Kashmiri Shaivism is considered the highest, most exclusive, and most transcendent Yoga, representing a fundamental outlook on the universe. The first steps on this path are practices that are already advanced. This course represents a rare, accessible presentation of Kashmiri Shaivism and provides extensive theoretical explanation as well as practical initiations, involving a deep spiritual transmission. Simply reading (svadhyaya) these very intellectual texts creates an incredible spiritual resonance, a meditation opening Sahasrara, the crown chakra. This is a non-dual philosophy that proposes a very quick spiritual evolution for the aspirant and differentiates many states of higher consciousness and samadhi, or void.
After this workshop, there is only one way to go! Practice, practice and practice, start with us! Join the Kashmir Shaivism Intensive Practice Retreat!

We are very happy to provide video recordings for most of our workshops, but we strongly recommend attending them LIVE and using the videos as support. As the method used for the recordings is Zoom, we don’t guarantee high-quality performance. Recordings are available for one week after the workshop has finished.
The founder of Agama Yoga, Swami Vivekananda Saraswati, or “Swamiji” to his students, is a passionate and dedicated teacher of the authentic lines of Indian and Tibetan Yoga, which are rapidly becoming lost in today's "spiritual marketplace." In 1998, Swami Vivekananda took full sannyasa vows at the Kumbha Mela in India, at which time he was ordained; his diksha guru bestowing upon him his new and famous name, which means discriminating insight. Although restrained by a modesty that usually prevents him from discussing it, Swamiji has reached high states of spiritual realisation and samadhi. From this place of knowing, he offers a proven path to spiritual accomplishment in well-articulated concepts. He is one of the few Western Tantric Teachers well-versed in Kundalini Yoga and Gnostic Christianity, and he specialises in the intensely spiritual Tantra Yoga of Kashmir Shaivism. Swamiji’s guidance is felt in many ways at Agama: from in the classroom, presenting Yoga as a living science, based on common sense and joy; to administering various healing techniques, as a practitioner of chiropractic and other healing methods; to lecturing on esoteric Yogic subjects in weekly Satsang; or discussing personal life problems with pupils, possibly in their own language (as he speaks five). Swamiji inspires by personal example and examples from history, quoting uninterruptedly from scores of ancient texts and spiritual masters – all with a great sense of humour and unmatched character.
