We will review warm-ups and how the silence (shuniya) and self-healing is created through this kriya. The process of binding the self into the symbol of Infinity and what effects can lead to the ability to recognize what Yogi Bhajan called the Projective Meditative Mind and the Healing Art of Sat Nam Rasayan, as taught by Guru Dev Singh. On the second day we will delve further into MahBoundLotus, so you may begin or continue this practice at home. It is a powerful self-healing practice.
