Metaphysical Healing Techniques

October 11, 2014 9:30 am – 12:00 pm in Bothell

Energy healing is the true source of all healing. Even prescription drugs can only help stimulate the flow of life force in the body for healing. Energy healing goes to the source of our body’s own healing capacity and thus can aid in promoting healing and vitality. Paramhansa Yogananda distilled the essence of India’s ancient metaphysical healing techniques and in this workshop we will explore some of them.
