TTEC follow-up

Based on the feedback from the TTEC meeting, Proposal 1 (Simplifying the ATA documentation) was not altered.  But Proposal 2 (Redefining the Roles in the ATA) and Proposal 3 (Draft new Code of Ethics) were both edited. 

Please see the final versions in Sutra at the links below. These are the versions that will be voted on Dec 1 to 7th via online voting open to all trainers.

Proposal 2 (Redefining the Roles in the ATA)

Proposal 3 (Draft new Code of Ethics)


Final Reminder – Help Prioritize some decision making

We will cut off getting input on Friday 3 Dec.  Before then, if you haven’t already, please take this short survey to evaluate a set of possible principles for decision making around key areas such as hierarchy and our future representations of Yogi Bhajan.

These principles came from the Oct 5, 2021 meetings you were all invited to.  They reflect the suggestions from trainers.  This survey will be used to the principles that resonate most strongly with our whole community of trainers.


KRI is recruiting

We are looking for a Marketing Manager (20hrs/wk) and a Reviewer Assistant (10hrs/wk). 

Both can be done remotely from anywhere in the world, and must be fluent in English.  Please email Amrit Singh for more detailed job descriptions if you or anyone you know are interested.


New edition of Reminder – nominate someone as a potential KRI 2022 Outstanding Achievement Award recipient

Upcoming documentary

As a “heads up” to you all, we expect an hour long documentary, produced by VICE World News, about 3HO and Yogi Bhajan to be shown on some major network early in 2022 (we will let you know more precisely when it will air when we find out). 

They have informed us that, “The programme will also look at the allegations of sexual abuse against Yogi Bhajan from members and former members of 3HO. The programme will also hear from members and former members of 3HO who deny those allegations. We look at allegations of harsh living conditions within the boarding schools and ashrams. We also look at allegations of corruption within the businesses of 3HO followers.

Maybe remembering the point of our practice and all our structures and rules and policies – to help deliver spirit, and uplift and serve, to provide a container for the experience of the infinite, which actually cannot be created as any bureaucracy.

Which Principles should KRI be applying?

Please take this short survey asking all trainers to evaluate a set of possible principles for decision making around key areas such as hierarchy and our future representations of Yogi Bhajan.  These principles came from the Oct 5, 2021 meetings you were all invited to – they reflect community suggestions and with this survey we will be narrowing them to the ones that resonate most strongly with our whole community of trainers.
