Sadasat Simran Singh Khalsa is a member of Chardikala Jatha, and a Hazuri Ragi at Sri Harimandir Sahib, Amritsar. He lived in India for 15 studying Raga and Sikhism. Here are some things he has to share on the subject of raag.

You can meet him this summer at Camp Miri Piri June 11-14 in New Mexico, USA. See the video below, clic on the link

Raag is an ancient science from india. It started when the rishi munis were trying to communicate with angels. They used a melodic code to call on angels.

So how old is raag? It was written in the vedas, and things written in the vedas may have originated from thousands of years before they were even written. So raag is thousands of years old. Raag is always evolving. In the time of the Guru’s (1490s to 1720s) the style of singing was dhrupad. Dhrupad is a gradual and slow approach to music. It may have taken 1 hour just to complete 1 shabad in this style.

How does raag work? Each raag has a specific combination of notes on a specific scale (mode) where you emphasize one particular note above the rest. There are also supporting notes. Each raag gives you a different experience, but each raag will give you an experience of bliss (anand).

How to approach music? There are 2 approaches to things; (devotion) bhagti and (power) shakti. Let’s talk about devotion (bhagti). It takes time. Part of devotion is the concept of ‘sahej’ which means consistence, patience, and commitment. You do without any expectation or fatigue, company, time. you are in the moment. when you do rag with sahej it becomes sweet. the catch 22 is that if you expect it, you don’t get the sweetness, but if you don’t expect anything you will get the reward.

Rishi munis would do this for hours until their whole body resonates with that sound. to do this they would practice one rag for years. To do a “sidhi” of a raag is a level of mastery where every cell of your being owns the raag.

Les Bienfaits de la méditation sonore, la sonothérapie

Bienfaits de la sonothérapie, la méditation sonore…

La Sonothérapie est une pratique thérapeutique par les ondes sonores. Découvrez cette thérapie que l’on pourrait surnommer de méditation sonore. Elle vous surprendra en touchant votre inconscient pour vous apporter tous ses bienfaits.

Ondes Alpha et Ondes Beta, qu’est-ce- que c’est ?

Les Ondes Alpha correspondent à un état d’inconscience (intériorisation de la conscience), de méditation et d’ouverture vers la création. Ce sont des ondes dont la fréquence est comprise entre 8 et 13 Hz. Par exemple, les ondes alpha peuvent vous amener à un état de relaxation maximale et donc de transe hypnotique.
Les Ondes Béta sont la conscience, l’état de vigilance et d’attention orienté vers l’extérieur. Ces ondes ont une fréquence qui varie de 12 à 30 Hz.

Les Ondes Alpha et la Sonothérapie

Les bols chantants produisent des ondes sonores correspondant aux ondes Alpha. En fonction de leurs dimensions, les bols chantants produiront des vibrations et sons plus ou moins graves voire aigüs qui réveilleront, sensibiliseront et traiteront certains points et/ou chakras en vous sans que vous en preniez plus ou moins conscience.

Votre Thérapeute, Professeur de Yoga ou Maître de Méditation joueront des sons pour faire vibrer vos ondes Alpha et vous en apporter tous leurs bienfaits.

Les ondes Alpha sont générées par le cerveau et correspondent à un état de calme mental et sensoriel vous faisant entrer dans un repos total méditatif.

Depuis quelques années, la médecine, la pédiatrie se penchent sur le rythme cérébral alpha.

Les ondes Alpha améliorent l’apprentissage cérébral et facilitent l’intériorisation de la conscience.

Les personnes ayant une forte créativité et une pensée positive ont des ondes Alpha développées par exemple.

Les ondes Alpha permettent de synchroniser les 2 hémisphères du cerveau.

Démonstration de l’intérêt des Ondes Alpha

La méditation permet de produire et développer les ondes Alpha.

Comme vous le savez, le son est une vibration qui voyage dans l’espace tel un mouvement vibratoire et rapide. Hors notre corps est composé de 65% d’eau d’où son aptitude à recevoir les résonances et les vibrations émises par les bruits nous environnant. N’oubliez pas que notre corps est sensible à tout bruit quel qu’il soit et que chaque son émet un sentiment, une émotion, une sensation inconscientes sur lui.

Un constat simple, vous êtes dans un endroit sans bruit ou à écouter une musique douce, vous êtes calme.

Vous vous trouvez dans un endroit où règne l’agitation et le bruit, vous ressentez un certain énervement. Ce n’est pas un hasard.

C’est en cela que la sonothérapie emploie les sons bienfaisants pour vous apporter un réel bien-être.

Le son peut être défini comme la partie audible du spectre des vibrations acoustiques mais il y a aussi celles que l’on ne perçoit pas et qui sont beaucoup plus puissantes. Il n’y a pas deux personnes qui entendent les mêmes choses, donc nous parlerons de moyenne audiométrique.

L’oreille de l’homme perçoit les fréquences comprises entre 20 Hz (graves) et 20 000 Hz (aigüs). Certains sons ne sont pas perceptibles par l’oreille humaine notamment les ultrasons. Est considéré comme infrason, toute fréquence inférieure à 20 Hz et comme ultrason toute fréquence au-dessus de 20 000 Hz.

L’infrason vous fait vivre une sensation de poids intérieur, de lourdeur, de fatigue voire de mal-être qui peut s’avérer destructeur et néfaste pour l’homme.

Les ultrasons sont un moyen de communication chez les animaux comme les chauve-souris, les baleines, les dauphins, … inaudible chez l’être humain. (source à lire aussi wikipedia)

Comme vous le savez, les ultrasons sont très employés dans le secteur médical pour les échographies, le traitement des calculs rénaux, certaines pathologies lourdes, elles ont de réels impacts positifs sur le corps.

Exercices de pratique sur votre tapis de yoga et avec un coussin

Exercice de Sonothérapie Simple

Exercice à faire chez vous au calme, assis ou allongé, posez vos deux mains sur votre ventre :

Prononcez en continu sans arrêter le son « sssssssssssssssss », voyez ce que vous ressentez.

Prononcez en continu sans arrêter le son « iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii », voyez ce que vous ressentez.

Enfin prononcez en continu sans arrêter le son « Ommmmmmmmmmmm », et constatez qu’en poursuivant ce son, vous vous posez, votre ventre réagi, un état apaisant vous envahit à contrario des autres.

C’est là que vous commencez à percevoir le bienfait que peuvent vous apporter certaines sonorités.

Les sons ont la capacité de modifier notre débit sanguin, notre état d’anxiété, notre calme… Les sons Alpha nous apportent la sérénité, apaisent les désordres psychologiques, préviennent de certains états dépressifs et maladies…

Le son peut être réparateur et apaisant. Alors tous à la Sonothérapie, Essayez

In the practice of Kundalini Yoga, as our awareness expands, it impacts every aspect of our lives. Over the years, Yogi Bhajan gave guidelines about how to keep the Kundalini flowing through the day, just by making some simple changes to our daily routine. For instance, taking cold showers, wearing white, and covering the head are habits we can develop. These habits have a tremendous impact on our consciousness and vitality.

Sleep

Brushing your teeth

A dentist will tell you all the benefits of brushing your teeth to keep

your teeth and gums healthy. A yogi will agree and give you even

more reasons to brush your teeth and clear your “monkey glands”

for overall health.

Monkey Glands

During the night, your mouth turns into an incubator, warm, moist,

and cozy. In that environment, bacteria have an orgy and they

multiply like crazy. (1) The coziest spot for the bacteria are two

pockets in the throat that Yogi Bhajan called “monkey glands.”

Unless you get rid of that toxic accumulation first thing in the

morning, you will swallow it with the first sip of liquid. So, to avoid

poisoning yourself, use your toothbrush and brush way back to the

root of your tongue until you gag and cough up that disease-

producing mucous. Another benefit is that as you gag, it makes your

eyes water, which helps preserve the eyesight. 

Tooth Powder

For cleaning the teeth and brushing the tongue to induce gagging,

use the following mixture of astringent powders:

  • 1 part sea salt
  • 2 parts potassium alum

Potassium alum is also effective for preventing gum disease. You

can keep the mixture in a re-used glass jar. Pour a little in the palm

of your hand, then wet your toothbrush and dip it in. You can finish

with your favorite toothpaste on your teeth, if you wish.

HAIR CARE

"God gave us long hair for a purpose, and He gave it to every human because God

wants us to crown ourselves, to have all 26 parts of our skull in a situation so the

solar polarity of our skull and brain is entitled to our infinite energy. He created us

for that." -Yogi Bhajan 1/15/97

Hair grows on almost all places on the human body, and in

the science of yoga, it serves the purpose of drawing energy

into each area, and protecting it. (1) Caring for hair as a gift and

a resource is another useful yogic tool for everyday, spiritual living.

Function

Hair serves several functions for the human being:*

• Maintains the body’s electromagnetic field, acting as antennae

   for the aura.

• Hair is typically abundant where major glands function

  (e.g. eyebrows, under arms), affecting hormones and the

   entire electromagnetic body health.

• A man’s beard covers the pranic nerve in the chin controlled

   by the moon. Without hair, the male nervous system cannot

   handle this energy, while the female’s can.

• Gathers phosphorous and vitamin D from the sun.

• Concentrates solar energy at the pineal gland when worn in

   a rishi knot (see Covering the Head) at the top of the head.

• Note that wearing bangs over the forehead impedes the

   transmission of light to the pineal gland through the porous

   bones of the forehead.

• When kept uncut, the tremendous energy and materials used

   to build new protein-rich hair instead goes to the brain and

   other functions of the body.

• Uncut hair encourages rising of the Kundalini energy.

Q & A With Yogi Bhajan

Question: Most Kundalini Yoga students let their hair grow.

Is this necessary?

Answer: No. You can practice with any length hair, but the hair was

the first technique to raise the Kundalini energy. When the hair is at

its natural full length and coiled over the anterior fontanel for men or

the posterior fontanel for women, it draws pranic energy into the

spine. The force of this downward positive energy causes the

Kundalini energy to rise for balance. Actually, the hair was so

important that the word for consciousness, kundalini, derives from

the kundal which means “a coil of the beloved’s hair.”

Care

Yogic treatment of your hair ensures it will optimally serve you and

your higher purpose.

• Uncut hair collects prana and acts as a filter and shield. (2)

• Includes hair all over the body (e.g. head, legs, armpits,

   face, etc.).

• Notice how you feel when the hair reaches its natural length.

   Yes, this can be a big change and take some time!

• Combing with a wooden comb (or natural bristle brush)

   neutralizes the static electricity, distributes natural oils, and

   keeps the hairs untangled.1

• Combing the hair down calms and soothes.

• Combing the hair up energizes and invigorates.

• Use these effects to your advantage! Comb your hair if you

   need a pick-me-up or in order to relax.

• Make a habit of combing your hair for 5 minutes morning

   and night.

• Prior to showering, vigorously massage oil (almond oil

   recommended) into your hair and scalp.(3)

• Wrap it with a thick cloth (so you don’t mess up your clothes).

• Let sit for an hour or two then wash your hair as usual.

• For an extra treat, mix yogurt and a fragrance in with the oil

  before massaging your hair.

• Expose your hair, head, and skull to the sun at least once a

   week.(3)

SLEEP

 

The purpose of sleep is to allow the body and the mind to rest,

recuperate, regenerate – and do some self-healing. You should

wake up rested, refreshed, and alert, ready to face the day.

Do you? (1)

About Sleep

There are four phases of sleep:

Falling asleep

Often this stage is equal to tossing, turning, and worrying. It’s a

big waste of time and energy.

Light dream or “reverie” stage

Dream state

It is said that whatever adventures you experience dreaming take

ten times more energy than if they happened while awake.

Deep, dreamless sleep, breath is slow and steady

This is the only stage that rejuvenates and recharges. According

to the yogis, this stage lasts for two and a half hours.

Many yogis believed that if the three unnecessary

(and draining) stages of sleep are reduced or eliminated,

then you would need a lot less time in bed. When your breath

is not slow and steady, as occurs in the dream stages, sleep can

actually tear down your nervous system. Most of us take a little

while to get into and out of the deep sleep state. From a yogic

perspective, five and a half hours can, in fact, be sufficient in

place of the eight or ten hours we often think is needed.

Preparing Your Sleeping Space

Adjusting your bedroom is the perfect place to begin restful sleep.

• Get the firmest mattress that works for you, in order to

   support your spine and let your nervous system relax.

• Orient your bed east-west to cut across the earth’s

   north-south magnetic field. Your personal energy can get

   overpowered if it is in the same orientation as the earth’s

   magnetic field. You wake up tired and grouchy.

• Consider having inspirational music or affirmations

   continuously playing in your bedroom, especially while you

   sleep. You can keep the volume very low (barely audible)

   and it will still affect your subconscious.

Preparing for Sleep

Follow these suggestions in the hour or so before bedtime.

• Make sure you’ve sweated and laughed already that day. 

   If not, go on a walk before bedtime (and laugh during it!).

• Avoid a heavy meal just before bedtime.

• Brush your teeth (see Brushing Your Teeth section).

• Brush your hair down and, if long, braid it so it stays neat

   and tidy through the night (see Hair Care and Function 

    section).

• Drink a glass or two of water. Dehydration can disturb the

   sleeping mind. It’s okay if you have to wake up to go to the

   bathroom.

• Wash your feet in cold water to get your nervous system

   ready for relaxation (see Hydrotherapy section)

• Do a few Kundalini Yoga exercises like Life-nerve stretch,

   Bridge pose, and Shoulder stand

• Practice the “How to Conquer Sleep” kriya in the Sadhana

   Guidelines manual.

• Read something inspirational, meditate, and/or say your

   prayers.

• Foot massage… ahhhhhhh.

Falling Asleep (2)

Complete these steps as you are lying in bed. As soon as the

breath becomes regular and slow, you will have a chance to go

quickly through the preliminary stages of sleep and almost

immediately reach the deep dreamless sleep state, avoiding the

energy-draining dream stage altogether.

• Take all your worries, concerns, ideas, and problems, wrap

   them up in a package, and put them on a shelf in your

   mind labeled G.O.D. You’ll be amazed at how many are gone,

   solved, or improved by the time you wake up.

• Set your mental timer to wake you up in the morning. 

   Yes, your subconscious mind has a great sense of time and

   will respond to your directive.

• Lie on your stomach, turn your head so your right cheek is

   on the pillow. This automatically opens your left nostril to

   bring in the cooling, soothing, calming energy.

• Do long, deep breathing through both nostrils.

• Block your right nostril with your hand and continue long,

  deep breathing through the left nostril.

• Once you feel drowsy, turn over onto your back, side, or

   your preferred sleeping position.

• Continue long, deep breathing until asleep.

HYDROTHERAPY

Testimonials

"It's better than a morning cup of coffee." 

~ Upma Kaur, Española, New Mexico, USA

"I feel revitalized in my whole body and my chakras are more in

balance. I can't imagine not starting my day with it."

~ Shiv Anter Kaur, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA 

One of the most essential steps in the preparation for morning

sadhana and good health is a cold shower. Yes, cold. (1) The

process is called hydrotherapy orishnaan. There’s a lot more to

it than just getting outwardly clean. 

Why

In just a few minutes you can open your capillaries,

increase your circulation, wake up and strengthen your

entire nervous system. 

When the cold water hits your body, all the blood rushes to the

organs. The blood moves in order to protect the organs and keep

them warm. This is an automatic self-defense mechanism.

As the blood moves inward, it flushes the capillary system. In this

way, the capillary system of the body gets a powerful work-out.

According to Yogi Bhajan, cold showers open the capillaries and

clear toxins at the deepest level of the body.

Cold showers stimulate the body in a way that can vastly improve

circulation and flush the organs clean. This, in turn, keeps your

skin radiant and the blood chemistry young and healthy. It also

stimulates healthy secretions from the glandular system and

strengthens the nervous system.

“When the marrow in the blood does not have the faculty to

change itself, then it cannot be changed. The only last chance

is that you can transplant it. That’s why people who do not

take cold showers have arthritis, bone problems, marrow

problems and artery problems. Every problem in the body

is a result of your capillaries not opening and not getting

flushed every day. Your glandular system is the guardian

of your whole system.” 
-Yogi Bhajan, July 31, 1996

How*

Follow these steps for the first victory of each day:

• Massage your body with a small amount of oil. Almond

oil is highly recommended. It contains lots of minerals. You

won’t be greasy after the shower. When wet, the oil gets

absorbed by the skin.

• Wear cotton shorts or boxers that cover your thighs. 

Make sure they are loose, in order to create an air pocket

around the thighs. Avoid skin tight, polyester athletic shorts. 

The shorts protect the femur bone which controls the

calcium-magnesium balance in the body.

• Get the cold water flowing. Move in and out of the

water several times, constantly massaging your body until

the water no longer feels cold (really!).

• Feel free to do a victory shout (Wahe Guru!) or use

another mantra like Ang Sang Wahe Guru 

(God is in every part of me).

• Start with the extremities – feet and hands, arms and legs.

• Go slowly if you have high blood pressure or problems

with the sciatic nerve.

Women should note the following:

 

• Make sure to massage the breasts to increase circulation to

   that area and clean out toxins.

• Don’t take cold showers while menstruating.

• While pregnant, give the baby a cold shower for no longer

   than three minutes and stop altogether after the seventh

   month.

• Dry off briskly with a rough towel to make the body shine.

 

Don’t you already feel invigorated, just by reading this description?

A cold shower can also be a little intimidating. It can help to make

sure the bathroom is warm (use a space heater or run hot water

to get it steamy). If you really can’t take a full cold shower,

at least wash your hands, elbows, face, ears, and feet with

cold water. Above all, be kind to yourself.

Someone asked Yogi Bhajan about taking a hot shower first, then

ending with cold water. He replied, “That is like eating a lot of junk

food and then having a healthy meal.” If you really love hot

showers, wonderful. Take them at night or another time for bathing

your skin and hair. The morning shower is for your circulation and

stimulation of your nervous and glandular system.

Do not take a cold shower if you have a fever, rheumatism,

or heart disease.

“When you take a cold shower, the blood from inside hits

the outside to cover the attack. In that fast moment, it opens

the capillaries. When the capillaries are open, they feed your

glands and when your glandular system is well-fed, it secretes.

The chemistry of your blood becomes perfect. That gives you

the capacity to act, think, know; and it gives you grit, stamina.” -
Yogi Bhajan, July 30, 1996

COVERING THE HEAD

During a class of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®,

chances are the teacher and many of the students will have their

heads covered with a scarf, hat, or turban.

Methods of Covering

the Head

Yogi Bhajan taught us that the hair is alive and has an energy

function. We are training ourselves to be aware of and master our

subtle energies and so he recommends covering the head and hair

with a cotton cloth or wrapped turban.*

head_covering5.jpg

Wearing a head covering enables you to command your sixth

center, the Ajna Chakra. Covering the head stabilizes the

cerebral matter and the 26 parts of the brain, which

are interlocked with the neurological system and

electromagnetic field. Covering the head creates a

focus of the functional circuit of the hemispheres of

the brain, and tunes the neurological system. The

whole head is to be covered, not just the crown chakra.

Turbans as Technology

Head coverings of any kind are useful for a meditative

practice. Turbans in particular are useful for holding

energy in, and for creating a meditative focus at the

third eye point (brow point). In addition, the turban

provides a nice cranial adjustment. Some teachers

wear a turban or head covering for these yogic

reasons alone.**

 

The skull is made up of tiny bones that are

constantly moving even if only by micromillimeters

and the degree to which they move impacts levels

of calmness or anxiety. Covering the head provides

a sense of containment and focus while practicing

yoga or while doing work that requires clarity of

thought. It literally helps "keep your head together."*

 

The benefit of wearing a turban is that when you wrap

the 5 to 7 layers of cloth, you cover the temples, which

prevents any variance or movement in the different parts

of the skull. A turban automatically gives you a cranial

self-adjustment. You can pay for a cranial adjustment,

or you can tie a turban for free!

CLOTHING AND

PROJECTION

“The time has come not to search for God,

but to be God. Time is not to worship God,

but to trust and dwell in the working God." 
-Yogi Bhajan

How you dress is a personal choice. When you choose to

dress with grace, dignity, modesty, and elegance, it can

become a tool for your own consciousness to exalt yourself

and create an effective projection.

Expand Your Aura

Each day, you can expand your aura, and increase your

openness and neutrality by wearing dignified clothes that

are white or ivory, made from cotton, silk, or wool. (1)

Wearing the color white expands your aura and

creates a powerful interface between you and your

environments. The spectrum of light energy that

makes up the color white contains the energies of

all colors. By wearing white, all the colors are available

to support and enhance the aura and the eight chakras.

Natural fibers act as energy conduits. The fibers interact

with your surroundings to conduct prana inward and filter

out negative or chaotic energy.

Yogi Bhajan on Wearing White

We wear white because it's a simple scientific fact that

every piece of matter or material has a foot and a half

aura. Every animal has a three and a half foot aura. 

Every human has a nine foot aura. And if we wear

cotton and we wear white, this color therapy gives

us one extra foot of aura. 

I trust my students will behave right. But in case they

behave like animals, they will still have a margin, an

edge. That is what it's all about. You have to wear a

natural fiber and you have to wear white. It's a pure

color therapy and it's called auric color therapy.


[From Beads of Truth, Spring 1981]

We adopted this color because of our background and

to support our development. We ask you to wear white

so that you will reflect what is outside and go within

yourself—that’s what white clothes can do for you. 

When you are totally dressed in white, the entire

face reflects it, and then it is very difficult to

become intimate. Wearing white demands that

the other person deal with you on a higher level,

because that person has to concentrate himself in

order to advance. 

The most difficult thing on this planet is to wear white top

to bottom; but it is also the greatest therapy. Some

people think we are laying a trip. We are not laying a

trip on anyone. We wear yellow. We wear blue. We

know these colors, and we know their reaction. Sit in

your own living room with a yellow house turban on

—and then a white house turban. You will find the

difference.  Colors create an uncontrollable action in

your subconscious mind of inspiration, productivity

and expansion. Colors have an excessive effect on

consciousness. We wanted to develop a very fast,

progressive, spiritual and technical method of all the

colors, so we have adopted the one color of the seven

colors, which is white. To you, white is just one color,

but to me it is the total balance of seven colors.

[Summer 1975, published in I Am a Woman, p. 156.]

© The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan

What you choose to wear should be based on your

personal experience. Because it’s real to you. Not

because someone else thinks you should do it, or

you want to look a certain way to gain attention, or

to put on an act. 

It is a privilege to always look good, and to always look

royal. Look good because you are good. Look royal

because you are royal in your consciousness. Let your

clothing project your pure self-identity. (2)

Projection and Impact 

Elegant, white dress makes you visible to people. It

gives you impact and projection. The only way you can

connect to someone so that they can remember you is

if you impact them with your projection. Dressing in

white can expand your projection and your energy,

much, much bigger than when you dress like everyone

else. When your style of dress is a reflection of

your own commitment to your inner reality, it

creates a subtle communication with other people.

The impact and projection says to someone,

“This person is different. I’ve got to talk to this

person. Maybe this person can help me.” (2)

 

We want to serve others. We want to be able to protect

others.  How can you serve or protect if other people

don’t even know you’re there? You have to be visible.

That requires courage. It requires that you be secure

in your self and that you enjoy who you are in relation

to your higher self. Then you can serve and protect from

the core of your own purity and consciousness. (2)

Être au bon endroit au bon moment!

 

 

Quelques jours auparavant, où nous discutions entre autre de spiritualité, j'ai reçue l'information que le congrès "Et si la beauté pouvait changer le monde" se déroulerait à Montréal en l'occasion de leur 8ème année.

 

Se fût très enrichissant autant par ses rencontres que par les discussions des tables rondes. Il y avait entre autre des invités du Peuple des Premières Nation, des Québécois, des Français, des Étatuniriens, ... tel que Viviane Michel, Rae Marie Taylor, François Euvé, Jacques Le Goff, Jean-Pierre Rosa, Gaston Pineau, Philippe Sers, Daniel Leblond et bien d'autres

 

 

"ET SI LA BEAUTÉ POUVAIT SAUVER LE MONDE?"

Le Longo,


la danse africaine de l’ancrage


Corps, esprit et âmes unis

 

Le Longo est une méthode de développement personnel initiée par ELIMA (Africain du Congo, chorégraphe, initiateur et professeur de Longo, auteur-compositeur-interprète, écrivain).

 

Le Longo est bien plus qu'une danse. C'est un chemin de découverte personnelle, une quête qui nous conduit à nous ancrer à l'intérieur de nous mêmes pour une meilleure approche, une meilleure connaissance de notre être à travers le mouvement.

 

C’est une danse consciente alliant corps et esprit, qui tire son sens et son essence dans ce vaste puits ancestral de la connaissance et de la sagesse Africaine.  

 

Elle nous fait grandir en conscience, découvrir le lien avec la terre, le ciel, et tout ce qui nous entoure ; guérir la séparation entre notre réalité intérieure et extérieure.

 

Chaque mouvement correspond à une intention, une intention qui estmatérialisée à travers le mouvement pour la faire passer du concept à l'expérience, qui est, en définitive, ce qui va nous permettre de prendre contact avec une nouvelle réalité, avec une nouvelle dimension de notre être. 

 

A travers le Longo, nous vivons pleinement dans le « ici et maintenant »,

nous retrouvons l’innocence, la spontanéité, et la joie.

 

Nous allons à travers le Longo, pouvoir aussi réduire le stress et les tensions, fluidifier le corps, calmer le mental.

 


L'ancrage nous permet de retrouver l'androgénie primordiale en sollicitant aussi bien notre cerveau droit que notre cerveau gauche.

 

 

PAROLES CHANSON MPEVE:

OH MPEVE WISA DO WISA DO WISA WATU SADISA (bis)  
MA NSAGA METO MA DODANGA NA TEYA LUMBU WA VULUSUA (bis) 
OH MPEVE WISA DO WISA DO WISA WATU SADISA (bis)  

Traduction :   Mpeve (témoin du Pur Esprit) vient nous guérir   Vient essuyer nos larmes, et ramène-nous à la maison

Yogi Bhajan, a Master of Kundalini Yoga by the age of 16 – itself a rare feat –gave his first lecture at a Los Angeles high school gym on January 5, 1969. Then a 39-year-old recent émigré from India, he left behind a government career in order to realize the vision of bringing Kundalini Yoga to the West. No matter that not a single person was present that evening; he came to teach and he proceeded to speak to the empty hall.

 

In the turbulent, drug culture od the 60s, Yogi Bhajan first reached out to the youth. He recognized their experimentation with drugs and "altered states od consciousness" expressed a deeper desire to expereience a holistic, liberating sense of awareness and a longing for family, for connection with themselves and one another. Soon realizing that pharmaceuticals provided, at best, a cheap imitation to the peaceful, inner euphoria they could get naturally from Kundalini Yoga, and at worst, had debilitating physical and mental side effects, young people began flocking to his classes, arriving by the busloads. He created a family, known as 3HO (Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization) and soon 3HO teaching centers began springing up across the United States and throughout the world.

 

He sparked a movement whose many tendrils have wound their way into our culture. Yogi Bhajan blazed a trail, whixh today, after more that 30 years of determined effort on the part of 3HO and the Kundalini Research Institute, yoga and meditation have gained widespread acceptance in the West. This popular attention speaks not only to the proven benefits of yoga and meditation, but to the increasing public interest in spirituality and a healthy lifestyle.

 

Born Harbhajan Singh is what is now Pakistan to a family of healers and communauty leaders, Yogi Bhajan studied comparative religion and Vedic philosophy in his undergraduate years, going onto receive his Masters in Economics with honors form Punjab University. Years later, he earned his Ph.D. in communications psychology from the University of Humanistic Studies in San Francisco.

 

He emerged as a religious, community and business leader with a distinguished reputation as a man of peace, world-vison, wisdom, and compassion. He has authored and published more that 30 books on topics ranging from spirituality and consciousness to communication and psychology. He has founded several foods companies that manufacture and distribute natural products based on these teachings. He has fostered economic development in every communauty in which he participates, annually conducts business seminars, and has authored several books that provide guidance to both the aspiring entrepreneur and seasoned business executive alike. As the Siri Singh Sahib, or the Sikh leader in the Western Hemisphere, he has met with Pope John Paul II to discuss inter-religious dialogue and worked side-by-side with the Dalai Lama and the Archbishop of Canterbury to foster world peace.
