INTRODUCTION & GOAL
The need for people to share their emotions and feelings with others is an important part of the process in connecting to our 'Authentic Self'. When we hear our thoughts expressed in words and view our reflection in the eyes of others, we often can see what is hindering us from living from our core or True Self. Once we discover this essential part of our being we can then embrace our spiritual destiny and can live in health, harmony and peace with those around us - a holistic life.
The topics are based on Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan and other related topics. Below is a list of Sacred Circles 1-11. As this is a continuing project, there will be additions to the websites with more Sacred Circle workshops.
Sacred Circle is a safe, trusting space, with this in mind whatever anyone shares within the circle remains within that circle and is kept confidential.
Some of the topics will be from the KY Level 2 Teacher Training; other topics will be mostly from Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®, and other important spiritual practices.
The flow of Sacred Circle:
Introduction to Sacred Circle
Tuning in with 'Adi Mantra' with explanation for new comers
Warm up exercises
Kriya and/or Meditation
Relaxation with Gong (or with KY meditation music)
Varieties of sharing: flash writing of experience, pre-planned questions to be answered by participants, expression in art form (materials to be distributed)
Closing with Sat Nam
NOTE: Sacred Circles were conducted as 2 hour workshops, but you can easily make them 3 hours.
Evaluation: evaluation questions to be handed out for participants to fill - samples of evaluation questions listed below and you can add your own:
- In the deepest part of the meditation – did you experience a change in the frequency of your thoughts and feelings?
- What are your resistances (in relation to the topic)?
- What are your challenges (in relation to the topic)?
