Known as the Song of Bliss, chanting Anand is one of the most powerful ways to lift one’s consciousness out of depression and negativity. In Kundalini Yoga, the combination chanting both the english mantra for beauty and the opening of Anand Sahib is a powerful formula for endless joy.
It brings you directly into a greater state of bounty, bliss, and beauty. On this night, we will learn to chant this powerful mantra and connect to this energy field. Please feel free to bring your cushion/pillows for an experience of deep meditation and gong relaxation afterwards. Those who pre-register will receive a copy of the lyrics ahead of time.
"You are uplifting somebody to the next stage of level to get them out of the depression and give them the impression that life is bountiful, beautiful and blissful for them as it is for everybody." —Yogi Bhajan
A Kundalini Master Class with Guru Dharam
'The two teachers' are the influence of Saturn and Jupiter in our lives. In traditional Western astrology, they are known respectively as the 'great malefic' and the 'great benific' in a polarity exerting the challenging influence of Saturn, and the easy beneficial influence of Jupiter.
Yogic lore teaches us that Jupiter blesses us with expansion, wisdom and divine knowledge. Saturn teaches us that its qualities of constriction, karma and discipline lead to refinement, purity and strength, essential qualities of the spiritual seeker.
Harmonizing the two teachers gives you a singularity of purpose and a one pointedness of mind that brings success, balance, and peace of mind to your life.
Please bring a yoga mat or whatever you need in order to be comfortable!
A Workshop for Understanding Who You are & What You are Supposed to Do with Randhir
What am I supposed to do with my life? With growing consciousness comes more questioning of your decisions, of the way your life is going. Many of us find themselves at crossroads today, troubled by doubt, insecurity, and drained by meaningless activities and unfulfilled lives. We are meant to do something that only we can do. We know deep inside that if we find our purpose and live it, we will be saved. But what is it? And how do we know?
In this workshop, we use various techniques—including Kundalini Yoga, partner exercises, and self-analysis—that put us in touch with our authentic self, that help us identify who we are, and enable us to hear our life’s calling. Inspired by the messages of the Bhagavad Gita—the ultimate book about your life’s purpose—we move closer to our truth. Open to all levels. Please bring a notepad.
The Gong represents the primordial sound of the universe. It represents the omnipresent naad of the universe which pervades all sentient beings. Most importantly, the gong is a tool to bring about the Nada, the nothing…the deep inner silence where we communicate directly with the divine.
This intensive will cover the philosophy of the Gong as well as different techniques for creating your own unique style. We will cultivate an awareness for The Gong that will combine knowledge and intuition into a powerful healing. We will utilize Yogic technology and traditional sound healing protocols. If you have a gong please feel free to bring it.
Lunch will be 45 minutes. Please plan accordingly.
These are stress-filled times we are living in. Some days feel like we are being pulled in a thousand directions. To-do-lists, the pressure of technology, endless e-mails, the madness of social media, the 24-hour news cycle that puts endless pressure on our already frayed nerves...all of it can put our minds and our lives in a spin.
We, as Yogis, know with this technology of Kundalini Yoga that there can be another way to live. A way where we connect to our breath, where we go within and reset. Where the outside world no longer hooks us into its endless chaos.
The mantra Hummee Hum Brahm Hum literally means that we are the spirit of God, of the Divine. We have everything we desire, crave for, and run after already within us. It is a returning to that truth. It is a profound remembering.
Living by the beat of our own hearts, the mind surrenders, releases its tight grip, and we can then enjoy the bliss and true joy of this human experience. Please join me for a night of yoga, meditation and chanting to return to the beautiful wisdom of living in accordance to our own hearts
"Love is the ultimate state of human behavior, where compassion prevails and kindness rules." ~ Yogi Bhajan
