Coming VICE documentary

We’ve received word that the VICE program, “True Believers”,featuring the SSSC and 3HO, will begin airing on 11 April 2022. While we have not yet seen the show ourselves, sources have indicated that the coverage of our organizationsand the practiceof Kundalini Yogais likely to be slanted and may paintan unbalanced picture of our communityand practices. We have prepared some basic information here to assist you, if needed, in dealing with the impact of this program.

Global Meditation to project for peace

We encourage everyone to be chanting the “Sat Narayan Wahe Guru, Hari Narayan Sat Nam” mantra to project for the end to all wars around the globe. 

3HO Europe has organized a daily online practice that anyone can join via their website

More transparency

At your request, KRI has a new webpage that describes the standing committees, how you can participate, links to previous meeting notes, etc. Check it out here.

Diversity Equity & Inclusion

KRI’s goal is to have our Level One graduates, members of the ATA, KRI’s staff and KRI’s board of directors to be fully representative of the communities we serve – and that means representative across all dimensions (such as race, gender and sexual identity, geography, socio-economic status, education level, etc.). We aren’t there yet, and so we need to keep inquiring about why. Why are there so few trainers of color? Why are the percentages of Level 1 graduates of color less than in the broader community? Until we can understand and address these issues, we won’t be as effective as we need to be in sharing the technology of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation. A piece of this is our annual demographic survey – which will be part ofthe trainer licensing process this summer.
