Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training

TRANSFORMATION

In conjunction with your Level One KRI Certification, this 300-hour (over a minimum of 2 years) certification program consists of five 62-hour modules and fulfills the Yoga Alliance 500-hour requirement.

About Level Two Program

In KRI’s 200-hr Level One Teacher Training, you learn the basics. You learn the fundamentals about Kundalini Yoga, and hopefully develop lifelong, positive habits of personal practice. In Level Two you acknowledge on a heart level that you are ready to integrate the teachings even more into your life.

Reaching this next level means assessing where you are in your commitment to authenticity, and offering yourself up to transformation.

Throughout your Level Two Journey (which will last a minimum of two years to complete all 5 Level Two modules), you will participate in programs focused on five interconnected themes. Before, after, and during each module, you will connect with your global course community to refine your ability to reflect, to be aware, and to be consciously conscious of what you are learning.

Level Two Modules

Level Two Module Description and Information

Mind and Meditation

Deepen your practice of meditation, clarify the relationship between you and your mind, and explore the basic nature and dynamics of the mind. Our relationship to our own mind is pivotal in effectively realizing our true nature and fulfilling our potential. Yogi Bhajan often reminded us that we come to Earth to experience our humanity and recognize the One Infinite being that creates all and which is in all. The greatest power is the ability to act with a Neutral Mind, to use intuition along with applied intelligence and to lean on the Infinite through the sacred science known as prayer.

Key Topics

  • Enhance the depth of your understanding of meditation and experience deep meditations on the nine aspects of the mind.
  • Focus on your relationship to your own mind.
  • Increase your ability to observe neutrally, to become still, to clear your mind of distractions and intrigues, to recognize when you establish a state of shuniya, and to recognize the different functional parts of your mind.
  • Experience and practice the use of intuition as a primary skill of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation.
  • Learn the structure of the mind and examine the impersonal minds, the qualities of the mind, and the nine aspects of the mind.
  • Understand how to use the 27 projections of the mind.

Be able to use the functional minds with fluency, understand the influence of the impersonal minds, cultivate shuniya and apply intuition and intelligence with ease and flexibility. Understand Nanak’s pauri, Man Jeetai Jag Jeet. Conquer your mind and conquer the world. Come into a relationship with your mind and the Self which transcends time and space and relates to the oneness of your identity with Infinity. Become one with the One.

Course Affirmation

I commit to refine my meditative capacity. I invite my mind into my conscious presence, investigate its nature, and learn to master it so that it serves my consciousness and my soul. I will follow the road map laid out by Yogi Bhajan to recognize and develop the many parts of my mind. I integrate and apply the functional minds to my daily habits and behaviors so that I develop a clear, intuitive, and effective mind. To conquer my mind is to cultivate a relationship to its actions and an awareness of its functional parts. I form a relationship to my own awareness, self, mind and Infinite being. My life blossoms with unlimited blessings.

Conscious Communication

What do we mean by communication? The definition of communication is a practice that creates a “common notion” with another person or object of attention…At what level do we communicate? Did you ever learn that your existence is your communication? Your projection is your relationship? You are the power? But life is often sour. There is no happiness, because your communication has no purpose of Self. You communicate to impress someone. You don’t communicate to relate you to someone. That’s why you suffer now. You don’t communicate consciously. —Yogi Bhajan

Key Topics

  • Recognize and contrast conscious communication with other types of communication
  • The role of silence and shuniya in communication
  • The art of deep listening—sunni-ai
  • Mastering the Fifth Chakra
  • Recognizing your shadow and overcoming your blocks through applied consciousness
  • Communicating with the Infinite and the nature of prayer

Use your communication skills to create a common notion with others—even those you disagree with. Communicate your whole Self, with awareness, kindness and fearlessness. Listen—don’t just hear. Elevate your communication to the power of creative dialogue so that life becomes a flow, in harmony with the Infinite.

Course Affirmation:

I have integrated conscious communication into all areas of my life. My communication uplifts others to their own consciousness.
I represent my whole self directly. I speak each word consciously, understanding that it is witnessed by my own consciousness and supported by the Cosmos. I create harmonious communication even with those who oppose me. I am heard in the hearts of others as I hear and qualify my own words as I speak.
