ThaiVedic embraces a non-dual philosophy of tantra that all of life is imbibed with an energy of oneness that connects everything and everyone. This energy is a goodness without opposite and its auspiciousness continues to guide all of creation.
Teachers of ThaiVedic are trained to inspire oneness and awaken you to this universal guidance that is present in your heart and every cell of your body. They inspire a playful acceptance of the many facets of life, and joyfully encourage their students to evolve toward wholesome balance, and the guidance of our supreme oneness nature.
