The Miracle of Healing Hands
The Miracle of Healing Hands with Dr.Waheguru Singh
A two-part workshop of Ancient Yogic Healing & Massage Techniques as taught by Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D. and Master Healer. Based on the reference book “The Miracle of Healing Hands” - The complete Guide to Ancient Yogic Healing and Massage Techniques. — For both beginners and experienced healing practitioners.
This Miracle of Healing Hands Workshop is designed to help both beginner yoga students and experienced practitioners to learn and practice ancient healing techniques in a group setting. Since the students pair up early in the workshop, both people in the pair get to experience being the “healer” by doing the treatment on his or her partner. On each day you will both give and receive these clothes-on treatments. We switch so that the “healer” gets to feel the “healing hands” of his or her partner, so everyone sees what its like to be on both sides of the healing coin: Healer and Client. These amazing healing techniques which the class explores were treatments taught (created) and given by Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D. - Master Healer and Master of Kundalini Yoga.
— Learn The Three Laws Healing - how to practice and apply them
— Learn Multiple Hands-on Healing techniques
— Explore the Healing Capabilities of your own Healing Hands
— Finish the workshop with Simple Effective Hands-on Healing Techniques you can use with friends, family & co-workers
Dr. Waheguru S. Khalsa is the author of “The Miracle of Healing Hands”. He is a licensed Chiropractor with advanaced training in oriental medicine. For 36 years he has maintained a practice in Los Angeles combining healing techniques with chiropractic adjustments, diet, and nutritional counselling, and kundalini yoga.

Body as a Sacred Temple
Being a Human is a Cosmic Experience, right? Do you Ponder the Magnificence of your Physical Body? Do you really take time to appreciate the super intelligence of all that functions harmoniously to keep you alive? It is said that this Physical Body has a certain number of breaths and when those run out, our physical body returns to the elements. Let us Dive in our physicality, embody infinity and experience ourselves as a Sacred Temple.
In this workshop we will focus on our relationship to the physical body. How do we perceive ourselves? How do we care for ourselves? How do we expand our self awareness to experience the truth of who we are? Infinite Beings having a Human Experience. Using practical tools such as breath, asana (movement), mantra and meditation, we will experience ourselves. It is said that even the angels in heaven are envious for it is through this human experience that we discover the multi-facets of our true nature.
Together, we will explore simple & effective tools to clear the gross and subtle bodies, opening channels to merge with the Infinite. Enter the stillness within and discover your Inner Temple through yoga technology, coupled with teachings on health & nutrition and time in nature. Deepening this awareness with the infinite self, we will open doorways to fully embrace and celebrate this human journey!
We are the sacred temple, we are the holiness!

White Tantric Yoga® is a one day meditation workshop, facilitated in 37 cities around the world. As an integral part of the Kundalini Yoga experience, thousands of people have continued to benefit from this mystical tradition for 40 years since Yogi Bhajan first taught it openly in 1971.
Our minds release 1000 thoughts per wink of an eye. Some of these thoughts get lost in the unconscious, and some get stuck in the subconscious and affect the conscious mind. White Tantric Yoga enables you to break through these subconscious blocks, so you can have a more enjoyable life. In the shortest time, you can experience release from a lot of the burden you carry in your mind.
White Tantric Yoga is done in pairs as a group meditation. You sit facing a partner and follow instructions for meditation given on video by the Mahan Tantric, Yogi Bhajan.
A representative of the Mahan Tantric will be present to facilitate White Tantric Yoga. The original facilitators were chosen personally by Yogi Bhajan from members of his staff. Since his passing the Board Members of Humanology and Health Science, which manages White Tantric Yoga, have used the profile he created for choosing new facilitators. Currently all White Tantric Yoga facilitators have studied personally with Yogi Bhajan. The facilitator's role is one of ensuring the methodology given by Yogi Bhajan is carried out, and helping participants maximize their experience.
Each workshop consists of between six and eight kriyas that incorporate mostly: a sitting position (sukhasan), a hand position (mudra), a breathing technique (pranayama), a mental focus, and/or a mantra. These kriyas vary in length from thirty-one to sixty-two minutes. There are breaks between each kriya and a vegetarian lunch is provided.
There are no prerequisites for participating in White Tantric Yoga. Beginners will tune into their internal energies and enjoy a deep and sometimes challenging meditative experience. More advanced meditation practitioners will deepen their experience and make new inroads to their spiritual awareness.
Online advanced registration will close at 6 pm (Vancouver, B.C time)
