Welcome to Śabda Institute!
Teachings and practices that foster the cultivation of a body that functions optimally, a mind that is clear of misperceptions and a heart that radiates harmony
Diamond Body. Crystal Mind. Golden Heart.
This institute began as an experiment to test the hypothesis that the highest esoteric teachings of the nondual Eastern traditions could be applied very directly and practically in one’s day-to-day life. Ordinarily, we think of spiritual practice as something that is done outside of one’s mundane existence, or as an embellishment to it. This often creates a fissuring of one’s reality, where the teaching does not change, shape and radically transform moment-to-moment experience. Instead, it remains just out of our reach.
The Śabda Institute took shape in the proving of the hypothesis. The highest teachings are indeed applicable without regard for our unique life circumstance. We need not become divorced from the vagaries of life to practice spirituality. In fact, the highest practice occurs in the trenches and on the frontlines of life, where the teaching is relentlessly applied and embodied. Here, you will find extensive tools and resources to do just that.
May your journey be fulfilling in every way and may you find what you’re looking for.
