Who am I?

My name is Jyotir. Five years ago I had a moment of remembrance. Alone in a dark retreat, in the basement of an abandoned building on a desolate dirt road in the highlands of Guatemala, I stopped projecting an image of self— I simply allowed, and witnessed, the self that flowed effortlessly through me. It wasn’t the orgasmic peak of blissful union towards which I had imagined I was heading; it was a mind-numbingly simple experience of effortless being.

I recognized this effortless overflowing as my natural state. No teachings, methods, or ideologies were needed. Full expression of my own being required only that I stop impeding its natural flow, and allow presence to express itself through me uninhibited. In surrender to this, I made a vow to streamline my life into a prolonged channeling session in which I flooded the world with my own true essence.

That vow led me into service. For four years I have been co-creating and maintaining safe containers for others to dive deep into their own magic. In exchange, these communities have witnessed, allowed, and supported me as I’ve integrated each newly remembered layer of my being.

As I deepen into myself, my relationship to the practice changes. Sometimes I teach, sometimes I retreat, sometimes I question what I'm doing with this life. Through it all, Self-Enquiry has guided me ever more deeply into my own experience of Truth.

The Blog

The Consciousness Experiment began as a documentation of my interaction with the Yogic process. It has become a documentation of my journey of healing, growth, and expansion. As I experiment with consciousness, truth, love and the human condition, I share here my insights, revelations, oversights, and tribulations.

Through the writing process, I bring more of my own awareness to aspects of my journey I might otherwise overlook. I hope as well that others will be inspired to connect and to reach out with and for support, because we’re all in this together!
