Below is a list of themes that have been recently taught:

Strong as Steel, Steady as Stone ("Warrior Saint")

The purpose of this course is to give the student a crystal clear concept and experience of the warrior side of our path, represented by the vision, message and energy of Guru Gobind Singh, the great 10th master of the Sikh path. In short, this course is almost exclusively about the theme of living one’s life with great passion and limitless. I share with people the secret to conquering fear, overcoming whatever obstacle in life one is facing and attaining whatever we put our mind to. This is an extremely challenging course physically, mentally and emotionally, yet is appropriate for persons at all levels of experience, including absolute beginners. Many people have told me that their life was completely transformed by this one workshop. This is my signature course. I will be presenting Kundalini Yoga sets and meditations especially designed to build one's courage.

The Art of True Love (“Your Soul is Your Best Soulmate”)

For obvious reasons, this is probably the most popular theme for students. This course is for anyone looking for a life partner, trying to get the most out of an ongoing relationship, or recovering from the heartbreak of lost love….so this includes just about everybody! Both individuals and couples will get a lot out of this course. Simply put, I will share the secrets of finding an appropriate partner, avoiding being controlled by past disappointment, living with commitment, maintaining and growing a relationship, and perhaps most importantly, using the relationship as a vehicle for mutual spiritual growth. I will be presenting Kundalini Yoga sets and meditations that will especially target the heart center.

Meaning, Purpose and Mission

In this workshop, I will explore from a yogic and dharmic perspective, the most profound questions that every human being will have to eventually deal with: Who am I? What is the purpose of life? What was I personally born to do in this lifetime? Surprisingly, the answers to these questions are not overwhelmingly complicated and in a relatively short amount of time, any person can begin dedicating his or her time and energy towards attaining personal destiny. I will be presenting Kundalini Yoga sets and meditations that will bring awareness to the areas of purpose and mission.

Follow the Arrows

We spend so much time trying to figure out what to do next in life, where to live, who to marry, what career to pursue, what spiritual path to pursue; but unfortunately, as we all know, usually with questionable results. But there are arrows everywhere pointing us in the right direction, if we only had the eyes to see them and the courage to follow them. In this workshop, I will share the secret to recognizing and trusting in these arrows. After having spent most of your life chasing after things, you will finally be able to relax and let things come to you! I will be presenting Kundalini Yoga sets and meditations specifically designed to enhance intuition and sensitivity.

Breaking the Chains of Personal Enslavement

Assuming the goal of life is liberation, throughout history the great masters have taught us that there are five basic human enslavements that must be overcome in order to achieve absolute freedom, those being: anger, greed, pride, lust and attachment. These are not just philosophical concepts to be understood intellectually. Rather, these five enslavements present themselves as the very obstacles we face in everyday life. In this workshop, we will not only explore each of these aspects of human nature in great depth, but more importantly, shed light on how they can be overcome by facing the challenges of daily life. I will be presenting Kundalini Yoga kriyas and meditation that will assist in bringing victory over these human weaknesses.

Be The Lighthouse!

Borrowing from a saying from my spiritual teacher, Yogi Bhajan, I will share how to develop radiance and personal projection, so you can shine like the proverbial lighthouse; giving direction, assurance and inspiration to all who come into your presence. In short, this workshop will be about experiencing and projecting one’s own God-given greatness; and what it takes to be a role model and leader in the world, both today and in the years ahead. I will be presenting Kundalini Yoga sets and meditations to bring out the leadership qualities in each of us.

Cosmic Consciousness

This is a course in advanced meditation, although anybody, even a total beginner would benefit from it. Even though we will be doing a lot of meditation, I also give invaluable tips on how to maximize the meditative practice and experience. As it is my area of expertise, I specifically show students how to integrate the benefits of meditation into their day-to-day life and at the same time accelerate the progress of spiritual development. I often get feedback from attendees of this course that the meditations took them to places within themselves and through the universe they had never thought possible. Unlike other courses I teach, which can be very challenging physically, this course is more ethereal.

Maintaining Strength and Confidence in Times of Economic and Emotional Uncertainty

The world is currently going through a protracted period of financial crisis and rapid social change, putting many of us under tremendous pressure on every imaginable level. Uncertainty about the future has provoked universal feelings of self-doubt, fear, impotence and depression. Never have the incredible teachings and technology of Kundalini Yoga been more needed than they are today. In this workshop, I will explain how to apply this ancient body of wisdom to every aspect of your daily life so that you will not only survive, but actually prosper through this particular “Test of the Times”. I will be presenting Kundalini Yoga kriyas and meditations specifically designed to give constant strength and confidence, even as everything appears to be crumbling around us.

Two Doorways to Heaven

As human beings, we have a natural desire for joy, fulfillment and liberation. These heartfelt aspirations often seem so close and yet so elusive. In fact, everyday life offers constant opportunity for complete satisfaction, and even transcendence, through the understanding, practice and mastery of the virtues of “Connection” and “Service.” By exploring these “Two Doorways to Heaven,” I will show how to conquer the feelings of loneliness and alienation, and replace them with the feelings of connectedness, passion and purpose. I will be presenting Kundalini Yoga kriyas and meditations specifically designed to bring us to an experience of connectivity and inspire us to serve.

The Meaning of Life and Death

In some ways, I think this is the most compelling and profound course I offer. It covers themes that most teachers only dance around and students are hard-pressed to get straight talk about. We will fearlessly delve into the topics of creation, karma, reincarnation, infinite existence, the meaning of life and the experience of worldly death. With a deeper understanding of these timeless truths, the student will be better prepared to both live and die with consciousness and fearlessness, as well as the ability to guide and inspire others in this direction. I will be presenting Kundalini Yoga sets and meditations that will lead one to experiencing timelessness and deathlessness.

Spiritual Brilliance

In this workshop, I teach how to fully experience one's inner light, expand it and integrate it into daily life. In this course, the student will be guided to a very deep, profound and sublime experience of the soul. The workshop will also walk the student through the entire path of spiritual development, from first subtle yearning of the soul for a more satisfying life all the way through attainment of enlightenment. This will give a clear context and roadmap for anybody who has begun the journey towards self-realization. I will be presenting Kundalini Yoga sets and meditations that will bring awareness to and the ability to expand this infinite internal light.

Looking the Part of the Real Deal Yogi

Is it only “what’s on the inside” that counts? On this particular spiritual path, I would say definitely not. The ideal we are always seeking is authenticity, congruence and excellence in every aspect of life, inside and out. When there is incongruity between the way in which we experience ourselves internally and the way we present ourselves to the outside world, it is no surprise that we feel misunderstood by others and frustrated in our quest for success and fulfillment. There is a way that a spiritually oriented person can develop a unique, striking and inspiring “look” to help bring it all together, and I will show from personal experience and the Raj Yoga tradition how that is done.

Love, Devotion, Surrender

This course specifically focuses on the devotional aspect of yoga, which has always been an integral part of the practice. In particular, we will explore the areas of unconditional love, humility, forgiveness, compassion, prayer and relationship with God and Guru. I will be presenting Kundalini Yoga sets and meditations designed to open up and develop the heart chakra.

Return of the Jedi

Everyone who has practiced Kundalini Yoga or has heard the spoken word of Yogi Bhajan, can verify how healing, elevating and transforming these teachings can be. However, apart from improving the quality of life of today’s practitioner, these teachings are ultimately meant to guide humanity towards a brighter and more conscious future. And like in Star Wars, there will be a group of brave, wise and saintly leaders that will emerge out of this visionary movement; who will teach, model and fight for truth and justice in the coming age. In this workshop you will gain a glimpse of that future and the part you will play in bringing it into being.

Burning Bridges and Mending Fences

Yogi Bhajan taught that happiness, fulfillment and self-realization is every human’s birthright, and that such an exalted state can be attained fairly quickly and without unnecessary drama. In this workshop I will explore in depth why on this particular spiritual path we emphasize “projection” over “process." I will show how to proceed fearlessly forward in life without looking back, while at the same time being able to understand and make peace with a past that no longer needs to be in control. I will be presenting Kundalini Yoga sets and meditations that will assist in facing up to and overcoming this very common human challenge.

The Ghost of Susan Strasser

This workshop will revolve around the action-thriller novel, “The Ghost of Susan Strasser”, written by Soul Singh Khalsa of Phoenix, Arizona. The story told by this engrossing novel will touch in great depth the most important lessons we are faced with when we decide to walk on the spiritual path, as well as the joys, challenges and even dangers that come along with it. Although written in fiction form, you will no doubt recognize some of the characters in the novel, maybe even yourself! Participants will receive both a hard copy and audio CD set of the novel. The entire process of reading and listening to the book, along with attending and participating in the workshop, promises to be a thought-provoking, fun and transformational experience.
