Independent Investigation Findings
Dear Members of the 3HO Community,
In March of this year, an independent investigation was initiated into allegations of sexual misconduct by Yogi Bhajan. This investigation was conducted by a neutral, third-party organization called An Olive Branch, and was not managed or influenced by any of the organizations founded by Yogi Bhajan. The sole purpose of the investigation was to seek the truth. Read more here.
In the wake of the heartache and hardship that’s challenged our community as of late, 3HO is hosting a Listening Tour, with a series of calls to facilitate brave spaces for community dialogue, emotional processing, and sharing. As we begin to envision the future of Kundalini Yoga, we call upon the wisdom of the global sangat to heal as we process together and initiate this change.
Please visit www.3HO.org/listening-tour to participate and for more details.
Social Justice Resources
We Must Do Better
As a predominantly white organization, 3HO acknowledges the culture of white privilege and implicit bias that has existed within our community. We are now doing the deep work necessary to change—to raise awareness and educate ourselves and our 3HO community in support of anti-racism and social justice. Our hope is that by sharing these resources, we can help to inspire our spiritual community to join us as we work towards a world of true equality, equity and justice for all. https://www.3ho.org/anti-racism
This summer, we could not host Summer Solstice in person because of the Covid-19 pandemic. To bring you the classes you want with the teachers you love, we took Summer Solstice online in a 3 day e-summit.
Some of the finest teachers of Kundalini Yoga, recipes to enjoy the Solstice Diet at home, break out groups, and chat rooms for conversation and community were enjoyed.
Check back in July for some of the recorded classes >> https://www.esolsticeregistration.com/
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update:
Our hearts go out to each of you at this time of great upheaval and challenge. We're sending you our wishes for health for yourself, all your loved ones, your communities and the world.
In response to the very real public health challenge of COVID-19, we have decided to cancel all our in-person Summer 2020 events: Summer Solstice Sadhana, International Women's Camp, and Khalsa Youth Camp.
We will be providing full refunds and we ask for your patience with the process given the numbers of registrations we need to refund. Cancelling these events will have a large financial impact on our organization. We also ask that if you would like to support 3HO financially during this challenging time, you can choose to "pay it forward" and your registration fee will be credited towards Winter Solstice 2020, a future 3HO event, or a donation to help 3HO in this time of financial challenge.
You can process your cancellations here.
We look forward to supporting you online with Kundalini Yoga,
The 3HO Foundation Team

There have been allegations concerning sexual misconduct by Yogi Bhajan. The Collaborate Response Team (CRT) was recently formed by the SSS Corporation to follow the best practices for organizations receiving such allegations. This involves respecting and listening to reporters of harm, witnesses, and those who refute them. As a result, the CRT has hired An Olive Branch to investigate the allegations. Additionally, the CRT has developed a program to provide counseling for those who report harm. Information can be found at www.ssscresponseteam.org and on the FAQ page.
