Dare To Be You In A World That Values Conformity

Are you a fraud to society or a fraud to yourself?

Guru Singh

Welcome to another edition Guru Corner featuring my favorite teacher on all things mystic and metaphysical, Guru Singh.

Fusing Eastern mysticism with Western pragmatism, Guru Singh is a celebrated third-generation Sikh yogi and master spiritual teacher who has been studying and teaching Kundalini Yoga for more than 40 years. He is the author of several books, a powerful lecturer and behind-the-scenes guide to many a luminary, including Fortune 500 CEOs, athletes, and artists.

A peer of rock legends like Janis Joplin and the Grateful Dead, Guru Singh is also a supremely talented musician who began his recording career on Warner Bros’ Reprise label in the 1960s. When he isn’t laying down tracks with people like Seal, he’s bringing down the house on the daily at Yoga West, his Los Angeles home base.


Today’s conversation focuses on the importance of cultivating your true self in a world that values conformity over individuality.

Too many of us live disconnected lives. Lives led not mindfully, nor from a place of personal agency, but rather in reaction to external expectations and pressures. Personal expression is left repressed. The authentic voice is silenced. As a result, we suffer.

No longer. It’s time to sing your song. May this conversation with one of my very favorite people help you find the notes.

Note: If you missed my previous conversations with Guru Singh, start with episode 267 and then enjoy episodes 332, 368393 and 400.

Final Note: You can watch our conversation on YouTube at and the show is also now available on Spotify.

Let the master class resume.
