“You are not who you think you are.” Arguably the oldest religion in the world is Tantra. But Gurudev Swami Rama brought Tantra as a science to the U.S. and considered himself to be a scientist. Tantra sees the mind as our most powerful instrument, but it is also our greatest obstacle. How to work with thought-constructs is key to growing spiritually. We will explore how Tantra as a science is both transformative and transcendent. In fact, you can’t have one without the other, and we often focus more on the technical aspects and ignore the necessary power of Tantra to create a powerful and humane transformation of the ego-self. Let’s see how this ancient science impacts us on all levels if we really are serious about a spiritual practice.

Phil Nuernberger, Ph.D. is a direct disciple of H.H. Sri Swami Rama and was personally trained by Swamiji since 1970. Dr. Phil is one of the few Americans to receive initiation by Swami Rama into the highest levels of the tantric tradition of the Himalayan Sages. With his Master’s instruction and blessing, Dr. Phil has been teaching and initiating others in this tradition since 1972. He was instrumental in helping Swamiji build the Himalayan Institute, and served on its Board of Directors until 1992.

Dr. Nuernberger is author of five books. The most recent are Freedom’s Path: The Dancing Soul, The Warrior Sage: Life as Spirit, as well as, Strong and Fearless: The Quest for Personal Power and From Loneliness to Love: A Journey of Spiritual Awakening.
