I am struggling with an addiction with alcohol. I did quit for many months but alas it crept way into my life. Most days I can take it or leave it but the problem is that I binge. I love yoga and meditation and I consider myself spiritual, I am trying hard to tap into the space which led me to...

Hello Hari, A KYTA email finds me in bed with a stinking cold and a low ebb!  The death of a close friend and the end of my relationship have hit me hard over the last few weeks. And my job (also as a children’s social worker!) is overwhelming and exhausting. Those around me are encouraging me to take some time...

So this year I was asked to pull together a team to represent Kundalini Yoga at the London OM Show, I knew I could rely on the princesses of the Northeast Sangat, and last weekend we journeyed down South, whites and turban prepared, ready to spread the light! We met so many inspiring and interesting people on our journey, Yogi's fruitarians,...

The Egg and the Orange ~ The Natural Wisdom of the Body I can pinpoint the exact moment when the seed of my interest in nutrition was planted. When I was in my early teens I noticed that when I ate a boiled egg, I always felt like eating an orange afterwards. Other than noting this, I didn’t think too much of...

Oh, innocence. How blissful it feels to have found you. You were there all along, underneath the shelves of confusion, boxes of painful memories and blanket of shadows, there you were.

The quality of the food we put into our bodies is extremely important, but let’s not underestimate the other factors that contribute to good digestion. The aim is to maximise the nutrients and energy we get from food while putting...

"Spirit is truth and true justice, say it with infinite love. People beg and pray, give to us, give to us, and the giver of all keep giving." Japji. Many of us are driven by the desires of the ego. Constantly seeking the gratification that will make us feel whole, although we all know the ultimate treasures lie within. However, desires...

by Mandev Kaur Through the Tenth Gate, the stream of nectar flows; take your bath in this. – Kabeer, from daily Hukamnama 26th August 2018 We were preparing for Yogi Bhajan’s birthday for 11 days. In that time teachers and students were chanting 31-minute Guru Ram Das Mantra in each class. Some teachers would dedicate their classes to talk more about Yogi...

I love my work, my practice and teaching. However I often find I am totally caught up in the busyness of life, doing, planning, presenting, action, sometimes it doesn’t stop, I’ll admit I buzz off the adrenaline of ‘doing’, the excitement, the expansion. However, I recently had this profound realisation after working on the Mantra’s, ‘Ong’ and ‘Kar’. ‘Ong’ is associated...

This is known as the Golden Rule: a fantastic, simple maxim to live by. And yet…how much, honestly, do we love ourselves? How much do you love yourself? Perhaps this question makes you squirm? Or perhaps you equate self-love with egotism? Narcissism? Self-adoration? And yet…the foundations of the spiritual life begin, and end, with loving the Self. What do we mean exactly...
