One seasoned Kundalini Yoga and Meditation teacher, Sat Santokh Singh Khalsa, has subtle understanding of the human subconscious mind. He will be teaching a workshop at Sat Nam Fest called “Healing The Wounds of Life.” This 4-day experience can clear deep wounds from the subconscious mind to help a person blossom into a true sense of self-worth and well-being. This intimate workshop offers a deep hypnotic experience in which everyone present is present for one another. Sat Santokh has a unique ability to navigate the spiral energetic of the subconscious mind to confront wounds that have been buried deep into the fabric of a being. He holds space for words to be said and emotions to emerge that will allow complete release.
Whether you are a seasoned yogi with much wisdom from years of practice or you are new to your practice, Sat Nam Fest offers you support, insight, and opportunities for further growth on your Path to Wisdom.
Your thoughts and actions in each moment have unknowable impact on the world. Now is the time to begin your practice. Now is the time to stretch and reach for new growth. Now is the time to build a strong nervous system for the sake of refining your perception through your Subtle Body.
Chanting is a pleasure that transcends the senses, it takes us beyond the bounds of time and space (which is why we don’t have to understand the mantra). Thus it soothes in a most profound way. It soothes on a cellular level. It merges our finite identity with the infinite, and so dissolves us. It relieves us from the sights and sounds and stimulation of the material world and delivers us into a spiritual space, where the sound is God. The material needs are reduced to nothing but mind chatter, and like smoke pumped into the sky, will be scattered into the expanse. Through the sweetness of devotional surrender, mantra turns the negative into positive. I once heard it said: “as music has charms to soothe a savage beast, so the spiritual sound of mantra soothes the restless mind.”
January 7, 2016 marks 90 days before the Sat Nam Fest West. It’s a great time to start a practice that you can complete by April 6, so your festival experience is a celebration. 90 days is the cycle in which your consciousness can firm up a new habit that serves your soul.

Wondering what we will chant during our morning mediations (known as sadhana)?
The deeper one dives into this practice, she may feel intimidated or turned off by the idea of waking every morning at 3:00 AM. If you are coming from another yoga tradition, think of waking early as a kind of asana. It demands the same spiritual and physical mastery as a one-handed tree pose or a head-to-foot pose in the more well-known yoga traditions.
Yogiji said, “I am not creating a new tradition. I am here to unite all the traditions.”
