On June 20 Sister Shivani, an internationally renowned inspirational speaker, begins a 14-city speaking tour of North America with the theme of “Awakening.” Sister Shivani presents spiritual solutions to the complex problems of contemporary life through a TV program called Awakening with Brahma Kumaris and a YouTube channel with over 33 million views and over 160,000 subscribers.
Sister Mohini, Regional Coordinator of the Brahma Kumaris for the Americas, explains the focus of the tour: “These programs are about spiritual awakening that is, awakening to the true self. We all have an inner potential which we are unaware of. When we awaken to it, we can use it in life. Spirituality is the process of awakening to our inner peace, our inner strength, and our purpose in life. Awakening to our spiritual resources brings clarity and comfort about what is in front of us now and what our future will bring.” The tour is intended to encourage people to discover and develop their inner resources to resolve conflicts and improve relationships and performance. A spiritual “awakening” can open doorways to new types of solutions and higher levels of freedom and satisfaction.
Sister Shivani practices Raja Yoga Meditation as taught by the Brahma Kumaris (brahmakumaris.us). She became a popular presenter on the Awakening with Brahma Kumaris TV show by applying Raja Yoga to the common challenges of life. Her unique blend of common sense practicality and unarguable spiritual principles has endeared her to an international audience thirsty for solutions that really work.
Sister Shivani has traveled throughout India, UK, Asia Pacific, Africa and Middle East to conduct lectures, workshops, and TV and radio shows on themes such as emotional intelligence, leadership skills, parenting and relationships, self-realization and the practical technique of Raja Yoga Meditation.
