In this 3-hour Woman’s Workshop Kundalini Yoga and meditation we be used to explore the composition “SO PURKH – THAT PRIMAL GOD” – written by Guru Ram Das, whose vibration exists holding a state of grace and love that heals all realms of the heart and being.

“By exploring our Grace as Women, we will discover how to use this quality to find a sacred merger with the Men in our lives and heal our relationships and ourselves.”

This workshop is followed by The Invincible Man’s workshop, flowing seamlessly into the Sacred Merger, where we will come together to express ourselves through form and sound. A celebration of Shiva and Shaktiness in all its purity.

Price: £25

14h – 17h
Invincible Man Workshop

with Benjahmin

“You can be what you WANT to be, but you can’t be what you WISH to be. The time has come. We want to be, we should be and we have to be – MEN.” – Yogi Bhajan

Do you Truly understand yourself as a Man? Do you understand the Power of your own Self-Recuperation? It is far greater than we know or feel it to be. The time has come for Man to Command his Own Self and Environments. A Man can become Invincible and Evergreen if he truly wants to.

“Come and Experience the Disciplines and Perspectives that serve you as an Individual so you can deliver your Excellence as a Man. Forge from Raw Steel a Tempered Sword of Clarity about how to be a Man and what it takes to walk on the Path of a Spiritual Man within the 21st Century.”
Price: £25

18h – 19h
Secret Merger through Sound
with Benjahmin & Siri Arti

“When men are men and women are women, our roles will unfold naturally, peacefully and gracefully.” – Guru Rattana

“After a morning of Women exploring their Grace through Kundalini Yoga and an afternoon of Men discovering their True Invincible Nature, we will move into an evening of Celebration. A Celebration of Divine Union between Woman and Man. Join us in creating a blissful space to Unite the Shiva and Shakti within each of us. This will be expressed through Sacred Sound Vibrations and a Supreme Willingness to Merge. We will guide you through a series of Venus Kriyás and Meditations to raise our awareness and learn the Art of Surrendering into an Authentic Relationship with Yourself and Sacred Polarity.”

Price: £15

20h – 21h30
Evenings of Devotional Singing

with Benjahmin & Jai Kartar Kaur

Mantras and the Vibrations of Sound form the Base Note to our Existence and to Chant or Sing them brings a Frequency of Joy and Oneness to All. To Merge with the Sound Current is to Merge with all that is and to our Potential as Human Beings.

Benjahmin and Jai Kartar will lead a Monthly Kundalini Mantra Celebration on a Sacred Sunday. With New Expressions/Compositions of Divine Mantras and some more familiar ones by well know artists, each person can join in with their own Personal Expression and Vibration of the Shabd Guru and together Experience that Sense of Joy and Oneness within the Merging.
Their Aim is to Create a Space for the Evolution of the Aquarian Spirit and to Manifest it Now through the Gift of Community.

  1. I am an American Sikh who studied with Yogi Bhajan for 30 years. I want to introduce you to a free e-book “Sikhism and Tantric Yoga”; a rare and out of print book by a Sikh scholar and historian which takes a critical look at Yogi Bhajan’s kundalini and tatric yoga systems. I discovered this book during my two years in India.“Sikhism and Tantric Yoga” has been a real eye-opener for me and makes complete sense when I think about the last thirty years of my life with Yogi Bhajan. Written by the esteemed Dr. Trilochan Singh, author of over twenty books on Sikh history and philosophy and lecturer at sixteen Universities, “Sikhism and Tantric Yoga”, describes the Sikh mystical path and is critical of Yogi Bhajan’s Tantra and Kundalini Yoga.

    I have included here a sample of one chapter and the entire book can be downloaded for free at:

    What I learned in India about the Sikh Mystic Path

    By Guru’s grace, while being detained by authorities in India, I lived for almost one year at the Golden Temple. After visiting Guru Sahib at the Harmandir Sahib everyday, singing the divine Gurbani Kirtan and contemplating God’s Name, the Guru showed me, how all the Yogic asanas I performed over the last 30 years were a complete waste of time and cannot match to 1 percent of the devotional contemplation on the Name of God.

    “In contrast to Patanjali’s Yoga, and other schools of Hindu Yoga (Hatha, Tantric, Laya, Kundalini, etc.), the Sikh Gurus call Sikh mystic path, Brahm Yoga (the Yoga which does not use any yogic technique but concentrates on God and achieves Him through devotion and contemplation). It is also called Gurmukh Yoga (Yoga of the Enlightened), Sahajya Yoga (Natural Yoga based on spontaneous devotion and contemplation). The word Yoga is used just to mean union with God.” Dr. Trilochan Singh.


    Eight Steps of Sikh Mystical Path

    …….Thus Guru Nanak clearly rejects the eight steps of spiritual progress as enunciated by Patanjali and replaces them with ethical and spiritual discipline of his own. The Sikh scriptures also clearly reject asanas (physical postures), pranayama (breath control), nauU-dhautz (cleaning the intestine with a piece of cloth inserted in the mouth and taken out through the anus). Those followers of Yogi Bhajan who frequently quote him as saying that the Scriptures of the Sikhs sanction all these Yoga practices, voice only his glaring ignorance of Sikh scriptures. I have not known any saint or seer in contemporary or past Sikh history who ever practiced these Yoga asanas. But all saints and all scholars have firmly called these and more so Tantric practices as directly opposed to Sikh doctrines. The following quotations, from Adi Granth make it clear that there is no place for Yoga practices in Sikhism:
    If a man learns all yogic asanas of perfect adepts, If he controls and subdues his senses through such feats;
    Even then impurity and dirt of his mind cannot be removed.
    The filth of egoism will not depart from the heart. The human mind cannot be cleaned and made pure, By any yogic discipline and restraint. It can be made pure and controlled only by seeking, Through love the sanctuary of the true Enlightener.
    Adi Granth, Guru Amar Das, Vadhans p 558
    For me the only asana (posture) worthwhile is to fix steadfastly the mind on the Vision of God and let the heart and soul be absorbed in such a spiritual condition of transcendent revelation as to continuously reflect on His Presence and listen to the enchanting melody of Unstruck Music (Anhad Shabad)

    (a) Savikalp Samadhi (ecstasy within the realm of consciousness): to be absorbed in the meaning and philosophical and mystical contents of the Divine Word is Savikalp a samadhi. (b) Nirvikalpa Samadhi (ecstasy of the Transcendent vision of God): to be absorbed in the Spirit and Essence of the Divine Word is Nirvikalpa samadhi.

    If one does the nauli dhauti karma (of cleaning the intestine with a piece of cloth), and becomes adept in eighty-four asanas, and yogic exercises, he cannot attain any peace of mind by these yogic techniques. Let him do such Japa or Tapa through such techniques for years and years and wander about in search of perfection, he will not attain genuine inner peace even for a moment.
    A. G. Guru Arjan, Majh, p 98
