“I want to thank you so much for the healing session you presented at the Huntington Memorial Library in Oneonta. We went through the tapping exercise 2 times, and I concentrated on 2 different concerns in my life. One was an emotional concern about my daughter going away to college this fall and the other was a physical problem that happened nearly a year ago due to an accident. Both are now resolved due to that 1 healing session! I am amazed that the physical problem has gone away. I have been to all sorts of doctors for tests, referred to various specialists, and put on 2 medications for the injury to my neck. I’ve had MRI’s, physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments etc. The ortho Dr put me on a nerve med and a muscle relaxer. Nothing has offered long term relief. After just 1 session with Swami, my chronic pain is gone. I am no longer taking meds, using heat or icing to relieve the pain. I was still in treatment, and the next step was to give me an injection in my spine, but I have cancelled my appointment. I am looking forward to taking some of Swami’s classes, and will refer anyone I hear of who suffers chronic pain to him. Thank you Swami, I am forever grateful, many Blessings to you.”

“It gives me joy to express my experiences with Swami Sada Shiva Tirtha as a teacher, counselor, life coach, mentor and spiritual advisor. I have had several golden opportunities to have been in Swami’s presence during his group process and teachings, and have observed powerful transformations. During monthly coaching sessions, Swami has provided me with practical and individualized recommendations, insight, wisdom and knowledge in many areas of my life: business, career, professional, personal, and family life. I have referred clients to Swami; all have confirmed and shared their stellar experiences. 
In gratitude.”

“His books have enriched and harmonized my life. His simple, profound and inspirational peace and paradise workshop had a deep impact on me, family and friends – changing the course of our lives. An inexplicable feeling of bliss is felt in his presence and his guidance infuses all aspects of life with a sense of joy and purpose…I thank God for introducing this very, very special person into my life.”

“Swamiji’s Peace and Paradise workshops do exactly what they promise…It was a simple, beautiful and life-changing experience for me and my family. His innate sense of peace and goodness will not fail to touch you. His simple, grounded wisdom will not fail to lift you. Truly a simple man of God who “walks the talk” – there are few spiritual leaders like him left in this world – who do not take refuge in arcane texts and rituals but who can connect deeply with the modern day human being in an idiom he understands and can empathize with. Truly, he is a guru for Modern Times.”

“I am really enjoying taking the Ayurveda intro telecourse with Swamiji. It is very profound and seems to be filling up something that was missing deep inside myself. I am also enjoying Swamiji’s deep understanding, dedication, and patience in his teachings.

“I’m so grateful to have participated in the tele-course last night…the concepts and sharing resonated deeply. Afterwards, as I closed my eyes, I experienced that blissful state of being.”

“Earlier this year he put me on my own personal road to wellness with some great counsel, great suggestions and great enlightenment. He listens and he cares. Swamiji took pains to completely understand my situation and needs, and he was and is there with me, every step of the way. He has great wisdom and great healing “technology” to share.”

“As a teacher for many years in art, dance, aerobics, and now yoga, I thought using the songs to state the message was incredibly ingenious! What a thoughtful and fun way to get ideas across. It was a hoot! It also kept the atmosphere light and good hearted. Thank you so much!”
