Be Here Now, Ram Dass’ monumentally influential and seminal work, still stands as the highly readable centerpiece of Western articulation of Eastern philosophy. It explains how to live joyously 100 percent of the time in the present, whether your outer circumstances are luminous or mundane. He founded the Love Serve Remember Foundation, whose mission is to preserve and continue the teachings of Ram Dass' guru, Neem Karoli Baba.
On February 19, 1997, Ram Dass suffered a near-fatal stroke, which left him paralyzed on the right side of his body, with expressive aphasia limiting his ability to speak, along with other challenging ailments. Although the aftereffects of the stroke vastly altered his day-to-day life, he resumed teaching.
Before he passed away in December 2019, Ram Dass resided on Maui, where he shared satsang and, kirtan, and where he could amplify the healing process in the air and waters of Hawaii. His final projects included a documentary entitled Becoming Nobody and a musical collaboration with East Forest.

After a 4-year battle with cancer, Anita fell into a coma and was given days to live. As her doctors gathered, attempting to revive her, she journeyed into a near-death experience (NDE) in which she was surrounded by unconditional love and deep wisdom. In this place, she was given a powerful truth: heaven is not a destination, it is a state of consciousness.
During her NDE, Anita was given the choice to return to her physical form or to continue on into this expansive new realm. She chose to come back. When she regained consciousness, the cancer that had caused her organs to shut down began to heal. To the amazement of her doctors, she was free of countless tumors and cancer indicators within weeks.

She has been a featured guest on The Dr. Oz Show, Fox News, The Today Show, CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, the National Geographic Channel, The Pearl Report in Hong Kong, Headstart with Karen Davila in the Philippines, and many others.
Today, Anita, who lives in the United States with her husband Danny, continues to share her incredible story and lessons internationally. Dying to Be Me has sold millions of copies worldwide, has been translated into 45 languages, and has been optioned by Hollywood producer Ridley Scott to be made into a full-length feature film.
Prior to her cancer diagnosis, Anita lived in Hong Kong and worked in the corporate world for several years. She was born in Singapore of Indian parents and grew up speaking English, Cantonese, and an Indian dialect simultaneously.

He has been writing and teaching full time with The Enneagram Institute as well as on his own since 1991.
He's co-authored with Don Richard Riso five bestselling books on the subject, including The Wisdom of the Enneagram and Personality Types.

The RHETI has been used by numerous Fortune 500 companies.
Russ has a solid background in science as well as in studies of philosophy and religion and has approached his work with the Enneagram holding both perspectives.

Raja Choudhury, a spiritual teacher, award-winning documentary filmmaker, and TED speaker, aims to disrupt human consciousness and awaken each of us to our true evolutionary potential using his deep knowledge of Kundalini Shakti, Tantra, and Indian Wisdom seen through the lens of neuroscience and modern psychology. In the past year, he has emerged as one of The Shift Network's most popular new teachers, initiating and guiding over 2,700 students into the mysteries of Kundalini Shakti, Shiva-Shakti Tantra, Karma, and the Third Eye. Raja’s own shift occurred in 2006 when, while a creative director in New York, he underwent a life-changing Kundalini awakening that rewired his system and opened up a new universe for him.
Raja initially started life as an architect from London’s Architectural Association and then went on to become a Webby-winning digital creative director in New York, where this awakening occurred. Since then, Raja has created numerous documentary films on wisdom and consciousness, including Spirituality in the Modern World with Ken Wilber and Traleg Rinpoche; Yoga: Harmony with Nature (the official international film for the first International Day of Yoga), The Quantum Indians (winner of the 2014 National Film Award of India), The Modern Mystic, and Guruji Amritananda. He’s currently making a film for PBS on how Indian Wisdom first came to America.
Raja gave a TED talk at Bangalore on Indian Wisdom for Today’s World in 2012 and a TEDx talk in 2015 on Yoga. His videos on Kundalini, Shiva, the third eye, and meditation are very popular on YouTube. In his own spiritual quest, he was initiated first into Kriya Yoga in 1998, and went on to take deep initiations into Raja Yoga, advanced Kriya Yoga, and then finally, and most importantly, Sri Vidya and Maha Vidya Tantra. Raja is also a student of Trika, Qigong, sacred geometry, neuroscience, history, esoteric traditions, and the mind. His teachings are a syncretic blend of Eastern and Western philosophies and techniques. Raja lives in New Delhi with his wife, daughter, and a cocker spaniel called Max.

Itzhak Beery is a leading international Shamanic healer, teacher, speaker, community activist and author of three Amazon bestsellers The Gift of Shamanism, Shamanic Transformations, and Shamanic Healing: Traditional Medicine for the Modern World. He was initiated by his Andes and Amazonian teachers and was also trained by other elders from South and North America, Inuit, and Siberia.
Itzhak bridge the sacred indigenous traditions those elders entrusted to him with a relevant present-day shamanic approach to living in our digital age. For over 24 years Itzhak has worked to fulfill the Inca’s Pachakuti - The Condor and the Eagle prophesy, which calls for a new period of correction of time, of cultural cooperation, exchange, and integration between the industrial mind-centered Western world–the Eagle–and the ancient indigenous Earth and the heart-centered world–the Condor. It calls for the return of the feminine nurturing energy and the rise of human peaceful and harmonious consciousness, which is seen as the only sustainable solution to our modern day societal and environmental problems.
Itzhak is the founder of ShamanPortal.org, The Andes Summit and co-founder of the New York Shamanic Circle.

Tom Pinkson was born in the heart of New York City in 1945. The death of his father when he was four years old set him on path of exploration that began with psychosomatic illness, and later juvenile delinquency, but eventually took him to the far reaches of the Amazon jungle, the Andes mountains and to an eleven year apprenticeship with a group of Huichol Indian shamans in the Sierra Madre of north central Mexico. Seeking deeper truth about the mysteries of life and death, he sought out and found numerous shamanic “Medicine” teachers who initiated him into totally different realms than those from which he had come.
During this time Tom also earned three college degrees, including a Ph.D. in psychology. His doctoral dissertation, “A Quest for Vision,” described his successful work with heroin addicts in the early 1970s using a wilderness treatment program that included mountain climbing, river running, snow camping, ski touring and vision quests in the High Sierra. The quests continue to this day, forty years later with people coming from all over the United States to join him on these powerful experiences of solitude and adventure in the back country of Yosemite. From working with drug addicts, he went on to help start the second hospice program in the United States, offering support services to the terminally ill. From there, he was invited to join Dr. Jerry Jampolsky at the Center for Attitudinal Healing in Tiburon California to work with children facing life-threatening illness which he did for thirty two years.
Tom went on to create his “Recognition Rites Honoring Elders" along with a CD recording using music and song to open hearts and minds to the wisdom of deep being. Walking in two worlds, the shamanic world of indigenous spirituality, and the Western world of a psychologist, consultant, teacher, sacred storyteller, and ceremonial and retreat leader, Tom serves as a bridge-builder, bringing what he calls “The Teachings of the Elders” into practical applications within the modern, urban setting. From major corporations to pediatric oncology units within prestigious cancer treatment centers, from the academic world to rites of passage work with children, adolescents and adults, the dying process and subsequent work of grief, mourning, and rebirth, Tom’s work has had dramatic impact in enriching people’s lives, described in his three books, SHAMANIC WISDOM OF THE HUICHOL: MEDICINE TEACHINGS FOR MODERN TIMES, Do They Celebrate Christmas in Heaven? Spiritual Rite of Passage Teachings from Children with Life-Threatening Illness, and FRUITFUL AGING: MEETING THE CHALLENGES — MINING THE OPPORTUNITIES.
Tom is also the founder and director of a non-profit, spiritually based community, “Wakan,” which offers a variety of programs and services helping people find and remember what is sacred in their lives. He has appeared on international TV and radio, written numerous articles, and produced video and audiotapes on attitudinal healing, spirituality and shamanism.
Tom has two grown children, three grandchildren and lives with his wisdom-woman wife Andrea, in Northern California.

Karen Newell is an author and specialist in personal development with a diverse body of work that rests upon the foundation of heart-centered consciousness. Her lifelong interest in ancient cultures and sacred sites catalyzed her drive to understand the purpose of our existence. She became fascinated with esoteric spiritual texts and sought the complete story of humanity’s collective history.
In her search for answers, it became clear that first-hand personal experience is crucial for deepening one’s understanding. Inspired, she enrolled in hands-on experiential courses to investigate and develop such skills as meditation, lucid dreaming, astral travel, telepathy, remote viewing, self-hypnosis, and forms of energy healing, which validated that we all can develop these abilities. Most surprising was that this exploration led to unexpected personal and spiritual growth.

Using Sacred Acoustics recordings and other techniques, she teaches how to enter and engage with your inner world to connect to guidance, achieve inspiration, improve wellness, and develop intuition.

Dr. Daniel Foor is a teacher and practitioner of practical animism who specializes in ancestral and family healing and in helping folks learn to relate well with the rest of the natural world. His focus on the ancestors sources from his training as a doctor of psychology and licensed marriage and family therapist, from the guidance of his teachers in earth-honoring traditions (e.g., European pagan paths, Native North American ways, Mongolian shamanism, and West African Ifá/Òrìṣà tradition), and from two decades of implementing ancestor and earth reverence in his own life.
Since 2005 Daniel has guided hundreds of ancestor trainings, rituals, and talks in eight countries and helped many others to reconnect with their ancestors through personal sessions. He is the author of Ancestral Medicine: Rituals for Personal and Family Healing (Inner Traditions, 2017), and he trains others in the practice of ancestral lineage healing.
Daniel Foor's doctoral research in psychology focused on the use of shamanic healing practices by clinical mental health professionals. Training as a therapist, living in other societies, and immersion in different lineages of ritual work all inform his kind and non-dogmatic approach to ancestor and earth reverence. Although Daniel draws inspiration from lineages of established practice, his public offerings and ritual methods aim to be culturally inclusive, and he holds work for cultural and earth healing to be inseparable from spiritual teaching and practice.

A third-generation intuitive and prolific writer, Sonia Choquette, has written books that have sold over a million copies worldwide, including her New York Times bestseller, The Answer Is Simple.... Love Yourself, Live Your Spirit.
In working with people for more than 32 years, Sonia insists that the sixth sense is natural to us all. Whether it’s those “hunches” or “feelings” or “vibes,” everyone has them; unfortunately, most people dismiss or ignore them and sadly miss the benefits.
With the onset of the changing world we now live in, Sonia emphasizes that using our intuition is no longer optional. Working with and strengthening our intuition is becoming more and more fundamental to our ability to live harmoniously with ourselves and others in the new world order.
Paying attention to the sixth sense, learning to listen, to trust it, and to train oneself to call on its guidance — these are the challenges facing six-sensory people trapped in a five-sensory culture.

Patricia Albere is at ground zero of an evolutionary stream of spiritual awakening. Just as meditation can be an opening to an individual awakening, Albere originated the Mutual Awakening Practice – a 21st century spiritual practice that empowers us to enter into new dimensions of relating and expanding consciousness together. One in which we learn to go beyond individual psychology and transformation into a new space of mutual awakening or ‘inter-being’ or ‘we-mysticism’. In the world of spiritual enlightenment, people who have experienced awakenings almost always experience them individually – eyes shut, in quiet solitude. The spiritual paradigm of the last three thousand years has been singularly devoted to our individual salvation or solo enlightenment.
Patricia Albere, uniquely experienced a sustained awakening that resulted in a different kind of realization, a dual realization that happened with another. That shared awakening points to a new dimension of consciousness and an extraordinary possibility for humanity’s future. Patricia’s work creates a powerful and palpable field of shared consciousness and love that reveals previously unimagined human potentials that can move humanity far beyond the limits of personal growth or self-development and into mutual awakening.
Patricia is the founder of the Evolutionary Collective, an internationally known contemporary spiritual teacher and bestselling author of Evolutionary Relationships: Unleashing the Transformative Power of Mutual Awakening and Mutual Awakening: Opening into a New Paradigm of Human Relatedness. Her unique discovery of the essential components that create an awakened ‘we space’ is transforming our understanding of what is possible in the space between us.

Gangaji shares a simple message: This is an invitation to shift your allegiance from the activities of your mind to the eternal presence of your being. As a teacher and author, Gangaji travels the world speaking to seekers from all walks of life. She shares her direct experience of the essential message she received from Papaji and offers it to all who want to discover true and lasting fulfillment. In the 1970s she began exploring deeper levels of her being and took Bodhisattva vows, practiced Zen and Vipassana meditation, helped run a Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Center, and had a career as an acupuncturist in the San Francisco Bay area. Despite her successes, Gangaji continued to experience a deep and persistent longing for fulfillment. She pursued many paths to change her life including relationship, motherhood, political activism, career, and spiritual practice, but even the greatest of her successes ultimately came up short. In the wake of her disillusionment, she made a final prayer for true help.
In 1990, the answer to her prayer came unexpectedly, taking her to India and to the meeting that would change everything. There on the banks of the river Ganga, she met Sri H.W.L. Poonja, also known as Papaji, who opened the floodgates of self-recognition. In this meeting, Gangaji’s personal story of suffering ended and the promise of a true life began to flower and unfold. Today, Gangaji travels the world speaking to seekers from all walks of life. A faculty and author, she shares her direct experience of the essential message she received from Papaji and offers it to all who want to discover a true and lasting fulfillment. Through her life and words, she powerfully articulates how it is really possible to discover the truth of who you are and to be true to that discovery. She is the author of The Diamond In Your Pocket, You Are That, and Hidden Treasure: Uncovering the Truth In Your Life Story.

China is a native Texan and prize-winning author of nonfiction, including Love Cemetery: Unburying the Secret History of Slaves and Longing for Darkness: Tara and the Black Madonna. She is currently completing a documentary film, Resurrecting Love, sponsored by Fractured Atlas. The documentary grew out of the controversy over access, race, and private property that was ignited by the publication of Love Cemetery. Statewide hearings followed. Though a potent national controversy remains over cemeteries with the remains of enslaved people, Texas cemetery law was changed as the result of her book.
China received the prestigious national Courage of Conscience Award from the Peace Abbey at the Harvard Foundation. Students, debaters, and choir members of historically black Wiley College (home of The Great Debaters) and Marshall, Texas volunteers sparked the interest of predominantly white East Texas Baptist University students to join the work. China’s documentary gives us a little-known avenue to work on healing racism and a radically new way to teach American history.
China was also the first woman Assistant to the City Manager of Dallas, Texas, and Director of the Citizen Assistance Office, and she organized the first National Conference of Citizen Assistance Offices in the U.S

Layering traditional kirtan with instantly accessible melodies and modern instrumentation, Krishna Das has been called yoga’s “rock star.” With a remarkably soulful voice that touches the deepest chord in even the most casual listener, Krishna Das — known to friends, family, and fans as simply KD — has taken call-and-response chanting out of yoga centers and into concert halls, becoming a worldwide icon and the bestselling Western chant artist of all time. His album Live Ananda (released January 2012) was nominated for a Grammy in the Best New Age album category.
KD spent the late ’60s traveling across the country as a student of Ram Dass. In August 1970, he finally made the journey to India, which led him to Ram Dass’ own beloved guru, Neem Karoli Baba, known to devotees as Maharaj-ji. Given the name Krishna Das, KD began to chant as part of following the path of Bhakti yoga, the yoga of devotion.
He took solace in music, finding peace and strength in both his Bhakti yoga practice as well as in such heroes as Ray Charles, Van Morrison, Steely Dan, and Bruce Springsteen (whom he laughingly calls “the Bodhisattva of New Jersey”). KD also co-founded Triloka Records, a California-based label specializing in world music, releasing such artists as Jai Uttal, sarod virtuoso Ali Akbar Khan, and legendary jazz musician/composer Jackie McLean.
In 1994, KD started to lead chanting at Jivamukti Yoga Center, NYC, with an ever-growing audience of yoga students that has led him to chant with people all around the world. In February 2013, Krishna Das performed at the Grammy awards in Los Angeles, which was streamed online to millions of viewers. The award-winning film One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das, which has been shown in over 100 U.S. cities and in more than 10 countries, is available on DVD everywhere.
KD’s 16th album, Peace of My Heart, released in October 2018 on behalf of the Kirtan Wallah Foundation, offers nearly two hours of deeply moving, meditative, and artfully restrained new recordings born out of a request from a yoga teacher who works with children on the autism spectrum. Forgoing the ecstatic tempo changes so common to temple-style kirtan, these five new tracks move slowly and deliberately. The song-to-song steadiness is both striking and soothing, and as emotionally impactful as ever.
“The chanting just hits you and you want to be a part of it,” KD promises. “That’s the point of this whole thing. That’s what cuts through all the ‘stuff.’ You get lit up. You don’t have to know what it means.”
