The Awakened Self Foundation Presents

THE VEDIC WAY

Learn, Embody and Awaken in Acharya Shunya’s Global Community

The Vedic Way is an ongoing membership community to receive paradigm shifting teachings from Acharya Shunya, and awaken to a whole new level of wellbeing, joy and authenticity. This wisdom springs from the heart of Acharya Shunya’s own lineage and that of the ancient, but still wonderfully alive Vedic tradition from India, encompassing the disciplines of Ayurveda, Yoga and Advaita.

 

AN INVITATION TO SEEKERS WORLDWIDE

I  invite you to become a member of the The Vedic Way, where, through ongoing weekly teachings from me, you will experience a beautiful inner integration, practical life guidance and  spirituality grounded in the divine feminine, along with timeless wisdom of nondual Advaita (Vedanta), Ayurveda and Yoga. Expect to be renewed in hope and in strength.

You will also benefit from connecting with a world family of most committed seekers, who might well become your heart friends, for the rest of your life journey.

I have to say that nothing like this program has ever been offered by me before and I feel excited as well as satisfied  to offer it at this time to the world, when our human lives are especially fragile, filled with emotional despair, confusion, anxiety, with an overall sense of malaise due to uncertainty, unrest, inequality, unnecessary violence  and unprecedented ecological outcomes.

Thankfully, the Vedic seers of ancient  India have gifted us perennial wisdom that offers humanity some very real solutions for our suffering, and ignites within us an eternal flame of knowledge. This comforting light in the midst of frightening darkness, helps shape a wiser, more authentic, enlightened and empowered human, who is at the same time, embodied and in harmony with nature, in the here and now.

From this perspective, The Vedic Way acts like a bridge between ancient wisdom and issues faced by modern humans, today. It is an incubator, birthing beautiful possibilities to learn, embody and awaken in the body, mind and soul.

This is a perfect program for anyone who simply wishes to know more about Vedic wisdom and its disciplines of Ayurveda, Yoga and Advaita, not in an academic way, but truly integrated with daily life, health and relationships. If you join, your life will change for the better, without the intellectual overwhelm of formal, pedagogical, study.

The Starting Ones 

You may have read Acharya Shunya’s books and are curious about her style of teaching, her legacy of knowledge from her guru, her interaction with seekers, and would perhaps like to get a taste of her teachings first-hand and enjoy ‘participating in her community’, ask her questions perhaps, then this may be a great place to begin.

The Ready Ones 

This is a recommended program for those who already know they wish to study with Acharya Shunya in an ongoing manner, week after week, month after month, year after year, because the ability to study with a living master, the leader of an ancient lineage and a teacher of teachers is rare indeed, and such an opportunity is always valued by ready souls. 

The Committed Ones 

This is also a great place for students who have been studying with Acharya Shunya for some time now in her other programs or have graduated from them,  yet wish to go deeper with her in a sustained and affordable manner, where concepts they have become familiar with shall stay alive through renewed emphasis, repetition and embodiment.

The Busy Ones 

Everyone, no matter how busy they are, can take advantage of this opportunity to learn, because it does not demand much except to show to the class ‘live’ on one evening a week or catch recorded sessions later, at a convenient time. Each week, seekers will take baby steps, and over time, their mind, body, soul, will blossom, organically.
