More About the Author

Hari Kirin Kaur Khalsa is an artist and teacher dedicated to healing through yoga and art. She teaches at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, the Antrim Girls Shelter, Omega Institute for Holistic Health and venues throughout the Us and Europe. Hari Kirin is currently exhibiting an installation called Wherever You Are is the Center of the World at the Brattleboro Museum.

Hari Kirin (b. Joan Hanley in Queens, NY 1955) has been a professional artist since finishing her BFA at Hartford Art School in 1976. Her twenties were spent between NY, at the School of Visual Arts or Columbia University, and Hartford, CT, where she participated in Real Art Ways. During this time she met her spiritual mentor, Mahan Tantric, Yogi Bhajan. In 1986 she moved to Cambridge MA to pursue her interest in art, healing and spirituality. In 1988 She received an MA in Creative Arts Therapies from Lesley University. At Lesley she was deeply influenced by psychologist James Hillman and writer Thomas Moore's ideas about images. She began exploring these ideas in her painting, collaborative group performances, and therapeutic art events. In 1986 Hari Kirin completed Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training and began teaching Yoga in Cambridge MA. She returned to graduate school and received an MFA degree from Vermont College in 2001 with a focus on Public Art.

Recent Public installations include Office Hours, 360 oil paintings in the Dublin Ireland Immigration office, The Flag Project, a community expression of diversity in the State Legislature in Concord NH, Axis Mundi, a 40 day meditation with local teens on a toxic site in Wilton NH and MudMural, a collaborative organic Mural. Hari Kirin has shown her paintings in one-woman shows at The Mariposa Museum, NH and The Open Center NY and Group shows in the Attleboro Museum MA and Liberty gallery Dublin Ireland. Her work has been reviewed in CIRCA, Resurgence and Aquarian Times. Recent lectures include the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Hofstra University, and the One Earth conference. She has been a visiting professor of Contemporary Art History at Marlboro College VT, and an artist teacher for Vermont College and Maine College of Art MFA programs.
Hari Kirin lives in New Hampshire with writer Thomas Moore and their two children.

*In 2007 Hari Kirin took Sikh vows and changed her name from Joan Hanley to Hari Kirin Kaur Khalsa. To view her workshops, paintings and public art events visit www.artandyoga.com Info on her exhibition: whereveryouareisthecenteroftheworld.com

First, a disclosure. I'm the author's husband and watched this book coming into being over many years. I've appreciated Hari Kirin's ability to draw out really good artistic images in groups where she goes deep into a very spiritual form of yoga and then moves seamlessly into art. Her own painting is sophisticated and penetrating. She has also been very creative in making public art. So it's isn't surprising that her book is a thing of beauty as well as a useful manual for anyone who wants to link yoga and art. She is very intelligent about both yoga and art and is able to make both of them deep and substantial. She is also a fine teacher and has been teaching yoga constantly ever since I met her almost twenty-five years ago. The book would be good for any yoga practitioner, but especially for teachers. In my books I like to explore ideas purely, but she makes every effort to help the reader. Even if you have never thought of the connection between yoga and art, you will gain much from seeing in detail how yoga can take you to a deep place that begs for thoughtful and creative expression. As a bonus, you'll see some of her own art and discover that so-called spiritual art can be as grounded and expertly crafted as any professional painting. In fact, I'd say that the book would be enlightening and enjoyable even if you don't practice yoga or have any interest in painting. Everyone needs to appreciate the place of the deep, reflective soul in the life of the spirit.

Format: Paperback
This book is great! Hari Kirin Kaur Khalsa presents specific ways to integrate art and yoga together, because its something she's been able to do in her work - in yoga workshops and with art-risk youth. I found an interview where she spoke so well to why this is a great time to charge up our creativity... "because too much in the world is shifting for us to find our way with instinct or rational understanding. It takes a strong and lively imagination to deal effectively with this fluid, changing reality."

I particularly like the layout and design of this book. The illustrations and pictures of the art projects and yoga poses are beautiful and helpful. I have a collection of books about achieving well-being through art and yoga, but no one has had both! It stands high alongside Barbara Ganim's Art and Healing and Bernie Siegal's The Art of Healing.

This book is fantastic ! If you are an artist AND you love yoga, whether or not your love is kundalini yoga (but especially if it is!) you will truly enjoy this book. There are so many different ways it can be used, either working through it by yourself, with a friend or in a group....there is truly lots of fun and creativity to be had within this book. It is constantly ending back up on my bedside table, just to browse through it and see what I might try next. Have yet to work through the entire book, but absolutely intend on doing so. I love Hari Kirin Kaur Khalsa's writing voice and the pictures are also wonderful. Could not say anything but the best about this book..love it, great purchase. I hope to one day be able to take a class with her in NH, or maybe even take the level two teacher training (after finishing level 1 near home, of course) her approach is so cool, and will speak to so many artists out there....get this if you want to progress in your art, get this if you are stuck..get this to grow outward..to expand your view of the world and let it translate into your art. Thank you Hari Kirin :) Sat Nam.

With so many different Kundalini yoga books out there, this one stands out because it has a niche. Art! The author found a very creative way to engage the students in their process and growth. I plan to use it as a base for several workshops for my students. This is a great tool for personal growth and for a yoga teacher. Each chapter has its own unique class with the Kriya included (yoga sequence).

I didn't give it 5 stars, because I only wish the book had a bit more information about the Kriya and each class. But it is a great tool!

Liked the less stringent and innovative postures, much gentler to your body. .Some thought provoking quotes.. Requiring longer comments is too time consuming. Won't do any more..................
