Aischwarya Devi Mary Soukoulis - Bio

aischwarya-devi-mairy-soukouli-01Aischwarya Devi, born by the name of Mary Soukoulis, is the mother of four spiritual, energetic and creative children. For a long time she has been living and working in Athens, Greece, but her spiritual path began in the city of Thessaloniki at a very young age, when she met her Gugu, Paramahmsa Satyananda. Her teacher initiated her to the spiritual path of Yoga and she later received her spiritual name, Aischwarya Devi. Her progress and development since then is full of continuous teachings and wisdom, practice and Yoga techniques, travel, life in Ashrams, further initiations and all the spiritual esoteric teachings through which a student on her way to the light of truth must pass.

Her journey began with African dance. She lived and worked in Africa for some time. Later, in 1981, she travelled to America where she lived and worked in the field of dance and choreography for 2 years. She returned to Athens in 1983 and from her base there, she often travelled to India and Europe with the purpose of furthering her personal spiritual development. In 1987 she founded a Ballet school in Chalandri, Athens, where for the following 10 years she often hosted events, inviting several spiritual teachers from Greece to make presentations on Yoga. Throughout those years Aischwarya Devi continued to be student of Yoga.aischwarya-devi-mairy-soukouli-02

Her meeting with Christos Themeliotis, a great philosopher of Christian Esotericism, was the second most important step in her spiritual path. Living and working beside him for the following 15 years she acquired immense experience and knowledge in the esoteric metaphysical aspect of Christianity. With the help of this wise soul, a spiritual and philosophical genius in esoteric Christianity, she received a great deal of information in spiritual initiations and to this day she passes these on to her students with great devotion.

At the start of 1999 she began a different journey of ascetic life, which lasted a year and a half. It was during this time of relative isolation and distance from the usual daily comforts and city life, of constant Christian prayer and the practice of Yoga and Yogic soul cleansing techniques that Aischwarya received the initiation which directed her to begin to teach Yoga and thus carve a new path in her life.

In the same year she received an invitation to begin to offer Master Choa Kok Sui’s Pranic Healing to the rest of Greece, with the help of Italian Richardo, the only Pranic Healer and teacher present in Greece at the time. Aischwarya has since received a number of healing initiations in Pranic Therapy and currently works as a Pranic Psychotherapist.

She has over the years made various presentations and speeches on Greek Television, the radio and relevant magazines, speaking on all the spiritual matters she has worked on in depth, in an effort to share her knowledge with the general public, thereby contributing to the betterment of our society and the elevation of the human spirit.aischwarya-devi-mairy-soukouli-04

Today she is a making a timely and powerful effort to transmit the global message of compassion, love and communication to the whole world, to people who seek to understand their own lives and their inner self, regardless of gender or religion. She travels and offers teachings and therapy to all of Greece, as well as across the world, to all those who will come near her with the need for a different live perspective and for therapy from their hardships and difficulties and the noxious energy especially concentrated in modern cities and negatively affecting us all.

To this end, she is embarking on an important and widely beneficial to the Greek public, collaboration with the autonomous spiritual community Gayatri Paritwar of the University of Dev Sanskriti Vishwavidyalaya, one of the most prestigious universities in the holy land of Rishikesh of North India. This collaboration will lead to the creation of an equally prestigious School for Yoga Teachers in Athens, entailing frequent visits from distinguished Indian teachers of the University to the Athens School with the aim of sharing their invaluable knowledge and the spiritual power of the Gayatri Paritwar with the students.
