August 16, 2021 – Trainer Update

Watch Amrit’s weekly video

I am excited for our future!  Maintaining the integrity of the teachings as they have been, but innovating the methods for teaching them and reaching today’s students.  Innovating models of Teacher Training with mixes of online and in-person, new pedagogy tools, a culture of trainers supporter each other and sharing their tools.  More regional rather than global focus, without losing the precious inter-connections across cultures and continents that are so special in our global Kundalini Yoga school.

More dialogue around the connections between Kundalini Yoga and Sikhis

A group of trainers is interested in further discussions around this topic, and the draft paper that was recently released (you can read it here), and perhaps offered edits or another version.  Anyone interested, please read the draft paper and make personal notes/comments.  Email or WhatsApp Amrit Singh to express your interest, and some zoom discussions will be organized with intention to come together to meet re:what the first paper fulfilled and what other questions/topics are needed for clarity.  From there, the group can decide to propose changes to that paper, or create an outline for a new one, and go from there.  You can also read some prior Sutra dialogue about this topic in these links here and here.

SSSC Sangat Forums

The Siri Singh Sahib Corporation is having an open forum to take questions from anyone in the community on Sept 10th.  See more about the format of this event, and register for it on this webpage.

Inspiration of the power of Group Consciousness

I often find inspiration in the work of Tom Atlee.  A recent blog post of his captured the potential of group consciousness quite well I thought.

“…our mutual inadequacies can become a resource, a way to connect with each other, as we seek to be, see and act with that greater wholeness which is accessible only through each other.  This is why I think it unwise for us to seek perfect wisdom as individuals, but rather to seek to be with each other in ways that help us see beyond our diverse blind spots into greater wisdom, simply because our differences are able to paint a reality that’s bigger, fuller and more life-like than any one of us alone could possibly imagine.”
