Shane Perkins

May 27, 2010

Shane is an instructor and co-founder of the Yandara Yoga Institute in Baja Mexico since 2004. Shane finds his inspiration through being a reflection for devine love in all things. He is also a surfer and musician that flows from the warmth of his heart.

Shane was raised at SKMC Meditation Center in Bowling Green, Virginia. He received initiation to a formal meditation practice at age four, and studied and traveled with Sant Darshan Singh each year for over ten years,deeply touched by his power of living in love. At age twenty-one Shane spent two years as an apprentice with John P Milton, training in wilderness liberation and Qi gong (energy cultivation). This training included solo retreats ranging in length from two to twenty-eight days. It was during this time that Shane had his first experience of non-duel awareness, which changed his life forever.

Seeking to integrate this mystical knowledge, Shane continued with teacher trainings and workshops with other gracious teachers such as Rodney Yee, Shiva Rea, and Doug Swenson. A six month pilgrimage in India and Nepal took him deep into Tibetan Buddhist meditation with a passion for integrating the two truths; conventional and ultimate reality.
