Every first Sunday of the month.

 

Sunday, January 5, 2pm.

Everyone has an innate capacity for healing: to heal others and to help others heal themselves. This class  focuses on how individuals can access their own healing abilities. The purpose of healing is not just to rid individuals of diseases and to restore that which has been lost. The purpose of healing is to come into balance in the present moment. Sat Nam Rasayan is believed to be the oldest known method of healing. Participants will learn through meditation and focus how to enter a transcendent realm and have an opportunity to practice this sensitive process of healing. This healing practice leads to awareness, balance, inner happiness, peace and flexibility—the essence of healing.

$18/M, $20/NM.

Lead by Hari Das Kaur

Every first Sunday of the month.

 

Sunday, January 5, 3-4pm.

Come experience a non-invasive healing method that addresses physical, mental, and emotional conditions. Profound results are often experienced and relaxation is guaranteed. While the recipient lies down comfortably, the healer, through a deep state of meditation, addresses the condition and provides relief for the particular suffering. SNR (Sat Nam Rasayan®) in the Sanskrit language means “To dwell in the place of peace.” It is an ancient healing method of the Kundalini Yoga tradition that brings deep calmness to your mind and a state of harmony and health to your life.
