Campaign Update: Your Support is Urgently Needed

We have trained over 200 teachers since launching Trauma Responsive initiatives in Ukraine in 2023 and currently have 37 new teachers in training. Even more teachers are urgently asking us to continue to offer our support as conditions worsen.

Two of our teachers who represent the Guru Ram Das Center in Ukraine are pressing us to continue while they still have connectivity as they already experience regular outages of electricity and internet and are greatly concerned that this will get worse in the months ahead.

Just recently, we received a message from them about the intensified missile attacks fired into Kyiv; while most were deflected by anti-missile weapons, several landed and one blew up a children’s hospital. Themselves living in communities experiencing the direct impact of war, these teachers went to help clear rubble and find people who were missing.

They are witnessing firsthand the value of these protocols and are determined to continue training under the most perilous circumstances.

Your support today will allow us to bring more Kundalini Yoga Therapy aid where it’s needed most.

“From the very beginning of the war I knew that I would be among the people who would be rehabilitating veterans and the victims of war one day. . . Thank you for giving me the skills to serve in this way.”

Blast-related traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in both civilians and soldiers are a daily occurrence. According to a study from the JAMA network, up to 28 per cent of armed forces experience TBI.

Ukrainian Kundalini Yoga teachers now provide a specialized short term therapeutic protocol for Military Rehabilitation in a military hospital in Kyiv. This protocol has been taught daily since June 2023.

How you’re making a difference…

Of the participants who consistently showed up and did the home practice, their PTSD went from very high to having NO PTSD after 8 weeks. I am very happy to have seen such amazing changes and look forward to see how they do at follow-up. It was also so rewarding to see the personal growth and the changes they were making in their lives. I am so happy to be doing this work. Thank you for getting me—and my students — to this place! 

I have just started teaching a small class of people with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. They have already felt the benefits. Two ladies are in their sixties with incredible life stories, one with a disintegrating spine in constant pain, the other is transforming so fast it is like watching a flower unfolding. 

It is the last week of my first the trauma recovery course I taught using the curriculum you trained us in.  I want to share with you a little feedback. A friend’s husband has been doing the course as well as having therapy for the past 9 weeks.  She told me today that it is like she has the man back she married 18 years ago. She said that since he has been doing his weekly class, he has been able to find himself and who he is and from that he has been able to shine, something she hasn’t seen in a long time. Thanks you for sharing this technology with us all.
