The “Inner Engineering Program” (Online) consists of 7 steps. The first 6 steps are self-paced and can be taken as per your convenience.
The 7th step involves the transmission of the powerful Shambhavi Mahamudra Kriya. This is offered live only on select dates.
Because this is a step-by-step process, you will not be able to attend the subsequent session if you miss or drop out of any of the previous sessions.
It is optimal to complete the 6 self-paced steps within 7 days, and attend the Transmission of Shambhavi Mahamudra Kriya the next available weekend. However, if this is not possible, please ensure that you complete the program through Step 6 within a maximum of 30 days after your registration date.
Due to the nature of the program and to allow for an experience as close to the live programs as possible, each step is designed to be watched only once. However, to ensure seamless experience and to support you go through each step in its entirety, we are offering a one-time rewatch upon request, for steps 1-6. Please note that it's possible to re-watch a step only once.
This is not applicable for Step 7.
