Ishan Tigunait

Year Long Meditation

Rudra Yaga is the quintessential group practice in the yogic and tantric traditions. When we participate in group practice it links us to a living tradition. At the heart of Rudra Yaga is sacred fire—a fire that embodies the spark of willpower, determination, and intelligence within us. Ishan Tigunait explains the importance of Rudra Yaga and how this master practice of the Himalayan Tradition can transform all of us by tapping into the essence of prana shakti, the healing force.
