The Brahama Kumaris Raja Yoga Meditation Centre will today hold a “Nature’s Cure Expo themed “Healing Inside Out”.

Brahama Kumaris is a Hindu worldwide spiritual movement dedicated to personal transformation and world renewal.

Their commitment is to help individuals transform their perspective of the world from material to spiritual, supporting the cultivation of a deep collective consciousness of peace and of the individual dignity of the soul.

Today at their Milton Park Centre they get to explore various options to do with healthy holistic living. Non-Hindus are invited.

Ms Janita Hargoven, one of the organisers, said the Raja Yoga’s Nature’s Cure helps people to balance both their souls and body and giving it the care it needs.

“Generally, we are familiar with body care – exercise, nutrition and physical health. When we look at soul care, it relates to mental well-being.”

She also said holistic health and traditional healing refer to methods that encompass a natural, non-invasive way to restore one’s well-being.

“There will be free talks including anger and stress management, self empowerment and mindfulness,” she said.

Meditation, including eye contact, which is all about re-awakening human connection and a photo booth with a twist will also be part of the event today.

Ms Janita Hargoven explained how holistic health therapies work together to restore well being.

There is meditation, reflexology and physical yoga.

“Meditation involves a simple yet effective technique of harnessing one’s thoughts. Understanding and transforming one’s attitude and learning to see life in a totally different perspective, benefiting the self with a calm, peaceful and focused mind,” she explained.

Reflexology relieves diseases or discomfort by applying pressure on various points of the body as it stimulates and activates any blockages.

On physical yoga she said it involves stretching both external and internal muscles which helps toned muscles, builds stronger respiratory and cardiovascular system and balanced metabolism.
