The Power of Self Love

The Power of Self Love with Ram Rung Kaur

Love Yourself and Transform Your Life.

Many of us spend much of our lives with a deep longing to belong - to find our right place in the world. We often seek this out externally looking for the right career, the right mate, the right friends, the right location to live. However, even when all of these factors are in place, sometimes there is an internal restlessness that still persists.

I know this feeling well because it’s something that I have grabbled with most of my life. However, the tools of Kundalini Yoga have allowed me to address this longing from the perspective of the soul - to get to know my true nature and to connect more fully with self love. I have found that self love brings me to the home within myself in a way that nothing else can.

Many of us are taught the illusion of conditional love. We think that we need to be something for someone in order to receive love, or we think we need to gain something from someone in order to give it. However, true love is unconditional. It is our nature - it is without beginning and without end. When we learn to love ourselves, we begin to merge with the greater love that encompasses all life. From this place, anything is possible.

Join Ram Rung Kaur in this workshop where you will learn to embrace the great power of self love through the tools of Kundalini Yoga & Meditation.

Ram Rung Kaur is a visiting Kundalini Yoga teacher from New Mexico. She was a teacher, staff and beloved community member at Yoga West from 2008-2012. She is visiting in Vancouver for the first time in over two years to celebrate the community that has enriched and transformed her life on a profound level. She has 550 hours of Yoga Alliance Certified training in Kundalini (350 hrs KRI) & Hatha Yoga (200 hr RYT). Ram Rung Kaur is also trained as a filmmaker and is the founder of www.SacredHandProductions.com. Additionally she offers her gifts as an intuitive through Soul Readings www.WhenMaryArose.com.

The 21 stages of Meditation

June/July/Sept, 2014 (9am-6pm)

with Guru Raj Kaur                 ··

We are delighted to offering this fabulous course: 21 Stages of Meditation again in Vancouver.

We offered it last year and it was extremely well-received. This course fosters a deeply personal experience of your infinite nature. Meditate deeply and give yourself to the transformational process that will free you to be You –stronger, clearer and more radiant.

The Journey

The Course is divided into three two-day Journeys. We will engage in three separate journeys: each journey is comprised of seven stages, taking you step by step into a deeper level of awakening and realization. We will move through the rudimentary skills of meditation to the deeper levels of awareness and integration and finally into identity, projection and merger in the Infinite Pulse of Creation.

Though naturally we recommend that the best way to experience this journey is to participate in all three weekends, you can experience them separately.

The Teacher

This course is taught by Guru Raj Kaur Khalsa, Senior Teacher and Trainer at Yoga West. Guru Raj Kaur brought Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan to Vancouver over 40 years ago. Devoted to the purity and authenticity of this body of Teachings, she has been foundational to the development of the KRI Aquarian Teacher Training Academy. An original student of Yogi Bhajan’s, and this years’ KRI Honouree, she shares the Teachings with a warmth, humour, integrity, and radiance that elevates the spirit.

Pre-requisite

Though all are welcome into this course, it is highly recommended that you have experienced some Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan by attending several classes beforehand. Five are recommended as minimum.

21 Stages of Meditation Book

21 Stages: Third Journey

Sat-Sun, September 6 & 7      9am-6pm

with Guru Raj Kaur Khalsa                 ··

THE THIRD JOURNEY: The Transcendent Self

My idea to teach you my dear ones is that you may not have to go to Tibet to find a Lama to learn it. My entire intention is that some fortunate ones who are seeking God-consciousness and realization as a human being should be provided this technical know-how. It is not difficult to reach that consciousness and be creative while living in this seen world while relating to the Unseen. There is nothing very special which you have to relate to. The techniques you need are all very simple processes and are in this body and mind. All we have to do is condition this lock and unlock the system for your energy and consciousness. – YOGI BHAJAN

PRESENCE LIKE A BEACON • RADIANCE EVERYWHERE • PRAYERFUL STILLNESS • PREACHER • TEACHER • SAGE • INFINITE PULSE In this Third Journey, we explore the realms of the Transcendent Self, bringing a fulfillment and clarity that is deep and true, beyond the Finite Seft and the burdens of the ego. We tap into our natural state of wisdom, infinite innocence at play, and a presence that observes yet participates in all things with spontaneity and grace. Motto of this Journey: less ego, more bliss. Find out what it really means to have merger with the Infinite Self, and the peace and power that brings.

The Teacher

This course is taught by GURU RAJ KAUR KHALSA, Senior Teacher and Trainer at Yoga West. Guru Raj Kaur brought Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan to Vancouver 40 years ago.

White Tantric Yoga

November 22, 2014    Saturday   8:00am - 6:00pm

               

Yoga West                ··

White Tantric Yoga® is a one day meditation workshop, facilitated in 37 cities around the world. As an integral part of the Kundalini Yoga experience, thousands of people have continued to benefit from this mystical tradition for 40 years since Yogi Bhajan first taught it openly in 1971.

Our minds release 1000 thoughts per wink of an eye. Some of these thoughts get lost in the unconscious, and some get stuck in the subconscious and affect the conscious mind. White Tantric Yoga enables you to break through these subconscious blocks, so you can have a more enjoyable life. In the shortest time, you can experience release from a lot of the burden you carry in your mind.

White Tantric Yoga is done in pairs as a group meditation. You sit facing a partner and follow instructions for meditation given on video by the Mahan Tantric, Yogi Bhajan.

A representative of the Mahan Tantric will be present to facilitate White Tantric Yoga. The original facilitators were chosen personally by Yogi Bhajan from members of his staff. Since his passing the Board Members of Humanology and Health Science, which manages White Tantric Yoga, have used the profile he created for choosing new facilitators. Currently all White Tantric Yoga facilitators have studied personally with Yogi Bhajan. The facilitator's role is one of ensuring the methodology given by Yogi Bhajan is carried out, and helping participants maximize their experience.

Each workshop consists of between six and eight kriyas that incorporate mostly: a sitting position (sukhasan), a hand position (mudra), a breathing technique (pranayama), a mental focus, and/or a mantra. These kriyas vary in length from thirty-one to sixty-two minutes. There are breaks between each kriya and a vegetarian lunch is provided.

There are no prerequisites for participating in White Tantric Yoga. Beginners will tune into their internal energies and enjoy a deep and sometimes challenging meditative experience. More advanced meditation practitioners will deepen their experience and make new inroads to their spiritual awareness.
