In January 2011 he first met his beloved guruji Mooji. Since then, Mooji’s clarity and love has opened the doors to Advaita (non-duality) and Vicara (self-inquiry). His loving and constant directing confirms that all we need to do is to open up to the peace and the silence which underlies everything alive and is inside us all.
ShivaRam’s classes allow students to connect intuitively with their inherent truth.
His lifelong interest in the relationship between body, mind and soul has led ShivaRam to an alignment-specific, precise teaching style. To this end, he strongly emphasizes the power of breath and inner observation. Further, he joyfully shares with students the teachings of his beloved guru Mooji, who embodies effortless, grace and a good sense of humor.
ShivaRam sees his teaching and practice as therapeutic teaching students to honor the physical body and respect its desire to find balance and harmony. By truly understanding ourselves as an energy antenna between earth and sky, we learn to harness the mind and identify with a space and silence beyond words. This is peace and it is our birthright.
