Life is a series of experiences, good, bad and indifferent. By some good fortune when we are given an experience that nurtures and supports the very essence of our being, we have a gift of the steady "Truth". This is what I experienced 34 years ago at my first KUNDALINI YOGA class. Gradually I added more and more lifestyle practices (taught by Yogi Bhajan) into my daily routine. Over the years when weathering a life challenge became an issue or tricky blind turns presented themselves, I found the results of these life changes brought clarity and steadiness. Exploring "inner space" and "slow down" rather than "outer space" and the world of "speed up"; became the primary focus in my life.
While on a study trip to the GOLDEN TEMPLE in India in 1973, (with Mrs. Yogi Bhajan) I started learning the transformational music of "Shabd Kirtan" with "Kirtan masters" called "Ragi's". Prior to my first India trip, I had completed my Bachelor of Arts at Pennsylvania State University w/a BA in Psychology and a minor in Art and Music. The combined spiritual dimensions of a yogic lifestyle along with the elevated musical realm of the "Shabd", gave my life a depth of fulfillment that I could only dream about.
For 20 years I had the good fortune to live in LA and study directly with Yogi Bhajan. During those years, along with being a wife and mom, Yogi Bhajan appointed me (1980) to teach about the Shabd Guru to our community and children. Teaching the language, music and caring for the Guru were all a part of this work. Singing and teaching has been taking me to India, England, Canada, Mexico and South Africa. This has given me the opportunity to study with Indian Classical masters that has enabled me to produce 4 musical albums of Shabd Kirtan. I have also been representing 3HO* at the United Nations to disseminate our mission of peace and service since my move to New York 11 years ago.
Sharing the technology of this yogic way of life to uplift, enrich and bring harmony and peace to others is a gift that can only grow with sharing.
