Our lifestyles are often counterproductive to emotional health and wellbeing. Information overload, demanding jobs, family responsibilities, financial obligations, and being disconnected from the people in our lives makes it difficult, if not impossible, to experience real happiness. So many people today are suffering from depression, and its impacts can be devastating.
Depression manifests in a lot of different ways, and often feels like: sadness, loneliness, anxiety, grief, fatigue, brain fog, memory loss, procrastination, loss of interest, and feelings of hopelessness.
Perhaps you can relate to these feelings. Perhaps you have turned to some self-defeating habits in an effort to comfort yourself. These only serve to perpetuate the cycle of depression because you don’t know of any other way to begin feeling better. There IS a way to start feeling better that does not involve harmful self-medicating habits such as alcohol, tobacco, food, drugs, or other detrimental ways of self-comforting. But first, we need to understand the root cause of depression.

His teachings grew from an esoteric curiosity inspired by his family’s deep connection to the masters of India and the blessings of being ready when teachers appeared.
Paramahansa Yogananda was his first teacher. Guru Singh’s great-aunt met Yogananda in Calcutta in 1916 and travelled with him from India to America in 1919. She studied with and served him until his passing in 1952.

From that moment on Guru Singh has been studying and teaching Kundalini yoga and meditation, a science taught in India for over five thousand years. He has spread this ancient science with passion and a practical fusion of Eastern mysticism into Western pragmatism.
