Practice, a.k.a, sadhana, means doing stuff like meditation and mantra. Shambhavi would love to see you at a live teaching. But until then, here are some ways to get started waking up and discovering what the heck is going on here. (By “here” we mean in human bodies on Earth.)
Shambhavi’s mission is to offer teachings about the nature of the Self and reality that are accessible and immediately usable. She shows us how the principles and practices of direct realization traditions such as Trika Shaivism and Dzogchen apply to the choices we face in our lives every day.

Trika Shaivism (also called Shaiva Tantra or Kashmir Shaivism) from North India and Dzogchen from Tibet are nondual, direct realization traditions. They emphasize discovering your real nature and the nature of reality for yourself. Living a profoundly uncontrived life is one way to describe the aim of our practice. Many of us also love the teachings of Anandamayi Ma.
