KARAM KRIYA INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL - FOUNDER & DIRECTOR SHIV CHARAN SINGH
Shiv Charan Singh, an unassuming and authentic spiritual teacher, Scottish by birth, is the founding director of the International Karam Kriya School (1996). Karam Kriya means ‘Total action through which our karma is brought to completion though application of spiritual consciousness guided by the intelligence of numbers’. Karam Kriya is the name given to this approach by Yogi Bhajan, who himself laid out the basis for it with Tantric Numerology and said that he would come to teach this all around the world, which he does.
As a renowned teacher of Kundalini Yoga (since 1980) and a Lead Teacher Trainer for the KRI accredited Kundalini Yoga Aquarian Teacher Training Level I & Level II, Shiv Charan Singh mentors training programmes worldwide. In the year 2000, he founded, along with his wife Satya Kaur, the vibrant and cosmopolitan Kriya Centre in London. And in 2007 he relocated to Portugal where he co-founded the Quinta do Rajo Ashram, a retreat centre and home base for the International Karam Kriya School.
Shiv Charan Singh is neither self seeking nor political in his teachings. He is entertaining and both charismatic and humble in the way he speaks. Above all, his warmth and compassion have generated a community spirit at the school which reaches out to the community regardless of age and background, and attracts people from all over the world. Karam Kriya School now has branches internationally, established by long term committed students of Shiv Charan. The Australian branch is one such example.
