We just wrapped up Sat Nam Fest Joshua Tree 2017, and our hearts are singing from the heart-opening connections made with our soul family from all over the world as we gathered together in the spirit of Oneness. It was so beautiful to participate in the growth and transformation of every Sat Nam Fest participant during our time together.
Sat Nam Fest Berkshires is right around the corner! Whether you are Camping, Glamping or in a Hotel – make sure you know what to bring. Here are the tips & tricks of packing for Sat Nam Fest!
We are so thrilled to have Ramdesh join us at Sat Nam Fest East this year, leading one of our extended Wednesday workshops!
The third practice we would like to share in this Yoga on the Go! series is a concentrative meditation, with beautiful breathwork and mantra, known as Pauri Kriya.
As a householder, a working person, if you invest just 9-minutes a day, you can be fresh, young and you. That’s all it takes to penetrate the chakras, organize yourself, bring the elements into balance and control your breath.
A new series – Yoga on the Go! – quick and effective ways to incorporate Kundalini Yoga practices throughout our day can support us in staying grounded and calm in the midst of any unexpected circumstances we may face.
Wondering what we will chant during our morning mediations (known as sadhana)?
“In other words, as you vibrate, the Universe vibrates with you.” –Yogi Bhajan
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.”
IN YOUR WORDS
Here is to our health as yogis!
We often have people contact us who wish to come to Sat Nam Fest, but who are concerned they won’t fit in. “I’ve never done Kundalini Yoga before.” “Do I have to wear white?” “What’s the deal with the head coverings?” “I don’t really do much yoga.”
