New Draft Policy Under Discussion – Online Level One Trainings

In 2020, we instituted a temporary policy that allows up to 100% online Level One trainings, with permission.  We had a directional vote in late 2021 that indicated that YES, the ATA wanted to see a permanent policy that was similar.  The Curriculum Committee has worked on a draft policy around online Level One programs.  Comments are being collected at the in-person trainer forums in the US and Europe this summer.  And of course, online comments here for everyone in the ATA can be posted in Sutra here.  Please let us know your thoughts – and your recommendations to improve this policy.

New Draft Policy Under Discussion – Changing the wording of the Level One Requirement for an Intensive Meditation Day

This draft will also be discussed at the in-person trainer forum in Europe, and is available for your comments on Sutra now.  The current Certification Requirements reads, “Participated in either 5 rebirthing kriyas, or one full day of group Kundalini Yoga-based meditation (such as White Tantric Yoga).”  Now that WTY is being offered in more places once again, we are proposing to change this requirement to: “Participated in a White Tantric Yoga course.  If there are clear circumstances that prevent attendance of a White Tantric Yoga course, the student can choose an alternate, deep, group Kundalini Yoga meditation experience (either 5 rebirthing kriyas, or one full day of group Kundalini Yoga-based meditation) as offered by any KRI licensed trainer.”  Your voice is important, so please participate in the online discussion or at an in-person meeting!

Level 3 Applications for Asia/Oceania Still Open

We are still planning an in-person event, to really immerse in the Level 3 spirit and build the community and support you need to go through this journey of realization. To make this possible, we need you to apply and register soon!

  • The DATES for the In-person Mela are October 28, 29, 30
  • The LOCATION is Baan Phu Waan, 1-hour drive from Bangkok
  • The Arrival date would be October 27
