Signature Keynote Program:
The Light We Give
Growing up in South Texas, Simran Jeet Singh and his brothers confronted racism daily. As a turbaned, bearded, brown-skinned Sikh, he continued to face prejudice and hate in college and beyond. Simran chose to be defined not by the negativity that often surrounded him but by the Sikh teachings of love and justice that he grew up with. Delving deep into these core tenets of Sikh wisdom, he has sought to embrace an outlook that guides us to see the good in everyone and to forge a path of positivity, connection, and service—a way of life that so many of us are seeking in today’s world.
In his signature keynote program, Simran lays out how we can learn to integrate ethical living with personal happiness.
Helping people reach beyond their comfort zones and limits to practice this deeper form of living.
Exploring how everyone can learn the insights and skills that have led him to find a crucial balance.
Offering ways to commit to activism without becoming consumed by rage, self-pity, or burnout.
