Enlightenment is guaranteed once your Kundalini is awakened.  How do you cooperate with the process? How can you understand what’s going on, while it’s going on?  As a Kundalini master, Swami Nirmalananda is able to not only awaken Kundalini for you, but to guide and support you in the process of blossoming into your Self.

She says, “I’ve been able to offer only a small portion of the classic teachings on Kundalini, in various Shaktipat Retreats and immersions over the years.  The Year-Long Programme is a perfect format for me to unveil the mystery, especially since only part of the teachings can be in writing, while others are only for oral transmission.  For you who have received Shaktipat from me or through your Svaroopa® Yoga practices, this will make your process easier as well as speed it along.  For those of seeking the great gift of Kundalini awakening, this is assured.  It’s all due to my Guru’s great Grace, for which I offer my life in service.”

Swami Nirmalananda explains the mystical reality of Kundalini in a full year of teachings, which culminates in a weekend retreat.  The more fully you immerse yourself, the more powerful your experience will be.  This is always true, in anything you do, as well as in your spiritual growth and development. 

Swamiji’s Year-Long Programmes always boost your progress on the spiritual path, but this year promises even more.  If all she offered were the profound teachings from the texts and oral tradition, this would be a great year.  But you always get more when you study with a Knower of Consciousness.  The books offer the theory, but one who lives in the continuing experience offers more.  

The mystical menu for our multi-media course includes:

  • Human energetics — the greatness implicit within you, it’s hiding and blossoming
  • Chakras and nadis — what happens when Kundalini opens your chakras
  • Granthis — unlocking the inner knots at your tail, heart and third eye
  • Initiation — the importance and necessity of accepting the gift
  • After Shaktipat — how long will the process take?
  • And more…

Especially in the (optional) discussion group, Swamiji is able to customize the course to your needs and readiness.  By hearing your reports and understandings, she adds more information to the course, not only in the call but also in the written and audio lessons that follow.  Thus, those in the phone calls have the opportunity to sculpt the course as it progresses throughout the year.

The Retreat in Lokananda is an extra-special this year, a 4-day weekend instead of just 3 days.  You can relax into the company of so many yogis with such deep experiences, as well as Swamiji’s ability to meet you where you are at and take you the next step — Grace-fully!

You will be at a whole new place within your Self by the end of this course, and you will even know where you are. And what to do next.  Of course, you already know what the answer will be — do more yoga!

Svaroopa® Yoga

To Truly Know...

Kundalini must be awakened for you to know the Self, for Kundalini HerSelf is your own Self., in an active form that uplifts you and transforms you from the inside-out.
