Sat Nam Sangat,
Recently, I was given the opportunity to converse and express my thoughts on the current stance of Kundalini yoga with teachers, students and practitioners of healing. Several talks with fellow members of the community have given rise to growth in both body and mind from many different perspectives. This message is specifically for those who wish to broaden their self image and heighten the recovery of trauma for yourself as well as to educate and heal others.
During a conversation with a private client, our main focus had been on how to overcome the effects of trauma via Kundalini Yoga. However during this call, a point was brought up that felt revolutionary, almost groundbreaking.
Together, we had come to the realization. Our minds and bodies have a subconscious ability to protect us when we experience a traumatic event. No matter how small it may seem at first, traumatic events have a way of resurfacing when we least expect it. Trauma can be very tricky to identify as it can take many different forms in our lives. As in real life, everything in our world requires tending to in order to grow properly over time. Breathing and learning these exercises will be part of your personal growth as you learn to ward off trauma and anxiety in others, as well as learning how to protect yourself in the process.
Have you been struck by a sudden fear of nervousness, apprehension or worry? How about sudden bursts of aggression, depression or even lacking expression? Trauma is arduous, and at times, burdensome to the person suffering from it. Oftentimes not even having the words to communicate what is wrong can feel as if you are being engulfed by some unseen force. The very first step to dealing with all of these things is a rather simple one; Learn How to Breathe Properly.
Due to my love of dance, muscle movement and breath work, I noticed how knowledge from my previous education as a dance instructor allowed for a smooth mental transition into Kundalini Yoga. Prior to learning about Kundalini Yoga however, aspects of my personal internalized trauma would appear in forms of restlessness, frustration and lashing on to those who were nearby.
As I deepened my practice of yoga, unique and profound techniques shared with me allowed for a more enlightening experience than ever before. I was experiencing the strength of personal mantras, the support of the community and the existential benefits of healing with sound vibrations.
If the ability to not only manage your trauma but to live with it, accept it and and learn from it were to present itself, would you take this opportunity to better yourself? Would you do it to help others if not for your own sake?
Having spent the last ten years of my life researching the repercussions of trauma both in and out the human psyche, it felt that the opportunity to share this information with others was beginning to bloom. From training programs to spiritual coaches and even performing with healing practitioners, the ‘true magic’ that alleviates and does the real healing lies within each of us in ways that cannot be defined in one or two sentences. Everyone in this world features a unique, personal way of healing that only they can tap into. Knowing these ways can build the differences between co-existing with trauma and letting it consume you, leading to an unhealthy view on relationships, reality and sometimes even in oneself.
Currently in the works is a three part meditation system, developed to help heal, awaken and balance our untapped emotions, abilities and potential through Kundalini yoga. After years through my own spiritual pilgrimage, I wish to share the knowledge and experiences I have cherished via a program currently in development.
If the idea to pursue a more holistic, natural and dependable way of healing through yoga and meditation resonates within you, please do not hesitate to reach out for more details.
In the upcoming days we will be accepting a limited number of those interested in developing the ability to heal traumas on an individual basis.
I can guarantee that through these steps, your next three months will be considerably more enlightening and soothing in comparison to the least three months you have truly endured.
Take care of yourself and your loved ones.
Peace to all. Love to all. Light to all.
Sat Nam, Tiaga Harprem Singh
