SKY Happiness Retreat
The SKY Campus Happiness Program is a 3-day retreat session (Sept. 25-27) that incorporates an empirically-validated curriculum. The cornerstone of our retreat includes SKY Breath Meditation (Sudarshan Kriya) whose effects have been studied in open and randomized controlled trials, both in healthy populations, including developmental populations, and in those with psychopathology.
A randomized controlled study run by Yale University scientists evaluated the effect of SKY and two other programs - Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Emotional Intelligence - on undergraduate well-being as compared to a control group. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction showed no improvement compared to the control group, Emotional Intelligence showed one improvement (mindfulness), and SKY had the highest results of all the programs, benefiting stress, depression, mental health, mindfulness, positive emotion, and social connectedness.
