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!

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.

The Flow of Silence: Healing with your Prana

Teacher: Ajeet Kaur

Every person has a deep connection to the flow of prana. Every person breathes, and is alive through that flow of prana. We eat to receive prana, we give and receive prana in our relationships, and we heal ourselves by working with our flow of prana. Yoga heals us by shifting the flow through breath, asana, mantra and awareness. The deeper our perception of this flow, the more healing is possible. The deeper our silence, the more we can sense our own flow and the flow of others. For thousands of years yogis have discovered practices to open new states of awareness by shifting this flow in our bodies, our minds and how we flow with the universe around us.

Join Ajeet Kaur and her band for an experience of self-healing through yoga, meditation and opening our perception to awaken our capacity to heal.


Kundalini Dance to Be “Great & Full”

Teacher: Wah

So much of our time is spent in serious matters of life, come and let loose, be free and reclaim your playful nature. Let us not mistake sincerity with being too serious. Remaining playful and in joy will allow our souls to live free and our lives to thrive. Kundalini Dance is for everyone, it combines the practice and teachings of Kundalini Yoga and dance. Creating a beautiful combo to experience connection, bliss and joy. We will dance between a deeply personal space while being interactive, playful and fun. We always start class with a Kundalini kriya, so come with your mat and get ready for an ecstatic experience!

The pressure of the times is on us and those that learn to master their self through love of self will be called on to serve others in finding their truth.

Developing a Daily Sadhana Practice

Teacher: Satwant Singh

 

An inspiring workshop geared both to students new to the practice of morning Sadhana and veterans looking to strengthen their morning discipline.

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.

Open yourself to a deeper sensitivity that will connect you to life in a whole new way.

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. Achieving Noble Stillness! Grace under fire!

Being Guided by Life Through Your Light Bodies

Teacher: Guru Singh

 

Guru Singh will lead this workshop in mantra, mudra, asanas, pranayams and kriyas to develop a powerful relationship with the light bodies. These are the subtle bodies that Yogi Bhajan taught us to use for connecting to our highest destiny and most successful life on Earth. This workshop will combine great depth as well as liveliness to achieve the full experience.

“Forget the dancer, the center of the ego; become the dance. That is the meditation.” – Osho

Dancing is one of the most liberating meditations and is a deeply powerful way to experience self love. This dance is for the ones who feel like misfits, the ones who think they don’t like to dance. Come and explore with us how we all have a free and wild spirit that wants to move and dance in meditation!
Kundalini Dance is for everyone, it combines the practice and teachings of Kundalini Yoga and dance. Creating a beautiful combo to experience connection, bliss and joy.

The Art of Deep Listening

Teacher: Mirabai Ceiba 

All sounds, the music, our own vibration, is born out of silence and in the same way leads us into silence.

The silence contains everything and nothing, it is the most beautiful music, it leads us to the realm beyond life and death, beyond existence and non existence. In this workshop we invite you to expand your awareness into a mindful and profound listing through the interplay of sound and silence, which are the the basic principles of Naad Yoga – the Yoga of Sound. The music, the chant creates a vibration, and when it is gone it leaves a space of silence, a taste of eternity. It is in this moment that all of our worries and fears about our lives and ourselves may suddenly disappear and we can experience a tremendous freedom. The freedom of the infinite spirit which we all are. Join us and learn to let your spirit soar!

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!

Jesse

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.
