Date and Location:
November 23th - 25th
Mount Eden Retreat
56 Millpond Road, Washington, NJ USA 07882

With Akalsukh Singh & Sat Purkh Kaur Khalsa

Kundalini is the universal life force. It is your core source of vital energy.
Kundalini yoga and meditation is a powerful technology used to awaken the energy of consciousness which lies within you.

It is often called the "Yoga of Awareness" because it develops and strengthens the nervous system, heightening your conscious awareness on subtle levels, increasing your intuitive capacities and the development of the "neutral mind" and higher states of awareness.

Spend the season of gratitude and giving with friends old and new in the beautiful landscape of Mount Eden Retreat. Click Here for a Virtual Tour >>

On this weekend we will put in your hands all the tools of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation as taught by Yogi Bhajan, delivered by experienced teachers at a pace in which you can absorb and effectively integrate their healing effects.

The surroundings are beautiful which adds tremendously to this healing experience. The peaceful natural environment is totally private, with varied terrain which includes secluded fields, woods and meadows. There are huge rock outcroppings, boulders and ridges, a spring-fed pond filled with large gold carp, and fire pit next to the pond. Live music in the early morning practice can be magical, walking meditation into the forest can re-awaken our senses, enhancing our connection with our spirit through the power of nature.

Evening meditations outdoors around a fire pit, and an organic gourmet vegetarian cuisine prepared by the local Chef with products from local organic farmers, can and will make of this 3 day retreat a TRANSFORMATIONAL experience.

Each day you can participate in morning Sadhana, yoga and meditation workshops, afternoon outdoor activities like hiking, walking meditation, and evening chanting and Kirtan.

Activities will include:

  • Sadhana- early morning group practice
  • Kundalini Yoga and meditation workshops
  • Kirtan (chanting with live mantra music)
  • Fire Pit outdoor evening meditation
  • Walking Intuitive Meditation into the Forest
  • Breathwalk® Meditation as taught by Yogi Bhajan

Each portion of the program will be presented by Akalsukh Singh, Sevakpreet Kaur (Karolina), Sat Purkh Kaur Khalsa, Abhai Raj Singh Khalsa and Jivanjeet Kaur.

 Karolina__Bibiji.jpg

Kundalini has been one of the catalysts in transforming Karolina’s life. When life presented the most difficult of challenges, she prayed for guidance and help to gain courage, wisdom and patience. Soon she found herself in a “Yoga and Art” retreat, a Kundalini Yoga workshop.

The culminating point and answer to her personal prayers was when she found her teacher, Akalsukh Singh who became a illuminating guide.

Recognizing the power of this wonderful technology, Karolina understood she found the spiritual path she had been searching for but didn’t even know. Adopting the yogic lifestyle, Kundalini Yoga became not just a practice to Karolina, but a way of life.

Her classes are energizing, powerful, yet centering and calming. She challenges her students to give their best effort. Suitable for all body types and ages, all levels of experience and flexibility
