Satsang with Swami Shankarananda at The Ashram Mount Eliza

Weekly Satsang

Swami Shankarananda (Swamiji), has been holding satsang every Saturday for over 25 years. The event is dedicated to the wisdom teachings of great beings and realised masters from different traditions around the world. It offers an opportunity to meditate in the company of fellow seekers, and to open to a higher possibility in our often busy and mundane lives.

Self-inquiry Training

Self-inquiry is a powerful method of meditation, which 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. It is a secret technique of yogic practice, and it gives an enormous edge in the world.

Swami Shankarananda’s long-awaited spiritual autobiography, Ganeshpuri Days: Memoirs of a Western Yogi is now available! Order yours as a Kindle, Hardcover, or Paperback.
