Shashi Kumar is the founder of Mystic School, Mysore. He has been a spiritual seeker since birth. In his childhood he learnt Yoga and Vedas and has always been passionate towards spiritual activities. At the pivotal age of 16, his mother passed away and this ignited his spiritual quest for understanding the mysteries of life. This intense seeking led him to travel to Bali, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Osho Ashram Pune and Dharmsala.
In his youth, he practiced many kinds of meditations. He has been trained in facilitating Osho meditation and therapies from the Osho Multiversity, Pune. He also learnt and practised various forms of massage like ayurvedic, Thai, Esalen, Balinese, etc.. and with 8 years of his experience, he has invented his own form known as “Zen somatics massage”. Having achieved black belt in Japanese Karate and obtaining national champion for 3 years, Shashi still felt he was missing something. This began a fascination with the disciplines of internal martial arts, Qi gong, Tai chi, Thai yoga massage, Hatha Yoga and other similar subjects.
His quest to understand the dimension of death led him to study the “The Tibetan Book of the Dead”. He has participated in many living and dying courses conducted by Veetman, his Bardo teacher, and was a much sought after disciple to him. He has given a few talks on “Bardo” on TV9, a Kannada channel.
His multi-dimensional passion encouraged him to create a place known as “Mystic School”, a space for spiritual practice and also a place to relax and chill out.
