Dynamic Stillness 1: The Practice of Trika Yoga


Dynamic Stillness 1: The Practice of Trika Yoga


by Swami Chetanananda

According to the tantric traditions of Buddhism, Hinduism, and Kashmir Shaivism, no aspect of life is to be rejected. Trika Yoga, a tantric method of Kashmir Shaivism, focuses on releasing tension and allowing creative energy to flow unobstructed throughout the field of our individual experience.

This first volume of a two-volume set explores in depth questions likely to face a person beginning a spiritual practice. In this volume, Swami Chetanananda explains three aspects of spiritual practice with clarity and depth: work with a teacher, private meditation, and service—becoming an instrument of the Divine.

"Swamiji's insight into the core issues [of Kashmir Shaivism] underscores his grasp of the spirit of the system as a whole. For Swamiji, Kashmir Shaivism is not only a living philosophy, but also the philosophy of life." --From the Forward by Navjivan Rastogi, Department of Sanskrit, University of Lucknow, India

About the Author

Swami Chetanananda is a master of Trika Yoga practice and a teacher in the lineage of Bhagavan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri. He is the abbot and spiritual director of The Movement Center, based in Portland, Oregon.

Swamiji works with students to awaken their creative energy and support them in the process of its unfoldment. He teaches Dynamic Stillness practice, a direct transmission meditation in which teacher and student share the experience of the underlying unity of all things.

Swamiji has a profound grasp of Kashmir Shaivism and the other philosophical and practice traditions he has studied. He conveys their essence in direct and accessible terms, making them relevant to everyday circumstances. He offers simple, practical techniques for working with creative energy that can be practiced by anyone. The fundamental method uses the power of the breath to circulate the creative energy (kundalini) and intensify its flow so that tensions and obstacles are dissolved, leading to a more refined awareness.
