A letter from integrative neurologist, Dr. Kulreet Chaudry
From December 2016-March 2017 I stayed with Amma at Peedam following an unexpected urging in my meditation to quit my job and come to Peedam with a one-way ticket. I’ve never done anything so “irresponsible” in my life. When I arrived at Peedam, Amma called me and asked if I had quit my job. When I replied yes, Amma simply said, “Good,” and then didn’t speak to me again for three months.
During that time, Shanti Mission was having a retreat and I repeatedly found myself accidently in their company. Much to my surprise, many members were reading my book, The Prime, and I noticed Amma kept intertwining me, Ayurveda and Shanti Mission. I didn’t know who Shanti Mission was at the time, I just knew that whenever I was around them I experienced a tremendous amount of unconditional love pouring out of my heart.
During those months with Amma I had many mystical experiences—I would say it was an initiation of sorts. To my surprise, I found myself amongst Shanti Mission in three of those out of body experiences. Each time during the experience I would ask Amma, why am I seated with Shanti Mission and Amma would just smile.
In March, Amma suddenly punctuated my visit to Peedam by asking our entire family to move to India and head the Ayurvedic Centre. I was a bit dumbfounded at first at the prospect of moving to India, but I knew if Amma was building an Ayurvedic Centre it would have global implications. Amma had been given the ancient Siddha Medicine records, written on pieces of bark and palm leaves in a dialect that is now extinct. These records contain the secrets to immortality and many of the siddhis. This was the first time the Siddha records would be made accessible to the world in millennia.
When I returned home, I began to have clear experiences of the Siddha records and found myself experiencing the human body more as geometry with light flowing through it rather than blood and bones. As I dove deeper into my meditations, I realized that if we had a spiritually advanced group undergo some of these Siddha treatments, it would change the world. With that realization, again Shanti Mission returned to my meditations.
Fast forward to today as my husband and I are living in India; we had no intention to launch the outpatient Ayurvedic Clinic until after Navrathri. There were weeks of work to be done before we had anything in place, but in typical Amma fashion it just suddenly happened that three Shanti Mission members wanted Ayurvedic consultations in September so we decided to launch the clinic despite not knowing how we were going to procure herbs.
Shortly after the launch, Shanti Mission had a retreat over Navarathri and I had the privilege of seeing many of the members in the Ayurvedic Clinic. I suddenly realized that the visions from 18 months prior were actually manifesting and there I was in the middle of Shanti Mission just as I had seen before. What I felt in the pulses of Shanti Mission members was extraordinary and something I only felt in 1-2 people a year prior. Because the upper chakras were already so open and clear, some simple physical realignment would create the capacity for an enormous amount of energy to flow through each person as an open channel. What was also extraordinary was that each member of the group held the consciousness of the whole—something I’d never felt before.
My experience with Shanti Mission members in the Ayurvedic Clinic, coupled with my prior experiences in meditation gives me great confidence that there is something very big being organized within Shanti Mission and Amma’s Ayurvedic Centre that will impact the world. I think it’s nothing short than a plan to quickly bring the world to a new state of consciousness. I also feel that the knowledge and skills taught in Shanti Mission greatly enhance the traditional therapies we offer in Ayurveda and together we are the opposite sides of the spiritual coin, so to speak.
I realize that Amma has already set all of this in motion from long ago and we will only know what Amma truly has planned as it unfolds, but I feel a great calling to support Shanti Mission in their physical transformation as they fulfill their spiritual manifesto on behalf of the world.
In love and service, Om Namo Narayani,

A letter from Dr. Beth DuPree
“Healing occurs when an individual is able to find peace in their heart. As a traditionally trained ‘western medical’ breast cancer surgeon, I base the treatment of the physical manifestations of breast cancer on time honored, proven oncologic surgical principles. Alleviating the physical disease of cancer with surgery, chemotherapy and / or radiation therapy is simply the beginning of the healing process that a soul experiences when faced with a breast cancer diagnosis.
For years I have embraced the art of eastern healing modalities along with my western medical care and have found acceleration in the process of healing within my patients. I have always open to additional forms of healing and have had the great fortune of being introduced to Shakti Durga and Shanti Mission Harmony Centre by my older sister Susan who lives in Australia and is herself an IYS (Ignite Your Spirit) certified therapist.
From the first minute when I met Shakti Durga, I could feel the love the emanates from her heart and once I experienced the power of healing that occurs through IYS therapy, I could not wait to share it with my patients, friends and family. Quantum healing occurs when you can tap into the divine and help an individual heal at their core or souls level.
I have personally witnessed the transformations in my patents with healing occurring before surgery, intra-operatively and years after a cancer diagnosis with Ignite Your Spirit Therapy. As a physician and healer, I have always believed that what ever it takes to help a soul to heal is what we need to offer our patients. Whether you are receiving a healing session from Shakti Durga herself or any one of her incredibly well trained IYS therapists, you will be blessed with a truly life transforming experience.”

I Can Walk Again – A Physical Miracle
“I was unable to stand or walk for more than 5 minutes due to L4-5 prolapse disc and severe canal stenosis. This caused acute nerve pain plus weakness & numbness in both feet and a lack of balance. I’d had a CT scan and was on a 4 week waiting list to see a Neuro Surgeon. Shakti Durga did work on the L4-5 bulging disc and nerves. In the healing I could feel my spine strength and elongate. Before the healing I had about 20-30% sensation in my feet. The next day I had 80-90% feeling back in my feet and I could stand and walk, with a huge reduction on pain, so I could easily stop taking Endone. A real miracle took place in this healing. Endless gratitude to Shakti Durga and IYS Therapy.”

Allergies Cured in One Session
“I have been suffering from allergies since I was a young child. They have caused stomach issues, chronic sinus infections, headaches, and many other problems. Recently diagnosed with a histamine intolerance, my body doesn’t break down histamine properly so it builds up in my body. This causes many symptoms such as rashes, an increase in asthma symptoms, insomnia, etc. When the histamine levels reached a level in my body I had a major allergic reaction; once requiring hospitalisation. Living like this was very scary; I never knew when this allergic response would occur. In one healing session with Shakti Durga she identified the energetic cause in my body. She gave me tools to use each day to prevent symptoms and to heal my body. Since that day I have been free of all of the symptoms. The daily rashes are gone. I am sleeping better. My asthma has improved, my stomach feels better than it ever has and I am no longer living in fear that something I eat could send me to the hospital.”
Recovery from Cardiac Operation
(after the healing with Shakti Durga) I felt a lot more relaxed and comfortable than I have felt since the surgery. Today I felt more comfortable at Cardiac Rehab than I have felt before and I achieved new goals.
My Cardiologist said my blood pressure was quite a bit lower than it has been, we were very happy about that! The echocardiogram results are good, the pressure through the valve is now only 8, prior to the surgery it was 80.
My acupuncture therapist commented that he found my pulse today to be very strong and very precise! Before my treatment I mentioned that I’d had a healing with you yesterday, he was amazed that it had improved so much in a week! My therapist has been treating me for about 12 years so knows my pulse very well. I was smiling to myself because I knew that my pulse had improved a lot because of Your Divine Healing. He did comment to me at the end of the treatment that I always respond well to treatments because of the Energy work that I do.”
“Shakti Durga was available and dedicated in our greatest time of need – our long awaited unborn IVF baby had high risk of abnormalities. Shakti Durga offered several profound IYS healings that took us on a soul-level journey of remarkable insights, clearing of past karma, forgiveness and grace. Shekinah was also there to support us, as my body physically purged the toxins and energy was cleared.
The final healing with Shakti Durga continued through the night in dream [whereby the baby’s soul visited to thank us for our service, say goodbye and that she was leaving so we could welcome in a new healthier, brighter soul]. The next morning our results came in two weeks early, everything was perfectly normal and we now have a beautiful happy and healthy boy.
Shakti Durga demonstrated her compassion, empathy, honesty, integrity and Masterful powers of healing over this three-week period. I am eternally grateful to have her in my life.”

“I suffered for 18 months with 2 herniated discs, excruciating pain, unable to do any exercise or even bend and was in deep grief from my brother passing away. I had one healing with Shakti Durga after which the grief literally lifted from me and my back pain dissipated. My back is feeling better day by day, I am back doing yoga and the pain has almost gone. As a consequence I feel better emotionally as well as physically. My back had shown no signs of improvement whatsoever despite having weekly treatments of kinesiology, chiropracty, acupuncture, and pain medication. Absolutely miraculous.”
Helen, Spiritual Teacher, Sydney
Miraculous Relationship Renovation
“My first healing with Shakti Durga transformed a difficult relationship situation. Before the healing I was feeling emotionally drained, lost in the situation and without support or resources to make decisions about my next steps. In the healing I felt the confusion and mixed energy of the people involved lift from my body and mind. I felt like my lost self was rescued and lovingly restored and the energy draining me was returned.. I felt lighter, and was able to think more clearly. I became emotionally calm and I felt supported. This helped me to easily decided my next steps. I felt I was back to my old self again – only I was a better self. Thank you Shakti Durga. The healing was a wonderful and priceless gift.”

Chronic Psoriasis Cleared After 30 Years
“Prior to IYS therapy I was suffering with chronic psoriasis for 30 years. I had seen many top specialists, tried countless treatments (including chemo therapy drugs and three times my lifetime dosage of UV light). Prior to receiving a series of IYS therapy treatments the psoriasis was the worst ever. Painful, burning, bleeding, covering most of my body. Following IYS the skin cleared and I experienced huge transformations and freedom emotionally, physically and spiritually.”
Justine, Dog Walker, Sydney
Various Physical Applications
“Ignite Your Spirit therapy has not only brought about deep physical and emotional healing for me, it has provided a bedrock for spiritual transformation.
I had my first IYS healing eighteen years ago, and from that first healing I noticed many differences. Following is a minute summary of some of the healings I’ve experienced in that time:
- A twenty-year allergy to cats that was healed in one session;
- A miraculous healing of a badly sprained ankle, where the entire foot, which swelled immediately, lost all swelling and pain within minutes.
- Headaches, toothaches, back aches – all dramatically reduced in a rapid time.
- Alleviation of blocked ears while flying…
- Accidents, bites, stings, scratches, bumps and bruises.”
Sioux, Teacher and therapist, Cooranbong
No More Isolation
“One healing with Shakti Durga released long held blockages that had kept me feeling separated and always the outsider my whole life. I feel more easily able to relate to people and less fearful of challenging relationships. I have noticed a significant shift in the way I feel and how people respond to me. A most profound and noticeable change. I am more able to engage with the world in a positive way. Thank you Shakti Durga.”
Diane, Marketing Manager, Sydney
Healed Relationship with Mum
“My relationship with mother had always been filled with love but it was often tumultuous and seemed like there was something missing. I often felt that we were very closed off from each other…Within the healing we did a lot of forgiveness work based on challenges experienced in a previous lifetime. I felt a lot of lightness flow into my relationship with mum. Since this healing our relationship has improved immensely and the void that was once there and unexplainable has dispersed. I’m forever grateful.”
Arlene, Teacher, Cooranbong
My Life Changed Significantly After IYS Therapy
“I had come to a point where I was worried for my health and wellbeing and I was considering going to the hospital. I had an opportunity to see Shakti Durga because I was really worried. I had not been feeling well for some time. Since my healing with Shakti Durga I have been lucky enough to have great health and wellbeing since. I’m very grateful.”
Leigh, Customer Concierge Consultant, Cooranbong
“I was unexpectedly triggered to recall a childhood trauma and was struggling with some disassociation for a short time. Shakti Durga gently took me through this time, and assisted me to release myself from this. I felt safe, nurtured and completely respected. With weekly follow up sessions with Stellar Maya for 5 weeks, it was like the issue had never occurred. In my younger years I ‘d had extensive counselling for this and was unable to release the pain, I just suppressed it. The pain no longer exists, I have not had any further issues. Absolutely life changing therapy, I’m extremely grateful.”
Mel, Community Mental Health Worker, Cooranbong
Opening Heart to More Love Than Ever Before
“After many years in a safe traditional religion my soul began to experience heart breaking separateness and confusion. I began to search out a deeper connection to the Divine and looked around for peace. I took the opportunity to have an IYS healing in the hope that I could clear anything that was holding me back from peace. The healing I experienced has profoundly changed my life and opened doorways to a greater awareness of love – than I had ever felt before. Hidden core beliefs around my worthiness to experience the Divine in my life were melted away and left me in a state of joy. The dissolving of ingrained thought forms that I had long held within my being in a very unconscious way allowed a new clarity that transformed how I related to the divine and others in my life. It is such a beautiful gift to experience this amazing modality and to grow in more love and devotion as the path to the Divine unfolds. IYS continues to heal me in many ways and I am so grateful that I found it.”
Carmel, Official Community Visitor, NSW
Group Healing Mind Blowing
“After meeting Shakti Durga and receiving a healing from her this week, I can now see why her therapists are so grounded, real and so spot on as energy healers. I absolutely love all the work she has created and the way her therapists work. Having a group healing with someone with that level of capacity to clear has been mind blowing.
I’m half way through their Ease and Grace courses and they are the most practical energy healing courses I’ve ever come across with a fantastic framework that caters for those who don’t believe they can sense or see energy through to healers who have been doing this kind of work for a while like me, and I’m getting heaps out of it and it’s advancing my skill set so rapidly.”
Helena, Ancestral Healer, Brisbane
My life had already been transformed with healings and The Path of Ease and Grace, yet within still remained a deep well of sadness. Shakti Durga in one huge sweep reached in and extracted this sadness accumulated through many lifetimes. It was as if the well had filled with light. It was no longer made of bricks, but a channel of support from Mother Earth. Since that day I have never sunk into deep sadness again. I visit sadness, of course, when tragedy happens in life, but now the well is shallow and it is a temporary visit. My life is full of joy.”
Colleen, Teacher, Nowra
From Depression to Vitality
Becoming quite depressed through a relationship break up, I found Shanti Mission and through the Path of Ease and Grace seminars and Ignite Your Spirit healing my life turned around. I feel empowered in my relationships which have become happy and balanced (yes, even with the “ex”) but especially I found myself, I am a happier and more vital person than I had thought possible.
Adi, Spiritual Teacher, Cooranbon
“In 2007 I received a healing from Shakti Durga that subsequently changed my life. I had lived my life with severe depression, had lost my memory 3 times and also had been diagnosed with PTSD. I experienced thoughts of self harm, self torture and suicidal ideation daily since childhood. Shakti Durga found a wound in my sex chakra that was repaired and the world as I had known it suddenly became calm. I was overwhelmed and in a little shock, she called Jyotishakti and asked her to sing to me how much she loved me, she helped me open to self love. That night Parvati gave me another healing to clean up more of the energy that had been held in place my whole life. I was free. I am eternally grateful and have devoted my life to this miraculous therapy.”
Bhadrakali, Child and fertility health nurse, IYS therapist and Spiritual teacher, Cooranbong
“Returning to Australia from firstly a retreat in Bali, and then a quick stop in South Africa, I woke the second morning after arriving in Australia, in bed with my eyes open but unable to move my body. Could feel myself breathing but unable to move, so I lay there patiently trying to move just any part of my body, even a toe would have been good. I called on Guru and was able to roll off the bed and crawl into the shower hoping the warm water would spark some life into my muscles. Eventually got myself to hospital and somehow found myself on the phone to Guru. She said laughingly “what have you done to yourself Jai Ram?” I said the Doctors couldn’t find anything, and Guru replied, “come see me tomorrow and we’ll have a look”. I miraculously made it to the Abode and after a profound healing with Guru with the help of Ganga, Guru said “home and get some sleep Jai Ram”. I did just that, the healing worked and the next day I was up playing a competitive game of football. Om Guru.”

Alleviation of Fear and Anxiety
“My life has been transformed by IYS healings. Joy, love, empowerment, trust and creativity have replaced depression, anxiety and fear. Miraculous!”
Jennifer, Artist/teacher, Cessnock
On Meditation with Shakti Durga
“I have been attending Satsang (meditation) at Cooranbong since abt 2004 and have always found the subject of the meditation to be appropriate any of the life challenges I am experiencing at the time.
Just last Sunday Shakti Durga took us on a journey connecting with us with our guardian angel, asking for help to break through blockages and asking for help here in this dimension (not to be blind to the offer of help fm others).
I am always amazed (I really should say in awe) of how much the healings and meditation so closely relate to my problems. I have attended most of the Ignite your Spirit sessions and was initiated a few years ago so I have an understanding of energetic healing and I am very aware of the existence of our soul and other dimensions, and our beautiful heavenly guides.
I had what I thought would be a really awful meeting with my manager (I had been experiencing bullying and intimidation from her and others) and was expecting the worst, however following Satsang I remembered to call on my guardian angel. Help also came from support fm a very kind Human Resources Officer.
I felt at peace with myself at the meeting and whenever she said something which would normally make me feel at a loss for words while she made out that my problems were unimportant I was able to speak directly, making her more fully understand my situation.
Although my problems are far from over I was at least able to face her without fear and not feel alone.
So thank you, thank you, thank you, dear helpers, guides and to my dear Shakti Durga.”
