If your consciousness is constantly affected by fear, anger, anxiety, sadness, frustration, then Meditation, Mantra and Tantra can help. Meditation, Mantra and Tantra are ancient spiritual tools that offers us extraordinary possibilities for the cultivation, transformation and development of our spiritual consciousness.
Inappropriate fight, flight, freeze responses can and does interfere with our higher evolution. Meditation, Mantra and Tantra are powerful ways to cultivate higher consciousness, offering us a path towards wellness, healing and wholeness, by recovering what it means to be both human and divine while taking into account that we also have lower, animal instincts that require our awareness and transformation.
Our expertise uses Meditation, Mantra and Tantra as a form of spiritual alchemy, that is, to transform our lower, instinctual nature into higher, spiritual sensitivities. This is the metaphor of changing copper into gold that ancient alchemists took literally. In our school, we work on our selves, our own nature, not some external object. And, in doing so, we effectively learn how to become free of the past, so that our past experiences are not eating away at our present happiness.
In our approach to spirituality, we actively seek to understand, realize, develop and fulfill the total Self, that is, in all its dimensions. We look to integrate the physical, psychological, psychic, spiritual, emotional, mental dimensions together with states of consciousness that are accessed through the types of practices we teach, which is why we seek to develop perspective and presence along with our practice.
We are not interested in spiritual practice for its own sake, because spiritual practice can be used to run away from our emotional pain and the problems it can causes in our lives, eating away at our capacity for joy. While there is value in using spiritual practice to gain respite from our pain, in our approach, we will be teaching how to use spiritual practice together with perspective and presence to get to the roots of our pain and our problems and address in ways that are deeper and more thorough.
Please keep in mind that our approach is not in place of therapy or medical treatment for any condition. Psychotherapy and medical science offer us amazing possibilities to heal and deal with various conditions. What we offer in our school is a spiritual dimension to wellness and an understanding of the self that seeks a deeper fulfillment in life.

What is often the case, and we may not consciously realize it, is that the coping mechanisms of our brain, though well intentioned by nature, can be negatively affecting our present moment capacity to absorb experiences. The Golden Path is my newest and most effective method that applies The Yoga of Sound, both Mantra and Tantra to this process. And it can be streamlined effectively so that we can heal the emotional wounds that affect our spiritual enlightenment. This type of healing process cannot take the place of therapy or medication, but it can fill a gap.
His main tools are Meditation, Mantra and Tantra that he discovered during his training as a monk in India and which he has taught at the graduate and post-graduate levels as well on conference stages around the world that he has shared with the great spiritual luminaries of our time. He has discovered Mantra and Tantra to be powerful aids to meditation because they help overcome obstacles to meditation by addressing underlying conditions, such as, distraction, restlessness, and negative emotions. He teaches how to use spiritual tools help to cultivate a calmness of mind by healing the heart of its emotional wounds.
Mantra and Tantra is not for everyone, but these powerful tools can be coupled with Meditation and streamlined and adapted to address a person's specific needs taking into consideration their specific spiritual proclivities, including his or her core beliefs.
Mantra and Tantra can help with deeply lodged energy patterns known as saṁskāras (behavioral traits from the perspective of Karma), which are often problematic because of the residual effects of negative life experiences that remain with us until we transform outmoded mental patterns.
Mantra and Tantra can also be used to increase the quality and quantity of our energy. We need nourishment for our soul, and mantras are vibrations that enhance our spiritual states of consciousness. They also awaken energy in our spiritual energy centers, the chakras, to facilitate powerful transformations in our lives.
Most of all, Mantra and Tantra quite effective in dealing with the residual effects of trauma, for healing deep spiritual wounds (grief, loss, painful experiences); to address various kinds of restlessness in our soul (that can sometimes show up as anxiety); to deal with states of spiritual disempowerment (that can sometimes show up as depression or sadness); and to enhance our relationships that can otherwise be negatively affected because we have not dealt with our own pain sufficiently.
Keep in mind that Russill is neither a psychotherapist nor a trained medical professional. His approach is spiritual and does not take the place of medication, treatment or therapy. Not only does he have 30 years of teaching experience in the US and internationally at many prestigious and respected educational institutions, but he also uses Mantra and Tantra effectively in dealing with his own childhood trauma.
The Tantric Path is for anyone who needs a dynamic solution to their spiritual conditions and problems that are causing obstruction in their life and preventing happiness and a deep fulfillment in the soul.

In 2020, we are excited not only to bring our Yogic Mystery School and School of Mantra students together in a live setting, but thrilled to co-present this retreat in collaboration with renowned Oxford scholar, author, and teacher, Andrew Harvey.
Even though we are grounded in Indian spirituality and the Hindu Tantra, ours is an inter-spiritual approach. We draw from the world's great spiritualities to inform our perspective and practice.
Yogic Mystery School ™ was founded in 2008 and presently offers the student my almost 30 years of professional experience in teaching spirituality at the highest levels of education, study in the ancient and authentic traditions of Indian spirituality, and world-renowned exposure in the music industry and literary fields.
After 15 years of teaching spirituality in graduate and doctorate spirituality programs, in addition to presenting through seminars, conferences, workshops and retreat throughout the US, Canada and internationally, I founded Yogic Mystery School ™ to offer online courses through sustained engagement with students, facilitating depth learning and experience through an exclusive curriculum, and training students skillfully in the spiritual techniques that I had myself practiced and honed over decades.
The essence of my work has always been the relationship between sound and consciousness. Although I came to this experience as musician, yogi and philosopher, the process took on related areas, such as the expression of the speaking voice in addition to the chanting voice and singing voice. The Yoga of Sound is my unique platform, and I embody it in its full scope, from the Vedic, Tantric and Bhakti traditions, to the fourth, and least known tradition, of Nada Yoga.
What is unique to my approach is the combination of world-class musicianship together with rigorous scholarship and immersion in monastic practice. My CD series on The Yoga of Music and Chant through The Relaxation Company (now on Sounds True) displays the depth of the vibrational experience I can communicate. And my books, The Yoga of Sound: Tapping the Hidden Power of Music and Chant, and Jesus in the Lotus: The Mystical Doorway Between Christianity and Yogic Spirituality, both published through New World Library, demonstrates my knowledge as a scholar, monk and yogi.
Now, after almost three decades of teaching in America, and worldwide, at some of the most highly respected educational institutions in the world, I have developed an extensive and exclusive curriculum for Yogic Mystery School ™. The umbrella under which I now share the full scope of my knowledge is that of The Tantric Path. This is a spiritual lifestyle that brings together healing, enlightenment and transformation in dynamic relationship with one another.
My wife, Asha, and I, who have been married for 29 years, have been practicing a branch of Tantra known as Sri Vidya that is both ancient and secretive. Our mission now is to share a version of Tantra with others to create a healthy and holistic spiritual model for the new millennium. We want to be innovative in helping westerners gain the most from this path while being grounded in tradition. This is our vision: the total transformation of self through a healthy lifestyle and through integrating high levels of spiritual consciousness in daily life, while being engaged in the world.
Each year, for the past 20 years, we take a group of our students to India, to immerse in the experiences and environments that have fed our spiritual lives.
We hope you can join us.
In One Spirit,
Russill (aka Anirud)
