Prana (energy) Vidya (knowledge) is an ancient and powerful psychic practice dealing with the system of prana for healing and spiritual awakening. Experience the scientific and esoteric aspects of the subtle breath and body, including practical techniques for awakening the energetic fields. Awaken and manipulate prana consciously, develop subtle awareness to perceive and gain knowledge of the nature of prana which in turn leads to new dimensions of awareness, as well learning to direct this subtle energy for self-healing.
Raja Yoga Course Oct 22nd - 28th 2016 (Munger)
