Collectively, we are feeling overwhelmed. We live in turbulent times… pandemics, racial discord, political divisions, an endangered ecology! Personal breakdown and information overload are everywhere. Our need to live balanced and integrated lives is more acute than ever before. The Aquarian world of the new millennium requires a new relationship between peoples, cultures, and Mother Earth.
It’s not just only having more choices¾we are flooded with options. What we need is an elevated capacity to make choices about the things that matter. It’s not that we need more information. We need the wisdom to use the information we already have to make a difference in our lives and the lives of others. It’s not that we need another philosophy. We need the practical experience of an everyday personal practice, which can expand our awareness to create spiritual fitness so we can act in alignment with our beliefs.
Kundalini Yoga is a special kind of technology with a unique contribution developing the potentials to handle the problems of our times. In the body, it produces vitality; in the complex of the mind, it awakens intelligence and develops wisdom and intuition; in the heart, it establishes compassion; in each person’s consciousness, it builds the clarity to act with fearless integrity.
We yearn for a more profound sense of awareness and a greater understanding of our world in relation to Spirit. We need to reconnect our communities in mutual respect and trust, without bias¾an awareness that gives us a broader, deeper, and fresher approach to our views and provides lasting answers beyond the band-aid approaches of the past.
Finding solutions to our problems that will be all-inclusive, and not only among ourselves as human beings, but inclusive with mother earth, our air, and our water, as fundamental partners in global healing, is an urgent and monumental task.
Guru Gayatri embodies this belief. We believe this state of awareness can be reached. We believe happiness is everyone’s birthright.
We envision a World where Everyone is Happy, Healthy, and Whole… at Ease and in Balance.
The Guru Gayatri vision is to create a Yoga Village in the heart of Seattle. A sacred place of practice and community where individuals of all kinds can experience the ancient art of yoga and meditation. A home to nurture our spirits and collaborate with others to create a sacred community where each person is encouraged to reach their highest and purest potential.
The Guru Gayatri vision is to carry the yogic teachings throughout our community by building social programs that address our most pressing needs.
Using the tools and teachings of Kundalini Yoga and its meditation practices, Guru Gayatri will serve all people helping each person reconnect with their unlimited potential for growth and play a vital role in helping to build a community that is happy, healthy, and Whole.
