Karam Kriya for KY
Karam Kriya is based on the understanding that you are a consciousness that defines itself as a spiritual being having a human experience, and you are here to self-initiate. Self-initiate implies personal volunteering into a process of engagement in practical contexts, maintaining a spirit of enquiry and applied consciousness to challenges that optimize your integrated learning experience. – Shiv Charan Singh
KARAM KRIYA AS A SUPPORT TO THE KUNDALINI YOGA TEACHER IN CENTRAL LONDON AND BIRMINGHAM
STARTS OCTOBER 2018
The applied spiritual science of Karam Kriya is based on the primary intelligence of numbers, the virtues of the 10 Sikh Gurus, the universal principles of the Mul Mantra and the 10 Spiritual Bodies. Inspired and informed by the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, it has been extensively developed and taught worldwide by Shiv Charan Singh. The Karam Kriya School currently includes a large international community of Kundalini Yoga teachers and teacher trainers, Karam Kriya consultants and dedicated students.
We welcome you to the new round of the Karam Kriya for Kundalini Yoga (KK4KY) training which will begin in October 2018. This course of 10 weekends and a 4-days residential workshop is open to all, at any stage of life or yoga practice, and you can join us for any or all of the modules. The course is particularly aimed at certified Kundalini Yoga teachers who would like to deepen and expand their understanding and practice of the content of the Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training program, through the multiple perspectives and interrelated experiences of the disciplines, arts and sciences of Karam Kriya and Kundalini Yoga.
The course will be facilitated by a team of UK and international KK and KY trainers. Each weekend will comprise presentations of topics, group activities, meditative conversation, and the guided practice of specific kriyas and meditations. The training will be held at the Helios Centre in Central London (King’s Cross) and, for the first time, in Birmingham (Harborne). The course will include an optional, 4 days residential workshop taught by Shiv Charan Singh at the Karam Kriya School’s headquarters, the Quinta do Rajo Ashram in Portugal.
