About Shunyamurti

Shunyamurti is an adept healer, he is the founder and spiritual director of the Sat Yoga Institute and Ashram.

Many years of meditation practice and training in numerous forms of yoga, including apprenticeship with Baba Hari Dass, ten years of vowed association with a Brahmachari ashram in India, and a special resonance with Sri Ramana Maharshi have been supplemented by the intensive study of Western metaphysics, various forms of psychoanalysis and Jungian dreamwork, as well as Taoism, Kabbalah, and mystical Christianity.

I started to feel real, powerful warmth in my heart when I was meditating in the group. The atmosphere here with everyone is very healing. I'm very pleased with my time here, and I'm pleased to find out what's ahead.

Oliver, England

I first watched a teaching by Shunyamurti on YouTube and was filled with emotion. I realized that I resonated with him and the Ashram, and I signed up the next day. When you sit in front him, you connect. I realized things before he said them, which felt like I had been studying him for years already.

Sammantha, S. Africa

I question what to do with my life. With so many questions, after twenty years in the big corporate world, I knew what I didn't want to do. I got clarity: clarity on the personal level, and the consequence is amazing, interesting, and frightening at the same time. After seven days of silence and teachings, the question for me is not if I come back, but when I come back.
