Summer Solstice: An Excellent Use of Your Time
By the grace of God I was led to the doorstep of my teacher, Guru Prem Singh Khalsa, some 9 years ago. He turned me on to Kundalini Yoga and through the light of his consciousness, my body healed, my mind grew calmer and I learned how to move better through time and space. Some time later, I started to hear about this thing called Summer Solstice and a powerful form of meditation called White Tantric Yoga. During our next meeting I asked, “Guru Prem, do you think it would be a good use of my time to go to Summer Solstice?” He looked into my eyes and answered plainly, “Yes, Tommy, I think that would be an excellent use of your time!”
Summer Solstice is a unique experience. It is the most fun and powerfully transformative adult spiritual summer camp one can imagine. Each morning presents the opportunity for a full-blown Sadhana and musical concert from 3:30-6:00am together with well over a thousand people. The gatherings and epic moments continue throughout the day and well into each night. The community, support and love is tangible. One feels literally held by the land, the people and the teachings. And then of course, you have 3 days of White Tantric Yoga. I will describe my experience to you like this: White Tantric Yoga was the shower for my sub-conscious that my soul had been wanting me to take for my entire life. It is a game-changer at every level and I believe that it must be experienced first-hand to understand it. It literally changed the way I think and react to life.
This year will be my 7th Summer Solstice and I am humbled to share a workshop called “Let The Sunshine Out.”
The Aquarian Age is upon us and the big shift is on. It is so exciting to live in a time that has been anticipated for so long. We have to realize what we are and live from the light of that Truth so that we can uplift all those we come into contact with and create the world we dream of. We can no longer look for God outside of ourselves. We have to experience God within us in every moment and let that sunshine out into the world. Please come join me on this journey into our Truth.
