As a board member of the Guru Ram Das Center for Medicine & Humanology, I represent and promote research on Kundalini Yoga as a therapeutic intervention.
I am also a Harvard Medical School yoga research scientist and serve the Kundalini Research Institute, the International Association of Yoga Therapists, and the Yoga Alliance, as director of research.
I am keenly aware of the strong and credible science and research evidence showing that yoga and yoga therapy are highly effective at improving physical and mental health, self-regulation of stress and emotion, mind-body awareness and mindfulness, and even spirituality, life meaning and purpose.
Through their effects on the underlying root causes of disease, yoga practices can reliably reduce symptom severity and, in some disorders, can actually reverse the disease process and restore complete health.
The techniques and practices of Kundalini Yoga Therapy as taught through the Guru Ram Das Center‘s International Kundalini Yoga Therapy Professional Training fully prepare teachers to serve in medical settings.
Further, research on Guru Ram Das Center-related Kundalini Yoga Therapy interventions has already yielded valuable clinical research trial publications on anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder in peer-reviewed biomedical journals, including a landmark study published in the prestigious leading medical journal JAMA Psychiatry.
And since June, the faculty of the accredited KY Therapy training has undertaken the huge task of training Kundalini Yoga teachers in trauma responsive skills and essential protocols to serve those in war zones and other conflict areas.
The continued deepening of this work is more urgent then ever and your generosity has impact in ways it never has before. Thank you for supporting this unprecedented effort.
Your gift makes this important work possible.
The need for the Guru Ram Das Center to continue this work is invaluable, and my service to the board of this center is strongly in support of its work and mission. Please make your tax deductible donation today. Thank you.
