“Life is a continuous vibration of up and down. And in this up and down, try to be neutral; be seated in your own spiritual integrity. ” – Yogi Bhajan

Living a purposeful and happy life requires strengths of character to promote positive habits. This indicates the caliber of how we live, eat, sleep, relate, and walk awake and present to our true nature. We are assisted in choosing and maintaining a positive lifestyle by a deep understanding of our Consciousness, Intelligence, and Life Cycles – natural transitions through physical, mental, social, and spiritual peaks and valleys of growth and performance.

This course provides a tool chest of yogic information, kriyas, and meditations that will allow you, and those you teach or affect, to heal the past, renew your self–concept, and cross the transitions of life beyond with grace–serving as a beacon of navigation to a world in transition.

Discover the cycles of every human life:
  • Know your Self–Concept: Healing the Formative Years
  • Adolescence and the Cultivation of Promoting Habits
  • Prime Adulthood: Productivity, Prosperity, and Sharing
  • Maturity and Midlife: Transmitting Values and Legacy
  • Elder Years: Character, Integrity and Merger
Learn how to connect to your life's purpose and meaning as you go through your life:
  • How do we move from Fate to Destiny?
  • Map out the stages and cycles of your life
  • Identify habits, cycles and practices that help or hinder your life in the present, past and future.
  • Dharmic vs Karmic living
  • Preparing for Death and understanding the shifts in Pranic Life Force
The program is based on the comprehensive science of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. The Aquarian Teacher program is a journey of your development as a Kundalini Yoga Teacher.

There are three levels of certification:
  • KRI–Level One: Foundations and Awakening – Instructor

  • KRI–Level Two: Transformation – Practitioner

  • KRI–Level Three: Realization – Teacher

The KRI Level Two is Transformational, and it is comprised of five modules required for KRI International Level Two Certification. The five modules are: Conscious Communication; Mind & Meditation; Authentic Relationships; LifeCycles & LifeStyles; and Vitality and Stress. Each Module includes fifty hours of classroom time and twelve hours of home study after the course. KRI requires that participants attend all classes, pass the exam and complete home study assignment which take place over a 90–day period after the course.

A Year of Transformation

with Dev Avtar/Helen Huber
Saturday, August 23
1:30–3:00 pm
$20 by 8/20
$25 thereafter

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


External living is competitive, comparative, and material based fraught with insecurity. Internal living is feeling peace, happiness, security, comfort, joy and love without any reliance on what or who is outside of us. Let's learn this skill together.

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.

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

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!
