News - Back with a bang
by Life Positive
2012 was a transformative year for the Life Positive Expo. Ever since its birth in 2005, circumstances dictated that it reign in solitary splendour in New Delhi. 2012 changed all that. The Expo went to Rishikesh, and gave all those who participated one of the most sublime experiences of their lives. Then with increasing momentum and confidence, it galloped to Mumbai, and conquered the megalopolis with its brand of quality location, profound discourses, transformative workshops and a wide array of spiritual goods and services.
What makes the Expo so popular? Firstly, it is one of the few non-sectarian spaces available in the spiritual domain. At the Expo, you can be a Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Muslim, or equally a Vedantin, yoga practitioner, Sri Sri disciple, Sadhguru follower or a Brahma Kumari. No matter what your path, you will find yourself right at home, for we operate in the pure zone of spirituality and personal growth.
Secondly, the Expo offers quality teachers and trainers. Only those who pass our internal standards of excellence are given an opportunity to lead at the Expo, which is why it is both a much coveted as well as prestigious platform.
Thirdly, the Expo offers unbelievable value for money. Despite operating in the most premium places of the city, like India Habitat Centre in Delhi or World Trade Centre in Mumbai, offering gourmet food, and getting amazing facilitators whose standalone workshop rates are steep, we at the Expo offer an extremely reasonable package, unparalleled in the industry. This year, for instance, the facilitators include the renowned Patricia Crane, who is the only one licenced by the great Louise L Hay to train trainers of the wonderful Heal Your Life programme in the world, as well as Dr Newton, arguably the best past-life regression facilitator in the country. We also have GL Sampoorna, one of the country’s leading therapists and Ketan Shah, one of the country’s most distinguished practitioners of acupressure. It would be foolish indeed to pass up such an opportunity, which is probably why delegates flock to the Expo, wherever it is held. You come too. Your life will never be the same.
Here below are the profiles of the masters and facilitators coming to Delhi for the first Life Positive Expo of 2013.
Inaugural address by Sister BK Shivani
“Stay happy, easy, contented and now do everything. That is spirituality,” states Sister Shivani of the Brahma Kumaris. Her serene visage and profound clarity of thought has made her one of the most popular and influential spiritual teachers of our time, followed avidly by lakhs of viewers of her programme ‘Awakening with Brahma Kumaris’, which currently airs on Aastha and Sanskar channels in India and Star Plus in USA, UK, Asia, Australia and Middle East.
A gold medal-winning student of electronic engineering turned Raj Yoga meditation teacher, Sister Shivani has been with the Brahma Kumaris for the last 15 years, Says she, “I just like the truths I learnt at the Brahma Kumaris. I saw them working practically. I found a lot of people looking for them and I felt like telling them,”
Sister Shivani presents a logical yet natural and easy way of adopting spirituality in life. This young teacher speaks on a wide range of topics like relationships, emotional intelligence, exploring inner powers, self-realisation, leadership skills, stress-free lifestyle, apart from practical techniques of Raj yoga meditation.
Valedictory address by Brahmarshi Subhash Patri
Brahmarshi, or simply Patriji, as he is known popularly, is the founder of Pyramid Spiritual Societies Movement and is a self-awakened man. Born in a small district of Andhra Pradesh, his regular spiritual practices eventually awarded him with enlightenment. Since then, his mission has been to awaken and enlighten each and every individual.
A pioneer of Anapanasati meditation, Brahmarshi Patri believes that spiritual health is the root and physical health is the fruit. “Anapanasati Meditation alone gives spiritual health to a person. Meditation is the greatest gift to be given to our lives by our own efforts. The physical body has its own natural and easy rhythm of the breath. In meditation, the mind has to become totally attuned to the normal rhythmic nature of the breath of the physical body,” he says. He is also unique in his promotion and construction of pyramids, including one which is considered to be the second largest in the world in the outskirts of Hyderabad! His untiring efforts has resulted in establishment of a number of pyramid meditation societies all over the country.
Facilitators at the Expo
Ketan Shah (Acupressure)
Ketan Shah has always been one of the most popular facilitators at any Expo. His indepth knowledge of acupressure and points to press for virtually all human ailments makes him close to a medical dictionary. Plus, he offers on-the-spot healing for minor ailments, always with a smile on his face.
Mr Shah turned to acupressure when battling gangrene caused by an appendicitis surgery gone wrong. When acupressure yielded a cure, in gratitude, he became a dedicated practitioner of the therapy. Mr. Shah is passionate about acupressure and sees nothing as beyond it whether it is Parkinson, diabetes or cancer. He conducts workshops and seminars all over the world to empower people with the capacity to heal themselves without drugs or doctors. His book, Acupressure for Total Wellness, published by Life Positive Publications, is a runaway best-seller.

Forgiveness is one of the hardest things to do. It is also the most necessary thing to do for it holds the secret of our peace, happiness, and even health. Through a combination of psychology, meditation, physical exercise, art, music, dance, visualisation, play, and laughter, GL Sampoorna will effectively help us to move into forgivenenss.
She reveals that a diabetic patient who attended a two-day workshop on forgiveness has stopped all medications for the last 10 years. Participants can expect deep and penetrating work that lasts. In addition, the techniques can be used at home, daily, to enable the continuation of the healing, forgiving, growing process.

Jacqueline Maria Longstaff
(Relationships as a spiritual pathway)
Relationships, especially intimate ones, are always challenging. And yet they offer the possibility of great happiness and growth, if they are based on mutual love, respect and commitment, says Jacqueline Maria Longstaff. She advocates bringing spiritual practice into relationships and teaches how to heal old wounds which come in the way of having more enlightened relationships. Says she, “As I see it, enlightened relationship will be the foundation for the New Age we are moving into.”
Founder of Singing Heart Ashram in South India, Jacqueline’s interests, apart from healing relationships, focus on various aspects of the spiritual life, particularly birthing and dying consciously, ideas that she has promoted through her concept of a Cosmic Airport zone with separate rooms for birthing and dying. Her books include Relationshit to Relationship, Only One Sky to Fly in, The Last Waltz and The Cosmic Airport - A vision whose time has come.
