The Problem

Are your thoughts overwhelming you and causing you anxiety and stress? Do you feel overpowered by your day-to-day problems? 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, accept your authentic emotions, and begin living a life of joy and total sovereignty

The Path

In just 15 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 inner 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 individual's consciousness, she has incorporated some of the innovations in online education that will support the journey of the seeker, as they progress through and complete the course.

It will be like being on a 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.

The principles of the Sovereign Self Paradigm taught in this course will help you...

"The biggest lesson that I've taken away from my studies with Acharya Shunya is the idea that, no matter what happens, it’s going to be okay. That I am not what happens to me. I am not what I do or don’t do. I simply am. I am not at the mercy of my mind, emotions, or circumstances. It’s such a simple, yet powerful lesson that has made a world of a difference to me."

Through the wisdom teachings from Acharya Shunya and her lineage, I was able to experience the radiance I had witnessed in her other students.  Acharya Shunya's spiritual teachings are a part of my day-to-day life, care for my child and what I share with my community.  I am forever grateful.

Studying with Acharya Shunya has been a transformational journey for me. My life has taken a turn for the better in every aspect; be it the difficult life situations, relationships or overwhelming mental distress. She taught me how to turn on my inner light even in the darkest and most stressful moments of my life. When that inner light shines through me, I feel like I am transported to an alternate universe which is illuminated by Vedic wisdom.

Meet Ishani, your course facilitator 

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.
