Spirit of Seva Project

What is the Spirit of Seva Project?

The outreach programs of Soul Lightening International range from community wellness training programs and service projects to global outreach and research initiatives. Our affiliations with like-minded organizations help us put the extraordinary gifts of Soul Lightening Acupressure into the hands of people around the globe.

In many cultures around the world there is a practice of giving service from the heart. Giving to another person with no expectation of personal gain (Seva) benefits the giver as well as the receiver. Such acts of compassionate service demonstrate how we are connected to all beings and share in their well-being. We believe that this kind of selfless service promotes a spirit of authenticity, honesty, integrity, and generosity that is deeply needed in the world.

Soul Lightening International is always seeking opportunities to work alongside other organizations with a strong commitment to compassionate service.

Zero Balancing Health Association
Developed by Fritz Smith, MD in the early 1970s, Zero Balancing is a powerful body-mind therapy that uses skilled touch to address the relationship between energy and structures of the body. Following a protocol that typically lasts 30 to 45 minutes, the practitioner uses finger pressure and gentle traction on areas of tension in the bones, joints and soft tissue to create fulcrums, or points of balance, around which the body can relax and reorganize. Zero Balancing focuses primarily on key joints of our skeleton that conduct and balance forces of gravity, posture and movement. By addressing the deepest and densest tissues of the body along with soft tissue and energy fields, Zero Balancing helps to clear blocks in the body’s energy flow, amplify vitality and contribute to better postural alignment. A Zero Balancing session leaves you with a wonderful feeling of inner harmony and organization.
