Biography

Shunyamurti became aware of yoga as a spiritual path at an early age and was immediately drawn to it. He spent many years of meditation practice and training in numerous forms of yoga, including apprenticeship with Baba Hari Dass, deep study of the life and teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi, and ten years of vowed association with a Brahmachari ashram in India. 

 

The teachings of such Eastern approaches to consciousness as Sankhya, Advaita, Advaya, and the insights of esoteric Shaivism and Buddhism, have been supplemented by the intensive study of Western metaphysics, and profound exploration of the dimensions opened by entheogens. 

 

From formal study of transpersonal psychology and hypnotherapy, various forms of psychoanalysis, including Kleinian and Lacanian approaches, and post-Jungian analysis and dreamwork, to the perennial philosophies, including Taoism, Kabbalah, and mystical Christianity, to postmodern philosophy, Shunyamurti has been a lifelong student and meditator.

 

Spontaneous, inspired, and always unique

…a transformative Presence…

 

Shunyamurti has touched the hearts of countless beings all around the world. His uncanny capacity to penetrate past all our defenses with compassionate wisdom heals and empowers all who know him.

 

Whether in satsang or individual meetings, or his video transmissions on YouTube and beyond, Shunyamurti guides seekers lovingly and adeptly through a sacred process of ego death and divine rebirth.
