Year of Graduation: 2017

Title of MRE: Going Through Changes: An In-Depth Examination of the Creation and Commodification of Kundalini Yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan.

Current/Future Plans: I am currently working at a Chiropractic Clinic learning all about the nervous system and its complex interconnection with the body’s structures. My future plans are to become a Chiropractor and then life coach, integrating all I’ve discovered and sharing it with others. One unforgettable finding from the MA program is that traditions, particularly their messages, necessarily evolve to continue to have relevance to the new coming generations. This informs the importance of being able to adapt and translate insightful messages from past masters in new found ways. Using esoteric language and concepts to communicate to a 21st century generation audience will not have nearly the same impact as using contemporary language and concepts to symbolize and aid in understanding the message.
