Kundalini Yoga & Sikh Dharma

Guru Nanak was a very good yogi, trained by very good yogis. He had a very great friendship with yogis. If he would not have been a yogi, he would not have gone to the yogis. An idiot finds the company of idiots. Men of God find the company of men of God. That’s the law. Birds of a feather flock together. All his life, Guru Nanak flocked together with the yogis.
— Yogi Bhajan, 19 August 1979

Sunday, 22 January – 10-5PM • The Light Centre - Moorgate

What is the connection between Kundalini Yoga and Sikh Dharma, and between yoga and religion in general? What is the purpose of yoga, dharma, religion? Are there any differences? What is the difference between a teacher and a Guru? Many people who practice yoga have reservations towards dharma, religion and the notion of God. On the other hand, many people who practice religion (and especially Sikhs, but also Christians) disapprove of yoga.

In this workshop, we will discuss all these questions and phenomena, try to understand reasons for conflicts and misunderstandings, and explore ways of personal understanding of the timeless messages of the saints of mankind, the true way of life, but also the power and potential that lies within contradiction, the transcendence of positive and negative mind.

Open to everybody who is interested in the subject. Note: we will practice some yoga and meditation for those who want to join.
