Swami Shankardev Saraswati - bigshakti.com
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, I treat chronic physical and psychological diseases by combining western medicine with yoga, yoga-tantra, Ayurveda, and other systems of self-development. I am a co-founder of www.BigShakti.com with Jayne Stevenson. 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. After attaining my medical degree in 1976, I traveled to India to study at the Bihar School of Yoga, where I remained for 10 years. During this time I wrote several books on yoga and yoga therapy that are still in print. I returned to Australia in 1985 to research the physiology of yoga at the University of New South Wales, completing a Master of Science degree in 1990.
