Experience Shiva within yourself. The Journey with Shiva is not just another workshop or lecture. This journey is about feeling the connection of Shiva within yourself. It’s about your inner connection. The Shiva Pujaris will create an atmosphere where your feeling for Shiva can awaken more. Imagine being in an atmosphere as one group, all feeling the connection to the deity. This is what the journey is all about!

You are the Consciousness, you are the atma. So surrender the rest of what you don’t need to the Feet of Shiva, he knows how to destroy it. 

Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda

Did you know?

Lord Shiva is a great yogi. Sitting in deep meditation, he reminds us that the mind has to be calm. He is centred within and shows us that everything we are looking for on the outside can be found within ourselves. As he is the Lord's greatest bhakta, he can also help awaken bhakti in our hearts so we can move closer to God.

    What to Expect

    The Journey with Shiva is a perfect companion to our Maha Shivaratri festivities. This event is open to everyone who would like to know more about Lord Shiva, the role He plays on the Bhakti Marga path, and how to connect more deeply with the wisdom He imparts. As a participant, you'll enjoy the following special activities centred around Shiva.
