November regional trainer meetings

In November we will have a Global Follow Up Meeting, to keep Deepening the Dialogue regarding the bigger issues surrounding the maintenance or changing of our existing trademark. We will have a cross-region Reference Team of trainers to prepare that meeting, and the guidance and participation of Just Outcomes as well. Please Save the Date!

Track One (Asia-Oceania Centralized): Sunday November 13th;

Track Two (Western Centralized), Saturday November 19th.

Registration will open soon.


Research papers

We have a new webpage to help you search for and download Kundalini Yoga research papers.  There are 2 very newly published ones as well – one showing that Kundalini Yoga can be effective helping people with Lyme disease, and one showing that practicing Kundalini Yoga increases the size of the hippocampus.


KRI is looking to add new board members

KRI is looking for people passionate about our mission who would be willing to volunteer for this important role. You can see who the current board members are here. You do NOT need to be a trainer to be a board member, so if you know anyone with the skills and inclination, please share these links with others.

If you are so inspired and wish to know more about this role, you can apply here.


Three draft proposals for your review

The curriculum committee has worked on two draft proposals – about online Level One teacher trainings, and about the amount of pre-recorded content permitted in Level One and Level Two trainings.  And the Professional Development Committee is submitting a proposal for consideration regarding professional trainers who don’t want to become leads not needing a mentor. 

All trainers in the ATA are invited to participate in reviewing them, suggesting edits, and eventually voting on them.  The first step is an online discussion, beginning now.  The curriculum committee will then take any suggestions from these dialogues under advisement and may (or may not) edit the proposals.  They will then be brought to the Sept regional trainer meetings, for face-to-face discussion about them.  The notes and recommendations from those discussions will be posted online for everyone to access.  One more round of online discussion will then happen, followed by an online vote.

Level 2 Pedagogy Report: Building Sangat Consciousness

Check out what worked and what didn’t in KRI’s recent Level 2 training.  KRI uses each training program we run as an experimental laboratory to constantly be improving our teaching methods.  We then share the outcomes of these research projects with you.  If you missed the first report, you can find it here.


Qualifying to vote in the upcoming SSSC elections

Leads and Professionals will automatically get a ballot to vote.  You must be relicensed by 8pm Eastern Daylight Time on 8 Oct to be considered as “Active.”  If you still need to relicense, you can do so here.  If you are an intern or an Associate, you can still vote, but you will need to register.  You can do so here, but this must be done (including getting 3 letters of recommendation submitted online) by Sept 13th.

The curriculum committee has worked on two draft proposals – about online Level One teacher trainings, and about the amount of pre-recorded content permitted in Level One and Level Two trainings.  And the Professional Development Committee is submitting a proposal for consideration regarding professional trainers who don’t want to become leads not needing a mentor.
