Key principles to guide KRI’s changes

On October 5th we had two sets of conversations facilitated by Just Outcomes. 

Participants began a process of enumerating key principles to guide our collective work around the role of hierarchies within the Academy, and how best to hold space for Trainers’ diverse relationships with the legacy of Yogi Bhajan.

Some of us KRI staff are still organizing the notes from these meetings, and we’ll reflect back in the next trainer update email the principles that emerged and an invitation to an activity where all of you can help take the next steps with these principles.

Just Outcomes will facilitate circles with trainers interested in deepening the conversation we started at the last Global Summit.

The prompt for these calls will be: “KRI is in a process of deep reflection on two intersecting issues: the role of hierarchies within the Academy, and how best to hold space for Trainers’ diverse relationships with the legacy of Yogi Bhajan. As the ATA moves towards decisions related to these issues, what are the most important principles that need to be upheld in these decisions?”

There are two-time options, both on October 5th (October 6th for Asia and Australia):

Time Option 1: 7:00 – 10:00 AM, PDT (Los Angeles Time)

Time Option 2: 4:00 – 7:00 PM, PDT (Los Angeles Time)


How to become a Mentor

As you may know, we have recently implemented a new pathway for becoming a mentor.  You can watch some short videos explaining this new pathway (on YouTube so with automatic subtitling in many languages), and/or read about it here, in the “Mentor” section.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Sarb Jit.


Quarterly Regional ATA Meetings

As part of KRI’s response to the ATA’s expressed need for more localization and distributed authority, beginning in early 2022, KRI will sponsor quarterly Regional Meetings for Trainers and one Global Trainer Summit for all of us to come together. 

In place of the single, annual, in-person trainer forums in many places around the world, this new system will give all trainers 4 opportunities per year to come together.  Each region will have two online and one in-person (COVID permitting and with an online option where possible) meetings per year.  And we’ll continue to have one global trainer summit online each year. 

The Regional meetings will be an opportunity to: connect with trainers who serve in the same the region and address regionally specific issues, to discuss proposals for new policies that will be voted on online later, for discussion on topics of common interest, for orientation to the Academy for new trainers, and to connect with KRI staff.


Free, limited counseling available

In light of the conversations that have taken place within the community over the last 18 months, the Siri Singh Sahib Corporation has approved funding for a counseling initiative to help support members of the community in their processes of healing.

The program’s goal is to provide support for community members who wish to seek counseling or therapy related to their experiences in the 3HO community.  Eligible participants will be reimbursed up to $2,000(USD) per person for their out-of-pocket counseling or therapy expenses.

Additional details about this program can be found on this information and enrollment form (translated versions of this will be available shortly).  We hope this counseling support will be helpful for all who use it. If you have questions about the counseling support program, please email counseling@epsweb.org.

(Japa@kriteachings.org)

If you want to try Kundalini Yoga Therapy, please look at Elements & Alchemy, offered by the Guru Ram Das Center for Medicine & Humanology as a pilot for our Bridges to Yoga Therapy program. Don’t delay, course launches Oct. 7th.


Free Webinar for Trainers with Gurumukh Mark Harris

All Trainers are invited: Prevent burnout and deepen our self care to move towards truly helping this world in these challenging times. A special free webinar for our community to meet Gurumukh Mark Harris and understand yoga as a movement for social change! Once registered, the replay will be yours for free if you watch it and can be reused as material for level ones to explain outreach to specialty populations, and how to prevent burnout for yoga professionals.


The Experience of Awareness: Joy, Energy & Healing

As trainers we all want to be effective, authentic, and elevating. This global pandemic has raised our levels of anxiety, fatigue, and stress by 40-70%. At the same time, it brought a great disruption that led of us many to look inside to clarify our values, to find the courage for a new level of commitment and integrity, and to find meaningful actions to connect with others and make a difference in our world.

All teachers are invited: Deepen your meditation practice; Expanded Awareness for Joy, Energy and Flow; Peace and equanimity from anxiety and overwhelm.

You can access KRI’s annual report for the period July 2020 to June 2021 here.


Reminder – TTEC meetings coming up

Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 28, 29 and 30 October.  There will be (we think) 3 proposals – one discussed each day.  There will be two tracks each day to hopefully accommodate all time zones.


How do Adults Learn Best?  Become a Better Trainer with Easy Pedagogy Tips.

KRI is offering a free one-hour webinar on 11 November at 17:00 Central European Time, (11:00 in New York, 13:00 in Belo Horizonte). 

It’s valuable for us trainers to stop and ponder our own teaching from time to time. Whether we are interns or experienced trainers each of us has questions about pedagogy – the how of teaching.  How could this be taught more effectively, how to increase interaction, how to bring in something new, how to gain confidence, how to be more inclusive? If we are lifelong learners ourselves, we also have the opportunity to be empowering trainers. In this discussion session, you will get new ideas for teaching on L1 trainings. 

There will be room for pedagogy-related questions and sharing of best practices. The event will be hosted by Jagat Prem Kaur from Finland, who is a professional adult educator and a professional trainer. 

To attend, simply open this zoom link at the correct time: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82622886146.


Just Outcomes Update Letter to the Community

As a reminder, you can sign up on the Compassionate Reconciliation website, which is available in multiple languages, to receive regular email updates about this process.  The update (posted in the News section) from 3 Sept, includes invitations to several upcoming free workshops (Circle facilitation training, An Introduction to Restorative Justice) and Q&A sessions.


Special Trainer discounts on these upcoming online workshops!

In service we have curated the following E-Learning Courses with Special Discount codes 15-20% off for ALL Academy Members:

The Yoga of Intersectionality: African Roots of Kundalini & Social Justice

Intersectionality is where multiple external systems of discrimination and internalized oppression intersect, interact and force multiply. What we call social justice and civil rights struggle, has a millennia long history and praxis, rooted in cultures of tradition. If we explore the civil rights/social justice movement through our understanding of yoga; the inner warrior for social change emerges.

Elements and Alchemy

We are so pleased to announce that we are co producing a Kundalini Yoga Therapy course. If you are a yoga teacher that wants to go deep and understand the medicine of the meridian system and how asana incorporates meridian flow, this course is for you. If you are currently working with students as a healer or coach and are looking for certification, this course is an introductory course to the International Kundalini Yoga Therapy School. SPANISH TRANSLATION AVAILABLE FOR THIS COURSE

Power of the Navel: Adjustment, Alignment & Activation with Pavanjeet

Self Paced Learning with pre recorded content and Zoom calls: The path forward can often become unclear and it’s easy to feel lost. By centering and activating the navel point, recognize your inner strength and build clarity to walk your path confidently. In this three week series through yoga sets, meditation and self-massage you’ll learn how to adjust and activate the navel center to harness your own personal power and self-determination.

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.”

As Just Outcomes shared in the summit – we are working towards a shared story – not an identical story, but one big enough to allow all of our differences to co-exist with one another.  And “the quality of relationships among us does, and will, matter.”  There will be continuing discussions over the coming months and years.  It was apparent that trainers are ready to show up and have these conversations in the uplifting manner that is in alignment with our values.

Discussions on fundamental and sometimes challenging topics happened during the four sessions. 

The Steering committee is completing a full follow-up report to be sent out by July 26th and it will be posted on Sutra along with notes from the break-out groups.  Recordings of the workshops that were offered in English and Spanish will be available in the eLearning Center by August 8th.
