Dharam Singh MA

dharam singh ma.jpg

Dharam Singh brings a unique and earthy perspective to the Kundalini Yoga community that is inspired by broad exposure to Native American Shamanism, Tibetan Buddhism and Reichian Body-centered Therapy.

Dharam Singh hails from NYC, where, as a child in the 60′s one could hear, on any given summer night, the rich rhythms and chants of Africa brought by immigrants from Cuba and the Caribbean blending with the sounds of Motown, R&B, and Jazz.

He witnessed the role music and dance could serve, not only as a form of expression, but as a pressure relief valve for tensions. He spent 10 years doing radio with NPR in Fairbanks, AK, further expanding his knowledge and experience of an extremely wide range of music from many different cultures.

Now, his passion for the transformative power of sound and music has found a place in the use of the Gong as a tool for deep healing. He has "gleaned" a great deal from, and studied with Richard Hite, Iasos, Yogi Bhajan, Ed Mann and Michael Bettine.

Having walked the path of Sikh Dharma, with Yogi Bhajan, for more than 30 years he has come to more fully understand that sound and energy is the essence of the order of everything and that people can find peace and wellness simply through laying down, relaxing and listening.
