The 3M’s: Movement, Mindful Awareness, Meditation

5-10 minute video recordings of a yoga movement, meditation, visualization or mantra for cancer survivors to use throughout the week.

I was immersed in the practices of kundalini yoga for the past 25 years (since 1998) and this is what I have primarily taught in my Yoga and Talk Therapy groups and JoyBoots classes.The combination of sound (mantra and music) with the rhythmic movement practices and breathwork have been deeply healing for me and for my students.

I will continue to share what I call the 3 Ms-Movement, Mindful Awareness, and Meditations that have been healing for me and others, especially over the past 12 years that I have worked with cancer survivors. I continue to add to my tool kit from many other traditions and to be open to lifelong learning and discerning.

However, I want to make it clear that I stand with and support the women and men who have come forward to bravely discuss, process, and heal from exploitive manipulation and terrible sexual abuse they suffered from Yogi Bhajan and other lead teachers in 3HO who emulated him. Adult children (aka the Second Generation) have also shared the traumatic effects of being separated from parents at very young ages, to attend boarding school in India where many were neglected or abused.

In the interest of justice and accountability, It’s my belief that any remaining funds owned by any of the kundalini yoga or Sikh Dharma community companies such as Yogi Tea, AKAL Security, 3HO, SSSC, KRI and properties should be liquidated and dispersed among the second generation and the women and men most adversely affected.
