AND GET A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING ABOUT THE SELF, KARMA AND CONSCIOUSNESS
“Your journey into becoming a teacher is the journey to the discovery of the Self. The more at peace you are with you, the deeper your sense of acceptance and self-love, the more impact you will have in guiding others towards the same goal. Being a teacher is not about fame, success, or money…it’s about opening the space for others to find peace and true meaning in their lives. Once you do that, everything else will follow.” - Guru Dass
"Level 1 teacher training...is for me a space of learning—the collaboration of knowledge, life and practice is a wholistic integration of student/ teacher/ class and hearted connections. Guru Dass gifts a life of lived experiences, his storytelling and ability to connect history, experience and consciousness creates an opening for the student to experience their own journey within the collective meanderings of life. ...This is a teaching, a retreat, a gathering, a respect for the nurturing of a life journey within the awareness of the sacred path we may all live... and the connections we have with people, spirit and nature".

INTERNATIONAL COLLEGE OF KUNDALINI YOGA
Programs continue in the spirit of Guru Dass with Tarn Taran Singh from New Mexico as a new lead trainer.
My dearest friend and spiritual brother, Guru Dass Singh shed his earthly body to return to his etheric home on June …. and once again, become one with the One.
His life was lived with a big heart, an inquisitive mind and an ever expanding consciousness, all of which he shared freely through his teaching and his music.
ICKY became a vehicle for Guru Dass to share his profound and ever expanding understanding of how to practice and live a spiritual life through his unique, heart centered teaching style. At the time of his passing, ICKY had established KRI Teacher Training programs in South America, Europe, Australia and Bali.
Guru Dass and also those of us who were his friends, students and colleagues, wanted and want to see those training continue in the spirit which he infused them with.
ICKY sponsored KRI Level One and Level Two programs will continue in Australia, Sweden and Bali.
The trainings will be organized and run by teams of local trainers who have worked over the years directly with Guru Dass in ICKY. And at Guru Dass’s request, I will initially take on the role of Lead Trainer in these programs so they continue in his spirit. Details for each program can be found on this website. Please note, some of the dates have had to be shifted in this period of transition.
Yogi Bhajan said that life is a vibratory frequency, and when you stop vibrating, you die. Guru Dass shed his earthly body, but his spirit is very much alive and continues to vibrate at a frequency that touches the heart and uplifts the soul. I hope to have the opportunity to share with you the incredible teachings of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, in the spirit and vibratory frequency of my dear friend and brother, Guru Dass.

Guru Dass travelled around the world, teaching and sharing his music. He trained hundreds of Kundalini Yoga teachers in courses he lead in different countries. Guru Dass was a long-time, and a highly experienced, Kundalini Yoga teacher and trainer, and one of Yogi Bhajan's, the Master of Kundalini Yoga, early students, whom he met him in 1971. He began teaching Kundalini Yoga in 1972 at the age of 18 and leading teacher trainings in 1980.
Studying Kundalini Yoga in Guru Dass spirit of teaching is more than simply a training or acquisition of knowledge. It is a process of healing, of opening the heart to self-acceptance and love. It is a transformational experience into the depths of the Self, awakening the “authentic you”. The truer you are to your self, the more authentic you are, the more effective you will be in reaching people’s hearts and minds.
Learn from Guru Dass teaching, his journey and life experience, his understanding and deep awareness. Everyone is welcome, the only requirement is to come with an open mind and the willingness to be surprised. As Guru Dass said: “Expect nothing and be ready for everything”.

BEWARE OF NON-KRI CERTIFIED KUNDALINI YOGA TEACHER TRAININGS
Becoming a trainer for a Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Program takes years if not decades of practice and study. Potential trainers must have taught over 1000 hours of Kundalini Yoga, completed a Level One and 5 Level Two Modules totaling over 500 hours of study, and have spent several years mentoring with experienced trainers. Potential new trainers are assessed by an international certification committee on their competence and maturity as teachers before being designated as associate, professional or lead trainers by KRI. On average it takes about eight years of mentoring before one is approved as a “lead” trainer.
Be aware during your search for a teacher training about who your trainers are, their qualifications and legitimacy, and what institution you will be certified by once you graduate. Too many students have been misinformed and have had to re-take their training with legitimate teachers once they discovered they were not properly trained or certified after completing their training.
Guru Dass was mentored and approved by Yogi Bhajan himself and has been training teachers since 1980. He is a KRI certified Level 1 and Level 2 trainer, with over 40 years experience. He also a member of TTEC, KRI's Teacher Training Education Council.
