“Yoga is a living tradition. Lorin is on the front lines as a meditation teacher, a champion of natural meditation, of awakening consciousness everywhere, in all places, in all times. He is bringing over into the Western world the deepest teachings of Tantra, giving them voice to sing out clearly.” Shiva Rea, Samudra School of Living Yoga
“Lorin Roche really knows his stuff.” Jack Kornfield, co-founder of the Insight Meditation Society and of the Spirit Rock Meditation Center.
“Lorin Roche is probably the friendliest meditation teacher in America.” James Fadiman, cofounder of the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology."
The Radiance Sutras is a fresh translation of an ancient Tantra Yoga text, the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, a love song between Devi and Bhairava, (Shakti and Shiva) in which they sing the classic tantra, chakra, kundalini, mantra, mudra practices, and many more.
“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
“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
“This is my favorite text of all time.” —Shiva Rea

Lorin’s Other SitesThis site has gotten a bit too large, thousands of pages, so I have created a couple other sites focused on specific areas:
Meditation 24-7 is oriented toward Workshop and Class notes, with sections on the 21 senses, the instincts, and the Journey of Meditation.
Bija.biz has notes on meditation teacher training.
Bhairavatantra.com focuses on The Radiance Sutras and has some notes.
vijnanabhairavatantra.com is a new site and I am putting up some VBT-related notes
Spanda.us has some notes about pulsation and the theme of the Return -
Shrutam.com is redundant, a practice site.
Instinctivemeditation.com is mostly just a mirror site to lorinroche.com
svarasa.com has articles and essays.
