Self-inquiry Training

Shiva Process Self-inquiry is a powerful method of meditation created by Swami Shankarananda & Devi Ma. The practice of Self-inquiry has been honoured by ancient and modern sages as an instrument of Self-realisation. Not only that, it is also a method which brings wisdom into daily lives. Proper use of Shiva Process Self-inquiry will revolutionise and enliven every aspect of life: career, relationships, health and spirituality.

Who we are

What is an Ashram?

Ashram’s originate in India, and are traditionally the home of a sage, Guru or mystic. People come to an ashram seeking spiritual guidance, and to discover and deepen their connection with the inner Self. Ashram’s are often residential, and also offer programs to the public.
