Non-profit educational and humanitarian organization, The Art of Living Foundation, introduces SKY Meditation as an open window to reduce PTSD among veterans through a recent study
The team at The Art of Living Foundation is staying true to the philosophy of promoting a stress-free mind and a violence-free society as preached by the founder of the organization and spiritual teacher, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, with the nonprofit announcing the introduction of SKY Meditation to veterans. The Art of Living Foundation has grown to become the go-to resource for stress management and wellness, attracting people from all walks of life backgrounds and religious orientations.
“PTSD is widespread among our Veterans. And yet, our first-line treatment–cognitive processing therapy– works only 60% of the time. This is why offering alternative and complimentary therapies for Veterans is so vital. I am pleased to report that in our Randomized Clinical Trial, we found Sky Breathing Meditation (SKY) to be non-inferior to CPT for treatment of symptoms of PTSD. These results open the door for our Vets to gain access to treatments such as SKY which may be more cost-effective, preferable, and more effective for some.”

The introduction of SKY Meditation to veterans is timely, considering the widespread of PTSD. The Art of Living Foundation conducted a study recently, publishing a paper in BMJ Open titled Randomised clinical non-inferiority trial of breathing-based meditation and cognitive processing therapy for symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder in military veterans. SKY Meditation was developed by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, blending ancient Vedic wisdom with a modern sensibility for a new paradigm of leadership and living – a stress-free, violence-free society. Over the years, research has shown the immense mental health and overall well-being benefits of the technique, helping to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma. Consequently, the introduction of SKY Meditation to veterans will undoubtedly help create a safer, better society.
