Swami Chetanananda is a teacher in the lineage of Bhagavan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri. Born and raised in the Midwest, Swami’s life was transformed, when he met his guru, Swami Rudrananda (Rudi), in New York City in 1971. Since that day, he has devoted himself to realizing his highest potential and to empowering others to realize theirs.

In 1997, during a trip to Kathmandu, Nepal, Swami Chetanananda met Lama Tsering Wangdu Rinpoche and discovered for himself that the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism and Himalayan Shaivism shared a common origin. Since then, he has been studying with Lama Wangdu and other Tantric masters.

Swami Chetanananda conveys his teachings in direct and accessible terms, making them relevant to everyday circumstances. He offers simple, practical techniques for working with creative energy and explains them in ways that can be practiced by anyone. The fundamental method he teaches uses the power of the breath to circulate the inner energy and intensify its flow so that tensions and obstacles are dissolved, leading to a more refined awareness.

To complement his spiritual practices, Swami Chetanananda has a working knowledge of a range of healing systems and methodologies, from the time-honored traditions of hatha yoga and acupuncture to the more modern techniques of homeopathy and osteopathy. He is the author of several books on spirituality including Dynamic StillnessThe Breath of GodOpen Heart, Open MindChoose to Be HappyThere Is No Other, and Will I Be the Hero of My Own Life?
