The Shakti Kriya Program is a 2-day non-residential program, 2 hours per day, that allows you to experience the powerful Shakti Kriya – a profound spiritual and purifying technique that works with rhythms in the body, unlike the Sudarshan Kriya that harnesses the power of the rhythms in the breath. One learns more about the Shakti Chakras or energy centers in our subtle body, and also how they relate to the five elements, different types of sounds, etc. The program also contains profound meditations. This program is an advanced level program, and those who have completed at least one Advanced Meditation Program are eligible to register for this program.


What is Shakti Kriya?

Shakti Kriya is a purifying yogic technique that allows one to connect with and tap into the vast reserve of energy that lies dormant within us, known as ‘prana’ or ‘kundalini shakti’, the ‘life-force energy’. This technique has profound purifying effects on the nervous system and our subtle body, and it can also help one to further one’s Sudarshan Kriya and meditation practice. Many people often wonder, how can I be more effective? Where can I get more energy to do all the things I want do in a day effectively? The Shakti Kriya allows one to become familiar with and tap into the source of energy that we all carry within us. For example, there is an enormous amount of energy in a single atom, but only when it can be harnessed is it useful. Shakti Kriya allows one to harness the enormous amount of energy that lies dormant within us.

How is it different from Sudarshan Kriya?

Shakti Kriya is not similar to Sudarshan Kriya; it is a different technique altogether. In Sudarshan Kriya, the breath is used to access an inner rhythm and tap into an inner energy. However, in Shakti Kriya we use the whole body to get in touch with the deeper innate rhythm within us. The Shakti Kriya helps us to rejuvenate our home practises and dive deeper into the self.
