Every September since 2000, inspired students from across the globe have made an investment in their spiritual growth by participating in a small group tele-course, Journey into the Heart of Sikh Dharma. For many, this course ties together the essential spirit of Sikhism and its many facets. What makes this experience so unique and rewarding is that it promotes authentic expression, deep self-reflection and creates a true sense of community within each group of students.
Mata Mandir Kaur Khalsa has been a minister of Sikh Dharma since 1984 and is a Certified Teacher of Kundalini Yoga. She is a professionally trained pastoral counselor and knows how to create safety and connection in a group. Her compassion, wisdom and playful style remind us of the deep and loving connections that are possible on our own unique path of spiritual evolution. Her “heartfull” presence fosters an environment that welcomes all questions, viewpoints and experiences. Her knowledge and deep love of Sikh Dharma serve to inform and inspire her students. Mata Mandir is passionately committed to facilitating connection and spiritual growth, both in the class and in her life. She lives in Herndon, VA, and enjoys the blessings of her 25 year marriage to GuruGanesha Singh, her children, Saraswati Kaur and Akal Sahai Singh, and her 3 adorable granddaughters. Her great joys are playing and listening to kirtan, walking in nature and swimming in the ocean. Working with Mata Mandir is a journey of self-discovery and transformation.
