Together, Bill & Patricia support you to build a foundation, providing tools for strength in the emotional and spiritual domain, yielding flow and freedom to be who you have come here to be. A life of awakening is not one in which we never fall into a dark valley, it is one in which when we fall, we have learned how to move through it. We develop emotional muscle in order to rise. This is the inner work of the soul.
Bill & Patricia guide you to that which is unhealed, exposing how these hurts and emotions rule our lives. You are able to face yourself, learn to untangle from these aspects that have a powerful impact and influence. In the discovery of new awareness and integration you begin to experience wholeness. Embrace all emotion, letting go of resistance and live in the present moment. With sensitivity, strength and skill, Bill and Patricia facilitate working through levels of trauma, pain, grief and anger in order to guide people to their own divine nature. As these wounds heal, you are able to discover the depths of self-acceptance and forgiveness.
Shunyamurti is the founder of the Sat Yoga Ashram, located in the misty mountains of southern Costa Rica. The ashram includes a wisdom school (Sat Yoga Institute), a research and teaching division on creating self-sustaining spiritual communities (Premaculture), a new approach to healing and transformation (Atmanology), and a meditative retreat center open to people from all over the world. Its mission is to accelerate the transfiguration of human consciousness and contribute to the spiritual renaissance that is fermenting now on our planet.
Shunya became aware of yoga at an early age and was immediately drawn to it. He also wrote poetry, which became a meditative process of discovering from where words and thoughts arose in consciousness. He studied many forms of yoga, including classical Ashtanga Yoga (guided by Baba Hari Dass), spent ten years in a formal Raja Yoga monastic order, as well as intense practice of Buddhist and Taoist yoga, Kashmir Shaivite tantra, Sufi and Christian contemplative prayer, and Kabbalah. He integrated quantum physics, systems and complexity theory, and the non-physical dimension of martial arts into his approach. He underwent initiation into shamanism, including the use of entheogens. Shunya has practiced law, was an investigative journalist and foreign correspondent, a political scientist, earned degrees in philosophy, drama, and psychology, practiced hypnotherapy (and all its permutations, including past life regression), Jungian dreamwork and Lacanian psychoanalysis.
Shunyamurti’s life-long quest for truth and the power of healing and transformation has brought about a deep understanding of the structure and dynamics of the ego, the latent capacities of the soul, and the radiant healing power of the Supreme Real, the One Self. He now functions as spiritual guide, retreat leader, and yogic research director of the Sat Yoga Ashram.
Ric Weinman is the founder of VortexHealing®, a healing art that he re-discovered in a profound ‘vision’, November 26, 1994.
Ric grew up in Queens, NY. He went to Columbia University as an engineering student, and in his sophomore year he transferred into its liberal arts college, majoring in English and getting his BA in 1971. From there, he hitchhiked around Europe, going wherever the wind took him, mostly sleeping in farmers’ fields. He was trying to escape from a deep emotional trauma, and so he barely ate and got very far ‘out of body’. But in his ‘out there’ and starved state, although he lost a lot of his body mass, his nervous system went into a different state, and he rediscovered his spiritual connection. This began the slow journey back in, taking this new inner connection with him.
Ric lived ‘at the edge’ for many years, working odd jobs and day jobs, moving about but living mostly, in Tucson, AZ. During that time he did a lot of meditation and writing. Some of his short stories were published, as well as two books (Your Hands Can Heal, printed in 7 languages, and Breaking the Illusion). It was in Tucson that his ‘psychic’ abilities started to activate, and he began to practice healing. He studied Jin Shin Jyutsu®, cranial-sacral therapy, and practiced his own methods of working with energy, consciousness, and fascia. At that time, he also started to connect inside to various Divine beings, both alive and no longer in the body. His connection to the Divine became his main lifeline.
Ric took a short detour into a Masters program in Computer Science at the University of Arizona, attempting to move into a more secure, mainstream existence, but his heart wasn’t in it, so he left it and returned to his healing work. At one point he began to teach his own healing workshops, which became the basis of his first book, Your Hands Can Heal.
Then, in 1994, his path took a radical turn when, in a profound ‘vision’, he found himself standing in a huge inter-dimensional vortex, and the divine presence within that vortex re-activated his past-life connections to VortexHealing® and the Merlin Lineage. People quickly noticed how powerful this healing art was, and they asked him to teach it to them. In September 1995, he taught the first VortexHealing® Basic Training, in Tucson.
Almost 7 years later, meditating in a hotel room in Colorado, on vacation with his wife and son, his core sense of ‘I’ suddenly disappeared. He had been moved into spiritual awakening by the Divine source of his lineage. This began a new phase for both his personal life and for VortexHealing®. As his own awakening deepened, he realized he was being shown an awakening map that could be used to take VortexHealing® students, step by step, through the same stages that he was being guided through. When the map seemed complete, he wrote Awakening Through the Veils, to share the map with the general spiritual world, along with guidelines for making its journey.

“The spiritual journey does not consist in gaining what a person does not have, but in dissipation of ignorance concerning himself and life, and the growth of understanding which begins with spiritual awakening. To find God is to come to one’s own self.” – Avatar Meher Baba.
No longer the person with its conditioning and history, here now there is only this and the overall feeling is “I don’t mind.” No fear, no push, a great emptiness that is also a rich and all-pervading fullness. Here there is silence, peace and an exquisite sense of joy. Here it feels so light there is no distance, ‘marinating in the self.’ It is as if nothing is happening here yet happening graciously unfolds.
To look back at the dream, the necessary mistaken identity, it seemed like so much happened. Personhood was such psychological suffering. Separation, a feverish, fearful struggle, always restless, dissatisfied, looking outside for love and fulfillment. Now peace, and love reside here.
I have spent thirty years with Avatar Meher Baba in deep devotion. Baba has administered his kiss and his kick, expertly unraveling the ego identity. Longing for the truth and with nothing more to express in this life, I knew I was going to die, not sure if it was the body or the ego, I completely surrendered.
Shortly after, whilst watching Mooji on the net, he pointed, and I said with total conviction, “I am That”. In that recognition I hysterically and uncontrollably laughed for hours. When I could hardly breathe from the laughter and I asked God to help me, the laughter only escalated. The funniest thing, the divine joke was that I knew I had always been that.
I love Meher Baba and Mooji – the brightest reflections of the true self I know. It is quiet here as I experience the bliss and love of the self.
