About the Author:
Dr Swami Shankardevananda"I read my first book on yoga and meditation when I was 13 years old. The Third Eye by Lobsang Rampa tells the story of a young boy who enters a Tibetan Monastery and undergoes rigorous training to become a spiritual adept. This story awoke a deep longing and set the course for my life. Today, I am a western medical doctor, yoga Acharya (authority), yoga therapist, psychotherapist, author and teacher. My work integrates western mind-body medicine and psychotherapy with eastern methods of mind-body development and awakening consciousness. In my medical practice and through Skype and telephone consultations I treat chronic physical and psychological diseases by combining western medicine with yoga, yoga-tantra, Ayurveda, and other systems of self-development. As the co-founder and director of Big Shakti, I collaborate with Jayne on the company’s evolution and especially our online educational tools. Many of our guided meditations and courses derive from techniques that I have developed over 40 years of live teaching and running a yoga therapy medical practice. I also provide direct support to students through group webinars and private consultations."
