We read the response and selected Bir Kaur to attend Solistice and Jai Satya Kaur (Vani) to attend Women's Camp this year in New Mexico. Wahe Guru! Here is what they wrote:
Experiencing Summer Solstice this year is a celebration of my Saturn return (June 21) and fully embracing my power as a woman, healer, and leader in the community. It will give me strength to shine my Light unapologetically. It will help me let go of false belief systems that have made me hesitant to be awesome. I feel that when I am in this place of remembrance, than I am a mirror to encourage others to do the same. This will be a great place of preparation for my teacher training this fall, continuing to strengthen my leadership skills, and networking to help the continuing growth of KYPDX.
To feel the grace and joy of being one with other women - to embrace the shakti energy and bring it back to all my sangha and students - I have longed to go to women's camp since I heard about it and how Yogi Bhajan felt it was very important for women to attend. I am 62 and entering the wise stage of life: often I am approached by my family or yoga students for advice and knowledge. I feel blessed at this stage of my life, and being able to get even more strength, knowledge and auric strengthening from the camp experience would be a sheer blessing and joy! Sat Nam
