Sidaker, Ivraj Singh, discusses the power of Sidak and its impact on his life with Sidak Facilitator, Jasleen Kaur. They explore the boundless opportunities for growth and unexpected areas of enlightenment that come from the Sidak experience.

“What I did not expect was the amount of growth and learning that happened in the off-hours. Just sitting around in the Langar hall talking to Sikhs from very different walks of life or late night jam sessions in the Diwan hall learning different styles of Kirtan. All of that stuff I didn’t really expect because I had this image of this being a conference, we’re going to sit in the workshops and we’re going to exchange contact info.”

Sidaker, Ivraj Singh, discusses the power of Sidak and its impact on his life with Sidak Facilitator, Jasleen Kaur. They explore the boundless opportunities for growth and unexpected areas of enlightenment that come from the Sidak experience.

Sidak is designed as an adult learning experience. This means that there are many activities you will be asked to participate in, including organizing a cohort group, presenting group thoughts and ideas, leading a discussion on a given topic, listening to content delivery, and expressing new solutions to old problems. This style requires that you participate but, more importantly, that you grow as a leader. Your facilitators will monitor and present skills and knowledge needed at every level of learning. They will facilitate and help you learn, but real learning is up to you.
