My Yin teacher, Aradhana Kaur, comes from a Kundalini background. Kundalini yoga is associated with the Sikh heritage, and thus, khalsa, or community, also known as sangha, is an important part of the practice.
I remember Aradhana making tea and bringing in goodies when we were students, or inviting us to her home for Kundalini classes followed by lunches. Often potlucks, we would have a few moments to interact with our fellow spiritual seekers on a more personal level, and read more into their energies through this. We’d also learn about what others are doing and make connection that way.
This weekend we had a yoga sangha for breakfast at my place. The morning was filled with warmth and love. I provided tea and cookies, and others brought fruits, crackers, and even idlis, a South Indian rice cake used for breakfast.
We also had ample time for a mini- toe reading session, and gifts of Love, Comopassion, and Forgiveness cards (from Fetzer Institute).
And we enjoyed each other’s company in a simply delightful way!
