The Sat Nam Fest Sangat is a community of yoga and mantra lovers who have experienced the transformational power of this Kundalini Yoga and Music Festival. Even if you have not yet attended Sat Nam Fest, this is a great group to support your Kundalini yoga, meditation and mantra journey.
This sangat will help you to keep up with your personal practice, remind you of your inner radiance and boost your inspiration between festivals. It is a beautiful way to stay connected to the people that you meet at Sat Nam Fest, and to make new connections with yogis around the world via social media and the Sat Nam Fest blog.
This community will flourish when you show up and share your unique sparkle of divine light with us.The more we are able to reach out to each other to offer love, support, and inspiration, the more elevated we all become. It becomes easier to sustain our practice in between festivals, and carry the feeling of bliss that we so easily reach at Kundalini Yoga festivals back into our every day lives. We hope you will join us on this journey. We invite you to share your stories, photos, inspirational messages, and your heart as we stay connected between festivals.
We just wrapped up Sat Nam Fest Joshua Tree 2016, 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.
I had never been to Joshua Tree before coming to Sat Nam Fest and that was one of the most amazing surprises of this festival. This land is gorgeous and inspirational. The sunrises, the sunsets, the beautiful stars and the unique flora —- all add so much to the experience of being at this special festival.

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.

Yogi Bhajan once said, “It’s not enough to be a saint; that was the Piscean age. In the Age of Aquarius, you have to make everybody you touch, see and feel, to be a saint. You become the forklift.”
Sat Nam Fest offers everyone a safe, open, energizing space and time to celebrate the soul’s journey to becoming great. Just by showing up in Joshua Tree, California in April 2016, we honor every walk of life as a sacred journey.
The tone of the mantra dissolves the boundaries of my body. I see colors of pinks and yellows radiate out from my heart center. The light expands, encompassing my neighbors, the tent, and the world. As I sing, I feel the heaviness of shame lift from my body. I am weightless, swept up in this current of energy, as though I were floating down a river.
To practice the Bound Lotus Kriya successfully, Maha Kirn says that a person needs to give up trying to attain the perfect posture. Instead, the practice is about embracing the never ending process and the journey of continuous self-discovery. The greatest lesson I have learned from the Bound Lotus Kriya is to surrender. Surrendering is not giving up; but rather, surrendering is the bravest action I can take. Through the practice of the Bound Lotus Kriya, and by surrendering to the experience, I have tapped into a new-found depth in my being to access the courage I need to let go and bow before the Divine. I have found how to let go and trust in Life.
“Bliss – it is a term often used, but many of us do not feel it every day. Bliss is often referred to when talking about another time – past or future – rarely when talking about the present. We felt bliss in a variety of ways at Sat Nam Fest, so it was included in the name of our virtual community – Sat Nam Fest Sangat – Bring Home the Bliss. But how do we make bliss a regular reality in our lives?”
