Thursday Workshops

Sat Siri: Heart As Wide As The World, Live Music with Sirgun Kaur
We live in times of great pressure and stress.
The assault of technology on our senses and psyches is a heavy burden we all carry and have to deal with in day to day living.
As modern Yogis bringing our practice off the mat and into every day life we are asked to as Yogi Bhajan said, “Be graceful, in the most ungraceful times.”
We are constantly and consistently asked to make the impossible possible.
To be the example, we must become the solution or the alternative in every situation.
In order to work, care for our families, keep up a daily practice we need to have a strong foundation.
Establishing a steady naval and a nervous system ready to meet the pressure of these times, to have the resilience that we need to hold space for others in these challenging times.
With this foundation, we can open our hearts to people and situations that seemed impossible previously.
This is the plight of the modern saint and sage, it is up to us to lead the way!
With warrior spirits and tender hearts, we can hold the pain of the world and transmute it with the purity of our love in action.
Wah: Kundalini Dance - Moving with the current of life

There is a Hopi elder saying “Let go of the shore, push off into the center of the river and keep your head above water. Look around and see who is in the water with you and celebrate!” To dance and move with freedom is to let go of the shore. To dance and move in freedom with others it to recognize each other as fellow freedom seekers and to celebrate that there is more then one of us!

We will move our bodies and allow the rhythm to take us, getting out of our own way by getting out of our heads and into our hearts. Dancing is like life, you can let go and allow the rhythm or the current to carry you or are you can constantly be in resistance.

Let’s let go together, let’s celebrate together, let’s trust that the flow of our life will take us exactly where we need to go.

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!

There is a deeper purpose to your pain. Let’s uncover it together.
Every human walking around on the planet has been pained. Trauma comes in all shapes and sizes and it leaves its residue in our mind, body, and Soul. And while we cannot change what has happened to us, we can choose how it will transform us. We can choose what happens next.

This trauma-informed workshop offers a deeper understanding and experiential exploration of the 6 hallmark principles of the Trauma to Dharma™ program. These principles serve as a guide that will change the way you relate to your pain, and awaken you to your dharma: to living a life of purpose, mission and meaning.  For more on her transformative work you can find Dr. Nahai’s newly published book, Trauma to Dharma on Amazon.

Sat Siri: Healing And Self-Forgiveness, Live Music with Bachan Kaur
There is a saying in healing work that “All forgiveness is Self-Forgiveness” and through our practice we get to discover the places in us that we are holding old resentments, old pain and un-forgiveness.
It’s so easy to stay in the blame game of victimhood, or to give as good as we got in anger.
As we go deeper into the inquiry of our own wounds and triggers, we realize the best thing we can do for peace is to just forgive ourselves.
Yogi Bhajan said, “You can never get rid of your fears, you can never get rid of your pain, no matter what effort you make, until you have the guts to forgive yourself. Just forgive yourself.”
Lets do this sacred and integral work together.

Yogi Amandeep: Stop! Sit & Dissolve

Have you stopped or are you still running?

Once the Buddha was walking in a forest and a murderer began to run after the Buddha while shouting stop, stop!

Buddha kept walking, the murderer kept shouting stop. When he saw that this man was not listening to him, in anger he ran and stood right in front of the Buddha.

Burning in anger he shouted, “why did you not stop, why did you keep on walking? Did you not hear me say stop?”

The Buddha looked at him through his compassionate eyes and said, “I have stopped a long time ago, since the day I sat under the Bodhi tree, my running has stopped.”

The Buddha asked the murderer, “have you stopped or are you still running?”

Hearing this he fell at the feet of the Buddha and asked, “how can I too stop?”

A workshop on how to stop the running of the mind and the inner battle that drags on night and day.  A workshop that would reveal the ancient techniques of the Himalayan Sages that was revealed through Baba Sri Chand.

Gurumukh Mark Harris: The Yoga of Intersectionality

Yogi Bhajan inspired African-American Kundalini Yogi’s to see access to yoga as a civil rights issue, getting it to those who need it most. The Yoga of Intersectionality was one result. Intersectionality is where multiple systems of discrimination and ISM’s, intersect and interact. On the yoga mat we can use Triple Kriya, to build resilience. Off the mat we culturally recover, evolve and transform through layers of CRASH (Classism, Racism, Addiction, Sexism, Heterosexism, etc).

Wah: Kundalini Dance: Finding the Joy

Teacher: Wah 

For me dancing and kundalini are the quickest ways to joy. I love nothing more than sharing moments of joy with the people around me. It becomes contagious. Yogi Bhajan said “become so happy that when others see you they become happy too.” This dance is dedicated to starting a wild fire of joy! Let us share this sacred moment where we meet in joy. In this moment it is not about where we came from, or where we are going, it is not about how much or little we have or about how much we have suffered. It is a moment where we both experience the perfection of the Universe that exists right now. It is the place where our spirits meet.

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.

Sirgun: Reclaim Your Happiness, Yoga & Live Music

When the clutter clears, happiness is what floats to the surface. It is our natural state—our default setting. Children know it feels good to feel good. They seek it above anything else. They know that anything less is simply unacceptable. As we “grow up” we learn to settle for less than what we want, and we are taught to see this as noble. It is not. We have forgotten that we are vibrational powerhouses. We have the capacity to tune our body instruments to the frequency of our highest potential. We have the capacity to focus intently on this potential, and allow it to unfold before our knowing hearts and eyes. Happiness is the point. Happiness is the path. And Happiness is where we’re all headed. It’s time to reclaim it!

This workshop will utilize mantras and meditations given by Yogi Bhajan to vibrationally attune us to the highest and brightest version of our SELF. All levels of experience are welcome, as well as all levels of happiness. Come as you are. Live music and instruction will be provided by sacred songstress Sirgun Kaur.

Mahan Kirn: Sat Nam Rasayan

Sat Nam Rasayan® is an ancient yogic healing approach to create and stabilize a deep silent meditative mind.

We will focus on attaining self-mastery and releasing stress patterns in order for you to enjoy your true natural state of bliss, prosperity and joy.

No previous experience necessary. We will work with partners to learn to heal and receive healing. Private healing sessions are available with Mahan Kirn. To book an appointment you can send a request to mahankirnassistant@gmail.com

Siri Ved Kaur: The Yogi’s Approach to Food & Fasting

Kundalini Yoga is far beyond the practice of yoga postures or kriyas. Rather, it is a practical spiritual path unifying everything from how we brush our teeth, take a shower, we comb our hair, and heal ourselves… to what we eat, the kriyas we practice, mantras we put into action, and the meditations we dive into. This is the Mother Yoga, enveloping all, Kundalini Yoga!

For the “what we eat” part, Kundalini yogis keep a vegetarian diet, and many may practice a purely vegan diet. Importantly, though, we want to choose those foods that promote spiritual awareness, physical health, and mental equilibrium. We want to avoid foods that are difficult to digest, taxing or toxic to our bodies, processed, or that otherwise detract from our spiritual, mental and physical well-being. We also care about how those foods are grown and produced, and the love or vibration that we bring into the food as it is prepared.

In this class Siri Ved will talk about some of the essential foods in the Kundalini yogi’s diet and how to prepare them, the specific therapeutic qualities of many foods, and how we can use them both internally and externally, for increasing health, healing, and radiance.

We will also discuss this whole idea of fasting… is it really necessary? Yogi Bhajan gave numerous cleansing diets and fasts. We will look at a few of these, what they are for, is there one for you? and what you can expect to experience. This is a fun and informative class, and you will gain some good insights and food for thought!

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.
