"The teachings through Sivani open us to beauty, connection and the ever mysterious wonders of our souls beyond our little boxes. 

What keeps me coming back? The community and a healthy, wholesome, supportive place to belong to and participate with."

 
Chaitanya

"I really enjoy Sivani’s teaching style because it is so down to earth. The examples she is giving to explain very complicated questions are so clear and logical that even I as a beginner don’t feel lost in that wealth of new information. I love her enthusiasm, sincerity and integrity and completely trust her guidance."
