Charlotte is a journalist from Paris, who dedicated the last 15 years of her life to searching for answers with many masters, travelling to many ashrams, and as a natural byproduct through her work, she had the chance to interview well-known Yogis and Tantrikas. However, it wasn’t till she met Bhagavan and spent six months in Shri Kali, that she understood her quest. Now with more ease in her life, she resides in the bustling city of Paris where she teaches this system and has just recently studied in depth, a unique form of massage that she will be offering soon.

Lilia is a long-term student of Bhagavan’s from Moscow, who has been living in Goa for many years with her young daughter. Starting out for the first year in Shri Kali, she did only the asana sequence without diving in to any of the deeper studies, as her daughter was only a year old at the time. This gave her a foundation of steady happiness to live her life. Currently she is deepening her wisdom in the philosophy and hopes to go forward with her studies in Sanskrit as well as translate Divine Initiation in to Russian.

LeLa and Tillie are two Shri Kali students that have recently joined forces to bring the Kaula Tantra Yoga system to Seattle.  Tillie, in only a month’s time, knew she was meant to share the system and went back to Seattle and immediately had a large group of practitioners. LeLa, also only here for a month, struggled at first with allowing herself to relax in this system.  Suddenly one day, the system began to work for her and she fell in love.  She knew at that point that she would also have to share and so she returned to Seattle and within one week, she had met Tillie and they created Shri Kali Seattle.  LeLa will also be returning to Shri Kali with a retreat group and then she will return to Seattle to continue sharing this system until Tillie returns.

Torsten is a man who grew up loving math and science, eventually becoming a nuclear physicist. But at some point he realized that as much as he loved science, it wasn’t giving him the answers about self and why we are here. He found Shri Kali in his search for answers and in his search for a cure for a physical ailment that he had had from childhood.  Now he lives a much more relaxed life and continues with his work in a much more relaxed way, also sharing yoga and continuing his practice and study of Tantra.

Mette is a dedicated Shri Kali student who spends half of the year on a small island in Denmark with her beautiful family, gardening away and sharing this system with the summer tourists. She spends the other half of the year at Shri Kali. She came, not looking for more than a certificate and then was off to travel the rest of India.  She never made it on that trip and stayed at Shri Kali for six months and has been returning every year since.  She found answers to health problems that doctors said were hopeless and discovered a whole new way of experiencing herself and the world around her.
