    Strength to Love

    When we give ourselves to each other in Love, we become fully human. Love is an active force that leads us into greater Communion with the world. Love is somehow the key that unlocks the door that leads to Ultimate Reality. Practice of Love is a means of Spiritual fulfillment. Celebration of Love is a Spiritual force that unites and binds all life.

    When Things Fall Apart

    It takes strong Kundalini Yogis like us to manage the kind of triple threat challenges we are facing right now. At first, it was the shock of the allegations against our teacher and the harm experienced by beloved members of our 3HO family. Then, the universe sent us Covid-19, the fear of which still hangs over us like a murky shadow. Now, the call that Black Lives Matter has blown the lid off of decades of violence and injustices against Black people with the murder of George Floyd at the hands of the police. The actual incident being captured on social media infuriated the world and now, millions are clamoring for change in social and criminal justice systems everywhere. Wahe Guru!

    Build Emotional and Mental Resilience

    This is a precious time for us to come together. Uniting hearts. Releasing fear. Opening to love, inner wisdom, and intuition. This resilience building class focuses first at the navel, awakening power and presence, then guides the energy to the heart, the center of consciousness. Come to experience your own SELF, the ONE is all. Let us unite in the frequency of LOVE and feel the power of connecting through the great cosmic womb, the unified field. Together we are powerful. Together we can positively impact the collective.

    Kundalini Shuniya

    Now, here we are, doing Solstice in our homes instead of at Ram Das Puri, under the beautiful expansive skies of New Mexico. A bit strange for us, but we will do it happily because, if you are thinking like me, these times could be a signal that the real dawning of the Age of Aquarius is upon us. In fact, I personally believe that our road into the Aquarian Age will be paved with challenges, disruptions, confusion, and many personal and cultural shifts. I further believe that those of us who seek to be among the agents of change will have to accept that things do fall apart.

    Consciousness is a Skill the World Needs

    The great challenges we face today as a global society cannot be solved unless we recognize what leads us, internally, to make so many poor choices, externally. When the subconscious rules our perception of ourselves and the world, reality looses importance - and that is when we become less human and less invested in our environment. Kundalini Yoga & Meditation is a therapeutic tool for the individual and an evolutionary tool for society. However, its gifts can benefit many only if they can be shared and taught in a way that is relevant for the world today. Consciousness is a skill. Just like a muscle can be trained, consciousness is a tangible state of awareness that can be learned and integrated, independently of cultural, religious or spiritual affiliations. A systemic change in society must start with a shift in our understanding and experience of how our inner system of consciousness works. Learning to recognize and heal our subconscious load and educating ourselves to hold a stable space of conscious awareness, is a fundamental step that will support any social initiative. In this break out session, we'll meditate, discuss and experience how you can become a positive changemaker embracing the kundalini tools you know, love and have transformed your life, from a new perspective.

    Seva: Wired To Serve

     

    This workshop will explore the elegance of our human body/mind design through a dialogue on seva, and how science is justifying the ancient adage: when you give, you receive. We will discuss the circular nature of energy, that is is always in flow, always changing and exchanging, and that our body/mind, as a result, is constantly in a simultaneous state of giving and receiving. A kundalini yoga set will provide the opportunity to experience palpably in your own body/mind the sensation of giving, and to consider during these challenging times: what qualities of yourself can you share? When, how and, why? Since Liam's discovery of the practice of seva a decade ago, he have been an active volunteer in homeless outreach, animal care, and youth programs, sharing yoga, martial arts, and meditation in juvenile detention centers, prisons, and foster homes throughout New York City. Through helping others, he has developed a sense of meaning and found more joy in his own life.
