Welcome to the Heart of Consciousness
Kuṇḍalinī Meditation Center

Kuṇḍalinī Sādhana is ancient spiritual practice in the nondual tradition of Trika Shaivism. It allows individuals to deeply experience their own direct, inner connection to the Divine. This practice focuses on awakening the powerful transformative force called kuṇḍalinī — the divine energy that is always present within every human being. When it flows through us, kuṇḍalinī can wash away our deepest tensions, expand the flow of creative energy, and eliminate our misunderstandings about our true nature. As our individual heart merges with the divine heart, our total unity with God is revealed

The teachings of Heart of Consciousness originate from a śakti transmission lineage. The transmission of a living spiritual energy is a vitally important component in the awakening of kuṇḍalinī. Saktipata is defined as the descent of grace. This is God’s power, awakening in us, creating a longing to find a teacher who can provide us with that same energy on a continuous basis to direct and empower us to find our own liberation.

In engaging with a śakti transmission guru, we are coming in contact with a palpable transmission of that liberating force, which we can only feel because it already exists within us. There is a direct conveyance of spiritual energy from teacher to student that gives the student a concrete experience of the vital force that connects all things and binds us together as one. Śakti transmission is a catalyst for profound spiritual unfoldment, culminating in Self-realization. Swami Khecaranatha, the spiritual leader of Heart of Consciousness, has been a śakti transmission guru for more than forty-five years.


The mission of Heart of Consciousness/Sacred Space Yoga Sanctuary is to provide the opportunity for a broader audience to benefit from the practices of our tradition, lineage, and teachers—by exploring ancient tantric practices, encouraging translations of ancient texts, and working with academic experts in the field. We seek to offer complementary programs to support
the total well-being of body, mind, and spirit.
