“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:
Learn how to connect to your life's purpose and meaning as you go through your life:
- Know your Self–Concept: Healing the Formative Years
