Master Course: Essentials of Yoga Health & Self Healing
with Swami Sitaramananda and Swami Dharmananda
June 9 - 16, 2024
The process of what we call holistic healing is not just healing of the physical body and the mental body but it is seeing under a different light your own Self. The Self, the Atman, is compared to the shining radiant Sun, giving light and life to all around. Self- Healing is allowing your consciousness to enlighten yourself so that you understand that the body and the mind are your instruments, and you are not making the mistake that your body and your mind is your Self.
The Yogic and Vedantic approach to Self-Healing is based on the subtle understanding of a philosophical, consciousness-based interpretation of reality. Self-Healing is about treating the total person where the Self, the Atman, occupies the central role, governing the body and mind from within. From this perspective, we know what to do to discover, strengthen and protect the connection to Self. It is the complete spiritual path offered to ready spiritual seekers and health-conscious individuals in a nut shell.
