Self-inquiry Meditation Training

The Shiva Process Technique

I never had me any gnosis

Until I did the Shiva Process 

Self-inquiry Training:
The Shiva Process Method

Have you ever fallen into sadness, anger or anxiety and found it difficult to shift yourself? Are your relationships difficult and you don’t know how to fix them?  Have you ever found yourself brooding about the past or fearing the future and not living in the present? 


If these inner world states sound familiar you are certainly not alone.  Without the right strategies the mind can easily become susceptible to negative patterns.

What is Self-inquiry?

Self-inquiry is a time honoured yogic practice for investigating the inner world and learning how to uplift thought and feeling. Swami Shankarananda (Swamiji) with Devi Ma’s unmatched assistance has developed a brilliant form of Self-inquiry called the Shiva Process. Forged from his own sadhana and at the feet of his Guru, Swami Muktananda the Shiva Process carries the grace of the lineage. 


As Swamiji says of his revolutionary method: ‘Proper use of the Self-inquiry will revolutionise and enliven every aspect of life:  career, relationships, health and spirituality.  It is a secret technique of the yogi who lives in the world, and it give him an enormous edge’.


The Ashram Mount Eliza offers training in how to use the Shiva Process, go deep into your inner world and allow love, wisdom and energy to flow.
