Lorin Roche 40 K

Meditation is a built-in ability we all have.
There are skills you can learn to enhance this ability.
The Radiance Sutras presents 112 doorways to meditation –
You can enter through the rhythm of breath, the rhythm of dancing,
reveling in music, delighting in food, resting in prayer,
gazing in wonder at nature, making love,
or savoring energy flows in your body.
Find your door.

"I LOVE, I mean I truly LOVE Lorin Roche’s Radiance Sutras; his beautifully poetic rendition of the classic Vijñāna Bhairava text that has been handed down to us by the Kashmir nondual tradition. Lorin offers us a translation that should be savored, word-by-word, slowly, deliciously, like the five-star meal it is, that’s served with only the finest and rarest of wines. His words capture the essential perfume of the indescribable mystery that is our essential nature, which has given birth to each of us, that underlies the entire cosmos. The Radiance Sutras is a book that will bring you endless days and nights of delight, joy and wonder. Certainly, this is one book I’d want if ever I was stranded on a desert island. This is a must have for your reading table, to keep close by, to savor, that reminds us of the mystery of love incarnate that we and everything around us is." – Richard Miller, Author of Yoga Nidra.

“If you love Rumi, Hafiz, The Tao, if you love words dancing out of the mystery, welcome to The Radiance Sutras: these are among the most profound, exquisite and luminous verses you will ever read.” – Jack Kornfield, Author of A Path With Heart

"Lorin Roche's rendition of the Vijnana Bhairava is truly radiant, filled with insight and poetry, and illumined by the power of his practice." – Sally Kempton, author of
Awakening Shakti: The Transformative Power of the Goddesses of Yoga

“Like feeling and reading Shakti in print. I read a little bit each day, then close my eyes and do the exercise, or ponder the thought. I let the warm sweet loving words and imagery wash and heal my many layers of self.” – Lilias Folan

"Lorin Roche's
Radiance Sutras present the most inspiring translation of the Vijnana Bhairava Sutras I have ever encountered. It is juicy, hip, intelligent, inspiring and the best companion for your daily life. We all need daily reminders to "Celebrate the boundary where body meets infinity.” This book is a must read! – Margot Anand, author of The Art of Sexual Ecstasy.

"Lorin Roche is a tantric troubadour! His engaging and lively version of The Radiance Sutras captures the joy and spontaneity of the original Sanskrit and is a unique window onto the meditative experience." – David Gordon White, author of
The Alchemical Body

"Following the contours and resonances of the original Sanskrit terms, Dr. Lorin Roche has created a masterwork of sound and meaning. Building on the classic study of Paul Reps, who recognized the linkage between Buddhism and Kashmir Shaivism, and with homage to Swami Lakshmanjoo, the late great teacher of this sacred Tantric tradition, Roche has titled each verse, given a detailed account of each word, and provided an expansive translation that invites the reader into the state of total presence. Enjoy this work of love!" – Christopher Key Chapple, Doshi Professor of Indic and Comparative Theology and Director, Master of Arts in Yoga Studies, Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles.

Find What Works For You



There are hundreds of techniques for meditating. The Radiance Sutras describes 112. If you want to thrive in meditation and get the benefits – relaxation in action, clarity of mind, resistance to stress-related illness, a happy heart – then select the techniques that feel natural to you. You will love the ones that go with your nature. You will know when you have found your meditation practice because you are meditating every day and enjoying yourself, and the benefits are flowing throughout your life.

You don’t have to change yourself.
You don’t have to sit still.
You don’t have to sit cross-legged.
You don’t have to make your mind blank.
You don’t have to calm down.
The more real with yourself you are, the better.

The essence of meditation is simple: select some aspect of life’s self-renewing rhythm that you love, and dive in. Allow your love to attract you inward toward the essence of inspiration.

As with any love relationship, there are skills to learn.

Human bodies are naturally good at meditation. It’s a built-in instinct. Learning to meditate is a process of studying your natural pathways, and letting your muscle memory take you inside. This is the easy part.

There are two big challenges in learning to meditate:
1. Finding the technique that suits your individuality. There are thousands of different practices, something for everyone. There is no one technique suitable for everyone.
2. Learning to tolerate the intense sensations that arise in relaxation, because in meditation, you can relax and rest more deeply than in sleep. This happens very quickly, in minutes, because the body knows how to revitalize and heal itself.

If you want to explore meditation and find what works for you, we have great tools: there are wonderful books, audio programs. Guided meditations. Come on in and explore. We offer private sessions, online classes, and retreats.

I have been teaching meditation for more than 40 years and have a Ph.D. in meditation research from the University of California. I delight in helping people find what works for them, out of all the thousands of different approaches to meditation.
