The Problem

Are your thoughts overwhelming you and causing you anxiety and stress? Do you feel overpowered by your day-to-day problems or circumstances? Are you your own critic? Do you betray your own  self?

The Solution

Your highest path – should you decide to walk it – is to reclaim the power and freedom of your soul to become the master of your mind, understand your authentic emotions, and begin living a life of joy and total sovereignty

The Path

In just 12 weeks, Acharya Shunya will guide you through a step-by-step process in building a toolbox of wisdom insights and soul awakening practices that will help you overcome your challenges and enjoy your empowered Self.


An Experience Like No Other

There’s a reason that the Vedas have given rise to several world religions, Advaita (nondual teachings), Yoga, and Ayurveda, and influenced Western thinkers from Emerson to Ram Dass. They provide us with a uniquely accessible and effective path to knowledge of our true Self, liberation, and sovereignty. However, authentic Vedic wisdom is rare, and many people go on a pilgrimage to India for several months to get a glimpse of it.

Join Acharya Shunya, a Vedic Master and Bestselling Author, and fellow seekers in this course where she will present classical and undiluted wisdom of the Vedas, while also demystifying and contextualizing these sacred concepts for modern life. With her undying commitment to transforming individuals' consciousness, she has incorporated innovations in online education that support the journey of the seeker, as they progress through and complete the course.

It will feel like being on an extended Spiritual Retreat but from the comfort of your own home where the demands of your everyday life become opportunities to integrate these teachings and practices in real time.

In our 12 weeks together, you will...

  • Meet and explore the nine dimensions of your Sovereign Self

  • Differentiate between conditional feelings and behavior and those that express your true Self

  • Cultivate the one desire that leads you back home to the Self

  • Use three simple steps to practice and maintain Sovereignty

  • Create your own personalized roadmap from the knowledge you've gained


These principles will help you...


  • Activate latent Soul power so that you can remember and follow your life purpose

  • Step out of self-defeating unconscious energy and create the life of your dreams through conscious choice

  • Outsmart your mind’s tendencies to create stress, anxieties and fears

  • Experience healthy detachment and embrace freedom as a way of life 

  • Witness your emotions, stop suppressing your feelings, and access your intuition

  • Actually manage your thoughts and make them work for you 

  • Truly live a life of purpose, joy and wellbeing with Dharma

  • Stop giving away your power and instead cultivate conscious response

  • Embody conscious communication and healthy boundaries to strengthen relationships

Ishani, Your assistant teacher 

Ishani Lauren Naidu is a respected spiritual educator inside Acharya Shunya’s ancient Vedic lineage, who has been awarded the honorific title "Vidushi" by Acharya Shunya, which means “woman of wisdom” in Sanskrit. This title is earned only by the most earnest students of the Vedas, when they are ready to give back to the world, the fund of knowledge they have received, from their teacher. 


Ishani immersed herself in the Vedic path and quest for the true Self under her spiritual teacher Acharya Shunya’s guidance, via a deeply held, one on one mentoring and grooming process, and study of source texts that lasted for an uninterrupted period of 12-years. 


Ishani is the author of “The Song at the Heart of the River” (Harper Collins, India, 2020) that weaves classical themes of Ayurveda and nondual wisdom (Vedanta) into a heartfelt story and activities for children and adults alike.
