Break Free of Shame, Blame, Anxiety & Compulsions


Experience The  Sovereign Self Paradigm

A 12-Week Online Inner Transformation Program With Acharya Shunya


Do you know there’s a part of you that is never  caught up in the drama, struggles, fears and sorrows of the mind? 


This course, based upon the nondual (Advaita Vedanta) teaching of Vedic scholar, author and lineage ordained master teacher Acharya Shunya,  teaches you how to access THAT part, which is forever sovereign. When you learn to access this part of you called the SELF, you will gain nine spiritual abilities that belong to the Self. Each of those abilities or powers shall redefine your being and transform your life and relationships, through sheer awareness. When we  recognize our essential nature as Self, which is unlimited, unbounded and forever free awareness; our lives change, that very instant.


This course facilitates multiple levels of  awakening by self-enquiring and self-witnessing; no experience, religious background, or practice is necessary.


"For a while, my mind was plunged in the depths of darkness, devastated from sorrowful relationships, despairing from the sudden deaths of people I loved, and disheartened by the shocking curve balls that life can throw our way.

Yet despite everything—even losing my sense of worth for a short time along the way—here I am. I feel the power, wholeness, and joy of being alive! These are not mere words. This is my visceral experience of my own self-worth after I regained connection to the  Sovereign Self within me,  to write my life script anew. I don’t regret my learning curve, my mistakes in the past. I am proud to be mentally and spiritually sovereign today, and you can be too.

I am confident,  that  if you take this course with me, you too will learn to access your true Self, that part of you that is forever sovereign, emotionally and spiritually speaking. You will finally begin leading the life you were always meant to lead: as the sovereign master or mistress of your own mind, desires and destiny.

Absolute authority over your inner world is your spiritual birthright. This course will give you the tools to begin leading a sovereign life."

Do your thoughts trap you in spirals of anxiety, fear or worry? Are you bound by relationships and life situations that cause suffering? Does it feel like you have limited options available to change or reinvent your life?


Your highest path – should you decide to walk it – is to  become the sovereign seer of your own mind, by unveiling the nine dimensions of your true Self, that shall help you experience authentic emotions, and begin living a life of joy and empowered sovereignty.


In a mere 12 weeks, Acharya Shunya will guide you through a step-by-step process of awakening practices that will help you uncover nine unique abilities of your true Self.  Enjoy your empowered, inwardly free and ultimately sovereign Self in life and in relationships.

“Know how infinitely whole, powerful, joyful, and ultimately free you are beyond your struggling personality. I invite you to meet your sovereign Self.”

  • What will I learn?
    This first-of-its-kind course is based upon the spiritually-potent Awakening Health Model™ of Ayurveda, as put forth by internationally renowned Ayurvedic teacher, healer, and scholar, Acharya Shunya. It goes beyond a basic level or micro-level study of Ayurveda (constitution-focused) and, instead, will launch you into a macro-level engagement with Ayurveda, its life wisdom, spiritual philosophy, health-enhancing lifestyle practices, superfoods, and recipes. You will learn nourishing daily rituals organized by the time of the day and aligned with the seasons. This course teaches you how to incorporate traditional practices, recipes, exercise, yoga, rituals of devotion, meditation, self-care and beauty into your modern lifestyle. You will learn the “why” and “how-to’s” of several traditional Ayurvedic health, well-being and immunity-enhancing lifestyle practices; morning and evening self-care, spiritual rituals and contemplations, self-massage, beauty and cooking instructions, and information on important spices, recipes, exercises, and ways to access inner peace and mental clarity. You will learn all about the Doshas, how modern lifestyles contribute to dosha imbalance, and how to restore dosha balance for vital health and strong immunity. You will learn in great detail about various food groups and their healing qualities, seasonal usage and impact on body and mind (dairy, cereals, pulses, vegetables, meats, oils, buts, fruits, etc). You will learn how to use Ayurvedic superfoods and other herbal elixirs to enhance your immunity and fortify your energy. ‘ In depth, you will explore Ayurveda’s lesser-known but very powerful Sacred Psychology teachings from ancient Ayurvedic texts that will help you calm and purify your own mind, and respond to relationship or work challenges with greater wisdom and presence of mind. "Health is not a probability that you may achieve. It is a reality, an underlying natural state of being." - Acharya Shunya
  • Can you explain what is different about the “Awakening Health Model” and how I stand to benefit from it?
    Acharya Shunya’s “Awakening Health Model” draws upon the enormously powerful but sadly forgotten psycho-spiritual teachings of Ayurveda that evoke inner abilities and latent resources to manage and transcend emotional stress, relationship challenges, and existential question marks. An increasing number of published studies are examining the connection between spirituality, health, and quality of life. Spirituality is different from religion. While religion pertains to devotion to a “god figure,” spirituality is universal and focused around expanding inner “awareness” and “consciousness.” It speaks to ultimate existential concerns, coping with the stress of life, loss, aging, personal strivings, and issues of adaptive functioning. Physical medicine has limitations in this capacity, and this is where the need to blend the hard science of disease management with pragmatic spirituality, ethics and values, becomes apparent. This is why those who are spiritually-inspired and have a sense of connectedness with a universal truth experience hope, meaning, purpose, and inner strength to overcome to become.
