with Wahe Guru Kaur
Begins May 30!

Tuesday, March 31
7:30—8:30 pm

Attend the 6:00 p.m. Healing Breath class as Wahe Guru's guest and stay for the meeting to have your questions answered!

All living beings and life forms are connected. We are linked to the Mother Earth and all her inhabitants. In Healer Training we will explore this connection through an experiential process of journeying through the Elements of Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit. At each point along the journey you will receive an initiation. We will work with interactive solo and group exercises, journaling and personal tests. In order to heal yourself and eventually become a healer you must develop a mastery of the elements and have the tools to work with them to evoke change in your internal and external environment.

Healer Training is a complete immersion into the healing arts. We will explore pranic healing techniques, mainly through use of the "Healing Breath." We will also delve into Celtic Shamanism, the five elements, guide work, channeling and sound healing. You will be trained in techniques to develop your intuition and access/or expand your psychic gifts. Learn how to set up an altar, choose your healing tools, work with "Animal Spirit Medicine" guides, communicate with your personal guides, understand and master the Chakra System, psychic protection and shielding and the protocol and ethics of being a healer.


  • At least one private Healing Breath session

If you do not meet these requirements but wish to be considered for the program, please make an appointment to see Wahe Guru.

Please see the Healer Training brochure and application for more details at the front desk.

Sunday, March 8
2:00–5:00 pm

Allow yourself to be YOU! Experience your Soul.

Kriyas and meditations enable you to enter a meditative state; and using sat nam rasayan allows you to attain shuniya and heal each other. Let a powerful Kundalini Yoga set and meditation open you to an unfettered view of self. Then move seamlessly into the practice of Sat Nam Rasayan.

You will work with a partner to:

  • Enhance awareness of your subtle body

  • Expand the capacity of you meditative mind

  • Open your compassionate awareness

  • Be conscious of everyone and everything in your presence

Prior to this age, Sat Nam Rasayan was transmitted in silence. It is only now that, through the mastery of Yogi Bhajan and Guru Dev Singh, it is being taught openly. Sat Nam Rasayan is a great tool to add to your Kundalini Yoga skills. As a Sat Nam Rasayan healer/practitioner, you will learn the nature of surrender to your true identity.

Spring is a seeding time where we can plant the seeds of our intentions in the fertile ground of creative possibilities. Set your intentions for finding and maintaining balance within all aspects of your life.

The Sacred Breathing Circle is a journey into the Self. It allows you to identify and release mental, emotional and physical blocks and bring light to areas that need healing. Experience Kundalini Yoga and an ancient pranic technique called the Healing Breath which promotes healing and regeneration on all levels. Please wear comfortable clothes that you can move in and bring a mat, blanket and cushion if you have one.

Wahe Guru Kaur is a Clairaudient Healer, KRI certified yoga teacher and the owner of the Awareness Center. She leads a yearly Healer Training Program - the next program begins in 2015. She also offers weekly private Shamanic Healing sessions using the healing breath technique.

Saturday, March 28
1:30–3:00 pm
$20 by 3/25
$25 thereafter

We recommend pre–registering for this very popular workshop! Space is limited.


There is an indian belief that everyone is a house of four rooms: A physical,  a mental, an emotional and a spiritual room.  This month we will quiet, balance and heal the room of emotion.  When unbalanced, our emotions can run our life.  Without healing we can live our life in fear, anxiety, and sadness.  It's time to heal.

Hypnosis can enhance your well–being by allowing your deeper self to emerge. Hypnosis can strengthen self–concept, self–esteem and aid in the healing of body, mind and spirit. While in a deeply relaxed state, your subconscious mind becomes alive and fertile. This allows absorption of positive affirmations so change can occur deep within.

Enjoy a safe and nurturing evening exploring different aspects of hypnosis.

  • Brief discussion on hypnosis
  • Experience a hypnotic journey into self
  • Time to process your experience

Dev Avtar/Helen is a KRI–certified Kundalini yoga teacher, Reiki Master, graduate of the Awareness Center Healer Trainee program and a certified hypnotist. She has been a psychotherapist for over 25 years as well as a psychology college instructor. Dev Avtar offers private Reiki, Healing Breath and Hypnosis sessions by appointment.


SADHANA: Daily Spiritual Practice
4:15–6:30 am

Sadhana is the daily practice of yoga and meditation that is practiced, ideally, during the early morning hours when our mind is clearest. Join the AC's dedicated sadhana group for a transformative experience of body, mind and spirit. Experience the techniques of Kundalini Yoga, meditation, breathing, chanting, music and relaxation to assist you in unlocking and releasing your inner creative energies. Feel the power of group energy and be part of the process.

Whether you decide to participate for one day or 40, you are always welcome. Enter through the back door.

The greatest reward of doing sadhana (personal spiritual discipline) is that the person becomes incapable of being defeated. Sadhana is a self–victory, and it is a victory over time and space.
—Yogi Bhajan

A private Shamanic Healing Session with Wahe Guru is a life–altering event, to say the least. During this process she will use her gifts as a clairaudient (communicating with your subconscious self), sound, chanting, mantra, channeling, sending healing energy through her hands, essential oils, crystals and whatever else is needed for you to remove blocked energy. Each session is unique and you will leave feeling peaceful, connected and often with a completely altered way of looking at your life.

The basic format: talking briefly and setting your intention, drawing divination cards, then doing the Healing Breath, a pranic healing technique. You will be guided through a clearing of the seven major energy centers of the chakras and go into a deep meditative trance.

She offers spiritual life coaching and follow–up "Home Play" that helps you put your healing experience into practice in your everyday life.

EXPRESS SESSIONS are for clients who have already had one or more private sessions. This session targets a specific emotional and energetic release. The client comes with intention clearly stated and immediately goes into the healing breath trance and the clearing begins! For specific relationship clearing, an energy blast, breaking a habit, stress relief, restful sleep, getting a new job or opening up opportunities in all areas of life.

Dev Avtar found her purpose in life as a healer. She brings over 25 years of experience as an educator and psychotherapist to her private healing sessions. Combining her skills as a Reiki Master and Sacred Healing Breath practitioner, Dev Avtar provides a safe and nurturing environment for you to heal and rejuvenate on physical, emotional and spiritual levels.

After tuning in and a brief talk regarding your purpose, you will be asked to lie down to begin the powerful, easy to learn, healing breath. This powerful breath clears and unblocks old patterns which can create emotional, physical and spiritual illness. Following the healing breath, the use of a safe and nurturing light hypnosis will deepen your experience. It is used for the restorative purpose of enhancing your mind through exploration and "sinking in" positive affirmations.

This will be done while you receive your intuitive hands–on Reiki treatment. Reiki restores and balances the energy centers in your body promoting healing and wellness on all levels. The use of crystals, essential oil, and healing sound is used for intensification. Your session ends by being given practical tools to guide you on your intended path.

SA TA NA MA: Infinity–Life–Death–Rebirth

"In the Aquarian Age, we must understand our own reincarnation." – Yogi Bhajan

Dev Avtar will gently guide you on a journey back in time where your soul expressed itself as other lives. There, you will have the opportunity to heal through deep spiritual knowing that death is an illusion, or find understanding into why you have the blocks or patterns that your soul carried into this lifetime, and what you can do about them.

Your session begins with a brief discussion about regression and your individual intention. After the past life regression you will have time to process, as well as an opportunity for further follow–up by email.

Important: A past life regression session is not for entertainment and should not be taken lightly. Approximately 3–5% of participants will not be able to have a PLR experience. There is no guarantee of results.
