The missing gap?

A high percentage of our youth are unable to express themselves, have confidence in their communication and are surrounded by a lot of uncertainty and external factors that impact how they should be, act or feel. It's easy to get swept up in fear, doubt, peer pressure or the swirl of negative emotions. ⁠⁠However, it does not need to be an uphill struggle with the access to the spiritual sounds of Guru's Kirtan or otherwise known as Sikh Music. It is an integral part of building an empowering connection to one's inner true state.

 

How to fill this gap?

Sikh Music is like therapy. It has the unique ability to redirect and reframe one's attention and inner state from a place of distress to a place of peace and tranquillity in an instant. Over the years, 70% of our learners in Sikh Music have been the under the age of 16. Through the study of Sikh Music, they have shown their families and us:

  • Positive changes to their behaviour
  • A shift in their attitude and outlook on life
  • Increased confidence in their speaking abilities
  • Increased focus time
  • More attentiveness to their surroundings and their feelings
  • More trust and faith towards their spiritual connection.

We want to spread these transformations and positive changes to as many individuals as possible.

 

The aim of the centre?

To train students in Sikh Music to enhance their inner connection to themselves under an effective and tested curriculum and in partnership with an authorised body such as a Panjabi School or Gurdwara where students can learn in a safe and welcoming space.

A centre can be set up anywhere in the world and made up of as few as 10 students or up to 30 students

The centre will hold weekly classes throughout the year.

 

 

Where will your donations go?

Our current centres run at 50% sponsorship, where we fund 50% of the set-up and running costs, and the learner contributes 50%. By donating, you will be making it possible for us to continue to fund 50% of all centres and enable us to reach many more students as possible.

One centre costs $9000 to run trainings on a weekly basis for 10 students for one whole year.

Your donations will go towards the following:

  • Setting up of the centre
  • Running costs of the training for the year
  • Course materials and handouts for each student
  • Appointing 1-1 support to the centre from a team member
  • Providing an annual live group masterclass free of all costs to the students

 

The foundational impact that your donation will create?

As a supportive donor, you will be opening the door to opportunities for students to be easily trained in utilising Sikh Music to channel better inner dialogue and empower their inner world.

The seeds of universal wisdom and sacred sounds started by Guru Nanak Ji with Sikh Music will have lasting ripple effects on each learner be it spiritually, mentally, emotionally or physically.

 

$30 Send blessings to inspire young minds

    What can 4 Months do?

    We are so pleased to meet our students from our Woolwich Centre last weekend at our annual Dukh Bhanjan event. Within 4months they felt confident enough to open the all-night simran event with waheguru simran in raag. 🥰🧡

    We look forward to their growth personally and spiritually.
