Guru Rattana

"Guru Rattana, Thank you for your encouragement. I am deeply grateful for the strong, clear spirit with which you sustain and invigorate us all. Your thoroughly sane and intelligent approach to spiritual practice and life in general is truly uplifting. It is a great tribute to Yogiji that he has spawned a generation of self-motivated, God-centered spiritual practitioners, such as you, who have benefited so much from his teachings that they are able to stand in their own strong and clear consciousnesses and serve as beacons of truth and light to new generations of seekers." - Steve

Through extensive travel, education, teaching and her own inner journey, Guru Rattana has consciously prepared for this moment in history. Since the age of twenty-six she has followed a committed spiritual path. She studied Hatha yoga for 8 years, trained with Yogi Bhajan for 26 years, and has studied tai chi, kung fu and chi gong.

After college she studied French in Paris for one year. The following year she spent in Italy, taking the first year of her MA from Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. After completing her MA. in Washington, D.C., she spent the next six years in Geneva, Switzerland, where she earned her Doctorate in Political Science from the Graduate Institute of International Studies (University of Geneva). Her thesis was the first study on international environmental co-operation. While in Geneva, she worked for the United Nations Environment Program.

Following receipt of her Doctorate, she pursued an academic career. She has taught International Environment and Development Studies at Dartmouth College, MIT, and New Hampshire College. In 1985 she moved to San Diego where she taught Philosophies of Life and History at the U.S. International University.

She lived to Palo Alto between 1994-1998. There she was invited to teach two Kundalini yoga and meditation courses: Your Life Is In Your Chakras and Balancing Male-Female Polarities at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology. She was also invited to teach Kundalini Yoga at Stanford University as part of the Health Improvement Program. Guru Rattana has taught at the Khalsa Woman's Training Camp and the 3HO Summer Solstice Celebration in New Mexico. She has lived and taught in San Diego since 1999.

Women of the World - Dedicated to the Upliftment and Empowerment of Women Everywhere.

Curiosity about life lead Guru Rattana to astrology. She was interested in finding out more about herself and how best to live her life. She explains: "Astrology provides a system and symbols that opens up intuitive knowing. With only a small amount of understanding, the symbols graciously reveal more and more insight into oneself, others and the universe. It is like tapping into the mother lode and having cosmic knowledge endlessly spew forth. The unknown becomes known."

She finds the cosmic connection exhilarating: "I find the practical application of knowing who I am dealing with and what to expect a relief. There is not so much guess work in relationships. I am less judgmental and have a tool to help others and myself. Astrology helped me take off my blinders and expand my world."

Guru Rattana is author of four of the original Kundalini yoga and meditation manuals. These are still reckoned to be among the best available, and are distributed all over the world: Transitions to a Heart-Centered World, Relax and Renew, Sexuality and Spirituality, and Introduction to Kundalini Yoga, Volume 1. She is also author of Your Life is in Your Chakras from which she has taught workshops that are ready to be made into videos.

She wrote Inner and Outer Ecology: Transitions to a Sustainable Worldview for the Earth Summit.
Her groundbreaking book - The Destiny of Women Is the Destiny of the World- has sold over 1000 copies by word of mouth in its self-published version. Between 1993 and 1998 Guru Rattana wrote over 500 essay-poems that make up over 25 books that are waiting to be shared with the world.
The Destiny of Women
Guru Rattana has given hundreds of workshops and classes on personal empowerment, featuring Kundalini yoga and meditation, which she has carefully prepared for videos and audio cassette production. (She rarely teaches the same subject twice.) Her unique presentation incorporates her writings, a profound understanding of spiritual principles and human growth, and the transmutation of emotional energy into higher awareness. Each class is a milestone in consciousness.

Her life is devoted to experiencing higher meaning, feeling more and more alive and establishing a spiritual connection with her Soul and God. In turn she is able to help others experience their own spiritual upliftment and connection.

As a pioneering teacher, she uniquely synthesizes the basic techniques from the science of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation and incorporates principles from her practice of the internal martial arts - Tai Chi and Chi Gong. Her approach is to "market for results." She shares her profound knowledge on a wide range of topics including-Living on the Creative Edge, Soul Consciousness, the Art and Science of a Successful Woman, Inner Beauty and Radiance, Tantric Sexuality, From Co-dependence to Co-creation, Rejuvenation through Redirecting Stress, Releasing Addictions by Going for God.

Guru Rattana believes higher consciousness is a requirement to find solutions to all world problems. As we change our consciousness and become personally empowered, we transform the world. Her life is devoted to helping people move beyond hope and belief to the EXPERIENCE of the ecstasy of Self and the Divine in all life and to make their unique contribution to the world.
