Introduction to Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan
We will do a set that Yogi Bhajan gave called Awakening to Your Ten Bodies. For the most part human beings identify with their physical body, and think of themselves in physical terms-or perhaps at best, as a physical body and a mind. The truth is that the human being is madeup of ten bodies: the physical body, three mental bodies, and six energy bodies. The set includes a Laya Yoga meditation, and we will also have a deep relaxation with the Gong. ~Sat Nam~ Hari Jap
Any obstacle contains a safe passage through, for those who actively seek its disclosure.And it was an obstacle that presented itself in the form of a spinal disability at a young age for Hari Jap; though this turn of events may have stymied some, it only fueled his drive to overcome his adversity and forge his own safe passage to live a righteous life.
His spiritual journey began in the form of Karate, Shotokan and Kung Fu to be specific. Additionally, he studied Shito-ryu under Rudy Crosswell which gradually inspired him to choose a path in a discipline which trains not only the body, but the mind and spirit as well.
From there he turned to 3HO, where he studied Kundalini Yoga as it was taught by Yogi Bhajan; a practice which he has maintained and integrated as a core aspect of his life for more than 32 years, the past 10 of which he has been a certified Yoga Teacher Trainer.
Hari Jap has taught at every level, from the first timers to the best of the best; while, at the same time, expanding his knowledge through various related avenues. Some noteworthy accolades he has acquired include: a period studying Sat Nam Rasayan (healing through deep contemplative awareness) with Guru Dev Singh Khalsa, he has studied Usui Reiki Ryoho with Ginny Mackles and Advanced Gong Technics with Gong Master Don Conreaux. He underwent Shamanic Training with The Deer Tribe, has studied Tantra with Shantam Nityama and Sunyata Saraswati, and Taoist Chi Kung with Master Ni and Mantak Chia.
Finally, in 2003, Hari Jap founded the Center for Divine Awakening as a sacred space for a multitude of teachers to impart their wisdom and share their truth.
It is impossible to sum up a life’s dedication and perseverance to a path merely by citing one’s achievements, but the passion that Hari Jap displays for his truth shines irrefutably when he teaches; and to those students that have learned from him in the past, it is clear. And all the words I write mean nothing, compared to what he will show you himself.-Connor Meyers
