“When we’re distracted and not in tune with our authentic selves we don’t hear sound and magic around us. Let’s come back home and remember there’s this beautiful side of you.”
This weeks guest is a complete treasure who is spreading the light of oneness through the medicine of Naad or sound. It’s my delight to introduce Gurnimit Singh is a 3rd generation kirtan singer from Chandigarh India who determined to share his lineage teachings and help practitioners evolve into their authentic selves through Bhakti Yog.
Gurnimit began his intense study of tabla, vocals, harmonium and kirtan at the age of 8. Gurnimit immense talent was previously celebrated worldwide within the Sikh community before being publicly outed as queer. As a south asian LGBTQI, Gurnimit inspires others with his profound and accessible wisdom cultivated after healing his own trauma and reconciling his past of abuse. He now offers his students and community the many traditional practices that he’s not only mastered but lives daily. He’s the real deal. Gurnimits story, brilliance and joy is filled with spiritual insight that anyone on any path can learn from.
