Kundalini is the natural presence of awareness that resides within each of us. Kundalini Yoga and Meditation, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, is considered one of the most comprehensive of yogic traditions. For one weekend in September at Stonehouse Farm, you can immerse yourself into this sacred science through its dynamic postures, pranayama, mantra, music and meditation!

The purpose of Kundalini Yoga is transformation. It is a technology of changing and strengthening your radiance to give you an expanded life and greater capacity. It is a technology of self-experience. You learn to heal yourself and others with the power of the word, chanting, mantra, meditation and sound healing with gongs, bells and singing bowls.

In the midst of it all you may find yourself experiencing the Infinity of ecstasy dwelling in the Creator. It expresses the indescribable experience of going from darkness to light; from ignorance to true understanding. Kundalini balances the energies of the generating, organizing and transforming principles.

While at Kundalini Festival don’t be surprised if you hear a yogi exclaim, “Wahe Guru!” when something goes amazingly right! And, don’t be surprised if you hear a yogi exclaim, “Wahe Guru!” when something goes very, very wrong, too! ‘Wahe Guru’ is a mantra that empowers your ability to be neutral in the midst of all situations; positive or negative. That is the definition of a true yogi – one who is swayed neither by praise nor by slander; by the positive or negative in any situation.

Come experience the profound peace of practicing Kundalini Yoga kriyas, the deep psychological rest of chanting sacred mantras and the use of sound as a tool for attunement and healing.
