About Devi Mohan
Devi Mohan is a certified Yoga Instructor (E-RYT 200), Director and senior teacher of Himalayan School of Traditional Yoga (HSTY), President of an internationally active charity ACT Foundation and an integral member of the international spiritual mission of her husband and Spiritual Master Mohanji from its onset in 2007.
Aside from conducting regular Yoga sessions in Slovenia, where she resides, Devi conducts Yoga workshops and seminars internationally, participates in Mohanji Retreats and spiritual pilgrimages (Peru, Tibet, India, Bosnia, etc.) organized by Mohanji Foundation. Moreover, she is an ardent supporter of international peace initiatives (such as Peace Pledge Project and Parliament of World’s Religions) and is very passionate about serving inner and outer peace through Himalayan School of Traditional Yoga, experiential spirituality, social service and overall sharing of experiences, love and wisdom.
As the first disciple and wife of a Spiritual Master, Devi consciously chose to walk a nonconformist path of experiential spirituality (Path of Pathlessness) at all times doing her best to truly live what she preaches.
Be it by performing sacred Energy Transfers during Mohanji’s meditations, teaching Yoga, selfless service through ACT Foundation, or by being an instrument of Mai-Tri Healing, Devi’s highest aim is to move beyond all identities as a pure instrument of the Divine, eventually merging with the Supreme.
Her cosmopolitan outlook, several years of working experience in the United Nations, experience of war in former Yugoslavia, great ups and downs of life (including a refugee experience in 1991, near-death experience in 1999, years of life in Italy, USA, Middle East and frequent travels to India and other parts of the world), made Devi passionate about serving the cause of peace.
As someone who got greatly affected by war since childhood days, Devi spent years of education and sincere spiritual seeking in order to find the way of serving peace effectively. She eventually came to recognize that her contribution lies in the inner journey of individuals - by helping people achieve actual inner purification, transformation and awakening, breaking the prison of the mind and ego-identity. This is achieved through experiential spiritual path of opening the heart, ‘going vertical’ and blossoming through selfless service and expansion in consciousness. This is how Devi chooses to live her purpose, her dharma.
