“Satsang with Giten is heaven. In satsang with Giten, samadhi is knocking on the door.”
– Padma, participant in satsang with Giten during 4 years.
SWAMI DHYAN GITEN, spiritual teacher and best-selling author, has more than 30 years of experience in individual counseling and in teaching awareness and meditation.
He has been speaking and teaching about the inner silence and how to reach it through love, joy, meditation, awareness, relationships and creativity.
Swami Dhyan Giten has dedicated his life to teaching the art of awareness and meditation. He conducts individual consultations, satsang and courses internationally. His quotes, articles and books have touched the hearts of thousands and are appearing with increasing frequency in magazines, blogs and websites.
He is trained in modern psychology at the University of Stockholm, where the head teacher at the psychological institution called Giten “the salt of the earth”, and a classmate said that Giten “did not move an inch from who he is”. He is also trained in classic Eastern methods for awareness and meditation in the USA, Italy, Sweden and India.
Giten’s first professional passion when he was 15 years old was to become an actor. After training as an actor, he worked as an actor until he was 23 years old. Working as actor taught him a lot about life and to emphatically understand the situation and life of other people, since acting is really a spiritual occupation. It taught him about spirituality, since working as an actor means to play a role totally, while at the same time as you know deep down that you are not the role you are playing. After working as an actor for a number of years, Giten began to understand that his early passion for theatre was really an unconscious search for a spiritual discipline. When he realized this, he began to feel a thirst to work with people in a more direct way in awareness and meditation.I
Giten experienced his first satori, his first glimpse of spiritual awakening, when he was 9 years old. This created a deep thirst and longing in his heart and being to return to this natural and effortless experience of being one with the Whole.
In 1982, when Giten was 23 years old, he was directed by the Divine presence in a trance session with the American trance chancellor Lin David Martin: “You have listened to your intuition, to your true inner voice, more than most. You have been searching for the contact with the Spirit for a long time and now it is beginning to manifest on the outer plane. You have been gifted many times in previous embodiments and now everything will come rather easy for you. I want you to put your energy into the lives of others, because you can.”
A spiritual teacher, who has counseled thousands of people, told Giten in 1984: “You will dissolve into the silence. All the earlier enlightened Masters and all the small Deva’s are just here to help you to get enlightened.”
He does not belong to any spiritual group or tradition; he is only interested to explore what it means to live with open eyes.
In satsang, Giten has talked about a variety of topics of concern for the modern man during satsang for example love, joy, relationships, acceptance, understanding, intuition, healing, trust, creativity, friendship, spiritual growth, evolution, society, life, meditation, silence, spirituality, mysticism, psychology, truth, wisdom, death, unity with life, God and enlightenment. He has also talked about a number of spiritual teachers and traditions such as Vedanta, Yoga, Tantra, Veda, Upanishads, Ayurveda, the chakra system, Tao, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Patanjali and Jesus Christ.
He is author of the best-selling book in Swedish “Meditationens Sång – Om meditation, relationer och andlig kreativitet” (available on Akademibokhandeln.se, Bokus.com, Adlibris.com and Amazon), “When the Drop becomes the Ocean: A Journey to the Ocean, to the Divine” (available globally on Amazon and Barnes & Noble), “The Silent Whisperings of the Heart – An Introduction to Giten’s Approach to Life” (available globally on Amazon and Barnes & Noble), Presence – Working from Within.
