Shakti Durga is a living Guru whose teachings focus on the development of spiritual, mental, emotional and physical health with the aim of creating life transformation. As a Guru, Shakti Durga is a mystical spiritual teacher who teaches liberation and enlightenment from her own direct experience.
She is a gifted and engaging teacher with a humble, authentic, candid and often hilarious style. She sparks curiosity, ignites the spirit and inspires you to believe that life transformation is not only possible, but that you have the tools to make it happen.
Shakti Durga is the founder of Shanti Mission, a multi-faith ï¿½Mission of Peaceï¿½ based in Australia and now expanding throughout the world.
She has created a series of personal development seminars called The Path of Ease and Grace ï¿½ which teach how to have peace and joy in your relationships; look after your own energy body and multi-dimensional self (body, mind, spirit); let go of traumas and addictions; harness your mind as servant instead of master; become skilled at natural manifesting; and grow more fully into the universal hallmarks of spiritual mastery.
There is an old proverb that a day spent with a teacher is worth 300 years on your own. Come experience the wisdom and light of a transformational teacher who can teach not only your mind, but your heart and soul.

ï¿½One of the Guruï¿½s most important roles is to lift people and open their hearts. One of my greatest aspirations is to help my students grow and outshine me and discover the ï¿½Guruï¿½ within.ï¿½

Tony Samara is an expert in the field of meditation, which scientists are now confirming, using MRI or EEG, has a variety of neurological benefits. He believes that illuminating your highest capacities and becoming the greatest possible version of yourself, is a very real possibility.
In the past 30 years Tony Samara has worked with more 35,000 people who have attended seminars, retreats and conferences in 25 different countries.

He has also been interviewed on several radio shows such as the BBC and CBS as well as on Conscious TV (UK), Studio 12 TV (Slovenia), HRT2 TV (Croatia) and Sapo TV (Portugal).
Samara was born in England, and grew up in Egypt, England, and also in Norway. It was in Norway that he discovered the Zen Buddhist Philosophy, which eventually led him to the Mount Baldy Zen Center in California, USA, where he learned the spiritual teachings of Roshi Sasaki. His first spiritual teacher, at the age of 12, was the question - Who Am I? And, over the period of a few years, he immersed himself more deeply into the question. He had the curiosity to explore further the essence of spirituality and hence travelled in many different countries learning much about the various spiritual traditions and cultures, in a non-dualistic and open-minded way.
Whilst making pilgrimages to various sacred sites in India, Europe, South America, New Zealand, as well as in the Pacific Islands, Tony Samara was able to dwell deeply upon the ancient mystery philosophies as well as practical mysticism and work profoundly with the essence of these teachings. Gradually, powerful events opened him up more and more until at the age of 27 he attained Self-Realisation.
Founder of the Samara School of Meditation (SSOM) and the Samara Meditation Foundation (SMF), Samara has also created innovative trainings adapted and tailored for businesses and individuals to help employees relax and eliminate stress from the workplace. Many businesses are catching on and making meditation a part of their corporate mission.

I am passionate about healing love, body and sexuality and I believe it can be done with love and honesty because that is exactly what happened to me. Before becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic I had to heal myself with real love and committed honesty so that I could embrace my power. I learned how to get up close and personal to my own healing so that I could one day share the soul love that I experienced with other people.
I am a courageous soul guide and I help people find authentic solutions for emerging in love and embracing fully your sexuality. My favorite path is through sexuality, partnership and relationships. Since I believe in cultivating soul love this means I am incredibly passionate about healthy relationships. I speak about how sexual practices can help open you up to your amazing life.
A good portion of my life was about loving and connecting to my own healing and then sharing this passion and pleasure with my clients. In my search to discover self love I also had a deep inner belief in soul partnership.
There is nothing more beautiful to me than the connection of two souls. And what I have learned is that couples need sexual practices for intimacy and love that will help build a foundation of truth and trust in their family. It is my heartfelt desire to touch relationships and help couples, partners, and businesses build healthy long lasting love.
I have created the programs and education for Learn it Live to help you express your most amazing self. I want you to own your self worth and embody your "I am" power. It is my mission to help you embrace your sacred divine self and live from your inner truth of abundance. I believe women need to step forwards and lead in relationship but I also feel that men are on a path to discovery. And when we bring the two together amazing manifestation of our dreams can flourish.
As a Sacred O Circle of truth we want to give you the opportunity to live your dreams. So I have developed some of the most powerful empowerment tools for coaching you to become vibrant, alive and abundant in mind, body, spirit and finances.
