Description: ਭਗਤਾ ਕੀ ਚਾਲ ਨਿਰਾਲੀ ॥ This interactive workshop will allow participants to understand and explore the meanings and myriads of translations through discussions.

Moderator: Santbir Singh (ON)
Description: Learn from our glorious history, of Singhs and Kaurs that sacrificed their all to walk on this narrow path. How they dealt with adversity, and challenged the status quo. Santbir Singh will regale you with the stories of Sikhs from the Guru’s period, the times of Misls, Khalsa Raj, and even contemporary times. These examples of historical figures will illustrate how through the ages, Gursikhs have been inspired by Gurbani to walk on the edges of swords.

Description: “Often times what makes the headlines or hits the history books are those prolific leaders and the milestone events, but that’s rarely where revolutions begin.” – Rubin Paul Singh

As current events have shown us, to take a stand and bring about a paradigm shift requires an enormous change in social thinking. Gurbani and Sikh history tell us that every small action and effort adds up, brings down regimes, alters cultural mindsets and inspires generations forever. Be a part of this intense creative group discussion and develop the skills to bring about micro revolutions of your own.
