Har-Prakash Khalsa has been teaching Kundalini Yoga and meditation since 1985. Beginning as a student of Zen meditation, Har-Prakash went on to become a certified Kundalini Yoga instructor (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) and teacher of Mindfulness meditation in the algorithmic, secular style of Shinzen Young. Har-Prakash has studied intensively with Shinzen since 1999 and created and produced the Shinzen Young videos on the expandcontract YouTube channel. Har-Prakash has also studied with Joshu Sasaki Roshi (Rinzai Zen), Leigh Brasington (Jhana teacher) and has participated in many inipi ceremonies (sweat lodges) with the native elder Vern Harper. Har-Prakash has a deep love for the finer points of the meditation process from various traditions including the contemplative Christian, Hindu, Sikh, Sufi, Buddhist and secular scientific perspectives. He has an ongoing passion and gift for teaching how each contemplative approach fits within the human sensory system, how meditation in any style can be deepened for practitioners at any level, and how this can be integrated into improving the self and the world.
