Life for a caterpillar in the chrysalis is merely the start of the journey.

Traveling on your way during this workshop, you’ll focus on the joy of your own transformation to come, and celebrate your colorful wings as you fly freely in the happiness of Being Never Mind.

In this fun and inspiring workshop, you’ll strengthen your inner being by taking responsibility for yourself and letting go of any self-judgment. The permission to be who you truly are will arise from your own internal love, allowing you to attain freedom from self. What a unique opportunity to witness your deep growth. At the beginning of the workshop, you’ll immediately feel the liberating results. And by the end of the four days, just like that butterfly, you’ll experience a new way of being you.

OVERVIEW

The Never Mind workshop will inspire in you, self-responsibility and the permission within. Expect to have a great time! For starters, you’ll all receive the nametag, “MYSTIC” to enjoy the sense of freedom from any identity of self. While you’re here for the four days, you’ll be encouraged to playfully experiment with yourself.

During the workshop, everyone is asked to not make eye contact or speak with people in or outside of the workshop. You can make eye contact with Shiv, but not speak to him. Any questions, feelings or thoughts you may have that you’d like to share with everyone you can write down and put in the Question Box. Shiv will address them during the evening talk session.

Healthful and delicious vegetarian, organic meals will be served. (Please let us know of any dietary restrictions.) The act of eating will be a meditation in itself, as you savor each bite and sip, fully taking in the aromas, flavors and textures, without indulging in thought.

If you haven’t read Shiv’s The Seed of Nothingness, yet, please do! It’ll deepen your awareness of him and his teachings, and your experience at the workshop.

Breakfast

8:30 – 9:30 a.m.

Resonance of Spirit

10:15 – 11:15 a.m.

Chanting together is very powerful, allowing you to surrender to the divine oneness of the universe. It is not only about repeating the mantra over and over, but also—and most importantly—receiving the meaning of the words. With right intention and realization, chanting transforms your being. Shiv will explain each mantra in terms of the essence of its meaning and the application to your day-to-day life. The chanting session ends with sitting or lying down and listening to high-vibrational music, enhancing your experience.

Inside the Chrysalis

11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

This is the time for you to be alone out in nature at the river or in the forest, contemplating on your inner self.

Lunch

1:00 – 2:00 p.m.

The Rising Lotus

3:00 – 3:45 p.m.

Everyone will sit in silent meditation together with Shiv, to invoke the Buddha within.

The Joyous Buddha

4:00 – 5:00 p.m.

Your creativity will soar in this session. You’ll be painting from the heart without any goal, relying on feelings and your deep inner self.

Dinner

5:30 – 6:30 p.m.

Talk with a Mystic

7:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Shiv will discuss questions and comments from the Question Box, guiding you more deeply into the journey of Never Mind.

ABOUT SHIV

There is nothing about me as such that I have to state in words. A rose is being a rose and the butterfly that visits the rose is simply being a butterfly. The beauty is in the eyes that is observing and witnessing it. I have surrendered to this simple beauty of life. I am sharing my essence by being myself around you and my humble joy in being myself around you perhaps will make you experience the comfort of being yourself around yourself, if you call me a friend, that perhaps will hold a definition about me. I do not want to be misunderstood and bounded with titles, all I have are these moments in this experience of life across the cosmos and all of my being is thankful to the universe for letting me experience the joy of its creation.

Shiv is a mystic of life and an independent speaker of consciousness. He has lectured and given transformational guided meditations in the US for years. He is the creator of “Nabhas” The Celestial Constellation Meditation. Through this Meditation one can activate and align the neurons of the brain with the Constellations of the Universe. He is also the designer of Dance Meditation Transformation (D.M.T.).

3 days with you has been more beneficial to me than many years in therapy!

“Unlike anything I have ever done for self-care and advancement in my spiritual awareness, I decided to try the consecutive 5 days and I feel like I am healing trauma that I have been holding since birth. Each day an epiphany…. lighter, calm, feeling like I am in slow motion at times with a deeper appreciation of life treasures that we seem to overlook. I told Shiv “3 days with you has been more beneficial to me than many years in therapy!” You must try this to understand your fullest potential. ”

Meeting Shiv allowed me to see the mental patterns that had been blocking me for years.

“Meeting Shiv allowed me to see the mental patterns that had been blocking me for years. I felt his ability to guide me in connecting my heart with my head really shifted things for me, since for years it felt like my intellectual head had overdeveloped leaving me feeling emotionally empty. ”

Shiv provides clarity on how we may walk the path to spiritual liberation.

“The Seed of Nothingness reveals the utter simplicity inherent in Every thingness. In this book Shiv explores how our attitudes, motivations, projections, and even our spiritual practices can bind us to an ego-centered version of spirituality. The mindsets and heart-sets he offers provide clarity on how we may walk the path to spiritual liberation. ”

-Michael Bernard Beckwith
Author of Spiritual Liberation and Life Visioning and Founder of AGAPE Spiritual Center

 

Get on your magic carpet.

“I absolutely LOVE Shiv’s Dance Meditation Transformation. It is like nothing I have experienced before. When he says, “Get on your magic carpet” you are in for the ride of your life! The music is so invigorating, it actually takes over my body and I can fully release all my tension. I leave feeling relaxed yet energized. I plan to make this part of my weekly routine. Thank you Shiv for creating something that is so simple, yet has so much profound effects on my mind and body. ”

-Susanne Frilot
Founder of The Healing Trauma Conference
