About the Course

Journey into the Heart of Sikh Dharma is a small group class, meeting together via telephone biweekly with an expert presenter and the course facilitator.

This course will allow you to delve more deeply into a relationship with your spiritual path, and will also enrich your practice and understanding of Kundalini Yoga – it is a perfect complement or follow up to Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training.

The course involves an investment of time leading up to each session. Short reading, experiential, and written assignments are given. In addition, between classes, you are invited to explore your relationship with the material with another participant in your section.

Your assignments are sent to the facilitator before each class. Highlights from each person’s reflections are shared during the class for learning and feedback.

Also, all students choose seva projects to do during the course as an offering to integrate the learning to the living experience.
