The Workshop

Our minds release 1000 thoughts per wink of an eye. Some of these thoughts get lost in the unconscious, and some get stuck in the subconscious and affect the conscious mind. These thoughts become feelings, emotions, desires, multi-realities or fantasies. Instead of mastering our mind, often our mind and thoughts direct us, which can cause impulsive decisions, poor communication and self-imposed stress.

White Tantric Yoga® enables you to break through these subconscious blocks, so you can have a more enjoyable life. In the shortest time, you can experience release from a lot of the burden you carry in your mind.

When you see and act on each moment with clarity, you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your life can change. Your mind, body, and soul can act together as one. This is the path to personal freedom and awareness, and will bring more success to every area of your life.

What to Expect

White Tantric Yoga® is done in pairs as a group meditation. You sit facing a partner and follow instructions for meditation given on video by the Mahan Tantric, Yogi Bhajan.

A representative of the Mahan Tantric will be present to facilitate White Tantric Yoga®. The original facilitators were chosen personally by Yogi Bhajan from members of his staff. Since his passing the Board Members of Humanology and Health Science, Inc., which manages White Tantric Yoga®, have used the profile he created for choosing new facilitators. Currently all White Tantric Yoga® facilitators have studied personally with Yogi Bhajan. The facilitator's role is one of ensuring the methodology given by Yogi Bhajan is carried out, and helping participants maximize their experience.

Each workshop consists of between six and eight kriyas. A kriya is a meditation incorporating:

  • a yoga posture (asana)
  • a hand position (mudra)
  • a breathing technique (pranayama)
  • a mental focus and/or a mantra

 

Sometimes the kriyas are accompanied by music. These Kriyas vary in length up to sixty-two minutes. There are breaks in between each Kriya.

    The environment is peaceful, and the atmosphere is friendly, supportive, and uplifting. A vegetarian lunch is provided.

    Who can Participate

    There are no prerequisites for participating in White Tantric Yoga®. Beginners will tune into their internal energies and enjoy a deep and sometimes challenging meditative experience. More advanced meditation practitioners will deepen their experience and make new inroads to their spiritual awareness.

    How to Prepare and What to Bring*

    • Come to the workshop ready to meditate, having done some yoga or stretching exercises.
    • Wear loose, comfortable, white clothing. White combines all the colors and enhances your magnetic field and auric strength.
    • Wear a white cotton head covering which FULLY covers the head and will stay on securely during the kriyas.
    • Please bring a blanket or sheepskin to sit on and a light blanket to cover yourself with during relaxation periods.
    • White Tantric Yoga® is a cleansing process. Water will be provided during the day or you may bring your own.

     

    *Please note and be mindful that the White Tantric Yoga® space between the lines is limited and nothing but essential items as listed above should be brought into the space in a very consolidated fashion. Please leave valuables at home. Photography and videography or use of any kind of recording device is prohibited at White Tantric Yoga®. Cameras are not allowed at the workshops and cell phones should be turned off.

    The moment you feel you are part of Infinity and that Infinity is a part of you, your limitations will cease and happiness will flow.
    — Yogi Bhajan

    Envision the energy of the universe as both parallel and perpendicular in nature, like a cloth woven together. As a cloth becomes stronger when it is stretched on the diagonal, so the White Tantric Yoga® diagonal, or ‘Z’ energy is stronger. This energy, when directed by the Mahan Tantric, cuts through the blocks that are stuck in the subconscious mind.

    Using the diagonal energy, the Mahan Tantric Yogi Bhajan, connects his subtle body to the subtle bodies of the participants through the course facilitator. This works the same way as a worldwide telephone system that relies on satellites and electromagnetic energy in order to connect two parties.

    White Tantric Yoga® should not be confused with black or red tantric. Those forms of yoga also transform energy, but in a different way and for different purposes. Black tantric directs the energy to manipulate another human being and red tantric directs the energy solely for sexual purposes.

    “What matters in life is that your projection carries your personality, character and spirit with a precision and penetration.”
    — Yogi Bhajan

    Yogi Bhajan became Master of Kundalini Yoga® at the age of 16 in his native India. He came to the West in 1968. The authority to be the Mahan Tantric, Master of White Tantric Yoga®, was bestowed on him in 1970.

    The practice of White Tantric Yoga®, as with most sacred Eastern wisdom, had previously been a tradition passed on from teacher to student in a mystical and selective way. As a pioneer of the Aquarian Age, Yogi Bhajan decided to open the experience of White Tantric Yoga® to anyone who wanted to commit to the discipline. In 1970 in Los Angeles, for the first time in history, White Tantric Yoga®was taught publicly.

    Until 1986, Yogi Bhajan traveled throughout the world presenting as many as thirty workshops each year to thousands of students. In 1987, using his unique abilities as Master, together with modern technology, he began to present White Tantric Yoga®as a video-taped series. He said the videos would continue to have the same effect when he was no longer in his physical body. This has proven true, and in fact since his passing from his physical body in October, 2004, thousands of students have confirmed that their Tantric experience is one of being in his presence.
