Colin “ELK” Dougher is a maverick adventure master with an uncanny insight into the human condition.
His journey from the the north shore of Boston to the back woods of downeast Maine and into the gauntlet of personal growth has taught him personal humility in the face of adversity and carved him into a man of deep spiritual integrity and roaring appreciation for the cosmic laughter at the heart of it all.
ELK empowers men to step into their purpose by leading from his heart and embodiying the sacred strength of masculine integrity.
“Elevating Light Knowledge” has become his war cry. Devoted to raising the vibrational awareness within himself and his fellow men, he has created a safe container for healing and personal expansion rooted in the universal truth that with dedicated practice and a simple shift in perspective anything is possible.
After completing a 9 month Embodied Men’s Leadership Training with his teacher, John Wineland, ELK clarified his life's purpose: Supporting his fellow man with deep reverence for the divine feminine that surrounds us all.

Dub Dietrich (Sat Raj Singh) was drawn to spirituality at a young age, as evidenced from a research paper he penned on “Transcendental Meditation” in 5 th grade. Since that “weird stuff” wasn’t what the “cool” kids were interested in, he pushed those thoughts away and went along with the popular flow. After years of struggling with whom he was and why he was on this planet, he found his answer. With much encouragement from his wife (a 17 year Kundalini practitioner and teacher), he finally gave in and sat down for a Kundalini meditation during a very stressful period in his life.
The second time he did Kirtan Kriya, he had an “opening,” experienced a level of peace that had been eluding him for years and knew that he had found his path. Since he had an education/profession as a scientist, it was the science of Kundalini that was the real draw for him. He experienced the fact that Kundalini was a dynamic practice that unifies the physical and the spiritual to awaken one to their full potential, but there was also an explanation of how and why Kundalini Yoga works so quickly on issues concerning the mind, body and soul.
This made him delve deeper and deeper into the practice to see where it would lead (and to see if he could find a flaw in the practice – none found yet). That search eventually led him to teacher training in Rishikesh India, where The Beatles found enlightenment 50 years ago, and to his teacher - Gurmukh (with whom he shares a birthday). His thirst for spirituality and knowledge can’t be satiated. He is most grateful for this practice as it has given him clarity, a new sense of awareness, the ability to feel deep compassion, the power to “not re-act” and the opportunity to share the light of these teachings that have profoundly shaped and changed his life. He finds joy in sharing the Kundalini Yoga teachings of Yogi Bhajan, serving others and traveling the world to experience new cultures. Sat Nam
