Sat Nam Rasayan
Healing Through Consciousness with Hari Das Kaur
April 23 & May 28, 7:15pm-9:15pm
Learn the sacred healing art of Sat Nam Rasayan!
All of us are born with the innate capacity to heal. In this intimate and
experienced class you will learn how easy it is to reclaim that ability.
You will learn an ancient yogic healing system that uses your awareness and
your consciousness as its only tool.
Sat Nam Rasayan is rooted in the healing traditions of Kundalini Yoga.
It is based on the quality of human consciousness that allows it to become
transcendent. Anyone can learn Sat Nam Rasayan! We will begin with pranayams
(breathing exercises) and meditation and then explore Sat Nam Rasayan -
which is performed between a healer/teacher and an individual or group.
SNR has a variety of uses and benefits:
It can alleviate depression, anxiety, stress, or be used to diagnose specific physical
diseases and their root cause. It can also bring a deep state of peace to the healer,
as it requires entering a very high meditative state to an expanded consciousness so
that the healer can "pick up" on the "discontinuity" of energy flow in the subject's
physical and subtle bodies.
Join us for an experience that will change your perception of reality and bring
you a deep state of peace.
