The soul-stirring experience of a live Kundalini Yoga class with master teacher Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa is really unlike any other. You will laugh, you will cry, you will dance, you will sing, you will sweat, you will push yourself – physically – in ways you never thought possible. . .and in the end, you will walk away with profound, deep, unending gratitude for the experience and for Gurmukh’s candor and wisdom.
Gurmukh will be teaching two transformative classes at Sat Nam Fest East this year:
The Joy of Togetherness – Saturday, August 12th
As we grow to understand and see each other as equals, with loving patience and tolerance, we grow in our hearts, becoming brothers and sisters. Then we experience being a real family, united in strength, discovering we really are all One. Join us as we open our hearts. Let this be the dawning of a new time, a new world, as our psyche grows and expands to encompass all living beings. Together let us expand through the magic of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation, as we dance and celebrate this rebirth of the Pure Family, manifesting Yogi Bhajan’s vision of the Aquarian Age.
Foundation for Infinity: How To Know God with Kundalini Yoga and Meditation – Sunday, August 13th
To reach the subtle realm of Ether where we are by nature boundless and free, we must first set a firm foundation on Earth. In this powerful session we shall move, chant, dance, and launch ourselves into the Realm of Infinity.
Sat Nam Fest was thrilled to catch up with Gurmukh this week, to chat about her experience of Sat Nam Fest and what brings her back to the festival year after year.
Puranjot: What is your favorite memory from Sat Nam Fest?
Gurmukh: I have too many favorite memories that come to my mind. When I’m teaching, live musicians are playing on the stage, and everybody’s energy is so delicious. A magic tornado whirls in and transports us beyond time and space. I absolutely love the sensation that I feel when I teach at Sat Nam Fest.
Puranjot: What are you excited about for this year?
Gurmukh: I’m excited about the rolling grassy hills, the giant trees that have so many stories to tell us, the big sky, and all the people who are there for hugging and for loving.
Puranjot: What can you share about your class at Sat Nam Fest?
Gurmukh: Sat Nam Fest is the easiest place to teach. The people are so willing and so happy. The magic of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation as taught by Yogi Bhajan is in their hearts and Souls The feeling is easy with so much love.
Puranjot: What is your personal practice right now?
Gurmukh: My practice is doing Sadhana, walking, practicing Kundalini Yoga, and going to classes in other forms of yoga, as I travel around the world. The easy and powerful “Guidance Meditation” is my favorite meditation now, and I’ll teach that when I come to Sat Nam Fest.
Puranjot: What is the most important message you feel called to share with your students at this time?
Gurmukh: The power of this teaching has been carrying us for almost 50-years: “Keep up, and you will be kept up!” Do not miss this important festival… a must for you, for your family, for your friends, for your Soul.
Puranjot: What keeps you coming back to teach at Sat Nam Fest?
Gurmukh: I smile whenever I think of Sat Nam Fest. Every time I think of Sat Nam Fest, I see Karan Kahran Kaur. Her smile is contagious. Her love is contagious. I will never miss Sat Nam Fest as long as I am able.
Gurmukh led our closing ceremony at Sat Nam Fest East in 2016, accompanied by Aykanna and an amazing collection of musicians. At the end of the ceremony, she took the entire gathering through an epic “tunnel of love” – an experience we will forever hold in our hearts. Don’t miss all that she has in store for us this year!
