Today we attended Mukta Kaur’s class on Superhealth, Yogic Science on Addictive Behaviours. Such a powerful and informative lecture. Addictive behaviours are not just drugs, alcohol but also relates to technology as well as other things. If for example you are constantly on your phone, checking emails, surfing and not able to stop at your command…..this would be classed as addictive behaviour.
Mukta Kaur Khalsa, PhD, is the director of SuperHealth® and studied the technology of behavioral addictions with Yogi Bhajan. She serves as Special Representative to the United Nations Office of Drug Control and Crime in Vienna, Austria. Author of Meditations for Addictive Behavior, Mukta directed a pilot project for substance abusers in collaboration with the Punjab government in India. She is also the coauthor of a research paper in the Journal of Ethnicity in Substance Abuse. A worldwide trainer and lecturer, she incorporates SuperHealth technology with other modalities to enhance the healing process and expedite recovery
Here is a book I definitely recommend (takes you to Amazon)

Mahan Rishi Singh co-founded the Khalsa Healing Arts and Yoga Center in Yardley, PA. USA in 1989. He began studying yoga and meditation in 1973-4 and entered the Guru Ram Das Ashram in 1975 as a student and teacher of Kundalini yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.

He has been leading retreats and yatras (spiritual pilgrimages) to India, Nepal and Tibet over the past 25 years. His experiences of the kundalini and subtle-energy currents of the etheric body have led him to guide his students toward Self-realization and illumination through Universal love and understanding. His vision is for each student to have an experience of vital energy, great joy, and liberating peace.

Afterwards, I went to the class by Guruka Singh and Guruka Kaur on living a yogic marriage. Guruka Singh is a teacher, writer and inveterate punster. He loves telling stories and has spent many hours telling them to his kids. His love of poetry and Gurbani have led him to translate Yogi Bhajan’s Gurmukhi poems in Furmaan Khalsa as well as translating Japji Sahib and other Gurbani. The original founder of SikhNet, he now lives under the blue skies of New Mexico with his beloved Khalsa family.
There should be a full course just on marriage, we all have so much to learn!
After dinner it was off to bed…..
