Notable Teacher, Scholar, Author and Practitioner,聽 Christopher Hareesh Wallace pictured here. Hareesh wrote the book Tantra Illuminated, about the little-understood spiritual tradition of Tantric Shaivism.聽 He recently finished his second book, The Recognition Sutras, in which he presented his translation and explanation of the 1,000-year-old spiritual masterpiece Pratyabhij帽膩-h峁沝aya, 鈥淭he Essence of the Recognition Philosophy.鈥

There's a new generation of professional scholars of the Yoga tradition who are also practitioners, and he is of that small but growing community. We deeply honor and revere his masterful grasp of the Tantras and his ability to breakdown the complexity for us to receive in grace.
