What can you say about a person who knew from a very early age that her destiny lay in leading others to greatness? Creative? Yes. Born leader? Yes, again. Free spirited thinker? Yes, yes, yes! She is also direct, funny, and full of mischief with bright blue eyes and a wicked smile!
Gurutej Kaur, (known simply as Gurutej), told her mother just that when she was six years old. For over 36 years, Gurutej has taught people how to connect to their higher consciousness through yoga, chanting, meditation and healing. Everyday she lives the meaning of her Sikh name, which translates as "the one who brings you from darkness into light at the speed of light."
In 1969 Gurutej met Yogi Bhajan. Bhajan is credited for having brought Kundalini Yoga here to the United States. As one of his original students, Gurutej emerged as a founding practitioner of Kundalini. Through his instruction and spiritual guidance, Gurutej is considered a foremost authority on Kundalini and internationally recognized as one of a handful of Kundalini Yoga Masters in the World.
YVONNE: Tell me something about yourself and your background.
GURUTEJ: I have written lots but this is about my Teaching background because these are DVD’s. I have been teaching for 40 years and loving it I did run a yogic community for 17 years across Canada and have taught everything from businesses, to 1st graders, to teens and women to couples to celebrities to classes of wonderful people around the world. I have courses in India, Ireland, and England in the first couple months of the New Year.
YVONNE: Give us the basics so we’ll know what it’s about.
GURUTEJ: DVDs Mental Clarity and can you guess what that is for. Strengthening the Immune System speaks for itself, awakening the intuition for women, very important with bonus material on food and special meditations for women. Chakra yoga, which teaches how to balance our energy, one center at a time or all together.
YVONNE: What inspired you to create these items?
GURUTEJ: DVDs and flip charts to get these teachings out there that will support people in these trying times. They are good for all times but now most people are seeing how anxiety affects everything. These can help bring you to a state of calm and give you back your hope in you and each other. This is important to our healing as individuals, our country and the world. We are all part of a connected whole and these help connect us to ourselves and be able to release and rejuvenate ourselves in ways that support and sustain us.
Flip charts are things you can do in 1-3 minutes that will change your energy and change your life. It is a totally cute flip chart that will sit on your desk or fit into your purse to be pulled out as our personal AAA when we start to break down or before we get there.
YVONNE: Is this your first product?
GURUTEJ: No I have four DVD’s
YVONNE: How long did it take to write this product? Any interesting tidbits about your writing method or how the book developed?
GURUTEJ: The first DVD was so easy I planned it showed up did the taping and others did all the rest. The other three I was intimately involved in the editing and adding of material and they each took incredible as it may seem 2 years each to complete. Yes it felt like that for me too but that’s how dedicated I felt to getting this information out to each of you. Joel Gotler said “These are the best yoga DVD’s I have ever seen.” He is a certified Iyengar Teacher though he is best known as an extraordinary literary agent getting 200 titles made into movies. He also said no one over 40 should do any other kind of yoga this just works. He decided to do the mental clarity one before a very challenging meeting and guess what the meeting went so smooth he was shocked, pleasantly so.
YVONNE: How did you publish your DVDs? Tell me about your publishing experience and what you learned from it. Please go into detail if you wish.
GURUTEJ: I took them to Sounds True and they became my champion. That is how they were distributed and will be again.
YVONNE: Where are your DVDs available? Do you have a Web site or blog where we can learn more about you or your DVDs?
GURUTEJ: All my DVD’s are available at http://www.gurutej.com/ under products. These are great healthy holiday gifts. The flip charts are for everyone; everyone will be helped by them. One very famous person said that his flip chart was his favorite gift he got at this conference. They are like your guardian angel ready to help you at all times.
YVONNE: As far as marketing, do you do more online publicity or print/radio/TV promotion? Tell me some ways you have promoted your book. Give examples and links to any sites you feel might help other authors.
GURUTEJ: I have relied much too heavily on a dysfunctional distributor. Now I am out there in the World Wide Web and I will give feedback when this is complete. Thank you for your help in getting these invaluable techniques into the head and hearts of the many.
YVONNE: Have you hired a publicist to help promote this book? If so, what was your experience like?
GURUTEJ: Just the lovely Nikki Leigh and her amazing band of people.
YVONNE: Any other comments or things you would like for us to know?
GURUTEJ: So much, where do you want me to start? My mission is for people to feel connected and whole. This is an offering to support that goal. Count on seeing and hearing more from me more and more. I will be doing conferences on these teachings so everyone can become their own Energy Guru.
YVONNE: Thank you for giving us the opportunity to get to know you and learn about your book. I wish you well. And I wish you well and send you Blessings
