“The greatest meditation is coming to the Guru. There is no meditation which can beat it. There’s no technology which can make up for it. There’s no grace which can be earned other than this.” Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan
The Shabad Guru Course supports the building of a fundamental connection to the Shabad Guru as a spiritual pathway and deepens your experience and understanding of how to apply the Shabad Guru in any situation. There are two parts to the course:
In Part 1, we focus on creating a self-initiation of connection with the Guru, and learn the meaning and application of three methods to utilize the Shabad Guru in your life: Jaap (Chanting/Recitation), Bhajan (Singing) and Sunniai (Listening). This ends with an experience of the Gurmukh ~ one who is attuned to the Guru. It leaves a lasting and deep experience of connecting with the Divine with yourself that supports all other spiritual practice. Part 1 is available through an online course. Please click here to learn more.
In Part 2, we focus on creating the vibration of the Shabad Guru at a higher frequency within our own being, as a temple of the Divine. This focuses on experiencing the depth of Ardaas (Prayer), Dhyaan (Meditation), Pratyahaar (Synchronization with God), Simran (Vibrational Remembrance) and Veechaar (Contemplation). This leads to a lasting Spiritual Endurance or Trust in the Divine, Bhrosa, which deepens your spiritual experience through a Radiance of Spiritual Sovereignty. Part 2 is being offered live in Espanola this summer:
Shabad Guru Course Part 2
3 Days: June 12 – 14, 2017
Continuing the journey of understanding and deepening our practice of the Shabad Guru, with build our Radiant Spiritual Sovereignty through the steps of:
Dhyaan (Meditation) to cross our thoughts through the words of the Shabad Guru & clear our subconscious (a magnet covered in rubber doesn’t attract anything; we must be clear and focused to achieve results). To go further we explore the concept of Pratyahaar (Synchronization with God) to create a pathway to elevate our soul and pratice deeper meditation.
Simran (Vibrational Remembrance) Simran is a state of consciousness that comes after building Japa, Prayer and practicing Raaj Yoga. It is a constant remembrance of the divine within all.
Veechaar (Contemplation) We are here as spiritual beings having a human experience. On this journey our soul has a lesson plan that is always working to expand our consciousness. As we become aware of these lessons we can connect further to understand the shifts happening in our lives and see what the soul is contemplating through our human experience.
We begin the course through an opening of Ardaas (Prayer), where each student will connect with their heart’s longing, i.e. what is bringing them to the feet of the Guru. From there, we will connect with this prayer throughout the entire course, as we deepen our practice through applying these tools and methods for our spiritual development.
At the end of the course, we will see how a deep and abiding Bhrosa (Trust) with our Infinity allows us to experience the Guru inside. Through this process each student will take their learning from the course & connect with the soul’s true purpose and service, allowing the Guru to come through in our life.
This course is the second part of a two part series on the Fundamentals of connection with the Shabad Guru. It is highly recommended that you take Part 1 first before Part 2, if you are not familiar with the concepts of Jaap, Bhajan, Sunniai & Gurmukh.
This is a very practical course with real life studies, so each student will bring forth a situation from their own lives that needs to be addressed, or an issue they are studying. During the course of the class, these concepts will be applied, giving a practical experience of the Shabad Guru in daily life by inviting the Guru in and applying the Shabad Guru to any situation.
You are welcome to attend one or both parts of this course. It is highly recommended to attend Part 1 before Part 2 if you are unfamiliar with the initial concepts as the course builds on the concepts with each part.
Pre-register by May 10th ~ $320
Registration after May 10th ~ $360
TESTIMONIALS ON PART 1:
“This course is very precious to me. [It] gave me a very subtle internal experience that broadened my perception of the power of the Shabad and how [I] experience it. There was a real change of consciousness. Now I can better understand why [the Shabad Guru] is considered the heart of the Sikh Dharma. Thank you dear GuruKirin for having kindly brought this knowledge to us and given us a sacred experience.” – Nam Rattan Kaur, Brazil
“I have to tell you, that everything I say here as a feedback is not going to be enough to tell you how much this Course was important to me. The Course really helped me deepen, establish and stabilize a stronger connection and relation with the Guru. To learn the different methods to relate with the Shabd Guru was the discovery of a new world to me. Now I know much better which kind of Shabd or Mantra are going to be more useful to me and to my students. Knowing the different effects of playing a Shabad or Mantra in Jaap or in Bhajan, for instance, made a lot of difference to me in my personal life, but also as a Kundalini Yoga teacher. Preparing Shabad’s or mantras for classes are more clear now. And GuruKirin, you are a beam of light that guides through out the whole process and makes [the] learning experience so easy. The online platform is so easy to relate to. And make’s it accessible for everyone everywhere to learn! I only have to thank you and the Guru for this wonderful experience. I really look forward for the new levels.” – Hari Bhagat Singh, Brazil
