Through his Inner Engineering program, Sadhguru shows us why raising human consciousness is vital to our survival. In this age of high-powered technology easily available to almost everyone, the one thing humanity is still missing is Inclusive Consciousness.

Creating a Wave of Worldwide Consciousness
Even with all of our modern conveniences and distractions, most people are not happy. They crave something more but aren’t at all sure what that is. After disappointment with the acquisition of things, with relationships, with jobs, where else can a person turn? How can you help yourself and others find a resolution? How can we raise our own and others’ consciousness?
Sadhguru: "Raising consciousness does not mean teaching people something. Raising consciousness means to make them hungry for something more than food, money, wealth, pleasure, and these kinds of things – to make them hungry to know, to make them hungry to become accessible to something bigger than what they know right now. You just have to make them hungry enough, consciousness will rise by itself.

“I've noticed that I am more aware of my actions and feelings. I see now that I have more calm and fun days.
I also have been noticing my views have been changing in a good way. My eating habits have changed. And even my sleeping habits have changed. I try and be more positive and choose to be happy. I'm also taking more control of my decisions and being less compulsive.”
- Kelly Chapman
“I have started living consciously that means I am aware of what I am doing and in this way I have created a distance from my thoughts. My thoughts are still there but I can see them from far without getting tangled in them.”
- Neeti Gogawat
"I have noticed the overall feeling of peace and joyfulness everyday within myself.
From the time I had joined the work I am currently engaged in there have been experiences that have made me bitter and unhappy. This program has enabled me to realize how most of my sufferings have been my own doing. I intend to always carry the inspiration I have gained here within me so that whatever work I am involved and whatever situation I am in I can be blissful and joyful as I am experiencing right now.”
Inner Engineering Improves Wellbeing for Vast Majority of Practitioners. A survey of Shambhavi Kriya practitioners found that doing these practices for a minimum of one year had significant mental, emotional and physical benefits.
The whole system of yoga is based on the spine. Many of our vital functions are regulated by the spine through the autonomic nervous system. There are two components of this system: the sympathetic nervous system (survival/stress response) and the parasympathetic nervous system (restful response). These systems function in a complementary manner – when one is on, the other is off. Yoga helps you to keep the restful response on, thereby creating a chemistry of happiness within you.

When the mind perceives a threat or stressful situation, the body reacts by releasing stress hormones which speed up the heart rate, slow down digestion, increase the breathing rate, tense the muscles, preparing the body to fight or flee from danger. This is also called 'fight-or-flight' response because it evolved as a survival mechanism, enabling people and other mammals to react quickly to life-threatening situations. In ancient times, when we lived in the wild, this was needed for our physical survival, and after the danger was dealt with, we had the time to rest and recover from the assault of survival response on our body. However in modern times, this response can even be triggered by an approaching work deadline, an email from our bosses, even a social media post, traffic, conflicts with our friends or family, or various other seemingly stressful situations. On a regular basis, stress hormones flow into our bodies for events that pose no real threat to our physical survival causing damage to the body over time.
Researchers have studied the long-term effects of chronic stress on physical and psychological health. Over time, repeated activation of the stress response takes a toll on the body. Research suggests that chronic stress contributes to high blood pressure, promotes the formation of artery-clogging deposits, diabetes, digestive disorders, and causes brain changes that contribute to stress, anxiety, depression, and addiction. More preliminary research suggests that chronic stress may also contribute to obesity, both through direct mechanisms (causing people to eat more) or indirectly (decreasing sleep and exercise).
Being restful alleviates chronic ailments and improves your immune system and healing. It also improves mental health by reducing anxiety, stress and depression, allowing you to be happier.
Fortunately, you can learn a technique to counter the stress response with consciously activating Restful response through Inner Engineering, which empowers you to create the chemistry of health, happiness & bliss within you.
