Wednesday

Woman as Healer

Teacher: Wah, Sukhdev & Dr. Azita Nahai

As women we have all struggled through our own secret battles and fought our own life-sized demons. As women we have all carried the pain of our families and communities- bearing a burden that is no longer ours to carry. The time has come to lighten our load. The time has come to heal this aching world. But in order to heal the world, we must heal ourselves. On the heels of this Me-too Revolution, we’ve had a revelation. Our healing begins the moment we stop denying ourselves and the pain we carry. Our healing begins the moment we are no longer afraid to lean into the pain. It’s time to harness and utilize the thing we’ve feared most~ our own strength and wisdom; to use the power of the Divine Feminine to brave into the depths of our darkness… Because it is the darkness that leads us back to the light of our own healing.

Give your brave and tender hearts the time and space to go deep. Women as Healer will offer you a map to embrace, experience and release those heavy pieces of sorrow, grief, sadness, self judgment, pain, shame, and fear. Join us as we use the science of kriya, mantra, meditation and pranayama coupled with the healing balm of dance and ceremony to burn through our pasts and reclaim our Selves. Fueled by fierce compassion, inclusion and spirited sisterhood come join together in sisterhood as we collectively ignite our Divine Feminine fire. It only takes one candle to light up the dark, imagine what all of us can do together?

Spend the afternoon with Sukhdev, Azita and Wah for an immersed and sacred time of connections, healing, Kundalini Yoga and much more. We will collectively set a beautiful foundation for our Sat Nam Fest experience!

Recovery 2.0: Yoga for a Life Beyond Addiction

Teacher: Tommy Rosen

To walk the path of yoga is to commit to a never-ending evolution of consciousness.  To be active in addiction is to be stagnant.  It is a different kind of commitment that leads to commotion, pain and suffering.  In addiction, we step out of alignment with the Universe’s evolutionary pulse and our development stops.
In the final analysis there is only one addiction – the addiction to avoiding the present moment.  Breaking out of this conditioned pattern is the work all human beings must do.
In this workshop come gain new perspectives, experience the healing power of kundalini yoga and move toward presence.  Come ready to move, breathe, chant and meditate. Let’s work together and be free.

Path of the Spiritual Warrior

Teacher: Gurujodha Singh 

This three-part workshop is a practical exploration of approaching life as a yogi, spiritual seeker, and warrior. Combining Kundalini Yoga, meditation and martial arts, Gurujodha S. Khalsa shares tools and technology for fostering peace in every environment.

If there is disharmony or violence of thought, word or deed, it is the duty of the Spiritual Warrior to neutralize violence, protect and preserve life and re-establish harmony, balance and peace through thoughts, words and action. Such responsiveness requires training and skill.

In this workshop, Gurujodha focuses on the three stages of violence neutralization: Thought, word, and deed through the lens of applied Kundalini Yoga and meditation. This will be followed by a hands on (literally) study and application of violence neutralization techniques based upon joint locks and pressure points.

Gurujodha S. Khalsa is a Sixth degree black belt Instructor of Kenpo Karate and a Kundalini Yoga teacher. He was a member of Yogi Bhajan’s personal security team for many years. He is the originator of a self-defense system entitled The Spiritual Warrior Training System. With a light heart and a fierce spirit, he integrates the philosophies of Kundalini Yoga with a variety of martial arts systems as a foundation for a warrior’s approach to life and peace.

5 Primal Sounds-Activate Your Unlimited Self

Teacher: Akah Jackson

Yogi Bhajan taught, “the ultimate state of mind is called anahat- the Infinite Unstruck Sound or Vibration. It brings intuition, inner strength, and the capacity to be completely open to do what you must do”
As the caterpillar’s infinite self, responds to the call to be a butterfly, likewise, the aquarian age has been signaling us to move beyond the safe limits of our mental cocoon or our limited stories. We are being asked to, Be our True Self Now!” But for some reason our limited self is relating to fear, procrastination, stories of lack, pain, trauma or resentments.
These 5 primal sounds given to us by Guru Nanak, made an over 475 year, journey to remind us of a mantra we can use to experience moving beyond the limited view of our life into being our infinite self, “knowing the unknown and seeing the unseen!”
Come release blocks and free the body’s energetic channels with joyful rhythm, pranayama and kriya to prepare your body as a divine instrument for a chanting meditation with the 5 primal sounds. Bring your Journal!

3rd Eye: Diving into the Hidden Realm

Teacher: Yogi Amandeep

Eyes are your doors for going out. Through them you are seeing, moving, eating etc. All your desires take birth through the eyes. The eyes move the whole world. Eyes are the door for the mind; they go on collecting the outer world into the inner consciousness.

Left eye represents time and right eye represents space. Beyond the left and right eyes, the ancient sages speak about the 3rd eye. The eye beyond time and space.

In front of the two visible eyes lies the visible realm; when the two eyes are shut, the 3rd eye is awakened and one sees the invisible realm.

Learn some great truths about the 3rd eye with practical techniques from the ancient tradition of the Himalayan Sages.


Activating the Seed with Yoga Nidra

Teacher: Dharm Singh & Karena Virginia 

This workshop is an invitation to access the most radiant truth of your being. You can dissolve resistances that have held you back from sensing and expressing with the full loving brilliance that your soul is created to share.

There is an expanded moment that exists between thinking of the past and planning for the future. Within this fertile moment is acceptance of pure self. In this workshop we will create an opening to enter into our seed moment, opening into a field that exists deep within our consciousness.

Into this field we will be sowing an inner seed of personal heart intention. Each of us holds the seed that our our soul knows we need at this time. You may choose to plant seeds of healing, of awareness, of love, of courage, of destiny, of attraction or of divinity. The possibilities are infinite. In the deeply relaxed state miracles happen.

Teachers Karena and Dharm will use yogic breathing, easy kundalini yoga and live music to ready our bodies and minds for Yoga Nidra – an extended period of profound yogic relaxation and deep inner release – and generate an expanded opening of consciousness. Once this field is open we have the opportunity for profound shifts. We will seal the experience with the vibration of mantra and the angelic realm.

This workshop is accessible for beginners and experienced practitioners alike.  Please bring a shawl or blanket to cover your body during the Yoga Nidra session.

Song of the Heart: The Art of Listening Deeply

Teacher: Crown of Eternity 

Learn to listen to the sounds of your heart and your soul. Explore the infinite moment as you attune to your inner sounds and the deepest levels of silence. By listening deeply we open a space of great understanding, self-experience and self-transformation.

This is an inner journey deep into the Self, listening consciously with ears, mind, body and heart. The yogis call listening sunni-ai. It means hearing the sounds, the words, the subtlety—all that is below the surface—at the same time. Sunni-ai is intuition applied to listening. Deep listening, like radar, senses the shape and momentum of the present moment. Come attune yourself to the sound current with powerful meditations, chanting and listening techniques shared by Crown of Eternity.

Power of the Word: An Interactive Open Forum and Experiential Workshop

Teacher: Dr. Haridass Kaur, Ph.D

“The blend of your soul, mind, and body makes you talk. 16 This is the art of vibration. If your mind is off you cannot talk sensibly. If your soul is off you don’t exist. Hence, it is a blending of the three that makes you vibrate. You vibrate anyway, but vibration in the form of communication is effectively recognized when you talk. Word was with God and communicated with maya to create this universe and its beauty. Word is with you. Communicate to create your own world. ” – Yogi Bhajan

Join us for a 90-minute workshop to learn to project with the power of your word. The words you use subtly sculpt and mold your reality. Let’s take an in-depth look of the daily words you use to see how you can manifest your dreams into reality.  Bring your notebook, pen, and be ready to share and learn in a cozy group setting.

Life without Challenge Doesn’t Exist

Teacher: Krishna Kaur 

 

Yogi Bhajan.  We have been raised in the Kundalini Yoga Lifestyle to embrace difficulty with a smile. Yogi Bhajan says, “qualify yourself”.  Qualify that you are part of God and God is part of you.  And, remember, the Divine always gives challenges at the time a quantum leap in spiritual growth is ready to unfold. Yet, the issues taking place these days for many have been quite troubling and perhaps even a bit scary. Which means it is a time to reorganize our neurological system, clear subconscious patterns, and invigorate our intuitive awareness. The scriptures tell us to “see the faults in others, then un-see them”. We want to see the play within the play, step out of duality, and find ‘Shunia’. That is the focus of this workshop.

Kundalini Shunia

Teacher: Mahan Rishi, Live Music with Sirgun Kaur 

Within the meditative unfolding of pure existence, we realize that every facet of self uncovered is a pathway to another dimension of unconditioned presence.

As we cultivate an inner space of clear being we realize our originated state of mind; edgeless, light and free.

Through devotional practices allowing for deep surrender, sattvic consciousness aligns our inner self with transcendent awareness.

This pure state of being, shunia, the experience of absolute silence, creates a gap in the stream of karma that perpetuates our conditioning.  From this lucid realm of being, evolutionary consciousness reveals its own mastery. Feel free to join us for a morning of nothingness….and sublime awakening.

A Quantum shift is a life altering ascension that redefines our view of reality in the now.  Through group consciousness imbued with elevated intention we awaken in a new dimension of being.

Through ecstatic chanting and yoga practices we merge in the indivisible great way of the heart.


The Body Temple: Radical Self-Love for Radical Times

Teacher: Dr. Ramdesh Kaur

Too often we spend our energy putting ourselves down, causing our auras to shrink and our lights to dim. In these crazy times, we cannot afford to waste our life force on anything other than our destiny..the world needs the special gift only we have to offer. Come spend a class super-charging yourself into greater self-love, higher self-esteem, and joyful light so that you can finish Sat Nam Fest with an expanded vision for yourself, a more loving relationship with your body, and a renewed sense of inner vitality. Come fall radically in love with your body temple!


Rise Sister Rise: Owning our Creative Storm

Teacher: Wah, Sukhdev & Azita 

As women we have all battled with our own inner demons: those devilish voices telling us we’re not good enough, strong enough or smart enough. Ah well, we’ve got news. The devil may have whispered in your ear, “you’re not strong enough to withstand this storm.” Today you get to whisper back “I am the storm.”

Yes, The time has come to give a shift. A global shift. The time has come to harness and utilize the thing we’ve feared most~ our own strength and wisdom~ that rising Storm known as The Divine Feminine. This fierce and forceful storm of storms isn’t violent or abusive; destructive or oppressive. She may not play nice, but she is inherently kind. This storm is creative and constructive. She organizes and mobilizes. Fueled by fierce compassion, inclusion and spirited connection she is done staying hidden and quiet. She has risen. She is done feigning sleep. She has risen. And she is no longer afraid of the storm. Because finally she gets it. She owns it. SHE IS THE STORM.

Come join together in sisterhood as we collectively ignite our Divine Feminine fire. It only takes one candle to light up the dark, imagine what all of us can do together?

 


Transforming Anger to Happiness

Teacher: Dr. Haridass Kaur 

Creating new neural patterns to bring you out of isolation, depression, and repetitive haunting thoughts.

In this digital age we are overwhelmed with too much information. Interrupt this tendency and raise your energy through the chakras and realign yourself with the universal cosmic force. Redirecting anger to creativity and joy.

Spiritual Warrior Training: Initiation into the Light

Teacher: Dr. Wendy Harris, Alice Faulks, Live Music with Feather & Dot  

Join us in cultivating the qualities of the Spiritual Warrior within and prepare to emerge from the festival, anchored in your commitment to fulfill your mission. Yogi Bhajan said, “Keep up and you will be kept up” and he gave us tools to manifest the Spiritual Warrior. We will initiate the navel to activate the pure power of Infinity within, meditate to open the higher centers, and connect with sacred sound to raise our vibration and elevate in consciousness. With every breath and every movement, we have the potential to embody our vision at the cellular level and deeply connect to the invisible thread that pulls us forward in our lives.

This workshop is based upon Beyond Addiction: The Yogic Path to Recovery, the Kundalini Yoga and Meditation-based international program created by Sat Dharam Kaur in 2008.

Sat Nam Fest changed my life! It provided a depth of experience so grand that I went from practicing twice a week in my local classes, to performing my sadhana every day. I am struggling with addiction and motivation right now, and feel Sat Nam Fest changed my life. Though my struggle still continues, I feel so empowered. Thank you Sat Nam Fest! Wahe Guru!

Sat Nam Fest was one of the peak events in my life. I made quite a few emotional breakthroughs. I feel so much more energized in my daily practice now. I cried so much at the absolute beauty of the music and everyone chanting and practicing together. I was wishing that it would never end.
