Ancient cultures have long accepted the power of the mind, and agriculture and food security is one of the most pressing issues of these times.

Our ancestors were aware of how we are interwoven into the wider context of our living, including how these connections impact our health and vitality.

For over four years, small landholders in India have been integrating mind-heart based meditation with methods of organic farming. This 90 minute Brahma Kumaris’ workshop will explore this experimental process, being both instructive and practical, didactic and interactive.
