Summer Solstice Trainer Forum Workshops
Compassionate Inquiry with Sat Dharam Kaur
Participants will be guided through a psychotherapeutic approach developed by Dr. Gabor Maté in collaboration with Sat Dharam Kaur that reveals what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world. Compassionate Inquiry, helps to unveil the level of consciousness, mental climate, hidden assumptions, implicit memories and body states that form the real message that words both express and conceal. It allows us to recognize the unconscious dynamics that run their lives and how to liberate themselves from them
Improving your Kundalini Yoga Practice: Postures & Pranayamas with Jap Singh Khalsa
(Taught in Spanish) Jap Singh will share how to avoid injuries to joints, muscles, and ligaments through systematic physical training and develop awareness of the muscles involved in pranayama exercises.
Teaching Teens – Inspire through Experience with Jugat Guru Singh Khalsa
Yogi Bhajan personally shared with me what he wanted me to teach the students at Miri Piri Academy, and we have followed his vision for education as closely as possible every year since then. Teenagers are naturally in a questioning phase of life. They want to examine and understand everything we teach through the logical mind. The key to connecting with them is first being able to share authentically about your own life experience so that they can get past that skeptical frame of mind and open themselves to the personal experience of transformation that Kundalini Yoga can offer. In this workshop we will discuss what works and what doesn’t.
The Power of Call and Response with Snatam Kaur Khalsa (co-taught with Sopurkh Singh and Sat Kirin Kaur)
In the same way that we have methods of teaching posture, breath, or other modalities of Kundalini yoga, the practice of Naad yoga within the teachings also has specific methods. Once we use these methods, students become empowered and can have the opportunity to not only flourish in the healing energy of the Naad, but to also become teachers in their own right. In this session, we’ll learn the power of call and response to give confidence to your students in the practice of Japji, with a focus on the 26th Pauree.
