61 Points: A Master Practice for Rejuvenation and Healing

Treasured by yogis and vaidyas (ayurvedic physicians) alike, shava yatra (the 61 points practice) brings us to the potent tipping point between the outer world of the senses and the subtle source of life and intelligence. For spiritual aspirants, this transition to inner awareness is an essential step in mastering the tangle of the senses and mental distractions. For those struggling with difficulties of all kinds, this practice is a sanctuary and healing balm.

In this livestream with Sandra Anderson, learn how the practice of shava yatra (“journey through the corpse”) can awaken and stabilize an inner state of consciousness, enlivening the innate healing energy of the body and loosening the grip of our deep habit patterns.

Join Sandra for this timely discussion and practice, and experience shava yatra, a pilgrimage to 61 points of rejuvenation, healing, and spiritual awakening, in your own body.
