance.
Happiness is a state of the mind, depending on the complex interplay of chemicals in the brain. Their availability depends on the food we consume, what we think, physical activity, the interaction with the environment. A sense of well-being is the result of a balanced hormone level. Too much or too little may manifest as mania or respectively as depression.
If you are happy, happiness will come to you because happiness wants to go where happiness is. – Yogi Bhajan
In this workshop we will explore dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, endorphins, the 4 hormones which directly are involved in our experience of happiness:
• Dopamine causes a sense of contentment and happiness. It is involved in controlling the mood.
• Serotonin is correlated with variations in personality and mood and is also linked to depression. Serotonin prevents depression and makes a person happy.
• Oxytocin is sometimes referred to as ‘love hormone’ because it is secreted in response to the social recognition, bonding and loving physical contact/orgasm.
• Endorphins make us feel good, reduce pain and anxiety.
By a simple, individual test, you will discover the signals your body sends, providing you with a profound understanding of your glandular system.
In this workshop, you will experience a variety of Yoga exercises, meditations, mantras and many tools more, and you will learn how easily small changes in your lifestyle, in your diet, allow you to make a significant change to a richer happy life.
