Shraddha has been a co-director of the Laughing Rainbow Mystery School since 1995. In the tradition of mystery schools, it has been a profound exploration of energy, awareness and meditation - a burning away of all that is not needed, all that comes in the way of being an open channel, a ‘hollow bamboo’.
Working in close partnership with British shaman and mystic Dheeren Gibbard and Chetna Lawless, she has published several books and card-packs designed for self-exploration, consciousness and meditation. These include The Lyme Game, Colour Rays: the Breath of Love, the Flower Band, the Mauve Band Cards, the Ocean Band Cards and the Earth Chord Cards - all of which can be found on the Laughing Rainbow website.
Shraddha understands energy – where it is held and how it can be loosened and released so that your life can be more juicy and fulfilling. Using her vast experience and all the techniques at her disposal, Shraddha tunes in to where you are and helps to bring you closer to your own flowering.
Shraddha was born in Mumbai, India where the mystic and the everyday are closely woven. Her father was a seeker, and her grandmother was a Theosophist and a follower of J. Krishnamurti so it was normal to talk about subtle energies, Ascended Masters and other-dimensional phenomena at Sunday family lunches.
Her family moved to New York in her early teens and after an eclectic education at University, she began travelling. She spent long spells in Arcosanti, Arizona, Alaska and Japan, where she encountered Osho and Golden Cobb - the creative force for the Laughing Rainbow Mystery School. She had found what she'd been looking for.
Soon she moved to Lyme Regis, England, to begin her intensive training in the mystery school where she is now a Co-director. She still travels widely, often focussing on Earth Mysteries - notably in New Mexico, Greece, India and Ireland.
In her shamanic practice, Shraddha blends her innate mysticism with 'core' shamanism. She was trained in shamanism by Chetna Lawless and completed a comprehensive 2-Year Teacher Training with Sandra Ingerman.
Shraddha is a highly experienced Reiki master and teacher and a Colour Ray master and teacher. She has over 20 years of experience with massage, bodywork and healing. She has an ITEC (Distinction) in Holistic Massage and has created a synthesis of Swedish massage, deep tissue, neuro-muscular therapy and shiatsu into her own unique style, using whatever is necessary for her client's healing.
She now alternates between living in Lyme Regis, England and on the magical volcanic island of Lanzarote, where she paints, writes and teaches Shamanic Journeying and Medicine for the Earth.
