"This is to thank you for the Applied Psychology of Death and Dying course. I used what we learned about death and dying every day during a recent family crisis. The concrete practices you shared were incredibly helpful. Just having a toolbox made all the difference. The transformation of my own feelings/beliefs about dying was equally important, as it allowed me to be more present with (and deeply curious about) my ill family memberís experience and less preoccupied with my own reactions. Thank you."

Foundations: Principles and Practices of Kundalini Yoga Therapy

March 25 - March 29, 2015
Goettingen, Germany

Teaching Kundalini Yoga to people with health conditions

Level 1 Kundalini Yoga Teacher training prepares us to teach to people who are healthy. A separate set of skills is required to teach to people with health conditions. This training gives Kundalini Yoga teachers the foundation we need to begin to develop those skills and to deepen and expand the application of yogic philosophy, technique and habits of conscious living toward health recovery.

We will learn how to identify and meet the student at their starting point, mobilize inner resources, understand and work with the process of change. We will explore the unique structure of a therapeutic Kundalini Yoga class and the layering model of teaching Kundalini Yoga to people with health conditions. Yogi Bhajanís 15 principles of teaching Kundalini Yoga as a therapeutic intervention are detailed and the psychology of health recovery and the role of family and friends are addressed.

Experience the differences between a yoga teacher, yogic healer, and a yoga therapist and the specific language of each.

Special attention is given to the personal development to engender awareness, strength and subtlety of the sensory system, intuition, compassion, deep listening, sensitivity, humility, endurance, radiance and grace.

A six week Kundalini Yoga curriculum for a mixed conditions group class are included.

Foundations of Kundalini Yoga Therapy: Principles and Practices is the first module of the 1,000 hour International Kundalini Yoga Therapy Professional Training and is open to Kundalini Yoga teachers. Those Kundalini Yoga teachers who are in the integrative healing arts find this training especially useful.

Continuing Education units for licensed nurses, counselors, social workers available through the California State licensing boards and for yoga teachers through IKYTA and Yoga Alliance. Attendance for full duration is required to obtain certificate of completion.

Presenter: Shanti Shanti Kaur Khalsa, PhD

Origins and Identity of Kundalini Yoga as Therapy

June 29 - July 2, 2015
EspaŮola, New Mexico

The historic origins of Kundalini Yoga give us an understanding of the source of illness and the pathway of health recovery as self-discovery. In this 4 day training you will:

  1. Move from Chitta to Guna to Tattwas to 10 bodies, from thought frequency to karma, from Purusha and Prakirti, from Dukh to Sukh as we discover the meaning and impact of each of these states of being on our consciousness and on the body we have in this incarnation.
  2. Identify and resolve inner conflict through the transformative understanding of the Bhagavad Gita, Patanjaliís Sutras and the 5 Sutras of the Aquarian Age.
  3. Gain a deeper understanding of the meaning, purpose and practical application of these ancient principles to healing and health recovery.
  4. Explore your Identity as a Kundalini Yoga Teacher, Kundalini Yoga Therapist and Yogic Healer.
  5. Deepen your relationship to your Radiant, Subtle and Pranic bodies as manifestation of the Guruís presence through your unique being.
  6. Establish your stillness, frequency and presence.

Origins and Identity of Kundalini Yoga as Therapy is a deep, transformational, frequency adjusting gem. It is the third module of the 1,000 hour International Kundalini Yoga Therapy Professional Training and is open to Kundalini Yoga Therapists in training and Kundalini Yoga teachers. Those Kundalini Yoga teachers who are in the integrative healing arts find this course especially useful.
