“There are three things in this world:
Harijiwan has been teaching Kundalini Yoga since 1975. He possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of yoga, meditation and the sacred science of mantra. For many years he directly served his teacher, Yogi Bhajan, while traveling the world extensively with him. Today, and throughout his years as a teacher, Harijiwan remains committed to expanding his knowledge and experience to provide students with the most progressive, effective and self-empowering applications of this technology. His classes are funny, profound and poetic and offer students the opportunity to receive rarified instruction and enjoy vast change.
Tej Kaur has been a student of Yogi Bhajan for over 30 years. She is the Custodian of the Archives of the Teachings of Yogi Bhajan, and a recognized authority on the teachings. She has been involved in numerous Yogi Bhajan publications as transcriber, editor, and compiler including the Woman's Camp Series, "72 Stories of God, Good and Goods," and "The Master's Touch." She holds a Masters Degree in Counseling and for many years worked on Yogi Bhajan's correspondence during which she received extensive training from him on yogic counseling. Her classes are occasions to enjoy deep meditative experiences and gain unlimited amounts of yogic knowledge.
Gurujas is a teacher and the lead singer of White Sun. She teaches that Kundalini Yoga is an experientially-based system--a science of joy, fulfillment and love. She also believes that happiness is a vibrational frequency, and can be an enduring state of being. Her songs come from the teachings of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan--each one an avenue to experience the infinite energy contained therein. It is in this pure energy field of naad yoga that we conquer our imagined disabilities and experience the flow of universal consciousness.
Gurujas has been a part of two dozen teacher training courses, and teaches Kundalini Yoga in the U.S. and abroad. She studies under her teacher Harijiwan, who received the science of Kundalini Yoga from the Mahan Tantric Yogi Bhajan. She travels the world with him, chanting, teaching, and practicing.
Why take Teacher's training?
Most of the world’s religions and mythologies point toward the year 2012 as a major turning point in our planet’s history. We are in a time called “between the worlds,” the countdown years to a New Age. Those famous seers of time, the Mayans, end their calendar in 2012. It is the time when our solar system and all its planets enter what is called the Photon Belt. Photons are sources of light, similar to thought, they occupy no volume, have no mass. Photons are being emitted from the center of our galaxy. As a solar system we are entering a light realm, a higher frequency purification and cleansing zone. And as our planet moves through this photonic energy band this highly ionized, light photonic energy has severe consequences for any individual who is toxic with negativity and darkness. The planet enters this space around every 13000 or so years. Our sun’s energy is affected, as are the electrons that comprise everything around us. This change in galactic light affects our DNA, which will receive and transmit differently. It is no exaggeration to say that all we have known is to be different. We are literally moving into a different time/space continuum. And this change requires different ways of living. Different ways of being. Different ways of relating.
Yogi Bhajan has told us that “The Age of Aquarius is on our head whether we feel, know, understand or not. Past is going to be obsolete, and teachers of the Age of Aquarius are going to help humanity.”
For eight weekends, you will learn how to function within this changing global energy field. You will learn basic care and operation of the human apparatus. How to pay attention to and maintain your glands and nervous system so they function at an optimal level. How to check daily for the inner balance of elimination, absorption, rest and activity. Have an experiential understanding of the interrelationships of mind, body, emotions and spirit. This training will give you an awareness of the sensitivity everyone is going to need to enter into this New Age.
We live in a polluted environment, in a society that emphasizes drugs, short-term crisis thinking, and which ignores the inner dimensions of a person. This orientation has created a world of great suffering. The subconscious plays a major role we are not aware of in how we experience life. We are looking to the past for answers for today and tomorrow, not realizing that the past exists only as an experience we have in our subconscious minds. We become attached to these imprints and this prevents us from moving forward in life. In Kundalini yoga we have the technical know-how to deal with the subconscious mind on both an individual and societal basis. We learn how to clear it, how to stop the repetition of past errors and the re-living of past pains. These are essential teachings for this time.
The first student you will have as a teacher is yourself. And as the light of one candle can light thousands of candles, you must first illuminate your own consciousness. Awaken your own awareness. Then you can help. You can serve. You can contribute. You can do your part to help humanity enter this New Age and make the dream of world peace a reality.
Teacher Training is about technology—the technology of personal change: How to achieve strength, clarity and grace. It is systematic, comprehensive, and complete.
Our sincere prayer is that we can give to you what was given to us—teachings that have made our lives bright and prosperous, filled with wonder and adventure. Our only request is that you too share these teachings and help each other as we travel on this galactic journey together.
Radiant beings are awake. Radiant beings create their own light and link their individual light with the timeless light of wisdom that flows through the Golden Chain. We invite you to join this Golden Chain of Teachers.

JOIN THE GOLDEN CHAIN
In Jap-Ji, the celestial song of the Earth and Heavens, Guru Nanak says, "Paatalla Pataal lakh Aagaasa Aagass." Limitless the worlds below, limitless the worlds above.
The Ancient ones tell of those places where beings are trapped in worlds where the Sun sets. The darkness comes and enters the minds of the people. Pain and confusion occur. People get lost, and can't find their way.
But, the Ancient ones also tell us of beings of light, pure and bright, who have found a way to escape the suffering of the darkness. These beings have linked themselves to each other and to a luminous place that exists far, far beyond time. This is the Golden Chain. Through the blessings of this ancient lineage, you can find your way to the clear light of awareness. From this expanded consciousness you begin to experience the totality of your potential and the endless possibilities of fulfillment.
Yogi Bhajan, the Mahan Tantric Kundalini Yoga Master, taught in the West for 35 years. His teachings have been codified and synthesized into a comprehensive Level One Teacher Training course. The ancient science of Kundalini yoga is designed to awaken human consciousness to the awareness of how to maintain consistent health and constant happiness.
In Kundalini yoga every movement is scientifically originated, organized, and projected. This is a discipline where there is nothing but success. But it requires practice. It requires technical know-how. The five elements--ether, air, fire, water, & earth-- and the aura, which should be nine feet on either side, need to come to a controlled balance. With the strength of your practice you develop self knowledge, and with devotion infuse this knowledge into your being with the mantra SAT NAM.
These techniques of awareness begin to swing the personality away from fear complexes, the interlock of emotions and commotions, toward a freer, more expansive self-reflection. The physical body is prepared and the mind is taught to vibrate the sounds that re-activate and reconnect the cosmic link between individual consciousness and Universal consciousness. Kundalini yoga is self-realization through experience. This is a practical approach with a clear demonstration and continuous manifestation of the total supremacy of higher consciousness.
Elevating others feeds the Soul. To put the formless into form we use the link of love, compassion, and devotion. We establish an identity that is never lost as we move from existence to existence. We develop the character to make the invisible visible and the grace to create the radiant light that removes the obstacles of misfortune.
You are on the planet Earth. Have you come to enter the darkness or to guide others to the light? This is a destiny choice.
Join us on a splendid journey of exploration. Enter the captivating dance of the interwoven magical mantra sounds, activate the inner nectar rivers of the sublime Kundalini, and gain the essence of human freedom where the Long Time Sun is always shining and the Pure Love is always guiding…and the certainty of the protecting Golden Chain brings you the inexpressible serenity of Eternal Peace.
