Kundalini Gong Rebirthing Intensive
Sunday 12-3:00pm October 28
Yogi Bhajan taught a series of powerful rebirthing yoga classes to clear the subconscious mind of past pain, hidden memories, and old emotional patterns that compromise our happiness and sabotage our success. These classes are some of the most transformational practices in Kundalini Yoga and were taught with the extended playing of the Gong by Yogi Bhajan.
When these rebirthing classes are experienced with the therapeutic playing of the Gong, you are able to transcend and clear the past pains of life and birth, and become reborn into your original Self.
Now you can experience these powerful classes as originally taught by Yogi Bhajan and facilitated by Guru Karam with the accompanying transformational sound of the Gong played by Mehtab, the originator of Gong Yoga and Gong Therapy.
