In these strange days many of us are searching for greater purpose and connection in our lives. We may find ourselves yearning and struggling to strip away what is not working and lean into the deeper wisdom within us to find our purpose, fulfillment, and ease. It is only through a greater understanding of our highest selves that we discover the path to the life experiences and relationships we seek. This Self represents unity consciousness, oneness, freedom, creativity, and abiding bliss from within. 

Join Vedic scholar and master spiritual teacher Acharya Shunya for an illuminating one-day online workshop exploring ancient teachings for self-discovery and soul fulfillment. Acharya Shunya strings together brilliant insights from The Bhagavad Gītā, a 700-verse conversational poem originally written in Sanskrit by the Vedic sage, Vyasa. The Bhagavad Gītā, translates to Song of the Spirit and it contains a collection of timeless wisdom applicable to people of all ages, backgrounds, and faiths, and provides a clear pathway through mental confusion, back to our true Self. According to The Bhagavad Gītā, to be sorrow-free we must discern between the true self and shadow self.

Drawing upon her Vedic Knowledge, Acharya Shunya shines a light on the personal transformation process from which you can see through your shadow and begin stepping into your greater potential every day. The true self is limitlessly creative, blissful, and boundless in nature. Archarya Shunya shares how to pierce your suffering mind and the shadows it casts to experience your true self.

Through a mix of online lecture, guided meditation, and interactive exercises, Acharya Shunya leads you to unfold ancient knowledge from the Vedas and The Bhagavad Gītā to appreciate a truer sense of Self. Learn techniques from Vedic psychology to set aside your own mental traps and free your psyche of its self-shaming and other-blaming thoughts, attachments, and delusions. These teachings enable greater authenticity in all your interactions and will help you navigate towards the life your higher self wants you to lead.

Awaken your boundless self, write your own life script, and soar in your own consciousness.

Please note that this one-day workshop will be hosted live online. Instructions on how to join will be included in your event confirmation email. If you need additional assistance finding or joining the event, please email publicprograms@ciis.edu.
