Today’s guest is Guruatma Khalsa, now Laurel, has been in 3HO since 1978 until 2020. A native Chicago girl, just stepped into her 69th year, 43 of which were totally immersed in the 3HO/Sikh Dharma Community.
She attended her first KY class in Madison, Wisconsin in 1978 and received her spiritual name in March of '79. For a short while she lived in the Des Moines, Iowa country ashram where she met her future (first) husband. They attended Summer Solstice together and she was invited to come live in Houston TX to be in charge of the Children's Program ...because they heard, "she's good with children".
In 1984 Laurel married SatKartar Singh and they’ve been together now for 37 years. Her life-long challenge with a serious, rare and relapsing autoimmune disease, ended up leading her to specializing in yoga modifications and Chair Yoga for Seniors as well as to physically/mentally-challenged people at the City of Houston Adaptive Recreation Center.
In May of 2020, while in the throws of launching her newly-renovated website yogictools.com and self-published book, "Stop & Feel it - One woman's extraordinary path of healing", she was shattered awake to the real truth of the horrible abuses of YB.
After participating in the “Listening calls”, reading the AOB report in August 2020, as well as the last year of processing and reflection. Shes’s been blown wide open to the real truth.
She’s since halted all business sales and teaching and she’s attempting to reconcile the mess of it all the best she can.
She’s since renounced her connection with 3HO and Sikh Dharma and relinquished her Minister license as well.
