Frequently Asked Questions

Need further clarification? Message us below ...

PROFESSIONALS: We have many students from regular professions who wish to create extraordinary consciousness in their otherwise ordinary lives. Our methods, techniques, and teaching process empowers and enriches anyone interested in the secrets of transforming their consciousness daily.

SPIRITUAL PRACTITIONERS: No matter what your background in spiritual practice, our programs and processes can advance your understanding and experience of spiritual practice to new levels. We are not sectarian in our approach. We have broad and in-depth knowledge of both eastern and western spiritual modalities.

YOGA TEACHERS: Yoga teachers, especially those who have completed their 200 or 300-hour certification, and those who are seasoned yoga teachers at the 500 or 1000 hour levels, will find our programs take them to the next level. You can supplement your teaching, and your practice with esoteric yogic wisdom made meaningful.

We know that we can raise the bar on your practice and experience through our processes.

HEALERS AND THERAPISTS: Healers, therapists, bodyworkers, energy healers, chakra healers, vibrational medicine healers, crystal bowl healers, and other kinds of healers can complement their practice with our superior knowledge and applications of sacred sound. Our techniques range from simple to extremely sophisticated.

TANTRA AFICIONADOS: We have a wide range of programs and levels that can help Tantric practitioners and teachers in the west refine and mature their knowledge and understanding of Tantra so that it is fortified with the authenticity of the tradition. Our knowledge of Tantra is both theoretical as well as practical, although we do not teach Tantric sex.

We recommend that new students begin with our foundational programs and then move on to our specialized trainings. However, we do not insist on any specific chronology. You may begin with whatever seems to be the right fit for you at the present time.

FOUNDATIONAL PROGRAMS

Students with an interest in sacred sound and mantra should consider these two foundational courses.

Yoga of Sound Immersion: A great way to learn about the scope of sacred sound and how it relates and applies to healing. Sacred sound is our essential platform and area of expertise. It is also the basis of all Indian spirituality and theology.

Transformed by Mantra: Immerse yourself in our signature mantra programs to take you from a beginner to intermediate levels of understanding and practice.

TRANSFORMATION AND HEALING

These are more involved foundational courses that are recommended for those who are not that interested in sacred sound and mantra but are drawn to deeper spiritual practice and reinventing their selves and their lives.

Spiritual Makeover: Begin with a daily contemplative practice, then go through a Chakra Cleanse, and complete by visioning your soul's destiny.

Golden Path to WholenessA way for therapists, healers, and teachers to approach enlightenment in ways that are meaningful and effective for us today.

SPECIALIZED TRAININGS

Mastery of Tantra: Study sacred sound and sacred touch for self-healing and self-care. Great for healers, therapists, Tantra practitioners, and those who wish to study traditional practices.

If you completed 3 initial years of Yogic Mystery School (2018 to 2011), here is how our previous programs have evolved into the present system. 

For those who have completed our 3 years of Yogic Mystery School (May 2008 to May 2011), here’s how we have deepended, expanded, and evolved.

When we began, we offered Mantra, Music, and Meditation over a three year period. There was, however, no “training” in mantra. You just studied the tutorials and presented your questions. No one “listened” to you chanting and offered you feedback, or helped you get better at your chanting and pronunciation.

Our “Mantra” modules (originally provided on DVD) have been scrapped and completely redone. They have been reconstructed in our Mastery of Mantra Training. There is a premier version of this program as well as discounted versions.

In the school year 2012, (Fall 2012 to Fall 2013) we started to create The Secret Life, which was followed by Chakra Cleanse and culminated in Manifesting Your Soul’s Destiny. The entire program is now called “Spiritual Makeover: Reinventing Yourself From The Inside Out”. In 2013, we developed “Love Mysticism”, that is now also part of Spiritual Makeover. “Practice of Presence”, created in 2018, and “Intimacy With the Divine” created  in 2019, are being made more relevant and added to Spiritual Makeover in 2020 to create a new one year program. 

From 2012 through 2015, we also created “Sound Body Subtle Body” and “Sacred Visions of the Divine Feminine” that expanded upon our Saraswati Puja created earlier. The former has evolved into the Mastery of Tantra and is much more elaborate than ever before. The latter evolved into Shodasha Upacara (healing and empowering the divine feminine), an advanced program beyond the Mastery of Mantra that is also quite elaborate. Descriptions of these programs are presented in “Advanced Programs” above.

From 2016, we started to develop The Rudram and Vigheshwara Puja. These are programs built around healing and empowering the sacred masculine (Shiva); and Ganesha—prototype for the new millennium (transforming karma and removing obstacles). These programs continue into May 2020.

In 2018, we created The Golden Path To Wholeness, an approach to self-healing using spiritual practice. In 2019, we created “Cultivating Abundance Consciousness” that began enrollment in early 2020.

Not at all. What you need to realize is that you are going to receive only that which is most relevant to you at any given time, which is always the now. Once you start to realize the benefits of Sri Vidya as a path, you will be in a position to determine its value to you. This is why we have created this customized approach.

It is also about quality of consciousness, what you are experiencing on a daily basis and how that can get better. You do have to put in the work though. What we have are extraordinary tools and techniques that create amazing results.

OUR ANNUAL INDIA PILGRIMAGE

Each year, since 1999, we've taken our students to India to immerse ourselves in spiritual practice and engage in deep transformation together. 

TRANSFORM IN INDIA

However, because of the current pandemic, we do not want to take any risks for 2021, despite having a number of our students eager to make the trip again with us.

 

So we invite students interested in our trip to join our online Spiritual Makeover that is modelled on the Transform in India process we offer in India each year.

SPIRITUAL MAKEOVER

Should we end up doing our pilgrimage in January 2021, we will apply a percentage of your online tuition towards the trip. These details are on the enrollment pages for our 2020 Online Spiritual Makeover.
