Are you interested in learning about the history and philosophy of Kundalini Yoga? Yogi Bhajan gave us the technology to experience the awakening, moving, and cultivating the Kundalini energy of awareness – this class will explore the foundational roots of that technology as it developed in India.
In this 4-part lecture series, we will dip our toes into the river of history, sit back, and get a glimpse of the bigger picture. Where did this amazing technology come from? Who were the people who developed it? What is the relationship of Kundalini yoga to Sikh Dharma? Each class will focus on the history and philosophy of one or two main practices and will include a short 11-minute meditation related to the weekly themes.
Topics To Be Covered:
Jan. 27th: The Ancient Cosmic Principles – how time, karma, dharma, and the tattvas affect you.
Feb. 3rd: The Tantric Revolution – Buddhists, Hindus, and Goddesses going Left, Right, and Middle.
Feb 10th: Hatha Yoga, Subtle Anatomy, and the “Rainbow Body.”
Feb 17th: Sikh Dharma, Yogi Bhajan, and Kundalini Yoga in the west.
Your guide for this journey is Pavan Dev Kaur (Jeannette Darcy). The cost for the class series is $95. All proceeds from the class will go directly towards the Guru Ram Das Ashram Renovation Fund.
