Surgeon's General Warning: Do NOT read until taking your high blood pressure medicine and reading my opening remarks...
This is NOT about whether or not to get vaccinated. It IS about the fact that it's being MANDATED. I understand enough about human psychology to realize that just having FEAR about something that MIGHT happen already changes our body's chemistry. Science demonstrates it...and so do our spiritual guides...we THINK a lot of our reality into existence...THINK about the implications...
Please understand from the outset
...and on consenting adults...
After meeting G-d on the mountain, Moses hid his shining face....
Keeping it LIGHT...so I don't take myself and others too seriously...
...But the wisdom teachers in all traditions invite us to approach our Source NAKED - without obstacles...and participate with full INTIMACY...
As a 30+ year Sunday school teacher, crafts were a favorite part of our lessons. Likely, because my Dad was a hands-on guy - could fix anything - and this likely influenced my choice of a career "playing with cars" - as friend Steve B used to say.
OK, Students: Enough talk...before reading on, print out this next image, grab your favourite (I dig the Brits) coloring instruments and LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE!!!
and for extra credit...you can write a report on a very funny Cheech and Chong video skit I will send you on demand. Uhh, No, you're NOT allowed to write it on rolling paper...
And now, lets add to our hands-on some "feet-on"...and get up and move our boogies...

A few year's ago I enjoyed an evening on the North Shore with this next band's mindful and fun tunes. Their "head" guru is Guru Singh, who happens to practice the same yoga form that I do: KUNDALINI.
"In the light of my soul, I am happy and whole..."
Link to this podcast...and this opening "track":
Imagine a modern-day rock star Gandalf dropping mad guitar licks between pearls of timeless wisdom that beautifully fuse of Eastern mysticism with Western pragmatism and you start to get the picture.
Named “Best Guru in LA” by Los Angeles magazine, for the last 40 years Guru Singh has been studying and teaching Kundalini Yoga – a 5,000 year old ancient science and school of yoga focused on awakening the primal energy known as shakti for the purpose of spiritual enlightenment. He is the author of several books (enumerated below) and a powerful lecturer uplifting thousands worldwide. An extraordinary teacher, he also serves as a behind-the-scenes guide to many a luminary, including Fortune 500 CEOs, athletes, artists and even Tony Robbins.
A peer of rock legends like Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and the Grateful Dead, Guru Singh is also a supremely talented musician who began his recording career on Warner Bros’ Sire label in the 1960s. When he isn’t recording tracks with people like Seal, he’s bringing down the house on the daily at Yoga West, his Los Angeles home base.
Simply put, Guru Singh is one of the coolest people I have ever met — a huge, beautiful consciousness I’m proud to call friend.
It’s an honor to share his story and wisdom with you today...
There is a thread that runs through GuruGanesha’s music that pulls you towards the raw and beautiful pulse of life. He opens up the warm spaces of his heart, sharing the fragility of life, love and the search for meaning. At 70, he has accessed a new deepness to his voice and a more subtle lyricism to his guitar playing. Influenced by the music of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton, his life of spiritual exploration adds a depth to his songs that transcends genre. GuruGanesha creates music that carries a profound wisdom that only comes with the experience of facing our shadows with love and acceptance.
As the founder of Spirit Voyage Records, GuruGanesha helped launch the careers of many of sacred world music’s singers including Snatam Kaur, Jai-Jagdeesh, Mirabai Ceiba, Nirinjan Kaur and more. His deep love of music inspired him to create a record label devoted to sharing music that can heal and transform people. His own music carries that heartfelt intention, and this new single is sure to open hearts and create a sense of connection in these unprecedented times.
A Hundred Blessings - Mirabai Ceiba (part of the lovingkindness label - Spirit Voyage -started by Guru Singh)
"I must stop this talk now and let love speak from its nest of silence..."
A Hundred Blessings - Rumi
When Love comes suddenly and taps
on your window,
run and let it in,
shut the door of your reason,
even the smallest hint
chases love away,
like smoke that drowns
the freshness of
the morning breeze.
To reason, Love can only say
this way is barred,
you can't pass through,
but to the lover
it offers a hundred blessings.
Before the mind decides
to take a step,
Love has reached
the seventh heaven.
Love has climbed
the Holy Mountain.
Love has reached
the seventh heaven.
Love has climbed
the Holy Mountain.
I must stop this talk now
and let Love speak
from its nest of silence.
