With Shambhavi Sarasvati
A journey into relaxing deeply and immersing yourself in the immediacy of life. Shamatha softly re-integrates you into life as an experiencer rather than as an observer or through methods of concentration.
What You Will Learn
- What meditation is and is not according to direct realization practice.
- An open-eye meditation practice invoking the simplicity and calm abiding that comes from rediscovering your home in the world just as it is.
ALL LEVELS OF MEDITATORS ARE WELCOME.
None, but please only register if you have some experience meditating.
If you’re new to meditation, Shambhavi has recorded some guided meditations suitable for everyone. Click here for guided meditations.

About the teacher
Shambhavi emphasizes the more explicitly devotional teachings and practices of Trika Shaivism and Dzogchen and direct knowing through encounters with the wisdom of the heart. She is also known for making complex teachings about the nature of the self and reality understandable, practical, and always relatable to everyday experience. Her teachings are grounded in her more than thirty-five years of daily personal practice and personal retreats.
“Generosity is a fountain of living light at the heart of creation. Having opened your heart and recognized its identity with the heart of the divine, you want to be here giving and giving throughout your natural lifetime. This is the essence of realization.” ~Shambhavi
