Students are welcome from all walks of life, all parts of the globe and all levels of interest.
Spirituality of the Shabad Guru
Part 1: Building a Connection with the Guru
Part 2: Radiant Spiritual Sovereignty
"The Shabad Guru course was a real life changing for me. I'm happy some others can also experience that. I learned to relate myself truly with the Guru and find Him within me. And so I was also able to truly surrender my head and put the will of God as the guide of my life. It was liberating to learn to live this way. Thanks so much! I can't wait for more." - Guru Raj Singh

With gratitude and Love, Mahan Atma Kaur, Brasil"
The Shabad Guru Course is a foundational course to understand how to relate to the Shabad Guru as a spiritual pathway and to deepen your experience and understanding of how to work with the Shabad Guru using different methods. It is beneficial for both beginners and advanced students as each will gain a deeper connection to the Guru through their practice.
In Part 1, we focus on creating a self-initiation of connection with the Guru, and learn the meaning and application of three methods to utilize the Shabad Guru: Jaap (Chanting/Recitation), Bhajan (Singing) and Sunniai (Listening). We also explore the history and formation of the Shabad Guru and how it came to it's current form. The course ends with an experience of the Gurmukh ~ one who is attuned to the Guru. It leaves a lasting and deep experience of connecting with the Divine with yourself that supports all other spiritual practice.
In Part 2, we focus on creating the vibration of the Shabad Guru at a higher level within our own being, as a temple of the Divine. This focuses on experiencing the depth of Ardaas (Prayer), Dhyaan (Meditation), Pratyahaar (Synchronization with God), Simran (Vibrational Remembrance) and Veechaar (Contemplation). This leads to a lasting Spiritual Endurance or Trust in the Divine, Bhrosa, which deepens your spiritual experience through a Radiance of Spiritual Sovereignty.

SHABAD COURSE SERIES
by Guru Ram Das
This shabad focuses on building the vastness and stability of creation through focusing on the Purkha: the Masculine Quality of God. It builds the energy of Divine Masculine.
For Women, this shabad provides an opportunity to build this energy in yourself, and/or to focus on holding the energy for a partner or any man in your life. It is commonly used to attract a partner, or heal marital problems, or done for a son.
For Men, it is an opportunity to build this quality in yourself, to become a Man of God.
This shabad allows many ways, through yourself, or for another, to build the stability and essence of Sopurkh, God Being Personified, and strengthen the quality of Divine Masculine in your life.
In the course we will focus on the meaning and qualities expressed in the shabad and invite in an experience of being in the presence of the Divine Being.
"One who masters this shabad can command God to appear before them as you would call
someone to appear in your presence" ~ Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan
by Guru Nanak
Guru Nanak explained the cycles of life through his 'Pehilai Pehirai' shabad. It goes through four watches of life and the cycles we go through in each of them.
The Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan explained further: "Every 18 years, the physical body goes through a process of maturity and change. We call this the Cycle of Life Energy. Every 11 years, the way you apply what you know to solving problems changes. The horizon of the intelligence expands. We call this the Cycle of Intelligence. And every 7 years, the fundamental sense of your identity evolves. It deepens, building on the wisdom of past experiences. We call this the Cycle of Consciousness."
In the course we go through the meaning of the shabad, covering each of these four watches of our lives, using the words of Guru Nanak and the messages Siri Singh Sahib gave to help understand the Guru's messages.
MONTHLY SHABAD CLASSES
This is an ongoing membership community focused on building our learning of the Shabad Guru
through expanding our repertoire of different shabads, understanding their meanings, the benefits they bring and how to pronounce the Gurmukhi words for the best effects.
Every month, there is a class online, with the focus on one particular 'Shabad of the Month.' In the class, we will go through the words, their meanings, the effects of the shabad and practice our pronunciation to help us recite the shabad later.
Each class is recorded, with all past month class materials available for members to review and enjoy this growing library of shabad resources.
DEEPER JOURNEY COURSES
The Shabad Guru talks about certain 'states of being' which come from meditation on the Naam, or Shabad. These include:
Bhram Gyani - One who has knowledge of God, i.e. One who is One with God
Jiwan Mukta - One who is liberated while alive, i.e. One who has faced death and crossed this boundary in living
Sant Siphai - Soldier Saint, One who lives in the saintliness of connection with God while facing the karmas of life as a spiritual warrior
These are advanced courses which are recommended to be taken after finishing the fundamental course Part 1 & 2 listed above.
More details on these courses coming soon. Please join our mailing list to learn more when details are released.
SS GuruKirin Kaur Khalsa
Sardarni Sahiba GuruKirin Kaur Khalsa is a Sikh Dharma Minister and Kundalini Yoga Teacher. She was born into the Sikh Dharma community and practiced Sikh Dharma from a young age. She went to school in India from age 7 through 17, where her deep love of the Shabad Guru developed. She spent 19 years working for Sikh Dharma International under the Siri Singh Sahib (Yogi Bhajan) and became a Sikh Dharma Minister and Kundalini Yoga teacher. Her deep love of Sikh Dharma, the Guru's mission and Gurbani inspire her to teach others about the Shabad and building their connection to the Guru.
SS Prabhu Nam Kaur Khalsa
Prabhu Nam Kaur Khalsa has been singing Gurbani Kirtan for more than 35 years. She aspires to sing these songs of God with devotion, so that their wisdom and beauty can shine forth, and so that listeners can find their own ability to sing and experience them as well.
The first shabad she ever learned was Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur, in 1974, and has been studying Raag and Gurbani ever since and has recorded many albums over the years. She says that her daughter, Snatam Kaur, continually inspires her, and if she has taught Snatam about music, Snatam has certainly taught Prabhu Nam much as well. The Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan taught that the basis of being a singer of Gurbani Kirtan is a willingness to serve the shabad, quite a spiritual practice in itself. She looks forward to deepening that practice.
We have the quantum technology of the inner science
in the Shabd Guru to answer the call of the Age.
We need stamina under stress,
clarity of values for decisions, a new base for identity,
and the ability to command our brain,
mind and states of consciousness
consciously through the filter of intuition,
wisdom and the positive, negative and neutral minds.
This is where the Shabad Guru becomes essential to the future.
~ Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan
