SS Dr. Sat Kaur Khalsa, USA

In 1991, the Siri Singh Sahib asked me if I would be willing to be Secretary of Religion for Sikh Dharma.

I see each Minister as a unique “patch” of a quilt with their God-given gifts sewn together by the Shabad Guru to be able to cover the needs of the sangat and the world.

Using the Indian sacred musical format of rhythm and Raga scales, Satkirin guides us to healing the human body and mind through the power of the sound current. As a Kundalini Yoga specialty teacher in the Aquarian Academy, she delivers a comprehensive understanding of how to accurately chant. Through inspiring stories and vocal kriyas, Satkirin guides her students through the system of Gurbani Kirtan, which is a powerful and beautiful way to remove limiting thoughts and beliefs through cultivating inner harmony and grace
