Sessions are generally between 1-2 hours, but they have been known to go on for 3+ hours on occasion!
Let me know if you have any particular time constraints at the start of the session, but even so I recommend allowing for a minimum time of 45 minutes with the addition of 15 minutes once the session is over for rest.
Shaktipat Awakening Transmissions as I offer them are an effective means to rapidly bring about and stabilise enlightenment/awakening. Through a Grace transmission of Divine Light I help facilitate the dissolution of the false ego-identity and held concepts which are the cause of suffering, revealing, or unveiling one’s true nature as unbounded awareness itself. The Divine Light, often described as the feeling of the loving divine mother penetrates and dissolves any delusions and opens up the heart and mind to the liberating truth of “I am consciousness”, “I am the Self”.
I also offer a post-awakening Shaktipat which can powerfully help with the integration and ‘clean-up’ process.
This is a hard question to answer. It very much depends on what you want to get out of the sessions with me. But generally I see rapid change in people who have committed to this process in an ernest way.
Some people come to me to help them ease their general suffering and unease with life. Many come because they are at the end of their seeking journey and are ready to awakening to their nature of awareness-consciousness. Others come in search of support post-awakening – which in many ways in my favourite work as I feel there is so much need for it at this time.
Amount of sessions just really depends on where someone is and what they are coming to me for. Some I meet regularly for weeks or even months, others it’s just a few sessions and then we’re done. Then there are those that just come sporadically when something particular is coming up.
But as far as awakening goes… There can be no guarantees of timings or timescales as it’s a uniquely personal journey for each and every one of us. Some people who are ready and at the end of their seeking journey they stabilise in abiding Nonduality after only one session and have had just a couple more to reach Unity Consciousness. But for most it will take more sessions and transmissions. Generally I’ve found that within a year of regularly receiving shaktipat transmissions (often a mixture of one-on-one and global/group transmissions) most people will reach Unity Consciousness. Many times it’s much faster than that, with the majority of people having just a handful or two of sessions with me. But of course nothing is ever guaranteed in this realm and each person has their own timing…
I give a post-awakening shakitpat that differs from the standard shaktipat as it works more to dissolve any left over knots and densities from traumas and stresses, and ground and balance the nervous system of the body. That in conjunction with spiritual mentoring can help enormously with the process of integration and stablisation, particularly if you’re experiencing some roughness.
In many ways the mentoring post-awakening can be vital as acclimating to awakening can be challenging sometimes, especially when it happens rapidly, as it often does with this shaktipat transmission. Having someone to connect with who has experience of this process and can help you orient to it is enormously helpful and invaluable. My aim is to walk hand-in-hand and mentor you through this beautiful but undeniably messy process, helping to clear up any doubts and confusions or still held assumptions and conditionings.

Shaktipat Awakening Transmissions are a universal energy of Divine Light and as such are without location. There’s been great success in receiving the benefits of this Shaktipat Awakening Transmission, whether it’s been in-person, through a Skype/video chat, or even remotely with a photograph. Distance is no barrier. I’m generally located in the UK at the moment and so when arranging a session note that my time zone is London Time (GMT).
Sit quietly, open & receptive and… relax, as if you were getting a massage or sunbathing on a beach. In your heart give this divine light permission to work as needed.
After the session I recommend taking at least 15 minutes to sit quietly or meditate so that the energy of the Shaktipat can integrate in the body.
This Shaktipat Awakening Transmission is a gentle but powerful transmission of spiritual energy that opens the crown chakra and dissolves the deep-seated I-thought. No ill effects have been reported. Some people will experience a coolness in their head, pressure or maybe even the presence of a white light. Some also experience things such as energy in the body, opening of the heart, calming of the mind. There are also those that experience nothing particular during the transmission, so whatever your experience is or isn’t it doesn’t reflect the effectiveness of the transmission at all. We each get what we need.
Everyone’s experience is uniquely different, but as with any spiritual energy work there is a possibility of the releasing of old traumas and built up stresses which we have often been avoided or protected by the ego/mind. So after receiving the shaktipat for some there may be a period of adjustment (or ‘purification’) where it can be sometimes intense or even unpleasant. Of course, as with everything, “This too shall pass”.
However people with a history of severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar are not recommended to receive this Shaktipat Awakening Transmission.
If you have any questions or concerns please email me to discuss them. Also please read the Disclaimer.
Yes, group meetings are all recorded and by attending them you agree to have your voice and/or image used for the public sharing of Satsang. It’s your responsibility if you don’t wish to be recorded, you can turn your camera and mic off and submit questions through writing or the chat window. For the Shaktipat portion I do require your video to be turned on.
1-on-1 sessions are also record unless otherwise requested by you. I generally don’t keep a copy for very long but they’re recorded for mainly two reasons.
The first reason being that you can request the audio file if you wish. I just ask that you keep it for your own personal use and don’t share with anyone else. I don’t give them out routinely as I don’t like to encourage people to over analyse what’s being said but instead trust that what needs to be heard in the heart will be heard.
The second reason is for the purpose of my ‘Conversations & Questions’ series (http://beyondimogen.com/categories/articles/conversations-questions/) which comes from transcribed and edited snippets of conversations taken from questions in the comments of social media, emails, 1-on-1 sessions, group meetings or in-person conversations. I without a doubt take out any personal or sensitive content, even changing the questions to be broader and more universal where appropriate. But often these conversations have a universality to them that can be really helpful to more than just one person. All is used with the utmost care, sensitivity and consideration, and where applicable I will inform you when something is being released publically.
Money and spirituality has long been a testy subject, particularly in the west where we don’t have the same social norm of supporting spiritual activities like they have in some other cultures.
I offer my sessions on a donation basis so I leave it to you as to what value you put on this work.
I see money as an energetic exchange that shows your serious intention/earnestness, and in return you’re getting my time, energy and undivided attention – and of course there’s the small fact that it’s really helpful for me to pay the bills, just like everyone else! My feeling is that the amount donated should be fairly comfortable to pay, but at the same time isn’t just a throwaway amount. In the broader sense it’s really a matter of what you value in life and to me the value of realising one’s true nature is incalculable. If you don’t want to pay then that’s your choice, like I said it’s all on a donation basis and I will never turn anyone away due to lack of funds.
I offer free & live global Transmissions once a week (Wednesday’s 7pm UK time) on our YouTube Channel (schedule dependant). I’ve had reports from people all over the world of the benefit of theses Global Transmissions. That being said, the one-on-one Shaktipats are definitely more powerful and directed. The global Transmissions are not a replacement for one-on-one Shaktipat Awakening Transmissions but can be used in conjunction with your normal meditation practice, with some having them playing while they meditate daily.
Yes, we do work together with students sometimes. More often than not we’ll each work one-on-one with a student but have the student meet with both of us. We each have our own very different but complementary flavour of expression and style of pointing that supports the realisation and understanding of the awakened view. In many ways we are the masculine and feminine aspects balanced together and students have commented that they enjoy working with both of us because of this.
If you’re interested in having both of us present during the shaktipat just ask and we’ll see what we can do (no promises here sorry it’s just based on availability).
Yes I also offer group Shaktipat Awakening Transmissions and Satsang/Q&A. Currently I have a Bi-Monthly recurring zoom group on the 2nd and 4th Sunday’s of the month at 3pm UK time. More info on how to join can be found on the ‘events‘ page.
If you have a group that would be interested in hosting me, get in touch.
