Filipinos discover the power of breathwork and meditation with world-renowned spiritual leader and ambassador of peace Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

An audience of over 1,300 people from all backgrounds was captivated by the joy and wisdom of Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, world renowned humanitarian, spiritual leader and ambassador of peace, at a public talk held at The Fifth at Rockwell, Powerplant Mall, Makati. Organized by Art of Living Philippines and the International Association for Human Values (IAHV), the event gathered spiritual enthusiasts, government leaders, peacebuilders, influencers, and a diverse mix of people to highlight the importance of finding inner peace and joy during these trying times.

The event was graced by the Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Gen. Romeo Brawner, Jr., Secretary Benhur Abalos, Jr. of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), Secretary Jaime Bautista of the Department of Transportation (DOT), AFP Deputy Chief of Staff for Civil Military Operations Maj. Gen. Arvin Lagamon, and His Excellency Ahmed Abdallah Ibrahim Hafez, Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt.

During his talk, Gurudev shared how meditation gives people access to their own happiness and well-being while finding inner peace. He said, “To access this treasure we need to begin by focusing inwardly and for this we need some training. Meditation is this training. As we meditate more, we gain confidence in our innate basic goodness and well-being. This unlocks our potential and gives our lives tremendous meaning.”

In the face of adversity, Gurudev also said that meditation not only opens a gateway to compassion but also connects people deeply with themselves and others.

“As a child when we cried it would not take much time before we smiled again. As adults however, when we cry it could take months and sometimes years before we can smile again. We have not learned how to manage our own mind. The secret to managing our mind and emotions lies in the breath,” Gurudev explained. This is what the Art of Living and IAHV teach people to do through their programs and initiatives.

Earlier in the week, upon his arrival in Manila, Gurudev was welcomed by the First Lady Liza Marcos at a dinner reception at the Goldenberg Mansion, Malacañang Palace. They spoke on the benefits of meditation and the need for meditation centers in the metropolis.

Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar also gave a highly impactful keynote address at the Asian Development Bank (ADB) entitled “Mental Health and Well-Being: Strengthening Resilience for Individuals, Societies and Nations”, where he talked about staff physical and mental well-being and how these considerations can be woven into ADB’s development projects.

Later that day, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar held a closed-door meeting with key stakeholders working on peacebuilding and conflict resolution, including key officials from the AFP and the Philippines Government, as mentioned earlier, and representatives from the United Nations, Z Group, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector.

Through a myriad of programs and teachings conducted by Art of Living and IAHV, Gurudev has reached and touched the lives of almost 450 million people in 180 countries – including 15,000 Filipinos – empowering and equipping people to tackle challenges at the individual, societal, national, and global levels.

The cornerstone of Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s teachings is the Sudarshan Kriya (SKY) – a simple but powerful breathing technique that has been demonstrated in over 100 independent peer-reviewed scientific studies to significantly reduce depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress; boost immunity; improve sleep; and increase life satisfaction; among other benefits.

Recognized for his significant global contributions, Gurudev has to date received 26 honorary doctorates and 55 government honors, including the highest civilian awards of Colombia, Mongolia, Paraguay, and Suriname. Twenty-nine days have been named after him in various cities and states across the USA and Canada.

Gurudev continues to help a growing number of Filipinos foster deep and profound inner peace, happiness, and well-being through numerous educational and self-development programs offered by Art of Living and IAHV.

Platinum sponsors of the event were Standard Insurance and Wings Publication International.

Dove Launches Campaign to Empower Women to Embrace Underarm Confidence and End Shaming in the Philippines

On the last day of International Women’s Month, Dove proudly unveiled a bold campaign aimed at eradicating the stigma surrounding women’s underarms, commonly referred to as “kili-kili,” in the Philippines.

Underarm shaming has long been a prevalent issue affecting women’s confidence and self-esteem across various cultures, including the Philippines. Societal standards and unrealistic beauty ideals have often led to the stigmatization of natural underarm features, perpetuating feelings of shame and insecurity among women. Research indicates that 8 out of 10 Filipino women refrain from raising their arms due to feelings of insecurity.

With a legacy dating back to 2004, Dove has been a trailblazer in reshaping beauty standards and uplifting women worldwide. From its iconic Beauty Bar to its ongoing campaigns, Dove has consistently advocated for real beauty and inclusivity. This dedication to portraying women truthfully and fostering body confidence is evident in initiatives like the ‘Dove Real Beauty Pledge’ and the Dove Self-Esteem Project.

Recognizing the urgency of addressing this pervasive issue, Dove launches an integrated campaign celebrating moments when women bravely raised their arms for change, leaving an enduring impact on their communities and society. The campaign, displayed through outdoor posters and across digital and social media platforms with the hashtag #freethepits, extends an invitation to Pinays of all ages to join the movement to be kili-kili proud.

Bianca Cancellara, Global Vice President Dove Deodorant., states, “We firmly believe that every woman deserves to exude confidence and empowerment in her own skin. Our campaign transcends societal norms, empowering women to #FreeThePits and refuse to let underarm anxiety hinder their potential. What better occasion to catalyze this movement than International Women’s Month?”

“We are immensely optimistic about the transformative impact of this campaign on women throughout the Philippines,” adds Ann Esteves, Philippines Business Lead for Personal Care

Unilever. “Through collective action, we possess the power to challenge harmful stereotypes and foster a more inclusive society where every woman feels esteemed and embraced.”
