KARAM KRIYA TRAINING
Karam Kriya Training Overview
The founding director of the training is Shiv Charan Singh; who runs the International School of Karam Kriya School He is co-director of Quinta do Rajo with Satya Kaur and the Guru Ramdas Ashram in Portugal.
Shiv Charan’s interest in the link between the concrete physical and abstract spiritual aspects of life led him through a thorough study of Kundalini Yoga philosophy and practice and into several counseling courses culminating with a degree in humanities, as well as independently studying a number of different approaches to physical, mental and spiritual health. In time he began to integrate these studies through the common base of Numerology [the first and last language, common to all] and brought it together in a way of working with others through healing conversations.
As a spiritual teacher and trained counsellor, Shiv Charan Singh offers profoundly transformative individual consultations. Since 2002 he has been leading a challenging and radically awakening training programme in Karam Kriya consultancy in many countries. This program is now also being adapted to the online context.
This training offers students the opportunity to learn about communication and relationships. First by examining the nature of the mind in order to render it transparent. Then by an in-depth exploration of the five universal voices that speak in everyone. And constantly supported by reference to the backbone of numbers as well as the 10 Spiritual Bodies. The course calls on the student’s motivation and willingness to self-initiate into an accelerated and self-directed learning process.
To develop the skills and consciousness required to hold a space in which individuals or groups can engage in the process of Karam Kriya with increasing awareness. The training offers a language that will be as a bridge linking the personal and the Cosmic. Consultants will develop their own style of excellence and personal expression in the 5 natural languages, these are:
- Magic [ numbers ]
- Medicine [ time/energy ]
- Science [ technology of shape/space ]
- Art [ conscious sensitivity ]
- Education [ learning how to learn
Some Important Points
- Commitment: According to the students own commitment the course can be presented and experienced in a clear and systematic progression. Students will need to do some work in their own time.
- Certificate: One of your aims of the course may be to attain a certificate in Karam Kriya Consultancy. Who will recognise this course and certificate? The first point is: Will you recognise it? You will be invited to explore the concept of self-qualification and to relate that to the status given to this kind of work in a changing world as well as in the general context of the current therapeutic field in your country.
- Course format: The course includes content delivery, group discussion, pair work, peer groups, reading material, research and homework.
We are all made of the same stuff and the variations are slight. Every human goes through the same natural learning process so no matter how much we aim to be different we remain always just another version of the universal blueprint.
Stage 1 “Training The Mind To Right Understanding”
Change comes through exchange. Exchange happens in relation. Relation is communication. To be a presence that consciously inspires meaningful change in the communication with others in the world is only possible after sacrificing our misconceptions.
The mind (sum of psycho-emotional programming and identification) can be an automatic and hypnotic entity that rules us or a servant of our soul with many powerful faculties to apply.
The first part of the training is to see through the mind and its many tricks; we will examine ego-mind and the games it plays from the view of spiritual insight. This will include a study of the 7 steps to hell contrasted with the 7 steps to happiness. In addition, you will learn to recognize the cosmic fairy tale that is being played out in the lives of every individual being. With this transparency of the mind, we will eventually (later in the training) take a new look at the concept of a professional code of ethical conduct.
Freeing the consciousness from the trap of mistaken identity makes it possible to then train the mind to the true vision and understanding that will result in our words becoming a bridge between the individual and the cosmic, the personal and the universal. The mind will be able to perceive and honour the divine order in action.
This part of the training is also to explore the professional basis for Karam Kriya Consultancy, the game of questions and answers, the use of the visual faculty of the mind and the nature of knowledge.
This stage is currently 5 days [or 5 online sessions] of training. It can be attended without commitment to the full training. Thereafter students will have to be highly motivated and ready to go through accelerated learning processes as well as continue the training in their own time with homework.
Stage 2 “The Five Universal Voices And Their Sequences”
The second part of the training will begin to explore the whole nature of language and communication in general. You will be introduced to the 5 voices that govern all human communication. You can imagine that every conversation between two people is taking place over 4 telephone lines at the same time, while the synthesis of these gives the 5th voice. You will be introduced to each of these communication lines and how they relate to each other. You will gain a general sense of the nature of each voice and its pathway of unfolding.
This second stage is over 5 days/sessions. For some people this might be all they want to do and the general introduction phase will be over.
Stage 3 “The Voice of Magic. Numbers and the Application of the Voices in the Healing Conversation”
Initiating a study of the basic universal laws that are at work behind every system, religion and philosophy. The universal attitude is loving service. The common essence, or building blocks, of every teaching is the subtle language of numbers. You will become familiar with the magic of numbers and start to develop a kind of x-ray vision that allows you to see the inner structure of all things and people. Our main field of enquiry will be that of human communication.
These sessions go deeper beyond the introductions that have been shared so far and intensify the study of each of the voices and their inter-relation. We will look deeply at the specific themes of each voice that plays out its existence in everyone’s lives. We will learn to be flexible enough in our own communication that we can choose the voice that we respond to others with. We will know the mysterious voice of magic, the compassionate voice of medicine, the rational voice of science, the intuitive voice of art and the integrative voice of learning.
Another important part of this stage of the training is discovering the 4 natural sequences that unfold in conversation. Along with learning how to support a healthy and transformative journey through these sequences.
The above section of training consists of 4 modules each of 5 days/sessions. Along with plenty of home study for the student that is enthusiastic and committed.
Stage 4 Advanced Application
The 4th stage sets out a more impersonal, advanced and specialised application of the knowledge of the numbers and the 5 voices. We will look at implications of these insights to group work, managing confrontational and difficult conversations, development of a professional code, healing the ancestral threads, shifting from suffering duality into the creative play of polarity, leadership and being led, and other themes and approaches that contribute to self-mastery.
This is 3 modules, each of 5 days/sessions.
Stage 5 Mentorship Programme
A mentorship program for those who wish to become involved as trainers in Karam Kriya.

Subject to so much internal and external stress how can it become like gold and radiate?
Vitality is the capacity of the nervous and glandular system to respond and adapt.
It is also a sign of a harmonious relationship to the vastness of the cosmos and its laws.
Stress can be the training ground to develop this capacity or it can produce a degeneration of this capacity.

The first distinction to make might be between being a religious person (not meaning religious institutes or their dogma) and a Yoga practitioner. Some differences are just different ways to say the same thing.
This article describes the four stages of community development and is inspired by the lives of the 10 Sikh Gurus and their teachings as embodied in the Sri Guru Granth Sahib.
Principles lay the foundation of institutions as well as our personal lives. Therefore we hear of founding principles. The principle is a title given to a leader and therefore also a guide. And so we refer to guiding principles.
