The Sat Nam Fest family is infinitely grateful to Wah.  Her energy, her radiant beauty, her life story, her appreciation for dance and music give us reasons to smile.  We had questions for her, and her replies give a sense of her spirit.  Come to the Wednesday Woman’s Workshop at Sat Nam Fest Malibu Canyon this April, and be in the presence of this graceful and wise lighthouse.

What is your vision and intention for your Wednesday workshop at Sat Nam Fest West this April 2019?

Wah: We will create an environment that will allow us to experience the power we hold as a collective.  There is a thread that runs through every woman, and it connects us to each other.  When we connect to the common thread of divine consciousness, we instantly understand each other, and when we understand each other, we trust each other.  This is our power.  Our dream is that everyone feels that she is part of this web; she is a strong thread that holds us all.

 

What keeps you energized and committed to your practice?

Wah: I love teaching and watching people light up after a kundalini class.  I love seeing the transformation that can happen after just one class.  This keeps me going and growing.  You can only be as good a teacher as you are a student.

What do you think is a secret to maintaining beauty and well-being as a woman?  

Wah: Find and live your Dharma.  Life is short and each of our souls came to this lifetime to live a purpose and learn some lessons…  The more quickly we learn, the higher we go.  We spend less time in drama and more time in our dharma.  This is what leads to a deeply fulfilling life.  And to me, this is living well.

 

 

Have you ever been to Malibu Canyon?  How do you feel about the new location for Sat Nam Fest this year?

Wah: I love Malibu.  You have the mountains and the ocean!  What more could one ask for?  Except community, but we will have that too.  Honestly, I feel as long as we are all together creating sacred community, we will make anywhere special.

Do you have a favorite Yogi Bhajan / inspirational quote; or can you tell of a moment when you encountered a wise quote that worked to uplift you?

Wah: “You are the master of your destiny.  You are the leader of your day.  You are the light of your life.  You are nothing but a representation of God on this planet.  That is the Will and decree, and that is God.  In God you dwell, and God dwells in you.”  Yogi Bhajan.

I love this quote because it makes us turn inward; it makes us take responsibility to be great if we want to be great.  We do not need to wait for anything or anyone, we are the master of our own existence.  This is our power!
