On Tuesday 15th August 2014, three outreach members from the Yoga Vidya Pranic Healing Trust of New Delhi travelled to Kotdwar, Uttarakhand to present a two hour session on Pranic Healing to our eager and attentive residents. As you are most likely aware the majority of our Pranic Healing sessions take place in our Delhi facility centre, however once a month our dedicated visiting practitioners take time out of their heaving schedule to travel 250km northeast to our Kotdwar centre to give our boys a chance to experience that same peace, power and positivity that has been bestowed upon the residents in Delhi.
A warm welcome awaited Mr. Kishore Vij and his charming entourage who had gone to great effort to create a super interesting and highly explanative presentation about the spiritual science. The presentation was coupled with a short practical session in which our residents took part in two highly integral Pranic Healing practises called “Twin Heart Meditation” and “Super-Brain Yoga”.
The session kicked off with our Kotdwar crew getting to grips with the fundamental aspects of this age old practise. They learnt how the spiritual and bodily rejuvenation technique utilises prana (life energy a.k.a “the breath of life”) to heal the entire physical body. They even had the chance to have their energy bodies scanned for any potential blockages in their chakras. When chakras and nadis (meridians) become blocked then ailments and illnesses can occur. Luckily, auras scanned and chakras checked...the majority of our boys seemed to be hale and hearty!
The PowerPoint presentation went into great detail to explain how Pranic Healing can completely rid a person of their physical and psychological problems. Initially as the session started, many of our younger boys were puzzled and deeply cynical that this was even a real concept...Sending telepathic beams of energy at an invisible point on the body seemed daft. For all they knew it could have been a sugary delight too-good-to-be-true, stolen from the windowsill of Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother, sprinkled with some heady Eastern esoteric knowledge, heated up and served as an enticing spiritual pie. Rest assured, they took a bite of the Pranic Pie and quickly learnt that it was not just a figment of the overactive imagination! There was some sweet truth in the treat indeed. Kishore Ji emphatically told the boys how biological and psycho-spiritual studies have noted that the body’s supernatural ability to heal itself even when medical cures seems to lack effectiveness. The power of positive thought is the main force that permits this body and mind to regenerate in the way it does.
All-in-all, residents gave encouraging feedback regarding the session. Many of our boys claimed to have experienced a tangible reduction in their stress levels and physical pain through the meditations undertaken. They also commented how the Pranic Healing sessions are a great addition to the SHAFA treatment programme and how they hope to see their continuation in the near future. Our warm thanks go to Mr. Kishore Vij and other members of the Yoga Vidya Pranic Healing Trust for their ongoing time, dedication and effort with our Kotdwar residents.
