when the silence is too loud
solace; nowhere to be found
a thousand thoughts within my mind
I ask: how can I be grounded and kind?
days turn into years
further crippling my fears
I work hard, eat right, sleep tight
but there is no peace in my night
how do I stop these thoughts
forevermore I am caught
in these endless thoughts
Me myself and my mind is a workshop inspired by my old journal!
The above is something I wrote as a university student many many moons ago.
It all felt very overwhelming back then, so many decisions, choices and ‘stuff’ to achieve
The truth is, there is no stage of life where it is ‘easy’
No amount of money, status or relationships brings us complete peace
‘We’ are our only constant in our life
So I invested a lot of time with myself, within my own mind
It is what drew me to yoga and meditation
Yoga simply translates as ‘union of the mind body and soul’
This ancient technology intrigued me
It led me to many different practices, but it is when I finally got to Kundalini yoga practice, did I begin to delve into the mind. Not only did this wisdom help guide me, it provided tools to develop awareness for ‘me, myself and my mind’
This workshop will give you the opportunity to get to know your ‘minds’ all three of them! Their personalities, strengths and weaknesses and most importantly, some tools for you to develop your own daily practice to keep our body and mind healthy.
I won’t sugar coat it! It is a journey. There are no short cut or quick tricks, its daily practice and a commitment to yourself.
Hopefully this workshop will be one step towards that epic adventure!
I look forward to meeting you and your minds on the 2nd of May 2020

Come as you are, with all of your thoughts and endless to do lists as we will delve into the state of our minds through the written word (bring note books/journals) There will be Tea and open circle for anyone who wants to discuss their experience and Harpreet will begin to share what the ancient Yogis discovered and passed down through yogic technology. We will talk about Yogic anatomy, use some tools during the discussion. We will be focusing on pranyama (breath work) Kundalini kriya (prescribed exercises for specific therapeutic effect) meditation and deep relaxation. These sessions have been designed for both regular practitioners and those who are starting this journey. Although there will be other people in the session: this is your journey, you share what you feel comfortable to, you get out of it what you put in. As you may of may not know, Kundalini Yoga practice is all about going within and being the best version of yourself, thus, exercises are done with our eyes closed. I guide you through the movements explaining what you should be feeling, how to modify or go deeper into the movement. This is a very individual practice. No one will see what you are doing and you will not see what others are doing - it is less distracting and comforting to know you can let go and not be self conscious. This is something I particularly admire about kindalini practice. At the end of the session, we will have more tea and have the opportunity for Q&A and a general mingle.

we are what we repeatedly do ....
I feel this applies to our mind body and soul..... we carry wounds, memories and energetic imprints with us..... pushing down what we deem to be too painful or unpleasant..... or simply, we have no time to process them....but as we all know, they are still there.....lurking in our subconscious mind, waiting to erupt when we least expect them or to show up as an unexplained alignment of the mind and body,
Yogi Bhajan continually stared that the mind is a great follower: terrible leader. As we approach a new year and as we often, reluctantly look back at our resolutions for the year .... with guilt and and a deflated sense of achievement...... may be this year do something different? take the yogic approach
Stilling the mind through kundalini technology, we will create a safe and secure space within which you can dive within you search for what your mind body and soul needs ..... beyond what your ego thinks you want. Giving yourself space and time
Intentionally working with the seasons this workshop will take place during winter solstice, and excellent time to go within and seek truth
