Siddhis: Supernatural Yogic Capabilites | Eddie Stern #065
Aug 12, 2021 Season 1 Episode 65
Dylan Smith: Ayurvedic Practitioner, Holistic Health Educator, Conscious Entrepreneur

"Siddhis" are extraordinary human realisations that yogis have been trying to attain for millennia.

And many have been successful, because Siddhis are dormant non-local potentials that exist in every Consciousness state.

A Siddha is one with perfected human capabilities.

One who has sequenced the capabilities of Absolute Totality ("Brahman") to become the perfect (most relevant) expression of “Dharma" (the most evolutionary thing you can be doing in any given moment).

Join Eddie Stern and Ayurvedic practitioner Dylan Smith as they discuss the Yoga Sutras of Maharishi Patañjali, one of the most well-known yogic texts that described these mystical "siddhis".

🌿 A comprehensive overview of Patañjali Yoga Sutra's
