Between video games, scrolling on phones, socializing on Zoom, and online learning, children spend far more time on screens than before the pandemic. It has been an unprecedented moment in history where children have spent more time indoors than outdoors. Psychologists are alerting parents and educators that there will be periods of epic withdrawal once schools, activities, and social life return to normal.

Join us in a conversation with Dr. Shimi Kaur Kang and Dr. Jasjeet Kaur to learn how to treat screens like food: consume healthy tech, limit junk tech, and eliminate toxins.

3Gs: Guru, Gurgaddi, Granth

The world knows a Guru to be an influential teacher, spiritual master, or popular expert. The Sikh world refers to ten founder personalities as well as the Guru Granth and the Khalsa Panth as the Guru. Guru Nanak Sahib considered “Sabad” to be the Guru. This conversation will dive deep into the Sikh context of what Guru is, “Gurgaddi” as the enthronement to the status of the Guru in Sikh tradition, and how the eternal co-Guruship came about by the Command of Guru Gobind Singh Sahib to Granth-Panth. Within a month of this conversation are the first Prakash of Guru Granth Sahib and its Gurgaddi, Gurgaddi Purabs of Guru Nanaks II, IV, V & VIII.
