Shakti Durga is the founder, spiritual head and inspirational leader of Shanti Mission (Peace Mission), with its head office based in Australia. The not-for-profit charity operates a wide-variety of projects and programs with the sole aim of creating an age of peace on earth: inner peace and peace between people. Shakti Durga is a living ‘Guru’ which means she helps to literally ignite the spirits of her students (See Guru FAQ). Her teachings focus on the development of spiritual, mental, emotional and physical health and wellbeing with the goal of igniting the divine spark and cultivating the guru within everyone.
Shakti Durga has developed a unique approach and philosophy to spirituality based on years of studying with many teachers as well as the various faiths, traditions and religions. This has included study of Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and the Muslim faith as well as numerous esoteric or ‘mystical’ paths. The former lawyer (barrister) is very skilled at communicating, explaining and de-mystifying the ancient teachings and practices from east and west. Like many people, she holds a strong view that we are much more than just the ‘physical’ world around us. The spiritual philosophy she has developed, which underpins everything done at Shanti Mission, has 8 Pillars. She explains her approach through her blog, books, CDs and videos on her YouTube channel. She has also created a series of personal development seminars, which are offered by mostly by donation, called The Path of Ease and Grace and The Higher Guidance Series. These seminars help people to understand the world around them, beyond the physical, and provide practical and useful tools and techniques to become an empowered person and create more love, joy, happiness, well-being and peace.
Ignite Your Spirit
After experiencing phenomenal results from energy healing for chronic bronchitis, Shakti Durga studied and then taught various energy healing modalities, including Pranic Healing, Reiki and Crystal Dreaming. From this work, she went on to develop a healing modality called Ignite Your Spirit Therapy which combines energy healing with meditation, mindfulness and mentoring/counseling. The approach aims to literally ‘ignite’ the client’s spirit and helps them with everything from depression and anxiety to physical illness. Group healings are available from Shakti Durga or individual sessions are available from therapists around Australia and the USA.
Respect for all Paths
Fundamental to all of Shakti Durga’s teachings is a belief that all paths are valid paths to the divine (see a blog on this topic here). In fact, she often says ‘surely God would not have been so boring as to only create one path to the Divine,’ She hopes to awaken people and help them to find their own ‘path.’ This is why she invites people to study with her or through Shanti Mission and its many programs for a day, a week, a year or a lifetime. She encourages people to always listen to their heart when making any decision in life. She also encourages people not to blindly accept what they are taught or learn, but instead it’s important to constantly ‘road test’ these things in our own lives.
