Listen to heartfelt and heart wrenching stories of real people from the "early days" , those born and raised into it, and those converted or influenced by the “Teachings” in the last 50 years of “light-washing” the truth.
The unspoken truths, the hidden and not-so-hidden abuses that have been normalized, infused and interwoven into the consciousness and overall ethos of the Healthy, Happy, Holy Community known as 3HO/Kundalini Yoga/Sikh Dharma International.
1. To break the veil of silence that has long permeated and continues to strangle the 3HO Kundalini Yoga community in the name of “neutrality”
2. To validate and help clarify the complex feelings of those who joined this lifestyle, were born and raised into it, and/or have practiced or taught Kundalini Yoga
3. To encourage actively listening to uncomfortable conversations from our community, as a revolutionary act of self & collective healing
4. To let survivors know that we see them, we believe them, we love them, and we will fight for their truth to be addressed
5. To let Teachers who are denying, gaslighting, or spiritually bypassing know that what they are doing is willfully ignorant and re-traumatizing victims
6. To illuminate the inherent racism, homophobia, cultural misappropriation and exploitation that perpetuates “The Teachings”, 3HO lifestyle and overall community ethos
7. To stop the perpetuation of gaslighting & victim shaming by naming it for what it is
8. To dismantle internalized shame, guilt, toxic positivity, and “light-washing” mentality
9. To honor all the parts of ourselves that have been forgotten or silenced
10. To honor every BODY that has come through our community, named and unnamed
11. To encourage people to do their own research, process their own emotions, get somatic therapy and other support as needed, draw your own conclusions, and be critical thinkers, rather than just blindly follow anyone
