To bring survivor-based info
in a digestible format
It is impossible to keep track
of all the stories that have come to light.
The Uncomfortable Conversations° hosted by GuruNischan
are extremely rich and interesting but require a significant amount of time to listen to and appreciate in full.
Most of us don't have this time as our lives are too busy.
This site seeks to present essential information and examples of key themes and experiences in bite-size format.
To say no to the culture of silencing
For far too long
attempts to question and address the rumours
related to abuse and misconduct
have not been welcomed by the Kundalini Yoga community.
Silence has been the standard response.
That time is over. Thankfully.
No-one is superior, no-one is inferior.
Yogi Bhajan said on many occasions that he wanted his students
to become ten times greater than him.
He himself knew that that was not such a big challenge.
He even pointed that out to us but for some reason
we did not take him seriously.
(link to a quote in which he talks about his weaknesses)
Now that we know more about the abuse and misconduct
that he was involved in,
it becomes obvious that the challenge
to become ten times greater than him is much easier
than what we thought in those days
when for most of us reality was still hidden.
Yogi Bhajan was not a saint. He was a human being.
Be aware that these are only fragments of the truth.
Many more stories are out there, told and untold.
Telling these stories is needed. It is a prerequisite for justice and reconciliation.

survivors who's stories
are mentioned on this site.
