Looking my studio window this morning I can see Joshua Bushes, spiky cholla cactus, and yucca shrubs lit up in golden white spikes within the penetrating first gentle of day. As a third era 3HO Kundalini Yogi who grew up in Española, New Mexico… the desert is acquainted territory to me. Nevertheless, there’s one thing completely different about being right here on this place… in Joshua Tree, that opens me up wider; that asks me to look nearer at my life, at what I would like, at who I’m. Although these solutions proceed to unfold, I can really feel a firmer grasp now on the threads of those timeless questions and am slowly weaving them into the patterns that make an image of a life that is really and authentically ME.
I arrived on this desert when Saturn “returned’. This meant saying goodbye to 1 cycle of my life and embracing (with nice reduction!) a brand new one.
You’ll have heard this time period Saturn Return floating about and puzzled what the hell that is… Nicely, it wasn’t till a studying with an astrologer that I grew to become conscious of what Saturn Return was and in addition what I used to be about to undergo.
Saturn Return is a window the place the planet Saturn makes its means into the identical place relative to the Solar because it was if you have been born, an orbit that takes roughly 27-29 years. Throughout that 2 yr interval the place Saturn swings closest to this start place, a time of big change, stress and problem is usually felt. Saturn is known as “The Trainer”. It is recognized for instructing us by problem and confrontation, which,, if we embrace this problem, can rocket us ahead by leaps and bounds. Yogi Bhajan, the truth is, usually referred to himself as a “Saturn Trainer” versus a “Jupiter Trainer”, explaining:
“The planet Saturn is the one planet with rings. The rings present limitation and constriction. The Saturn instructor is all about self-discipline. He focuses on at all times doing the surprising and he “carries a stick” so he can immediately “whack” any pupil who will get out of line. His function is to present the self-discipline and the bounds. It is by limitation that we collect our energy and turn into potent and highly effective.
The planet Jupiter is massive, expansive, and filled with knowledge and blessings. The Jupiter instructor acknowledges each pupil’s radiance and at all times blesses and expands everybody. The Jupiter instructor is a fountain of happiness, enthusiasm, love, and pleasure.”

Saturn, the Trainer, was instructing me some onerous classes, forcing me to take a look at issues I didn’t need to see, didn’t need to change. However figuring out that I used to be going by this for a cause, that this time of tumultuous change was “regular”, did assist!
After my different band (electronica/mantra duo FEATHERandDOT) made The Lost Kriya video with Guru Singh a number of years in the past, I assumed… “I ponder if Guru Singh additionally is aware of a couple of Saturn Return Kundalini Yoga set?!” I reached out to him in regards to the thought and… positive sufficient… they do exist!! Yogi Bhajan taught these units to his college students within the 1970s, the early adopters of the teachings who have been at the moment going by their very own Saturn Returns. Guru Singh most graciously agreed to show this set for our movie crew and it’s now accessible to all for FREE on my web site as a part of the Saturn Return Survival Toolkit with different info and sources that I’ve discovered to assist anybody going by it themselves.
Saturn Return is a time of rebirthing that may occur two or thrice in life (27-30, 57-60, 87-90). For any of my brothers & sisters on the market going by it, I hope that this providing can serve you to embrace the problem and slingshot out of this era to better heights and deeper connection to your divine self. These instruments are right here for a cause and I’m so blissful to assist collect and share them together with this album which is a form of street companion for the journey!
