3HO firmly believes in the teachings and practices of Kundalini Yoga to both transform and sustain lives and communities. In sharing these teachings and practices, 3HO is committed to operating according to the highest ethical standards and stands firmly and unequivocally with survivors of abuse everywhere.
The practices and discipline of Kundalini Yoga and the spiritual philosophy that underlies it are the focus of our organization and its moral compass. This focus is reflected in our communications, including our current website and social media channels. 3HO is committed to full transparency about our organization. Although Yogi Bhajan will no longer be the focal point of 3HO’s mission, 3HO has no desire to alter its history and Yogi Bhajan’s role as its founder.
Since 2021, we have been updating the many hundreds of pages on our website to focus on Kundalini Yoga. At the same time, we have been developing our new website, a project we began in 2019. We are now putting the finishing touches on that site. The new website will continue to focus on and share the practices of Kundalini Yoga and feature the faces and voices of the worldwide community of teachers and practitioners.
We have not turned away from the reports of harm that recently have been made. We have been working with professionals with specialties in abuse-allegation investigation, community healing, restorative justice, and other related fields, to ensure an ethical and compassionate response to all reports of harm in our community. It will continue to take time to heal, and healing will remain a focus for all of our efforts
As we turn toward the future of Kundalini Yoga, it is the worldwide community of Kundalini Yoga practitioners and teachers who will pave the way. We look forward to continuing to practice, and inviting others to practice, this very special spiritual lifestyle. We can benefit so many by sharing the technologies and possibilities that have transformed our own lives.
