Have you heard of Therapeutic Touch (TT)?

TT is a modern interpretation of an ancient healing practice in which a practitioner uses his/her hands as a focus to facilitate the body’s own natural healing process. The body is an energy field that extends beyond our skin, “the aura” that flows freely in a state of health. TT helps restore this balance and order in the person’s aura especially in a state of illness or injury. It brings “relaxation, self-healing and a sense of wellbeing”*.

Join us May 16 from 8-9 PM for an evening of peace and healing. Free 10-15 minutes TT sessions will be offered during the educational hour to at least 8 people who register at TAO. There will be information and opportunity to book a session at a later date.

* For more information visit www.bctherapeutictouch.com or www.ttnc.ca

Four Points of Rightness

Four Points of Rightness

Four Points of Rightness

The flowering of all of you depends on the rightness you live as you.

The Four Points of Rightness are four parameters in which we can discover the rightness we are to live as us, and in doing so we live as an effector, not being impacted by life. It is not a new rightness being imposed, it is the rightness that is already there in all of us as a being.

In this revolutionary teaching by Dhyan Vimal, he offers a way for one to live a life which is a blessing to oneself and all. Dhyan Vimal's teachings over the last 30 years guide one to discover the way of living in rightness and in alignment iwht life, and therefore the best of oneself unflods.

During this study, the inquiry into life situations and the observation of the four parameters will reveal the wrong structures that we have unconsciously accepted. In this process, we will naturally re-establish the rightness within that is inherently present and discover new ways of approaching realtiy.

Introduction Evening
Date: Friday, March 9
Time: 8-9 pm
Venue: Cafe by Tao, 210-150 Esplanade West, North Vancouver
Fee: FREE
Contact: hamid.seshadri@dvinstitute.com
