This practice focuses on awakening the powerful transformative force called "kundalini"- the Divine energy that is always present, already within every human being. When it flows through us, kundalini can wash away our deepest tensions, expand the flow of creative energy in us, and eliminate our misunderstandings about our true nature.
As we stay attuned to this vital force, we experience a profound growth that leads to love and spiritual fulfillment in our lives. The essence of this practice is about finding that sacred space within where the individual heart is merged into the heart of the Divine. That experience reveals our total unity with Divinity.
Shaktipat is the transmission of a living spiritual energy. The term literally means "the descent of grace," and it is a vitally important presence in the awakening of the kundalini. Shaktipat allows for the direct transmission of energy from teacher to student.
The teacher is Ellen Jefferds, who has been a student of Swami Khecaranatha since 2007. Previously, she taught another form of meditation for over 30 years. Her fulfilling experience with Kundalini Meditation inspired her to make a deep commitment to this practice and to become a teacher in Swami Khecaranatha's lineage.
Swami Khecaranatha is the director of TrikaShala/Sacred Space Yoga Sanctuary at Rudramandir in Berkeley. He is an authentic adept and lineage holder of Tantric Shaivism in the Shaktipat Lineage of Bhagavan Nityananda and Swami Rudrananda.
