Alive and Shine Center offers a unique form of meditation that teaches common sense techniques for releasing stress, increasing intuition, and welcoming gentle and peaceful transformation. Unlike other forms of meditation, there is not an initial attempt to quiet the mind. Instead, by using what we call “Light Energy Meditation Snacks,” the mind’s gifts of concentration and imagination are used to focus on the light in the Heart Center, the home of your spirit in your body. Once the Heart Center starts to open and your connection to your spirit becomes stronger, your body and your life begin to heal and return to wholeness. This process unfolds as you deepen your meditation practice.
Alive & Shine Center offers a variety of meditation class formats:
- Ongoing meditation classes
- Workshops on the weekends taught by Alive & Shine Center teachers and Savitri
- Teacher training programs that integrate meditation
- Online store with specialized products that support your growth
Concentrate in the heart. Enter into it; go within and deep and far, as far as you can. Gather all the strings of your consciousness that are spread abroad, roll them up and take a plunge and sink down. A fire is burning there in the deep quietude of the heart. It is the Divinity in you – your true being. Hear its voice, follow its dictates. - The Mother, Pondicherry, India
Ongoing Meditation Classes One hour guided meditation classes offered several times a week. Learn to focus the energy of the mind and connect with your Spirit in your Heart Center through guided imagery and meditation. See Ongoing Class Schedule

Welcoming the Light 1 – Your Relationship with Yourself
This 10-hour weekend immersion is taught by Savitri, co-owner of Alive & Shine Center and the creator of the Meditation program at Alive and Shine Center.
The primary source of your greatest struggles is a disconnected relationship with yourself. This course will enhance the relationship with yourself so you experience more joy. Savitri will teach the Light Energy Meditation Snacks, which came to her through prayer for her own personal growth and healing. These unique meditations help you create Light energy throughout your day. In this course, and by practicing the Meditation Snacks, you will learn how to:
- Tap into the fountain of youth which is actually in your own body, in a sacred place. Learn the secret to true longevity and the source of your fountain of youth.
- Understand your Soul’s perspective of wealth and its purpose in your life. True abundant wealth flows when you live from love and joy.
- Make decisions clearly. All day long you are faced with making decisions and choices. This course will realign you by creating a focused mind so you can make clear decisions.
- Cultivate your intuition. All successful people claim to have intuition; “I just had a feeling.” Learn the difference between gut feelings and the feelings that come from the wisdom of your heart.
- Feel safe, comfortable and protected. Meditation is not about isolating yourself from the world. Learn how to feel safe so that you can live life fully.
- Hold your body and life in a positive energy ball. Learn to create an energetic field, which is your billboard to the world to experience the life you are here to live.

Savitri is a Meditation and Kundalini Master, who, along with her husband Aadil, is co-director of The College of Purna Yoga and Alive and Shine Center, in Bellevue, Washington. She teaches Purna Yoga Meditation, a profound meditation based on her inner contact with great masters, using simple techniques applicable in day-to-day life.
By age 21, after the sudden death of her parents in a plane crash and the violent death of her sister, Savitri deeply wanted to understand why God would allow these seemingly terrible things to happen. Prompted by these traumatic events, she began to pray. Her sincere desire to understand what had happened to her family led Savitri to what would become her life’s work.
Savitri has taught meditation since 1992 and was voted the most influential spiritual teacher in the Northwest by the readers of Conscious Choice magazine. Thousands around the world use her techniques daily to welcome their souls more deeply into their bodies.
