Namaskar. I honor your inner divinity! In this video, you can learn about my story, philosophy and community.
My name is Gustavo Monje and my spiritual name is Krsnatma, which means, “the essence of the divine attraction.”
When I was 17, I rode a bus to Ohio for a college interview. I sat next to a quiet man, who read most of the night.
“Would you like something to eat?” I offered in the morning.
“No, thank you. I can’t take food right now,” he said. “I haven’t done my meditation yet. I’m a monk.”
I was stunned by his answer. I didn’t realize then, that as I took an interest in what he did and shared with him things about myself, I was seeking a path that would lead to the most subtle aspect of my being. My spiritual journey began.
Three weeks later, I would drive halfway across the country to meet him at my first retreat, where I learned Tantric meditation. Today, I teach meditation, organize weekly gatherings, make videos on Tantra and am an emotional fitness coach. I connect individuals, from all over the world, to find meditation instruction and a community where they can nurture their spiritual growth.
I’m still friends with the monk I met on the bus, and over the years, have completed spiritual trainings in ashrams from Willow Springs, MO to District Bokaro, India. My Youtube channel, Tantra Thoughts, will give you an introduction to the ancient spiritual science of Tantra. I’d love to help you advance on your spiritual journey through free meditation coaching which includes: learning from a teacher, weekly online meditations, and engaging with an online spiritual community (Vistara Circle).
As an emotional fitness coach, I can help you learn from negative emotions rather than bypass them, commit to personal growth, teach you to create a congenial environment for yourself and others, deal with systemic forces that deteriorate your mental health, and teach you to hold yourself accountable for your own personal growth.
Aside from my coaching work, I’ve enjoyed being a full time college professor of English for the past 17 years. I write songs and recently released a full album of kirtan music called, “Serenade to the Universe.” I hold a masters degree in Elementary Education and a graduate certificate in Professional Writing and Rhetoric. I’m currently working on my doctorate in Visionary Practice and Regenerative Leadership. Thank you for visiting my website. Namaskar!
