Maharishi Self-Pulse Reading Course


Course Description

Self-pulse reading is the most ancient and most natural means of determining the level of balance or imbalance in the mind and body. This course presents Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s revival of this ancient technology to determine the state of the inner intelligence of the body. Everyone should learn Maharishi Self-Pulse Reading to maintain one’s own health.

Maharishi Self-Pulse Reading allows one to detect imbalances early before they manifest as disease. Reading the pulse allows one to precisely determine where the imbalance is and how to restore balance. Furthermore, pulse reading is therapeutic in itself. Just taking the pulse increases the balance in the pulse and thereby the balance of the whole mind and body. Taking the pulse enlivens the connection between mind and body, consciousness and matter.

The Maharishi Self-Pulse Reading course is a requirement for graduation with the BS in Physiology and Health.
